The 3 of Wands reversed indicates that the growth of an enterprise is stunted or blocked and the ships just aren’t coming in. This card reversed represents delays, diminishing returns, unrealistic plans, wasted effort or blocked creativity. The 7 of Cups is the card of day dreaming and being lost in reverie and visions of what could be. It’s difficult to distinguish between fantasy and illusion and to make clear, logical choices. You might get lost in your visions and let your energy dissipate without making any progress on realistic solutions. The 5 of Pentacles is the card of insecurity with its picture of two beggars cold and hungry in the snow. It symbolizes misfortune, loss, scarcity, risky self-employment, hardship and disappointment.
With this combination of cards, I see a person who is not playing an active role and moving forward on tasks at work, not cooperating with colleagues and partners, not taking action on important projects. He or She is distracted or indulging themselves in activities to ward off the fears of insecurity they’re feeling today. Something is changing in your physical environment, but it’s scary and threatening because you don’t feel in control as you might usually. So, be aware that you have the propensity today to let yourself be distracted by dreams of success and visions of victory but they won’t come to pass without sincere effort as well as acknowledging the challenges and changes happening in your physical environment at work or at home.
