Rider Waite Smith Five of Pentacles Tarot Card Meaning

Eight of Pentacles


Work, work, work. The Eight of Pentacles gets down to the nitty gritty with the earthy, practical nature of pentacles. Here we see dilligence and focus personified in the main figure chiseling away at their pentacles. Six completed pentacles line the right side of the card, representing the headway already made. Much has been achieved already and, with steady work, much more can be added. This card shows us how staying in the moment and taking care of business yields solid results. Valuing work, productivity, skill and labor all appear in this card, as well as the joy and passion that we can bring to these tasks. 


Work, practice, skill, achievement, diligence, focus, security.
