The Thoth-EIGHT OF DISKS: PRUDENCE
Astrologically this card is Sun in Virgo, the planetary aspect here is a very practice one that tends to cause concern with small details.
Qabalistically, 8 of Disks (8 of Pentacles in other decks) is Hod (splendor) in Assiah (the material world). Prudence in the Material world is no great virtue, for this is the tendency to focus only on the small details while ignoring the bigger picture.
The Divinity meaning of this card is, skill, prudence, and over carefulness about small things, at the expense of the great.
However on the positive note, the 8 of Disks also shows the abilities to work steadfastly on new projects, and proceeding to others later on. Often this is called the Master's Craft card, since it is about focused will, skill with energy and material matters and is the kind of focused state needed for meditations. It is about craftsmanship that thinks of the work itself rather than the goal of reward.
When thrown this card informs the querent:
- That Prudence is a short term focus on the small details, baby steps rather than a long term goal.
- After about 8 wks or 8 months, there will be good influences to start a utilizing your learning as a skill in business or career.
- This is a card of "talent" (which means hard work on the details) and shows the possibility of turning a skill or talent into a profession, or money earned.
- The 8 of Disks card is about turning all that learning the details, into beginning a profession; from student to beginning Master Craftsmanship.
- 8 of Disks also calls for caution, for Prudence overdone, resists change and the ability to move with the changes, is success but to resist change can only bring failure.
- The important message here is to at first pay attention to the details and then focus on the big picture to insure success.
