Vendredi: Seven of Diamonds

With this card, the general gist is that the querent, for whatever reason, has stepped back from what is beginning to look like a potentially successful endeavor.  It may be that they are simply taking a break or they may actually be reconsidering the entire thing.  Either way, this card is an obvious nudge.  The querent’s endeavor will pay off and they need to persevere in order to achieve that success.

Looking at the cards around the Seven of Diamonds is important when it shows up in a reading, but even more helpful is to find out where the querent’s anxiety about their project originates.  Are they awaiting word from a client or approval of a loan?  Have they simply hit a psychological roadblock?  Or is they’re concern that they may actually find success which can at times be more frightening than failure.  Many of us have unfortunately programmed, sometimes from childhood, to believe that we do not deserve success and I have found that this is the all too frequent reason for the Seven of Diamonds rearing its head.

Whatever the case, it is time for you as the reader to become the coach.  Particularly if other cards in the spread are encouraging, help your querent to see that success is not the enemy and it may very well be within their reach.  There’s no promise that the journey will be easy, but it will be worth it.  Vendredi heureux ~

I think we can all use a nudge every now and then, Pauline...

Or a push over the cliff, depending.
