Eight of Pentacles


Eight of PentaclesThe figure in this card is carrying out a project. The planning is complete. He is in the midst of implementation.

Getting this card suggests that you are working hard to successfully complete something. You are finally at the point where you have something to show for all this work — a diploma, a manuscript, a piece of art, a gold record, a client. This card is telling you to keep up the good work. You are almost there. Don’t take the eye off the ball.

The Suit — Pentacles, Coins, or Diamonds

The pentacle is a symbol of earth magic. The coin is wealth and wages. The diamond is a symbol of wealth, pulled from the ground and refined by human hands into something enduring and elegant. This suit represents all things related to the earth. It represents the work of our hands. It represents those conspicuous signs of wealth that show us and our neighbors how successful we are, but this is merely material wealth. We can pass this on to the next generation, but it is worthless if we choose to bury it with ourselves.

Number — 8

Eight is a number of movement, power, and adjustment.
