9 of Pentacles




Upright position:


Wealth, income, growth, self confidence, independence, control of the situation, material support, success, confidence, security


The 9 of Pentacles is one of the most uplifting and encouraging omens in the suit. This can mean that your financial worries are over for a while, and that things in general will be going better than you thought possible. Enjoy this good energy, and share your wealth and happiness with others.

General: The 9 of Pentacles points to happiness and success. This is on both the mundane and the inner realms. You will have a great deal to be proud of and hopeful about. Expect the best to happen. You'll be in the position to help those less fortunate than yourself. Pay attention not only to your material abundance but also to your spirituality.

Work: If you're looking for a position, the 9 of Pentacles could well point to a better job coming your way than you would have thought possible. Even if you're currently employed, expect a change for the better, both in terms of your circumstances and your pay. You'll have a lot to be grateful for.

The 9 of pentacles is an excellent omen with regard to love, also. If you're currently committed, you can expect the relationship to raise to new heights of intimacy and joy. If you're unattached and looking, this card tells you that someone new who has what it takes to be a new, meaningful, deep love, could be headed your way very soon. Smile. The world loves a lover.

Finances: When evaluating your finances, you must also look at your riches in other ways. Are you healthy, with a good family life? This too counts among the things that you must put in your books. On a more mundane level, your financial cycle is likely to improve, perhaps beyond your wildest dreams. Work hard. You will be rewarded. Share what you have. This too is key.

Health: The 9 of Pentacles is a very encouraging card with regard to health. You should be feeling full of vitality, and hopeful and optimistic about the future. If you're waiting on test results, they will likely come back in your favor. Think about your usual mode of thought; remember that thoughts are things, and will affect your health. Be as positive as you can.

Spirituality: When this card appears, you are likely to be feeling a great deal of spiritual peace and happiness. Your self-esteem is possibly higher than it has ever been, which is a very good thing. You are in the position now to mentor others and to share the spiritual insights that you have accumulated. Spread the word, share your happiness.




Reversed position:


Loss is possible, danger from thieves, caution, indiscreet, foolish action, suspicious transactions, betrayal, failure of the plan


The 9 of Pentacles reversed is generally a good omen, but it does warn that one must pay at least some attention to being disciplined and not give in too much to pleasure and relaxation. Yes, you have a lot of wonderful things in your life to enjoy, but there must be some effort made to keep things going. Don't rest on your laurels for too long.

General: Although you have a great deal to be proud of and hopeful about, action on your part is still needed. Be sure that you are very clear and specific about your goals and plans. Know what your part is in bringing them about. If you aren't sure what you need to do next, ask for advice from someone you trust. Think positvely.

Work: If you're looking for a position, the 9 of Pentacles reversed tells you that you must be methodical and disciplined (and also play those attributes up) in your job search. If you do so, a good/suitable job may well come your way. If you are currently employed, make sure that your employers are aware that you are keeping your nose to the grindstone. You cannot afford to slack off now.

Love: The reversed 9 says that if you are looking for love/want to be successful in your love relationships, that you can't expect this to "just happen." action and intention on your part is necessary. Be willing to talk, and really listen, to your beloved and/or to prospective partners. Remember love does not "complete you," your job is to complete yourself.

Finances: When the 9 of Pentacles reversed shows in a reading related to finances, you may be expecting rewards without doing "your part." Take the time and effort to understand exactly where you are financially, and take the steps to make plans and goals for where you want to be financially--and how you are going to get there. It won't just fall into your lap.

Health: reversed or upright, the 9 of Pentacles is a very encouraging card with regard to health. However, you will need to do your part, and make sure that you are controlling the aspects you can control, such as eating right, exercising, and so on. If your gut tells you that you need medical advice (or different medical advice,) trust yourself and follow through.

Spirituality: The 9 of Pentacles reversed shows that you have the capacity for a great deal of spiritual growth now, but you may not be feeling inspired to take advantage of the opportunity. Do what you can, even a little study and meditation can bring positive, important insights. It is more than worth the effort.
