Eight of Pentacles (love reading)
Eight of Pentacles (upright) in Love
In a love context, if you are in a relationship, the Eight Pentacles indicates that you are putting a lot of strength and energy into your relationship. You are an adherent of strong and permanent relationships based on love and trust. Your efforts to turn into a lasting union.
The card indicates that you and your partner should be on track to achieve common goals. You may have to face a difficult financial situation, and take all the trouble to ensure a decent future for your family. Make sure to balance this workload with family life and spend enough time with your partner. Remember, you can’t make all the money.
The hero of the card is described as a hardworking person, and he does work not for himself, but for others. At the same time, it is important for him to be appreciated and rewarded. Delight, positive emotions, praise, material benefit – he is ready to accept all this for his work.
Therefore, often this card symbolizes a relationship where love is not required. Mutual respect and trust is enough for two people. In such cases, marriages of convenience turn out to be quite successful, when both partners consciously take this step, and treat the union as a work that gives pleasure.
They do not have lovers on the side, their sexual relationship, in the absence of romantic feelings, is quite suitable for both.
For those who are lonely, the Eight of Pentacles promises a pleasant period in life associated with new meetings. Or maybe the old relationship, which seemed to have outlived its usefulness, will begin to develop again at a different, more promising stage.
Eight of Pentacles (reversed) in Love
The Reverse Eight of Pentacles emphasizes that you are not making an effort when it comes to the fruitful development of your relationship. Perhaps a lack of commitment or just laziness interferes with the creative process on your part. Work life and the mood of work can negatively affect your relationship. Boredom and mild indifference arise.
When a relationship is just beginning to emerge, the concept of equality suddenly pops up in your head, and the urge to be the first to step forward instantly disappears. You stop reaching out for the person you like.
There is a reluctance to analyze the situation from the inside, you stop feeling a partner, while the standard development of relations does not suit you either, like “the candy-bouquet period is over, it’s time to act seriously.” Relationships begin to fade and there is a danger of their complete fading.
If you are single, the Eight of Pentacles reversed may indicate that you may lack confidence when it comes to meeting new people. Yes, you do not make much effort to the meetings themselves, in the fear that new people will make you feel bored and lethargic.
Again, this could also be a sign that you focus too much on your work and neglect your romantic side. If you want to meet someone special, you need to devote some time and energy to this aspect of your life. To get something, you need to make an effort.
