One aspect that’s present in the Eight of Pentacles (or here, Earth) that is often overlooked is apprenticeship. Maybe because it’s more rare today than it once was, I often just don’t think of it when dealing with this card. But whether the training is more formal or less, isn’t most education a form of apprenticeship?
Reversed, much like yesterday’s reversed Seven of Pentacles, it would seem there’s an impatience to complete the long-term commitment it takes to reach mastery.
Gah, I understand. Reading about a new technique or watching a video to learn a new skill is one thing. It’s exciting! Ongoing, dedicated and consistent practice is another thing entirely…
Um…I think I have some practice to do.
How about you?
