The Eight of Pentacles, Minor Arcana, indicates the advancement of skills. New skills and career opportunities are indicated. Build upon skills you already possess or possibly start something completely new. Perhaps if you are creative and artistic, you will develop those talents and generate income. What once was a hobby, might become a career. You might learn from the ground up by taking an entry level position or apprenticeship, but your talents will be noticed in time and you will reap the benefits. However, as always, patience is a virtue. Be sure you apply hard work, perseverance and attention to detail to all new projects. All this hard work will create positive changes in your life.
You believe there is nothing new to learn in your job — you are stuck and bored. You have outgrown it or feel held back, due to your lack of patience. This may be causing you anxiety because you are too focused on the financial rewards rather than learning. You may be rushing things and therefore missing important details necessary to perform your job. You have put your goals ahead of your friendships. Your arrogance may be getting in the way of asking for advice. Don’t be so concerned about how others perceive you. It also might be that you are not living up to your true potential. You will need to prove yourself and take responsibility for your own growth. Consider looking into what really makes you happy in your work. A new direction might be necessary or you might want to start a new venture. This might be a time to take some courses to improve yourself. It is also not a time to give up. Do not let laziness stand in your way.
