The insight to your question about your past, present and future situation lies below. First, observe the symbols and images in your tarot cards, then slowly take in the wisdom in your reading.
Because the Eight of Coins, is ruled by Virgo, it seemed natural that it should correspond to the lunar gardener's Moon in Virgo. Virgo is a dry, barren, earthy feminine sign. This is the only feminine sign not used for planting. This is a good time to do yardwork and maintenance. Weeds are less likely to grow, so pull weeds and turn the sod, especially when the moon is in its fourth quarter. More broadly, this card is about working and reaping the rewards of your labour. Sometimes these rewards are easy to lose sight of. Just as it can take many seasons before a tree bears fruit, so your projects may take time to come to fruition. Don't look for the shortcut that may leave your metaphorical trees vulnerable to drought. Deep roots take time to develop.
The nurturing powerful mother; receptive, loving, intuitive, sensitive, compassionate, empathy, pregnancy.
The suit of Coins is of earthly matters: money, possessions, comfort. The Page of Coins, which is the first card of the Court Cards, is the youngest of the four. He tells of the excitement of youth at new beginnings. He shows the seriousness of the drive towards success, without losing the dreams of tomorrow. This is good card to see when doing a reading about new endeavors.
