Eight Of Pentacles – Deviant Moon Tarot Deck
I. The Description of Eight of Pentacles Deviant Moon Tarot
Inside the factory, a worker struggles to create eight gold coins. Always careful with his own workmanship, this worker will not accept anything but perfection. Eight of Pentacles Deviant Moon Tarot reflects a time when you are focusing all your energy on something and making sure that everything is as perfect as possible.
This Deviant Moon Tarot card is sometimes referred to as the master of “Carefulness”, corresponding to the Sun in Virgo. It represents the development of skills and values, the maturity, the success that has come to fruition.
The Sun symbolizes one’s ego and core intentions and strength, while Virgo brings meticulousness and perfection. So that work is not only a matter of routine but also great joy inside. That possibility has fallen asleep from within, just waiting for someone to stir up, and now you just need to focus on bringing them into action. Because energy is built up and comes from within, it is not influenced by external forces. It is essential now to listen to your intuition, go where you feel guided, and feel it from your heart – let it happen naturally, your mind and heart will never point you in the wrong direction. It is like a second brain.
Therefore, wait until you discuss your plan with others, although the urge would be great. We have a delicate flower here in Eight of Pentacles Deviant Moon Tarot, one of the essentials is that the flower must be planted in the dark without being stepped on by external advice that seems to be considerate but turns out to be useless. We are not talking about perfection, essentially bringing your spirit and focus to your work, and then seeing everything by believing in yourself.
In the original sense, this is an apprentice’s card, who learns a new skill and works patiently towards mastering those skills. Research shows that it takes 10,000 hours to truly master the skills, and as a result, Eight of Pentacles Deviant Moon Tarot shows the beginnings of the mastery process. In addition, it has the ability to conduct a hobby, something close to love, a true passion, and out of that passion can bring a little financial benefit to you. This is where passion lurks in what you fancy. This means that you never work every day of your life, but in fact, ever since you are “engaged” to your passion, you never feel like you are working because it does not feel like fun. Find your passion and explore your talent, and follow it.
