Feeling into the Energy of the 9 of Pentacles
Poverty programming teaches us that money is evil. It is not; it is neutral. Nobody who is successful sees money as evil. However, the elites who wish to establish a majority slave class are quite happy to keep enforcing poverty consciousness. The antidote to poverty consciousness is found in the 9 of Pentacles.
This card, the 9 of Pentacles (Venus in Virgo), relates to the Sephira Yesod on the Kabbalistic Tree of Life. Yesod is ruled by Archangel Gabriel who also rules the Moon. This womb of creation is where the magic of manifesting takes place. Each of us spends nine months in the womb of our mother. Odin hung 9 days and nights on Yggdrasil to retrieve the runes. The number nine is the ultimate symbol of a process of creation reaching culmination.
“Some people think luxury is the opposite of poverty. It is not. It is the opposite of vulgarity.”
~ Coco Chanel
Give What You Have
Allowing yourself to feel truly abundant, blessed and prosperous generates more of the same. Share your good fortune with others. Generosity also generates more abundance for everyone.
You don’t have to be rich to start giving, you simply need to be able to behold the world with eyes of love, empathy and gratitude. True abundance is about choosing quality over quantity and realising that a gift of one’s time can be more valuable than a bunch of… well, stuff.
Time for a Makeover?
The 9 of Pentacles indicates that it could be time for you to consider a style makeover. Thinking about the impression you make by the way you dress and carry yourself in the world is not always shallow. It is not about aligning yourself with the current fashion trends but rather refining the expression of your unique personality through style choices.
Affirmation: “I am grateful for my ability to bring more beauty and quality into the world.”

9 of Pentacles in Love and Relationships
Because this is a card of success and achievement in the material realm, it may indicate that you are quite happy in your own skin and actually better off on your own than paired up. It can indicate that the Seeker is very clear about their core values as a single person but has a hard time imagining what they look like in a coupled scenario.
I have seen this card appear in a love reading as indicating that the object of desire (typically a woman) feels out of reach to the Seeker or that the Seeker is an object out of reach to an admirer. This can be a bit of a red flag. Sometimes, the one doing the admiring tries to pull the other person down rather than build himself up to a level of feeling worthy of the attention of his love interest.
When this card shows up in a reading for a couple, it usually indicates that one or both of you need more space and the focus may be more on work or bringing projects to completion than on the relationship. This is not a problem if you already have a firm foundation for the relationship. It could also indicate a financially stable, older couple where enjoying the finer things in life has become more important than being physically intimate.
If reversed or ill-dignified, unmet physical needs could be indicated.
