Monday Motivation: Eight of Pentacles

I just got back from a 12 day vacation, I went to Austria on a kind of family pilgrimage with my sister and my mother. Yesterday I was too jetlagged to be of use to anyone, so I surrendered to it. This morning, I woke up feeling human and ready to tackle the emails and inquiries that are waiting for me. I felt a little anxious, but told myself to just take it one thing at a time, to dive in and start chipping away at the mountain.

And the card of the day that I drew was the Eight of Pentacles.

Is it me, or are my Monday Motivation cards getting more and more literal each week? Thank you, universe, I appreciate the clarity!

This is me, getting back to work after my vacation. I see myself at my computer, head down, answering those emails one by one. Staying steady and grounded, tackling each item that needs my attention with focus and calm.

This is what I posted on Facebook today about the Eight of Pentacles:

Today’s Tarot Message: Eight of Pentacles
It may not be glamorous but this card brings tangible results. If you are working on a particular project or learning a new skill, it’s time to practice, to buckle down, to give it your all. You may get tired of the repetition sometimes, but its going to take you to where you want to be. If there is drama at the office, keep your head down, just do your work and get on with things. Old fashioned hard work can bring great satisfaction this week.

Being the suit of Pentacles, we are in the world of the tangible, the here and now, money, job, home, possessions, physical well-being, groundedness, things that make us feel safe and secure. Manifestation and things that want to grow at their own pace.

Being an Eight, we have movement, mastery, order, repetition, patterns, balance.

So what might the Eight of Pentacles represent in regards to a specific topic?

Eight of Pentacles in Love: So this relationship either IS work, or needs work. Are you willing to put aside romantic notions and buckle down and do the work? Take things one day at a time, don’t try to rush things to the next phase before you or your partner are ready, let your connection grow at the pace it needs. There is something solid here, and energy directed to building a strong foundation will not be wasted.

Eight of Pentaces in Career: Keep your head down, just do your job and do it well. Your work may feel repetitive and overly structured at this time, but know that with every completed task you are getting better and better at what you do, you are mastering your craft. A good time to stay out of office politics and to stay clear of gossip.

Eight of Pentacles in Well-being and personal growth: Find a practice that makes you feel grounded and focussed. Create a structure or routine for yourself as far as health, exercise, meditation, and stick to it. It may feel cumbersome at first but it will ultimately bring the results you desire. Don’t look for quick fixes or overnight miracles, do the work.
