Celtic Dragon - Eight of Pentacles

Soaring Eagle

Description: Two children sit listening to a large earth dragon reading a book. There are eight small earth dragons on and around the children. In the background there is a fountain in the shape of a dragon spewing water.

Significant Details: The large earth dragon is the “main” astral guide and teacher. The fountain and the garden symbolize the orderly conscious mind. The water represents emotions and the subconscious mind. The circular wall around the fountain symbolizes birth. The small dragons are spiritual guides and teachers.

My Interpretation: This is a time of new opportunities, of taking time to learn new skills and using your creative knowledge. You may be rewarded for your past efforts.

Thoughts/Points to Ponder: After reaching a point of Stopped Progress(7) you will find New Opportunities(8) available to you and you can reach a Comfortable Aloneness(9).


The dragons and children are learning. It's not formal teaching in a class. It feel more flexibility in the learning. Even if the knowledge is in a book. The children and dragons look to be there on their own will.

I like how you see this card, as a time of teaching, learning new things.
