THE EIGHT OF DISKS/ THE EIGHT OF PENTACLES: The Spiral Tarot and Thoth Tarot Card Comparisons.

Eight of Disks-Prudence:
The  Thoth Eight of Disks represents talent, skill, craft, learning, and practical ideas being turned into a profitable profession.

The card itself symbolizes the harvest tree where hard work and skill have become fruitful and now you only need await the ripening of the harvest.

The Eight of Disks can be called the Masters card, as mastery of a skill is depicted here; Skillful manipulation of physical material with talented fingers along with prudent thoughts and the wisdom to coordinate both.

At the top of this colorful card is the Sun sign and at the bottom of the harvest tree is the astrological sign of Virgo. Virgo reminds us that by attending to details and utilizing our organizational skills, we shall repeat the just harvest.
Trust in your skills is the foundation of this harvest rather than the need for control; only a deep abiding trust in your skills will reap the just reward as harvest follows the ordered skill of the prudent mind. Prudence and wisdom are qualities of patient skill , not pushing to make things happen nor holding back or resisting. Therefore the coins have blossomed, the patient skill of wisdom and prudence has prevailed and the successful harvest is shown by the protective leaves that hold back chaos. There is no place for doubt for it is a manifested Trust of skill.

The Thoth Deck 8 of Disks is rightly subtitled PRUDENCE.  Disks are Pentacles or Coins, in other decks. But Disks is an appropriate symbol, something on  which Crowley and I both agree. Disks must be stabilized by a spinning motion, a circular rotational force, in order to hit their mark. Even the atoms of rocks are spinning in a centrifugal manner, so when representing the earthly powers, the spinning of the Disk, with its internal spin, best shows force and form as one presence in the crystalline light of physical matter.
The Eight of Disks-Prudence, is Hod in Assiah. the material World. As stated, the Sun is in Virgo and the angels of this Decan are; Akaiah and Kehethel. 
Virgo is noted to be a very practical sign which tends to cause over concern with small details.
Because this is an eight, any gain that prudence gives is soon dispersed making Prudence no great virtue.
The message in divination, is that of skill, prudence, and a tendency to be over-careful about small things, at the expense of the larger. 

This practice of skill, prudence and careful attention to detail, is illustrated in TheSpiral Tarot Eight of Pentacles. Depicted here, is a skilled Black Smith forging Pentacles. The image on the Spiral Tarot card also implies profitable times ahead. But because Hod is represented by Mercury and Mercury is exalted in Virgo, there is also predilection for intelligent loving involving material matters such as, agriculture, artistic craftsmanship, and engineering.  The Rulership of the Sun in Virgo suggests birth, as well, thus the disks are arranged in the Gemantic figure Populus, a great tree. These disks are then shown as flowers of a Great Tree, rooted solidly in fertile lands.
When the 8 of Disks is thrown during a reading, the querent:
  • Is in a moment of creative birth of 8 weeks or 8 months, requiring the practice of physical caution, carefulness, and prudence.  
  • Is reminded that all that you have learned or are learning will facilitate new growth in a skillful financial endeavor in the next 8 weeks or 8 months especially if you pay attention to details.
  • Is practicing a type of physical wisdom radiating from a inner place of balance and integration. Making sure that all the bases are covered; every "t" crossed and and every "i" dotted.
  • Is making intelligent choices so that the material world more closely conforms with one's needs. 
  • Is involved in the possibility of turning a talent or skill into a profession. Skill in work with energy and forms, such as fingers working on a manipulative substance.
  • Is in a financial endeavor that could involve Virgo people ( August 21 to September 21) or harvesting a fertile relationship with important Virgo people in your life.
  • Is in a wise state of mind that operates from a foundation of prudence, centered integration, and order rather than from chaos.
The negatives would be:
  • focusing too tightly on the small details and not seeing the big picture! In other words, "not seeing the forest through the trees".
