Herbal Tarot - Eight of Pentacles - Ginger

You can see the minor arcane cards in Constellation 8.

Description: A man is crouched between two ginger plants in a field. He holds a hammer in one hand, and also supports eight discs with five-petaled flowers upon them. There are mountains in the distance.

Significant Details: The discs symbolize security and wealth. The ginger plants symbolize warming and healing. The hammer symbolizes hard work. The mountains are the gateways to the spirit realm.

Keywords: Education, Craftsmanship, Caring about your work, Self-Discipline

Medicinal Uses: The root has warming, aromatic properties. It is used for colds and flu. “It promotes a beneficial sweating that helps to eliminate toxins from the system…stimulates the circulation and is helpful for cold hands and feet. Ginger has a calming effect on the digestive system.” May be beneficial for travel sickness. American Nature Guides Herbs by Anna Kruger.

My Interpretation: This is a time of creativity and craftsmanship. Use your self-discipline to finish projects during this time. Take care in your projects. Things are balanced right now.

Number Significance: 8 – Movement, Change, Action or Inaction, Accomplishment. The 8 of Pentacles is ruled by the Sun in Virgo. The Eights are in Constellation 8 with VIII Strength and XVII Star. Self-Confidence. Fate. Perseverance. Power. Force. Kundalini Energy. Hope. Grace. Balance.

Thoughts/Points to Ponder: The man in this card looks as if he is thinking of what else he needs to do before leaving the field. He has the discs perfectly balanced.
