Eight of Disks
After working so hard to fine-tune your skills, now is the time to start thinking about showing the rest of the world what you’re made of.
You may be putting the finishing touches on a project or getting ready to dust off your degree. Or you may have discovered a new passion that has you prepared to invest your time and energy into.
The Eight of Disks has been called the “apprenticeship card.” It refers to finding your personal labor of love and devoting yourself fully to it. It’s the precarious balance between passion and discipline, as you hone your craft to perfection.
You may be making a pivotal move toward achieving what it is you really want to achieve.
Look at the imagery in this card. There are a set of lions — one red and one gold — framing a delicate lamb. They rise up on either side like pillars of strength and virtue, leave little room for error.
It takes focus, determination and preservation (notice the lamb so peacefully situated between the two pillars) to achieve this level of mastery.
Ask yourself; are you protecting the lamb or are you preparing to devour it? The desire to hold on to your work may be just as compelling as the need to set it free.
