Eight of Pentacles Tarot Card Description

Pentacles (also known as Coins) are pragmatic, down to earth Tarot Cards, they deal with money, career, housing or anything that is connected to the practical side of life. In numerology, the number Eight is associated with drive, success and power. When the number Eight and Pentacles appear together, ambition and results become very important.

Upright Meaning

When the Eight of Pentacles appears in your spread, you will have to work for the outcomes you desire. This may sound dreary, but it need not be. For example, if you are learning a new skill, you have to put some effort in, but the Eight of Pentacles suggests your efforts will be rewarded, either fiscally or with the pleasure of knowing you can do something well. This makes perfect sense in matters where there is a tangible outcome, but it applies to relationships too. In such a case, the Eight of Pentacles suggests that the only way you can get the relationship you desire is if the relevant parties are willing to work at things and compromise. The more you put into whatever it is that you are doing, the better the results will be. On the other hand, it could be that you are so good at what you do it has become a bit boring. Yes, you may be at the pinnacle of your career, but you need new challenges and something that you can get your teeth into. It may be that life has simply become too routine. If so, you need to spread your wings and see what new opportunities are out there for you. This could be the ideal time to learn a new skill, explore education or try a change of career. You can make a success of your plans, as long as you remain practical and organised. A hobby you embark on now, or in the near future, could also bring you a great deal of joy, as well as potentially supplementing your income. One word of warning though, this will not provide you with enough money to live on - yet. Financially, if you have been a little more careful than is usual, this can stand you in good stead, so try to keep it up.

Reversed Meaning

All the opportunities are there for you, but don’t expect to receive a gilded invitation to take them up, you need to be much more proactive than you have been recently. You seem to have become trapped in the mundane aspects of life, and this has had a detrimental effect on your long term planning, so you need to look up from the grindstone. Don’t waste your energy on short terms plans which produce fast results, but little profit.
