Complete Book of Tarot: A case in point occurred in Burma in 1987 during the dictatorship of Ne Win, a superstitious leader who was overly dependent on the advice of numerologists. Ne Win was convinced that his lucky number was nine. As a result, on September 5 of that year, the Burmese government announced (without warning or compensation) that it was demonetizing the 25-, 35- and 75-kyat notes because these denominations were not divisible by nine and were thus unlucky. In addition, 45- and 90-kyat notes were introduced because they were divisible by nine. The effect of this sudden change in the currency was devastating. In the blink of an eye, 75 percent of the countrys currency became worthless, causing families to lose their life savings. Riots followed, and a military coup overthrew Ne Win in 1988. When all was said and done, nine did not turn out to be such a lucky number for the superstitious dictator!

Tarot for Beginners: The main meaning is first, followed by the ‘reversed’ meaning, which applies when the card appears upside down from the querents perspective. Reversed meanings are quite often the opposite of the upright meaning, although this isnt always the casesometimes, particularly with cards that have a negative indication when theyre upright, the reversed meaning is simply a more intense version.

Reversed Cards: The Eight of Pentacles is ruled by the sun. As we know, the sun doesnt have a retrograde cycle, nor does it go backward in any way, shape, or form. It does, however, eclipse, flare up, and change its intensity with the seasons. It also disappears at night, meaning it allows for rest. If you have received the Eight of Pentacles in the retrograde aspect, it may be time to take a break. Stop burning and blazing for a moment and rest. Turn out the lights and let the darkness embrace you as you allow your body to regenerate before the sun comes up once again.
