Mr. 8 of Pentacles: The Hardworking Salaryman of Tokyo


The world is full of people who dream of quitting their day jobs to pursue their passions. Mr. 8 of Pentacles has no such dreams. He values hard work, discipline and dedication. He works with society’s structures and traditions – not against them. Risk adverse by nature, he sticks to tried-and-tested methods because he knows they work. His ascent to the top is slow. Steady. Like the tortoise who ultimately beats the rabbit. 

Mr. 8 of Pentacles enjoys his craft. Doing the same repetitive work day in day out gives him a sense of joy that the more fiery types will never understand. Mr. 8 of Pentacles is the humble apprentice who will one day be the master of his own workshop. It is impossible to truly create anything in this world without good old-fashioned hard work. Mr. 8 of Pentacles understands this fact very well. 

A Tale from our Modern World

Author: Grandtrines

Like so many people, I am a paradox. I am a politically conservative vegetarian. I am from a Christian background, and still tend to like those values, but am a metaphysical astrologer trained in science who has an interest in the magic of ancient Egypt and a weird belief that some piece of our essence can live on a server. I live in Texas, but like chatting with my international Wordpress pals the best. I learn by teaching. Technically, I am a "Leo," but I am very, very Aquarian with a dose of Scorpio. I bitterly complain about Algol (and Algol personaliites), yet it is the one star that defines me most (other than Regulus). (Which, oddly, makes me an Algol personality.) I am a reclusive lover of peace and quiet who has the Ascendant in the Via Combusta (the most conflict ridden part of the zodiac). I am an incredibly private person with a blog with over 800 followers and 50 to 150 regular daily visitors. I could go on, but I think you get the picture.
