The Nine of Pentacles is a card of solitude and
Focus on this card when you want to enjoy your solitude,
or when you’d like to communicate with animals.
A female student stands in front of a stone wall,
inset with nine pentacles.
Walls symbolize protection from the outside world, and
the pentacles suggest a certain level of wealth and comfort.
While the young woman stands alone, she’s not lonely.
She enjoys her quiet time.
She also holds a trained falcon on her leather-gloved
hand. Even though the falcon is a bird of prey — as well as a hunting
weapon hat’s notoriously difficult to master — she handles the bird with
a natural grace and ease. He is her familiar.
The student is dressed in green, the elemental color
of earth. It indicates that she’s stable and grounded, and that she’s
practicing earth magic.
The card symbolizes prudence, assessment, and the
successful handling of a multi-faceted venture.
She’s pictured in a winter landscape, because the suit
of pentacles corresponds to the season of winter.
