Understanding the Eight of Pentacles in a Love Tarot Reading
Traditionally, the tarot card meanings of the Eight of Pentacles can often refer to new opportunities that will require a period of learning. The Eight of Pentacles tarot card is considered to be the “apprentice” card, meaning that there is a great opportunity to further develop a particular skill or particular talent. It can also refer to going back to school or enriching one’s educational. When this card appears in a Tarot spread, it can signify important learning opportunities such as going back to school, starting a new job or getting a promotion that can be both challenging and rewarding.
In a love tarot reading, however, the Eight of Pentacles can take on a slightly different meaning. The important thing to remember when it comes to love relationships is that there is always something to learn. Not only are we learning more about those we love, but we continue to learn more about ourselves whenever we participate in intimate relationships. The Eight of Pentacles can serve as a reminder that you have not yet reached the pinnacle of all knowing. In other words, the relationship you are in has something to teach you. The best approach is to remain teachable and allow your relationship to reveal to you who you are, what you need, and how your expectations could be affecting your significant other.
If you are single, there is a good chance that you just may meet a new love interest in the near future. For those of you beginning a new relationship, the future is full of possibility. This relationship has the potential to create a deep connection and attachment. In a love tarot reading, the Eight of Pentacles can indicate new passages such as an engagement, marriage proposal and even news of a pregnancy.
Finally, the Eight of Pentacles can refer to couples who will also experience a new phase in their relationship such as one partner going back to school or taking a new job. When this is the case, it’s important to be diligent in your efforts to remain supportive. New responsibilities can put added strain on a relationship. However, because the eight of Pentacles refers to learning, this is exactly what will happen. Over time the added responsibilities won’t be as challenging
