Seven of Pentacles Tarot Card Meaning and Art Waite Smith Tarot Deck
About the Deck
Waite Smith Tarot Deck
Pivotal and canonical, this deck defined a new pattern that would be followed up to the present. I made a digitally retouched and painted version of this deck, which I call the "Vivid Waite Smith Tarot Deck". The cards from that deck, as well as a modern English translation of the romantic English descriptions by Arthur Edward Waite (as appear on the Waite Smith Tarot deck) appear in a cross-referenced format in my book, "A Concise Guide to the Tarot: In Vivid Color"
Designed by A.E. Waite and Illustrated by Pamela Colman Smith. England, 1911.

Meaning of Seven of Pentacles from the Waite Smith Tarot Deck
These are exceedingly contradictory; in the main, it is a card of money, business, barter; but one reading gives altercation, quarrels--and another innocence, ingenuity, purgation.
Cause for anxiety regarding money which it may be proposed to lend.
