When reading the 8 of Pentacles comes up as someones feelings toward another what does it mean?I know the 8 of pentacles is the worker/apprenticeship card so does that mean that they have to work out the feelings towards the other, or more along the lines they feel that the other person requires a lot of work?

I think it could mean growing feelings, that is how i would read it personally.

Could mean that their feelings are such, that they are "dedicated" to the relationship.

It could mean they're willing to put in the work that all relationships require if they're going to last and be successful. No relationship is without its share of work.

Hi, I am not sure if this rings a bell with you, but I get the feeling that the 8 of pentacles has to do with "working out the feelings" you have for someone in secret, or keeping them hidden from that other person. I get this notion when I look at the RWS deck and see a man far away from the population and by his tree, all on his lonesome chipping away at the pentacle on his workbench.

I've always interpreted this as saying that he/she feels like they want to learn more about the person. A slow, steady, methodical, serious approach. I'd see it as a good card, maybe not super romantic, but speaking highly to the amount of attention and responsibility a person feels for another.

I'm going to play devil's advocate here. Do the two people work together? If could be the other person sees the relationship simply as that of colleagues, workmates.

We went to school together about 7 years ago.

I read somewhere on this site where someone attributed the qualities of "unfinished" and "a lot of work" to this card. This worked for me, so I kept it :)

Therefore, as feelings, a person feels that things were left unfinished or unresolved, and may feel that they invested alot of effort in the other for no definitive end.

I just always saw it as determined. In whatever the relationship may mean to the person.

I know this Thanks comes late. I'm a bit of a newbie in light of all of the tarot maestros and maestras here. I'm glad if it helped you in any way.

i would prefer sticking to the basic interpretation and say ......The querent feels that "lover" is preoccupied with some task(career or other) and never gives attention to him/her.something like living with a workoholic .....someone who thinks the relationship is secondary to the task at hand...
