The 8 of Skulls (Pentacles) is called the Lord of Prudence and represents patience, development of skills, and apprenticeship. It’s message is that no matter what you want to accomplish, you’ve got to put in the work to see results. (Just look at the intense concentration on the face of the Necromancer.) But it’s not about the end result here that matters as much as it’s the journey you take getting there. Get lost in your work. Make sure your efforts are put toward something that you’re passionate about.
If someone is looking for a trashcan, don’t let it be your mind.
– Dalai Lama
