Whether you are willing to work hard all day long or not, the reversed Eight of Pentacles tells you that in order to be successful and happy in the future, you will have to do your part.

In terms of work, if you have drawn the Eight of Pentacles Gilded Tarot in reverse and are in the job search stage, be ready to do anything to impress your employers, convincing them that you will be a hard-working and diligent employee, and be prepared for what you need to convey. If you already have a job, you will likely be asked to work more in the future. Do your best, and try a little harder. You must be able to show that you are making the most of your capacity, no matter what the results are. However, deliberately avoiding your duties could get you fired.
In terms of love, the reversed Eight of Pentacles Gilded Tarot can show that in a current relationship, one or both of you may still be unprepared to do what it takes to maintain a happy and content relationship. Think again about this. Do what you need to do to make this relationship work. If you are looking for love, you will have to work harder to find it.

Nearly every incredible success is, in fact, the fruit of your effort over the many years before it.
In terms of health, the Eight of Pentacles Gilded Tarot in reverse is a call to urge you to do or take some action to improve your physical condition. There is always at least one thing you can do. If you don’t know what to do to improve your overall health or if you are worried about your symptoms and don’t know how to treat them, don’t hesitate to seek help from a medical professional. Ignoring things will not automatically lead to healing.
In terms of spirituality, the reversed Eight of Pentacles Gilded Tarot is also a signal to take action when it comes to spiritual development.

If you are looking for spiritual growth, this is the time to step up, go out, meet new people, try new spiritual practices, find new places, and open up to yourself more. You can do all these things, and then great benefits will come to you.
