Eight of Pentacles Tarot Reading

This week's tarot card with Penny Harrington is the 8 of Pentacles from the Rider Waite Deck.
Pentacles are about earthly resources such as money, health, career, etc.  Eights are about nearing completion of the suit. 
In this card, we see a young man sitting on a bench and chiseling pentacles.  You can see the town in the background on a beautiful day with a blue sky and a few wispy clouds.  The man is wearing a blue shirt covered by a purple work est.  He has red tights and brown shoes.  So far he has chiseled the pentacle symbol onto 7 discs and he is finishing the 8th.  So at first, it may appear that he is nearing completion of his work.  He is proud of his work because he has displayed most of the pentacles on the wall.  On the other hand, does he really need that many pentacles?  He has run out of room on the wall and is putting them on the ground.  Is this a kind of obsession?
With the appearance of this card, ask yourself if there is a place in your life where you may be overworking.  Are you obsessed with having more?  Are you so focused on your work that you are not taking time to enjoy the beauty of the day?  Or are you very satisfied with the wonderful work you have done and want others to see how good it is?
