II. Meaning of the Eight of Pentacles Witches Tarot
On the Eight of Pentacles Witches Tarot card, we can see a witch sitting behind a wooden desk in the alchemy room at dusk. She has a pensive expression on her face. Her dress is green with lace trim on the sleeves. She holds a large gold coin in her hand and is polishing it meticulously with a cloth. Her hair is curly and tangled as if she has been working hard for a long time. Her eyes are green and focused only on work.
On the table in front of her are pieces of deer antlers, handfuls of fresh herbs, and a skull. Her friendly crow perches on the top of the chair and seems to be observing the room for its master. Representing mysteries and Freemasons and magic, the crow is the Oracle’s traditional ally. Behind the witch, on the stone wall along with the large barred window, there are seven other coins hanging neatly. She is nearing completion and is polishing the eighth coin one last time. Her work will be done soon. She will add the last coin to the other seven that are carefully displayed on the wall. In this card, we can see the witch is more concerned with the completeness of the work rather than the glory when the work is completed.
