8 of Pentacles – Manifestation Magic

8 of Pentacles Wild Unknown

It is time to use our deepest creativity and inner magic to create the life that we desire.

Pentacles are the suit of earth, corresponding to vocation, money and manifesting concrete visions in the world. The eight invites us to look to our own inner resources to create the power to craft a meaningful life. The spider is a brilliant totem for the number 8 – with 8 legs, and also a body shape that resembles a number 8. In numerology, the eight represents time, infinity and cycles.

The 8 of pentacles reminds us of our desire to craft a life that is creative, authentically unique and able to support us materially. Is our web of our own weaving? If not, we may be caught in someone else’s web. Where are we sourcing our power?

The spider creates from within. Look at your inner resources. What are your innate qualities, abilities and skills that you would like to put to work in the world? What is your personal silk that you will use to weave the web of your life? What is it made of? Where does it spring from?

The spider has inherent abilities to create a useful and beautiful web with her silk. What kind of web do you wish to weave with your talents and gifts? The web is also about relationships. What kind of support will it take for your web to be strong and functional?

The spider brings in nourishment with her web. She is unapologetic about trapping, killing and eating her prey. She does not ask for permission or forgiveness. There is beauty and grace in her apparently savage behavior. What part of your own needs could be fulfilled by your web. What part of your own savage desires to sustain yourself have you been ignoring?

The spider does not “stress out” about building her web. It is her work, done in time, with attention to detail. Sometimes she experiences setbacks. The delicate nature of the web means that it will sometimes break or fall apart if there is a wind or an unexpected movement by any one of her anchors. She begins again. She begins again. She is unstoppable because she knows inherently that she is here to build her web. She must do so in order to survive.

It is equally important that we understand that we must stay with the process of the unfolding of our creative expression. The hardest part is starting. We must find secure anchors to structure our web. The web needs constant maintenance. If the web is truly made of the silk from within our natural processes, we do not need to over do our production. We do not need to focus on the final outcome. We can allow the process to be a natural outflow of our deepest desires. The spider teaches us dedication.

Once the web is complete, the spider waits for her prey. Her prey is what nourishes her and allows her to continue the constant process of creating her web.

“We are the flow, we are the ebb
We are the weavers, we are the web
We are the flow, we are the ebb
We are the witches, back from the dead”

I am loving exploring the mystical aspects of healing and growth - though archetypes, tarot, astrology and the mythopoetic universe! I want to see the magic and meaning in all things so I can live more fully on this beautiful earth.
