This week’s tarot card is the Nine of Pentacles from the Rider Waite deck. Pentacles are the element of earth and tangible resources like money, health, career, and our physical reality. The number Nine signifies both completion and reflection.
Here, we see an elegant woman in a lush garden surrounded by the pentacles of her achievements, abundance, and generosity. A hooded falcon rests on the woman’s arm, symbolic of her disciplined and independent nature. She knows her life is exactly what she has made of it, and she is flourishing.
This jubilant card validates your hard work in a career or relationship and calls you to enjoy a newfound sense of freedom and self-nurturing. Now is a time to reflect upon your accomplishments and to share your gifts going forward.
Another aspect of today’s reading reminds you to practice flexibility and gentleness with yourself and others. Though discipline and structure can support your goals, unrealistic expectations or perfectionism could potentially trip you up along the way.
The Nine of Pentacles reminds us all that true success is achieved when we balance sincere determination with spirited individuality.
