SEVEN OF PENTACLES, LORD OF SUCCESS UNFULFILLED

Saturn in Taurus, Venus in Netzach

   Your ally is pausing to reflect at a moment when all of his hard work is about to come to fruition. He is experiencing the influences of Saturn in Taurus and Venus in Netzach. The presence of Saturn suggests that anyone who wishes to manifest something on the the physical plane must plan and organize and demonstrate the appropriate discipline, expending the mental and physical effort necessary to manifest ideas or realize dreams. The influence of Venus suggests the element of desire, which is essential aspect of motivation, and Taurus suggests the power of the life-force moving slowly but steadily. At this stage, your ally’s success is only unfulfilled in the sense that the fruits of his labor have not yet had sufficient time to ripen. He has worked hard and done what is necessary for his labor to succeed, and he shows a sense of satisfaction as he gazes at the pentacles. The pentacles, growing like melons, symbolize any work that one strives to accomplish, physically, emotionally, mentally, or spiritually. The principle extends to all areas: work, relationships, the arts, spiritual attainment. Desire, planning, organizing, and effort are required in all successful endeavors.
