The eight of pentacles for future, love and money readings

The Eight of Pentacles has a lonely sitting man surrounded by 8 coins. He makes the engraving in the form of a pentacle on each one. The background is a small town that is visible far away from the place where the man sits. Thus, he separated himself from the outside world to fulfill his mission. This is his only goal, and he is fully committed to this. He is focused, which eliminates the possibility of mistake. He goes to his goal and improves his skill set with each step, with each coin.

8 pentacles — general meaning


The Eight of Pentacles is a card of a student, who is undergoing a process of improving his knowledge. Most likely you have recently changed your workplace or education. Now you are applying all your strength to master your skills. Your lessons and practices take all your attention, and you are fully committed to this. You do repeating actions to improve yourself, which will undoubtedly lead you to success in the future.

Perhaps you are not learning new things, but are improving something that you have been able to do for a long time. For example, you have always cooked well and decided to study for a professional chef. If you only think about new education, do not hesitate and do not be afraid, you will definitely achieve the best. Work as much as possible and pay attention to details. It is impossible to learn everything in one day, so you must also be patient and remember that you will have an exciting journey that you will definitely like.

As an option, the Eight of Pentacles upright can mean that you are unhappy with your life and are actively thinking about details that can be changed. You are sure that change will lead to your satisfaction. The appearance of the card in your Tarot reading says that your attempts will be successful. However, you have to give a lot of your energy and work hard to achieve a positive result.


The reversed Eight of Pentacles means that you are:

  • thoroughly engaged in self-correction and becoming a better version of yourself;
  • strictly adhere to formed beliefs and rules;
  • sure that this is the right approach and it will affect your well-being and the quality of life in general;
  • focused and disciplined in repeating the set actions and rules again and again.

Another card value in a reversed position is your strong commitment to excellence. You pay too much attention to the details, and you lose the sense of the significance of the whole picture. You must always remember why you are doing your job and what your ultimate goal is. Another obstacle that hinders you in improving is your inability to adapt and change depending on the situation and environment. You want to do everything in one way, the best way, but fate blocks your plans, and you feel frustrated because you can’t get it done perfectly.

Perhaps your efforts to become the best version of yourself are difficult or even unsuccessful. You do not feel progress, and it upsets you. The best option is to understand yourself and your approach to business. You cannot be focused enough or pay not enough attention.

Eight of Pentacles for love and relationships


The Eight of Pentacles does not seem like an evil card in a love Tarot; although, it has a controversial meaning. As an option, it may assume that you invest a lot of yourself in the development of relationships, more than your partner do and exceeding the norm in general. Relax, and you will feel how relationships flow without your efforts. The appearance of the card says that you and your partner are united by a common goal. Action planning, education together and realization of the idea will unite you more and strengthen the relationship.

The negative side of the card can mean that your couple has financial problems. Both of you are forced to spend more time at work and develop your career to avoid it. Thus, the relationship and personal life fade into the background. The Eight of Pentacles recommends learning how to find a balance between work and family, home.

If you are single, the card symbolizes that you should take lessons from past relationships. Perhaps you have some sediment or shock caused by your former partner. Analyze this and your personal mistakes too in order not to repeat the same outcome in the future. If you are in love and are interested in whether it is mutual, soon you will know the answer to this question. The upright Eight of Pentacles does not mean a negative or positive response.


The Eight of Pentacles in this position means that you do not devote enough time to your partner and relationships in general. You are irresponsible and lazy in this area. The reason for your lack of investment may be that you are immersed in a job or career. You have a tendency to put work above personal life because relationships are boring for you. You need to learn how to spend more time on your partner and make him feel appreciated.

If you are together not so long, be careful if your partner wants to spend a lot of time with you, the appearance of the reversed Eight of Pentacles can be a disturbing sign that your loved one will soon turn into a controlling and manipulative tyrant. You may also feel that your relationship is developing too quickly in a negative sense. Wait a couple of weeks to understand your desires and perspectives of the couple.

If you are single for a long time, most likely the Eight of Pentacles means that you are shy and unsure of yourself with new people. It also says that you are not making an effort to create new acquaintances, because you are bored. Thus, the card is a warning that you spend a lot of time on work and not on personal life. Try to turn on your romantic part to attract a partner.

If you have your own business, you have a chance to get a bad reputation and lose partners and customers due to lack of quality work. If you are still studying, be focused on future tests or exams not to fail them. Alternatively, the Eight of Pentacles can mean your dedication to work and lack of attention to your personal life.
