The appearance of this card in your tarot reading is almost always an awesome thing, since this card shows you the true extent of wealth: vast resources, grand estates, and a feeling of financial invincibility that just cannot be shaken. The man wears an elegant robe worthy of nobility with flowers emblazoned on it.
Not only that, the garden on the background is shown to glisten with the pentacles gently shining along with his clothing. He wears a yellow glove and holds a peculiar bird, which counts for both extravagance and utility.
Aside from this, he stands on flat lands, seemingly overcoming the chaos of the unknown within the background. With these in mind, take much heart.
You are most likely enjoying the time of your life right now, experiencing the full material potential of life. You’re succeeding romantically, you’re succeeding monetarily, and you’re thriving in your own business.
With the wealth you possess in nearly every area, you are ready to bring the good news unto others who might listen. The resources you possess thus impress the need for generosity in order to afford others the same opportunity that led you to the peak of your personality and career.
Having the Ninth in its upright position means exactly what it looks like: tranquility, confidence and riches. You carry within you great happiness which you can very easily access by just looking once more at all the possessions and people who surround you.
You are well-connected and well-to-do, with the only thing left being for you to enjoy the luxury of living a fulfilled, full existence. Of course, this means getting rid of the notion that you must necessarily earn more.
After all, it is not about earning more of one thing, but about earning the right thing.
Reaping life’s rewards is the main theme of the Nine of Pentacles, especially in its upright position. This makes it all the better when it comes to romantic matters since it means you not only have a partner that is charming, intelligent, and wise, you two constantly enjoy great accomplishments together.
For one, your partner may be on the verge of getting a raise or reaching an academic breakthrough, which both of you will be sure to enjoy. With both of you succeeding in your fields, your relationship will only continue to grow stronger.
Keep up the momentum! Your constant support for one another will be your bedrock. Yes, it can get difficult sometimes, but you are assured that your partner will always have your back no matter what.
They, too, will do the same out of their love and devotion for you. Both of you are set to grow and mature together for a very long time.
As such, the world is yours for the taking. With your combined brilliance, you will be able to build the life the two of you have always dreamed of- provided that you dedicate your relationship to the pursuit of achieving greatness together.
The fears and anxieties that you may have had before will have no place in your relationship. This is your moment, your time to shine together with the person whom you love the most.
Even better, the two of you will amplify each others’ brilliance, signifying your bright future together.
Wealth is a powerful communicator; having much of it means that you’re going to be a lot more confident in all the other areas. You have money to go to the gym so you can work out and develop your self-esteem, and you have books you can buy, which will increase your knowledge and understanding of the world.
Take this chance to expand your horizons beyond your career. You show great potential and the ability to become more than just an office worker.
All these seemingly insignificant activities have the potential to change your life, and it is up to you to make it happen. Needless to say, this card tells you that you will achieve all of this and then some more, ensuring that you will not only just earn money, but you’ll also be inspiring others as well.
Seize this opportunity and work! Remember that there is more to life than just doing a regular 9-5 job and making cash. Everything has the potential to make your life even better than before- if only you are willing enough to let them change you.
With that in mind, continuously pursue the things that will make you happier and closer to the person you’ve always wanted to become. Improving yourself is undoubtedly one of the most challenging yet fulfilling tasks that anyone has to do.
Through this, your fortunes will change, and you will be raking in more income than you’ve ever thought you are capable of making.
In its reverse, the Nine of Pentacles can represent profound greed and relentless ambition. You have within you a vast empire, but you’re forcing yourself to earn much more than what is appropriate for you.
This tendency to desire for so much more than what you could need or even want can lead you to stress out about the tiniest of details, such as how expensive your clothes are or making unnecessary quotas which leads to self-harm if they are not met. Hence, you need to go back to the drawing board and get to know yourself a little better.
Ask yourself how much you actually need or what you really want materially, and then overcome your greed.
In the reverse position, the Nine of Pentacles means that you or your partner may have been wronging each other for some time now and that you’re bound to pay the price. If you’ve been stabbing your partner in the back or even cheating on them with other people, then you will suffer great regret.
You have no one to blame but yourself as your relationship collapses. The choices you have made were ill-thought of and hurtful to the commitment that you and your partner made to each other.
Betrayal hurts, and it will mainly be torturous to your significant other once the truth behind your action is revealed. Relationships are hard to forge, but as life will soon tell you, breakups hit even harder.
You are presented with a choice: come clean and set yourself straight before it’s too late, or suffer the consequences of your actions. There is no assurance, though, that your relationship will go back to the way it was before the revelation of your mistakes.
Likely, things will never be the same because your partner might’ve lost their trust in you. Still, apologizing for your mistakes and making amends is worth a shot, especially if you genuinely love your partner.
Sure, mistakes happen in relationships, but what you did needs a whole lot more than just an apology- it demands that you change your ways. Otherwise, you will lose your partner for good, and you will regret why you even did those things in the first place.
This card suggests that you may be too caught up with your current successes to see the current dangers that loom ever closer. Soon, you may be put in a situation where you have to let go of material comfort.
It can be anything from getting kicked out of the house to being unable to pay an emergency hospital bill for yourself or your family. It is okay to seize the day and enjoy what you have, but always remember to prepare for eventualities.
Life is very inconsistent. One moment, you would feel like you’re on top of the world.
The next, everything that you worked hard for will be gone in an instant. Because of this, you always need to be prepared and stay vigilant, regardless of whatever comes next.
Things can always happen, especially when you least expect them, so taking good care is necessary. Set aside emergency funds that will help finance your basic needs.
You can also opt to get insurance to help buoy your expenses, especially if things go especially nasty. Investing in the stock market or on real estate can also be especially helpful during instances that demand huge sums.
Whatever it is that you choose to do, always prioritize your needs over your wants. Times are changing far too quickly, and you’ll never know when the next economic recession or family crisis will come.
While celebrating victories is a must, you must also ensure that you can still pay creditors off once the time comes.
