Learn the meaning of the Nine of Pentacles Tarot card
The Nine of Pentacles, also known as the Nine of Coins, depicts an androgynous figure standing in a beautiful garden. Around that person, we see Pentacles hanging on bushes, symbolizing the wealth that surrounds him/her. The person depicted on the card is standing in a golden robe adorned with red flowers, and on her/his hand she is holding a falcon symbolizing good luck and general prosperity. In the background of the garden, we see a building and mountains, and the whole card seems to be filled with peace and prosperity. And this is the meaning that should be attributed to the Nine of Pentacles because in its overall message it speaks of happiness, but also wealth, which can even lead to excess. The card indicates contentment with the situation you are in and also enjoying all the benefits of fate. The Nine of Pentacles also indicates self-confidence and high self-esteem, and a moment when you need nothing and no one else for happiness. When you draw the Nine of Pentacles it will be a particularly good sign in financial matters, because it indicates success in material matters and security.

The upright Nine of Pentacles is a very good sign if you are asking the Tarot about financial or material matters. It indicates a period of prosperity, when all your needs will be met. So you can count on e.g. successful shopping, but also further investments that will increase your already considerable wealth. The upright Nine of Pentacles indicates happiness and contentment in every field, although it doesn't indicate success in romantic matters. The person shown on this card is fully dignified with themselves and what they have, so they will not focus on new relationships. The upright Nine of Pentacles represents a sense of security, as well as the ability to set further goals that will allow you to pursue your own dreams. The card speaks of a time in your life where you are able to meet all your needs, and if you ask about another person they will be independent and not very interested in what is outside their garden. The card very much resembles the Nine of Cups in its meaning and just as that person is missing the tenth cup, here you still need to put in some more work to reach the fullness represented by the Ten of Pentacles.
The Nine of Pentacles in upright position depending on your question may have better or worse meaning in love matters. Most often it indicates that the other party is not very interested in emotional matters, and most of its attention is directed to material matters or its own needs. On the other hand, if the Nine of Pentacles in the upright position describes you, it will herald a very good luck with the opposite sex, which will raise your self-esteem even more and will make you feel good. The card is a harbinger of general contentment and fulfillment, so it does not indicate a need to be romantic or get involved in new relationships at the moment. Much more important to you right now are your individual needs and the freedom you want to savor in any way you can. For existing relationships, the Nine of Pentacles in an upright position indicates the independence of your other half, as well as the success they may be achieving in professional or social fields. The card may herald a period in the relationship where you both feel more freedom, but will still be ready to support each other in achieving your own and common goals. The upright Nine of Pentacles predicts a sense of security and successful joint financial investments.
The reversed Nine of Pentacles is a card that in its meaning very often indicates difficulties in defining priorities, but also mismanagement of money. The card, however, even though it is in the opposite position, will talk about the wealth and financial success available to you, which in this situation may be due to illicit interests. On the other hand, you may also have income that you simply do not deserve, or income that you will receive without much effort at work. The reversed Nine of Pentacles may indicate problems with self-esteem, as well as it may indicate a person who is able to go to great lengths to get money. For this reason, the reversed Nine of Pentacles is itself identified with harlotry and sex slaves. The card indicates a need for more discipline, as your sense of material security may be illusory at this time. In addition, the reversed Nine of Pentacles may indicate that your wealth is not making you happy, and that you need to give yourself more time for rest and recuperation, rather than focusing on accumulating money.
he reversed Nine of Pentacles in relation to love affairs, as well as Nine of Cups may indicate a sense of lack of emotional wholeness. So it may appear that neither money, nor health, nor the people closest to you are able to fill the emptiness in your heart resulting from the need to be loved and to give love to your other half. This can be due to many reasons, one of which may be the fear of sharing what you have with someone else or not being able to give up some of your freedom for the sake of a relationship. On the other hand, it may turn out that your search for love is motivated by financial reasons, or you may become the target of someone who only cares about your money. The reversed Nine of Pentacles indicates a relationship that is often described as a form of sponsoring. The card speaks of a person who is superficial and tacky in style and behavior. In extreme situations the reversed Nine of Pentacles may also speak of someone who has been the victim of sexual abuse. When it comes to relationships, the card indicates insecurity, and relationships that exist mainly for social reasons. The reversed Nine of Pentacles encourages you to open up about your feelings, and to reevaluate existing relationships.
