What does the eight of pentacles tarot card mean?

Main image for Eight of Pentacles

The eight of pentacles is part of the Minor Arcana deck of tarot cards and is part of the Pentacles suit.

Keywords: Skills, training, learning, apprenticeship


The Eight of Pentacles is a card of learning and apprenticeship. If you draw this card, you may be embarking on a period of education; you could be going back to school, or training for a new position at work. You are diligent and determined to work hard to learn new skills and arm yourself with the required knowledge to take the next step in your school or work life. If not taking an official class, you may be simply interested in learning something new just for fun. This card usually appears when you’re feeling slightly bored or unhappy in life, and are looking to better your situation. If you’ve been looking for a sign, this is it. Take the chance.

Reverse Keywords: No ambition, laziness, lacking direction

Reverse Meaning

The Eight of Pentacles is a card of hard work and enterprise, and so naturally the reverse is a sign of laziness and lack of ambition. You may know what you want to learn or achieve, but just don’t have the drive or the motivation to actually do the work. Or, you may be focusing on the wrong things and not moving as fast as you’d like to. You’re pursuing short-term, quick wins instead of investing more time and energy into things that really matter and will provide long-term rewards. It’s time to refocus and decide what it is you want, and go after it.
