Tarot cards came long after the playing cards deck, in 15th century. While playing cards were used in games, Tarot were designed for Psychic readings only. Each Tarot card tells a story about you and your future and past. When you are reading tarot cards, you are connecting with universe on a deep, psychic level, where shadows fall in the dark.
Eight Of Pentacles
A workman dressed in plain garments, covered with a leather apron, is diligently carving a golden pentacle, symbol of money. The large stack of work piled high shows that he had kept at the job faithfully. His back is turned to everything else in the world; his attention is on his work alone. This picture shows honesty, attention to fine details and expert skills. It may also suggest that all work and no play makes a dull life. Although pleasure and satisfaction may come from the acquisition of wealth.
