Eight of Pentacles - Minor Arcana Card

Excerpt from Dark Days Tarot Guidebook by Emily Mundy:

Eight of Pentacles

This card is one of apprenticeship (actual or metaphorical), new skill, and refinement. The Eight of Pentacles indicates that you are entering an experience of re-beginning a type of education that carries a sense of renewal. You are practicing keen attention to detail and the sharpening of your senses as you stitch success into your near future. The final product will be one sewn from your own perseverance rather than the generosity of others. Though, with such sharp focus, be careful not to let your unyielding eyes go blind to innovation and change around you.

Suggested prompts:

upright: furthering education; abstract or concrete apprenticeship

right: quality work; engagement with new ideas

left: perfectionism; near-sightedness

reversed: dwindled ambition; laissez-faire attitude
