The Eight of Coins (Pentacles) shows a young man sitting on a wooden bench and toiling hard over eight pentacles. He is working very diligently to give shape to each of them. He has already successfully completed six of them and has just two more to go. He in engrossed completely in his job. A town can be seen in the background. However the young man has focused only on the task at hand and is not keen to let his attention wander anywhere else. In a way he has isolated himself so that he can accomplish his task. The card is all about progress and persistence – it is all about concentrating fully to accomplish a task in a perfect manner.

Upright Position: This card is all about learning, apprenticeship, craftsmanship and doing things right. It encourages a person to keep doing what she/he is doing and it will lead to success with time. However, dedication, determination, patience and concentration are must. This card in a reading may also indicate higher education or signal to brush up on professional skills. The card says that the seeker is on the right track and encourages to continue the journey which would eventually lead to success.

Reversed Position: Reversed, the card says that the seeker may not be satisfied with the job she/he is holding. It may also indicate insincerity and lack of ambition. Sometimes it may bring the news of unemployment. It may also suggest that the person is so preoccupied that it is leading to stagnancy – a change is required to welcome new ideas.
