The 9 Of Pentacles Tarot Card represents independence, confidence, assurance, and enjoying the fruits of your labor. We've seen the hard work and hours put toward achieving your goal in the 7 Of Pentacles, and the mastery of your work in the 8 of Pentacles. The 9 Of Pentacles depict enjoyment and appreciation of your effort. You can take a deep breath and relax while being in the abundant situation you find yourself in.

The Pentacles in tarot are one of 4 suits in the Minor Arcana. Typically the Pentacles, or “coins” suit deal with money, finances, hard work and material wealth. The Pentacles suit in tarot is associated with the suit of diamonds in traditional playing card decks. The similarity is obvious, with diamonds being a sign of affluence, status, wealth and success. Pentacles are also tied to the element earth of the 4 elements.

9 Of Pentacles Description

The 9 of Pentacles depict a beautiful woman adorned in a sophisticated and luxurious dress. She stands elegantly in a garden abundant with grapes and coins that weigh heavily on the vines. The woman rests one hand on a coin, with a large grapevine intertwined between her fingers. The grapes rising above her fingers look full and plentiful, indicating the size of her success. Hard work and dedication have served the woman well, and she looks at peace in her lush vineyard. The 9 Of Pentacles is a perfect example of a strong and independent woman!

Rider Waite Tarot Deck

In the background of the 9 Of Pentacles we see a large manor, further representing the woman's success and abundance. The robe she wears match the coins that surround her.....golden and beautiful. Her dress is adorned with flowers (roses?) which are red, and the inside of her cloak, hat, and falcon blind are red as well. This is another direct indication of her self-sufficiency and status. On the other hand (which is gloved) a falcon is resting, with a hood over it's eyes. The woman in the 9 Of Pentacles seems to be extremely in tune with nature and at peace in her surroundings.

The snail at the very bottom left of the 9 Of Pentacles sort of confuses me though... Slow and steady wins the race? Protecting what's important while slowly making progress forward? Slow and deliberate action, over time, will yield the results you ultimately seek? I would LOVE to hear YOUR opinion on what you think the snail means or represents! Tell me what pops in your mind or how you feel looking at it. There is no wrong answer, and I would really enjoy hearing yours. :)

9 Of Pentacles Upright

Morgan Greer Tarot Deck

The 9 Of Pentacles upright is a magnificent card to draw in a reading because of its heavily positive meaning. This card exudes success, prosperity, independence, and comfort. Receiving this card show that you've handled the hardships and trials you faced in the previous Pentacles, and it's all finally paid off. You've put in the long hours, you've learned from mistakes, you've exhibited discipline and self-control, and get to relax and enjoy it!

Beyoncé can describe the 9 Of Pentacles upright far better than I can....

I'm repping for the girls who taking over the world

Help me raise a glass for the college grads

41' Rollie to let you know what time it is, check

You can't hold me (you can't hold me)

I work my nine to five, better cut my check

This goes out to all the women getting it in, you on your grind

To all the men that respect what I do, please accept my shine

Boy, you know you love it

How we smart enough to make these millions

Strong enough to bear the children (children)

Then get back to business

-Run The World(Girls)

9 Of Pentacles Reversed

Herbal Tarot Deck

The 9 Of Pentacles reversed show insecurity, lack of confidence, and a selfish reliance on others. There's nothing wrong with reaching out and asking for help when you need it, but relying on someone or something to take care of you is a drain on everyone involved. You are more than capable of rolling up your sleeves and putting the effort in to get to where you want to go! The 9 Of Pentacles reversed suggest that you may be struggling with issues of self-worth and thinking negatively toward yourself. Ask yourself if you're just settling or if your value is higher than what you're currently getting. Don't let anyone else's opinion or attitude tear you down or make you feel "less than". You are worthy, unique, beautiful, limitless, and as Eleanor Roosevelt said: "No one can make you feel inferior without your consent".

Another interpretation for the 9 Of Pentacles is putting too much emphasis on material possessions. I love having nice things, but often I ask myself "Is this really necessary?" and the answer is usually no. Having a beautiful home, the car you want, and experiencing financial independence are all good things and are well deserved through the necessary work and effort. Don't get caught "keeping up with the Jones'" and develop a reputation for being superficial and gaudy. Our family, friends, loved ones, and life experiences are far more rewarding and priceless.

On the materialism note, the 9 Of Pentacles reversed can also suggest you're putting up a façade or giving a false impression of status and wealth when you're actually struggling. Buying the latest brands, and flaunting your 'wealth' just to keep up appearances can't last forever. When the bill finally comes due and the money's run dry you'll be forced to drop the charade.

9 Of Pentacles Love

Lovers Path Tarot Deck

The 9 Of Pentacles love meaning indicate more confidence, independence, and high self-worth. If you're in a relationship then the 9 Of Pentacles love card shows that you and your partner are in harmony and unity with each other. The trust level is high, and you both are leading your own independent lives, while supporting and cheering each other on at the same time. You both have shared goals and have successfully met the ones you've set together in the past. You can be your true self around your partner, and feel at ease and completely comfortable in their presence.

If you're single the 9 Of Pentacles love card shows that you're independent and single for one reason.....BECAUSE YOU WANT TO BE!!! You love yourself, and are well aware of your worth... you're kicking ass, why mess up a good thing? You don't feel like you NEED to be in a relationship, but if the right person comes along you aren't opposed to it either. Nothing wrong with knowing what you want, what you deserve, and not settling for anything less! If and when you desire a relationship, you'll find one.

9 Of Pentacles Money

Connolly Tarot Deck

The 9 Of Pentacles Money meaning is obvious from top to bottom. Affluence, wealth, comfort, and gratefulness for these riches are written all over this card. The discipline, attention to detail, and hard work you've put in have yielded the results you desire. You've earned the respect and admiration from others for doing what you set out to do and achieving your goal. Your 'status' has increased, and you can enjoy a comfortable lifestyle. Wise investments you made at the beginning are starting to pay off now, which provide even more stability and freedom. The 9 Of Pentacles money card can also indicate you're considering a home purchase, or even just a change of scenery to a higher-end apartment, or condo. This is represented by the castle and vineyard pictured in the background. You deserve every bit of your wealth, prosperity, and fortune....enjoy it.

Your position at work is safe and secure, and while you 'climb the corporate ladder' you receive recognition and promotion. The 9 Of Pentacles in a career reading show that you've set a clear goal, worked relentlessly to achieve it, and now get to enjoy the success and status as a result. Give yourself a pat on the back for not giving up, and not allowing anyone to place THEIR limits onto you. The only limits you have are the ones you set in your own mind! You're at a point where you can do your work on autopilot, and still produce at an elite level. Take a deep breath, look around, and revel in your success, you earned every bit of it.

What are your thoughts and feelings concerning the 9 Of Pentacles? Who are some strong and independent women you look up to? In my mind my mom is the epitome of a strong and independent woman, whom I respect and admire. What areas of your life are you experiencing prosperity or comfort? Are you placing enough value in yourself and your abilities, or just selling yourself short? Let's talk about it! :D
