For the Eight of Disks, the entering of Hod means a new beginning. The Disks have
learned the lesson that Saturn has teached in the desastrous Seven, that everything
needs time and consideration. Now here within Hod, the area of logic, the Eight of
Disks develop prudence and patience.
So the Eight of Disks have learned to be careful, take their time to overthink their steps, considerate all facts and patiently wait for their chances. They absolve an apprenticeship in their own field, trying to do it better and avoid the mistakes from ealier stages.
On the dark side, the Eight of Disks can be over-careful, or careful just in small things while foolish in the big, over-anxious in front of risks, unable to come to any conclusion or decision, considerating with no end but finally doing nothing.
Drive: Consideration, prudence
Light: Realisation of coherences, ability to wait for the right moment
