Eight of Pentacles

Eight of Pentacles



The Eight of Pentacles is Hod in Assiah.  It is the power of Hod (Glory-Intellect) in the Active (Material) world. What a difference from the Seven of Pentacles! A lot of factors play into the happy combination of this card.

To begin with, Hod is the world of Mercury.  Mercury rules Virgo, which is a mutable sign, balancing the rigidity and stability of the element of Earth.  Earth, on the other hand is the realm of Assiah (and the suit of Pentacles). Finally, the cherry on top of the cake of this happy family is the Sun.  The Sun is a planet of self-realization and reason.  Grounded in Earth (the world of physical and material things), the Sun truly shines!

To make it clear, none of the prosperity of the Eight of Disks is forced upon you.  It is the success YOU bring onto yourself!


In this Eight of Pentacles we see a young Egyptian Scribe chiseling out his pentacles. He is in the green oasis, symbol of Taurus’ ruler, Venus.

In the background are two pyramids; each with four points.  Eight represents Hod (Glory, Intellect). 

The sun ruling the Eight of Pentacles presides largely over the scene.


  • Slow and steady progress
  • Prudence
  • Not seeing small details for the greater good
  • Practical success
