We spend an extraordinary amount of effort spinning thoughts, plans and fantasies round and round in our minds. We do this in an effort to control the world around us; If we just plan enough, if we anticipate every possible outcome, we have a better chance of making the right decision.
The 9 of Pentacles represents that space in time after the decisions have been made. This is a Coins card and Coins always refes to earthly abundance. The colors are yellow in tone, warm and strong. This is a wealthy lady of leisure who walks in gardens laden with fruit, she is calm, she is collected and she is confident. She holds a falcon on her arm too, and this speaks to strength and skill.
If we happen to be the kind of people that ruminate, it’s safe to assume that we are also the kind of people that struggle with anxiety. Even if we know we've made the right decision, the perfect call, the best judgement, there's still a place in our mind that worries and obsesses, second guessing and doubting. This card reminds you that you don't have to do that. It guides you to sit in the stillness of your ruling, and enjoy the fruits of your efforts. You are skillful and qualified, you’ve efficiently handled the many birds of prey circling you in your life, and you've tamed them and trained them.
Can you think of a place, situation or relationship in which that you’ve recently stepped into power? Are you still fretting and worrying about the verdict? Are you doing this out of habit? Do you even realize you're doing it? This is your call to recognize it and allow the doubt to fly off and away from you. Settle yourself in the garden of your healthy decisions and let life continue to flow around you. True abundance is a relaxed mind. Cultivate that.
