How to Read the 8 of Diamonds:
Traditionally, the 8 of Diamonds denotes balance, or the struggle to find balance, in financial matters.
The 8 of Diamonds represents the ups and downs of money management. It may indicate extra money coming from an unexpected source. It can highlight a new source of income, or warn that over-spending is depleting current resources. It can denote “balancing the books,” budgeting finances, and saving for the future. Specifically the 8 of Diamonds represents anything having to do with the movement and cycling of money including financial planning, stock market activity, e-trading, investment portfolios, tax planning and estate planning.
My grandmother called the 8♦ “Money coming and going.” For her, the card indicated where money would be spent, and where additional money could be earned or acquired.
With a spade it could indicate money spent on bills or on other financial responsibilities- with a club it might indicate saving, gifting or investing money- with hearts the 8♦ indicates money spent on family and loved ones, and the good things in life that money can buy-with other diamonds it indicates winnings or earnings.
From an older symbolic meaning of “spectacles” the 8♦ can denote “being insightful” or “looking into the future.” In matters of health, this card can symbolize “the eyes.”
Two 8s: Pleasure, having a good time. Can indicate “music” from the symbolism of 88 keys on a piano.
Three 8s: Major change.
Four 8s: Weighing the pros and cons of a situation.
Suggested Card Combinations:
Face Card + 8♦ = someone involved with money or finances, banker, accountant, etc.
8♦ + 4♦ = balancing the budget, or balancing one’s checkbook.
8♦ + 3♠ = Money problems, not seeing things clearly.
