Short meaning: You should learn and develop a new skill or ability which has taken your interest. This vocation or interest is worth pursuing; not only could it yield financial rewards you will actually enjoy and take pleasure in what you do.
In-depth meaning: When this card appears the Subject is working on something new, or a new element of something they have previously done. This will require learning and studying on their part. However, this is a positive card depicting a worthwhile endeavour that should lead to future gains and success.
This pursuit is important to the Subject and they have demonstrated commitment and dedication to it. It is giving them something constructive to focus on and generates excitement for the future. Starting something entirely new or branching off into something different can be daunting, especially if the Subject has come from a secure standing, but it can also revitalise and regenerate the Subject, challenging them to create something new and become more productive than they already are.
Notes on the image: The vine is thriving with eight Pentacles now on it. There are offshoot branches developing sideways which indicate a movement sideways into something new, but because it is an eight number card, the signs are very positive that, with some learning, this new pursuit is likely to be worthwhile.
