Eight of Pentacles (Reversed) General meaning

When you invest, this card continues to indicate that you are very involved in a task and that you are really achieving achievements for it, without a doubt your dedication and will are achieving the results you were looking for …

But what if you have become obsessed with such improvement that it is putting some aspects of your life in danger?

Whether it’s work, financial, or relationship-enhancing work, a posture of relentless perfectionism can complicate things.

You have become attached to a way of doing things, that is your way, and if the rules change, it is very difficult for you to move from that comfort zone where you largely dominate your skills and have full capabilities.

Sometimes you have to innovate, make corrections , there are always unforeseen events, new positions and points of view, elements that we had not taken into account, and attached to your way of doing, perfectionism can become a very big obstacle that endangers your success and in this way, you end up being your worst enemy for the achievement you wanted to achieve.

The 8 of gold asks you to be looser, more open , not to be afraid of making a fool of yourself, to allow yourself trial and error, that you do not need to be in control all the time and that many times you only learn based on errors and tests.

This becomes very important, for example when you must do or start a new and unknown task or activity, you must not allow the fear of making a mistake and being ridiculed by your inexperience or lack of knowledge on the subject take you out of the game.

In another aspect, this reverse card can indicate that although you give 100 percent and your commitment is total, the results take time to appear or are not achieved, which fills you with frustration and disappointment, leading you to think about what you are doing wrong that you do not get results.

Well, there is a fine line between dedication and stubbornness, and just sometimes in life we ​​are putting energy into something that whatever we do is never going to change.

This can be a job or a loving relationship, in which no matter how hard you try, nothing seems to improve. At this point you must have the wisdom to know when to give up your effort, or perhaps ask yourself if you are not putting and wasting your actions in the wrong direction.

Maybe you are focusing on very fine details, very perfectionist and you don’t see the bigger picture, the bigger picture. You have been stubborn and focused on only part of the problem and not the whole.

For example: You sell pizzas and you think that the few sales are due to the fact that the sauce is not correct and you insist on improving that, when perhaps the problem is in the way you advertise your product, the customer service or everything set! So when something isn’t working for you, you need to ask questions and look at a broad spectrum.

In a more negative aspect , the 8 of golds can indicate that you lack initiative and ambition, you settle for things as they are and do not seek to improve or acquire new skills and knowledge. You are looking for quick results, the shortest path and immediate satisfaction… the hard work of achieving better results is not in your plans at the moment!

Therefore, if what you get does not satisfy you, you should review this attitude and ask yourself when you are willing to involve and commit to achieve greater success and satisfaction.

Eight of Pentacles (Reversed) – In Love Tarot Reading

The 8 of pentacles in reverse is an indication that you, your partner or both are not doing what is necessary, doing the required work, so that the relationship improves and is overcome.

A relationship is not a parking lot where some just walk in, park and be happy for life forever. Relationships are worked, perfected and built, there is no other way.

You can only control what you do, so forget for a moment what the other party is doing and do their best, and see what happens. Try it yourself without waiting or asking for the other, and then see if it is worth continuing the effort or not.

In another aspect it may mean that you, your partner or both are obsessed with changing something that is only a very small part of the grand scheme, it loses you in a trifling improvement that does not generate anything in the overall result.

If you are alone, the card indicates that you must work to find love. One does not open the door, love falls from the sky, you must go out, get involved, surround yourself with people and opportunities to meet people, because the more you have of it, the more chances you have.

Eight of Pentacles (Reversed) – In Job or Profession Tarot Reading

It is a card, still inverted, that signals change. Change can be indicated in two ways … on the one hand, perhaps you should give more of yourself, ambition and act more to achieve better results, things do not come alone and nobody gives anything away in this world, a lot always depends on you!

And on the other hand , the card can point out that it is a good time for you to leave or change that unsatisfactory job for a better one. It is a good time to do something on your own independently, cheer up and jump in. You’ll get more out there than in traditional job channels.

In another aspect, the card may indicate that you will have an extra work overload, your bosses and employers require more and more, even though you are already giving 110%. Analyze if so much dedication is worth it or if it does not bring you more than fatigue without any financial retribution.

Eight of Pentacles (Reversed) – In Money Tarot Reading

The 8 of diamonds reversed here indicates that you may be delusional a bit about money and how to get it. You look for quick solutions and are not willing to work too hard to achieve it.

Luck is not associated with this flip card so your dreams of winning the lottery and solving all your problems is possibly a fantasy that you must wake up from.

Success hits people sometimes and we find amazing stories of instant success stories, but on the whole, the ratio really is very low. All success is built with long work and dedication, there seems to be no other way.

It is time to wait and be patient. “Good things come to those who wait” goes the saying, and in this case it is very appropriate.

Eight of Pentacles (Reversed) – In Health Tarot Reading

The inverted 8 of Pentacles gives you impulses to react, since you do little work in taking some type of action in order to improve your health. There is always something that can be done to improve if you have the initiative to do so.

If you don’t know what to do to improve your overall health, or if you’re having worrisome symptoms and don’t know how to fix it, don’t hesitate to seek the help of a medical professional. Ignoring things does not lead to healing.

Eight of Pentacles (Reversed) – In Spirituality Tarot Reading

The inverse 8 of Pentacles, once again, urges some kind of action, even in the context of a spiritual question. This is not the time for quiet contemplation if you are seeking spiritual growth.

This is a time for taking steps, meeting new people, trying new approaches, going places, and opening up yourself… all of which “take a lot of work.” You can do it and the benefits you know can be enormous.

In Conclusion:

In an inverted position, the EIGHT OF PENTACLES means the absence of desires, ambitions, hypocrisy, falsehood, duality, futility, intrigue, vulgarity, mediocrity.
In the field of health, this card symbolizes the destructive effect of intellectual activity on the body, which can manifest itself in renal failure, headaches, high blood pressure. The inverted G8 also indicates stupidity, foolishness, sloppiness, lack of assembly.
