Scholar of Tentacles

In a reading, the Scholar of Tentacles may signal the need to be consciencious and precise about the things occurring in our lives, especially in the physical, tangible, material sphere. The smallest details may turn out to be important, even if we don't recognize their significance at first. The bigger picture can wait until later; now is the time for paying attention to the details.
