The card drawn for this week is Reversed Eight of Pentacles
With the reversed Eight of Pentacles appearing this week, your focus is on self-improvement and personal development. You are highly disciplined and dedicated to becoming the best version of yourself. You may even choose specific practices, like a daily gratitude ritual, and perform these routines over and over until you see results.
Keep yourself from focusing so much on trying to perfect things that it turns to your detriment. When you focus on every tiny detail, you can lose sight of the bigger picture and why you’re doing the task in the first place. If your need for perfection gets in the way of your ability to adapt and change, then you may find that you become stagnant.
Take a step back and assess whether you are indeed focused on the right things.

Eight of Pentacles Description
The Eight of Pentacles shows a young man laboring over eight coins, carefully etching out a pentacle shape into each coin. In the background, there is a small town, however he has separated himself from the distractions of home life so that he can fully dedicate himself to the task at hand. He is concentrating very hard, eager to do a good job and avoid any mistakes. As he creates each coin, his skills improve and he becomes a master at his craft.
