Nine of Pentacles

Additional deck interpretation:

The Nine of Pentacles points you towards a path of enjoying your material gains in solitude as you continue your journey through the seventy-eight passageways of growth.

This is the level on your continuous cycle of change where you are feeling self-satisfied because you have gained wealth by doing things in your own way with persistence, dedication, and hard work. You totally believed in everything you could, and did, achieve.

The Nine of Pentacles indicates that success comes through the discipline, the self-control and the power to reach your highest potential. Slow and steady growth results in a bountiful harvest and material security.

You could be enjoying your wealth and health in solitude because you don't need another person in your life to feel complete. You could be alone because you lived in isolation to obtain your goals. You may live in isolation, behind gated walls or in a guarded area, to avoid being in the spotlight because of your fame.

Numerical Number 9: This number is associated with the time of completion and realizing your dreams, an important transition of change.

The Element of Earth: The Nine of Pentacles is associated with the elemental qualities of planet Saturn (structured and disciplined) and the zodiac sign of Virgo. The combination of Saturn in Virgo makes you need your space to feel at your best to achieve something important to you.

Probable Outcome: You are at a positive stage in your life - completion, excellent results, and the final outcome of success! All your hard work and sacrifices have resulted in a bountiful harvest.

Your harvest could be a new job or career, completion of a project, a raise or promotion, the end of financial problems (debts paid, an inheritance received), a higher social status, a happy relationship with yourself, spending time alone to control your destiny, good health and an overall feeling of security.

You could also have a career in real estate, remodeling homes, or decorating.

Possible Outcome: You are not ready to be disciplined and make sacrifices. Perhaps you have made a bad decision or your health has taken a turn for the worse.

Your harvest could be delayed related to a new job or career, an uncompleted project, lack of a raise or promotion, financial problems (unpaid debts), striving for a higher social status or a lack of feeling secure.

You could experience setbacks with real estate, remodeling homes, or decorating.

You may be spending money foolishly (gambling, buying what you want but don't need).

Your home may be too expensive for you to maintain.

You may be spending too much time at work to get more money that you don't need, thereby sacrificing your health and not being able to take care of your home.

You may not have saved enough money for retirement, or poor health prevents you from working.

Then again, you might not be able to channel the Nine of Pentacle's energies into your life. If this is the case, then you are not ready to walk alone and roll up your sleeves and get to work. You still want to spend time with others and want to live life to the fullest.

Timing: The Nine of Pentacles is related to a dedication to succeed that is turned into action. This event may occur in months or years to come.
