Nine of Pentacles Tarot Card Meanings
A woman stands alone, beautifully dressed in a bountiful garden that flourishes around her as she observes the falcon upon her arm. Falcons were something of a status symbol in medieval times, initially the preserve of nobility and a hobby of the wealthy in England and Europe. The lone woman suggests self-reliance.
As the card of plenty and abundance, the Nine of Pentacles brings financial comfort and the enjoyment of material pleasures, or at the very least an improvement in finances sufficient to allow a few creature comforts. This card suggests that life is good, financial goals have been accomplished through methodical and diligent efforts, bringing the just reward of prosperity to your affairs.
This card often turns up in readings for people who are financially independent, can stand on their own and pay their own way in life, so doesn’t necessarily represent being without relationships, although for some readers it is a sign of solitude.
If reversed, can represent a lack of principles and self-discipline, projects that come to nothing, excessive spending or self-indulgence.
