Your Chosen Card – Eight of Disks Reversed Thoth Deck

When reversed, the Eight of Pentacles suggests that you may not be putting in the needed time and effort to do a job well. Maybe you don’t care about producing a quality product, or maybe you are cutting corners just to get the job done. Remember that Rome wasn’t built in a day.

Book Details
Complete Book of Tarot: Each major arcana card is assigned to one of the four elements. These assignments can be found in the individual descriptions of the cards in chapter on the major arcana. To interpret tarot layouts, the Golden Dawn used a combination of card counting together with a method of assessing the interactions of the four elements to judge the dignity or relative importance of each card in the spread. Let’s begin by taking a look at card counting.

Creative Tarot: The man in the Eight of Coins is entirely absorbed in his work. The job here is to create excellence and consistency. His thoughts are not on the fame or money that will come; they are only on doing a very good job. The castle outside his window means he is isolated in his work; it is not the time to take the work to the market. This is a card of diligence and craft.

Complete Book of Tarot: This exquisite deck was owned by the Venier family of Venice. Most likely produced around 1491 by artist Nicola di Maestro Antonio, the Sola-Busca deck consists of seventy-eight cards and is unique in that each card is illustrated with characters based on figures of classical antiquity. Some authors believe that the symbolism of this deck derives from alchemical theories about transforming base metals into gold. The practice of illustrating each of the seventy-eight tarot cards with a unique scene or character would not be repeated until Pamela Colman Smith painted the now famous Rider-Waite-Smith deck in 1909.

Complete Book of Tarot: Finally, let’s consider an example from the annals of the Golden Dawn, which regarded the normally favorable Ten of Cups as having a negative influence when it appeared in this three-card sequence: 10 Wands—10 Cups—5 Swords. The cards surrounding the Ten of Cups in this case have the effect of converting the pleasure signified by this card into something not worth the pain and trouble it would take to attain. How did the Golden Dawn arrive at this conclusion?
