Ellen’s 8 of Pentacles stresses the integrity of work itself and not the glory that may come when the task is done. “This is a time for practical knowledge, determination and skill. …..Being focused, disciplined and diligent with your project, you will put all of your skills to good use.  By combining all of your gifts with hard work, there will be success. This is not a card of fame;  this is a card that reminds you of how effort, focus and creativity often bring growth, gain and a sense of accomplishment.”

Cassandra’s 8 of Pentacles speaks of adaptability.  “Whatever the challenge, your natural curiosity to find better and more fulfilling ways of organizing your world augur a busy but fruitful period…..It is time for doing, not dreaming, and you may surprise yourself at how adept you are at fixing everything. “
