The suit of Pentacles represents earth and our physical being, most commonly associated with things that we need in our everyday lives and what we work for. The Eight of Pentacles represents that you may need to look into a new job or form of education. This card may indicate that a new job opportunity may be in your future. It may also indicate that you can use skills you already have in a new job or a job you are already in to ensure better results. Look into a new job you have always wanted to pursue because it may be more possible to attain than you had previously realized.
On all of the Pentacles a crown made of Barley is being depicted. Barley is represented in many religions and cultures in often the same form. In Greek mythology is is commonly associated with Demeter, the Goddess of the Earth and Agriculture. In the many other cultures Barley is seen as a major staple in the diet. It is grown in many civilizations and it a common cereal food around the world. As the crown is slowly built up through the Pentacle suit, as will the importance of material needs and our physical being, in regards to any money or property. Barley will continue to grow as the pursuit of your goals are under way.
