Eight of Disks Interpretations
Plant a seed, wait by its side tending its every need, let it grow nice and plump. When the times comes the crops can be sold at market for a respectable price. The process of waiting and patience, is very key here.
Counting your money as it grows, getting a significant amount of quantity or work that will pose profitable turnout. On the other side this card is also about hoarding and building up a stock of resources, finances, etc.
Above all else: Patience and persistence.
“Skill: prudence: cunning. Over-careful in small things at the expense of great: “Penny wise and pound foolish”: gain of ready money in small sums; mean; avaricious; industrious; cultivation of land; hoarding, lacking in enterprise.” 6

Axank’s Dream Recall
July 23-24, 2013
There was a dental office and a young boy was about to get dental work done. The boy was running around the office screaming and yelling and would be disobedient (he was excited, not upset). The family decided to drop the doctor and leave the office. After they had done this the boy said he was finally ready to have his dental work done and everyone was annoyed and exhausted.
I see this dream applicable in the idea that perseverance and sticking to things will pay off. If you give it time and wait through it, things will sort themselves out. You just have to be there, ready for that movement.
