Eight of Pentacles Overview

The Eight of Pentacles is about learning a trade. Perhaps as an apprentice or even an intern of some sort. Starting at the bottom and working your way up. In this card a young man patiently and diligently crafts designs on the pentacles, gaining experience and skill as he plods along. If the Eight of Pentacles appears in a reading reversed, something is not on the up and up. Business practices could be pushing the boundaries of ethics. Things going on in the dark or under the table.
