I've noticed this one shows up when I am getting impatient with something I am working on. In the immortal words of Inigo Montoya, "I hate wait." ;)
Eight of Disks
While low on the Tree of Life, (this card sits in Hod) it is still a much better card than the seven! Hod is in Mercury and Mercury sits exalted in Virgo - mutable Earth sign, therefore it stabilizes us. Earth is the element of Assiah, which is home to the suit of Disks - we are all happy here!
Crowley says, "this card signifies intelligence lovingly applied to material matters, especially those of the agriculturist, arificer and engineer."
This card, Prudence, is about waiting and having patience. We plant and wait. Wait and see what comes of the work we have done. Time and consideration is good here. We have learned not to rush headfirst into something now. Like an apprentice trying to learn his craft, we take things slowly and one step at a time.
