Number: Visually, 8 is the infinity symbol ∞ turned 90 degrees. Infinity is from the Latin infinitas = boundlessness.
Eights are all about the continuous cycle of doors closing and doors opening (see yesterday’s Post). The 8 of Wands suggest messages literally being “dropped out of the sky”. It’ll be your job to interpret them and listen to them, for they are bringing a great opportunity. You’re beginning to feel things happening very fast. Don’t be overwhelmed as the universe is moving things forward in a positive way. The 8 of Wands urges you to have patience. Go with the flow. There may be a breakthrough coming regarding a decision made by someone other than yourself. Don’t force the issue or try to make things happen. This is not about your agenda.
(The Lord of Swiftness is aligned with Mercury in Sagittarius. The 8 of Wands represents clear communication, overcoming misunderstandings, and sudden changes. Mercury rules intellect and logic and Sagittarius is the ultimate free-thinker. This pairing means that communication with others will be clear, honest, and direct – to the point.)
In addition to the regular methodology I use for drawing my Daily Tarot Card, I’m starting to draw a SECOND card from the top of the deck (curiosity mostly, but also to compare the two):
Knight of Pentacles – Earth
The Knight of Pentacles Reversed was drawn as my second card once before on 7.21.2017
