Eight of Pentacles from the Sun and Moon Tarot. Learning and perfecting new skills, being diligent and working hard towards a goal. Cultivating what’s been planted, waiting for it to ripen and mature (in a metaphorical sense, if not literal).
Sometimes we need to temper our impatience for what we want to accomplish, give ourselves time to really understand a situation before we take hasty action. Perhaps we don’t have all the facts, or the necessary skills. This is time to hunker down, and put some effort into learning the process.
It’s back-to-school time for many just now. Time to open the books and get back to studying. If you’ve been feeling like you need something new to work on this could be a good time to start. Don’t try to take shortcuts. Put in the time and your efforts will be rewarded.
For me, I need to get back to writing on a more regular basis. Maybe some new books on the craft of writing are in order.
