Nine of Pentacles (Upright)
A Garden Witch stands smiling and alone in a lush garden under an arbor. She is surrounded by verdant foliage and flowers, and she almost seems to be dancing. Clearly she is happy, confident, and self-sufficient. The woman has brown hair and green eyes, while her velvet dress is a deep earthy brown with forest-green trim. Her powers are enhanced by being out in the garden and encircled by nature. The golden earrings she wears are a quiet nod to her success and prosperity. Around her neck is a necklace of nine green tourmaline stones. Those nine jewels are a link to the number of her card, while green tourmaline is the complementary stone of the herbalist and the magickal gardener.
Growing upon and twined within the arbor are nine large, magickal, five-petaled yellow flowers. In the center of each of these nine star-shaped flowers is a metallic golden pentacle center. A handsome falcon perches on the arbor just above the woman as if to keep her company. The falcon is her animal ally. The falcon in this card represents focus, intuition, inspiration, and confidence. In this card we learn one of the mysteries of the Craft: that interacting with nature and tending to the earth does enhance your spirituality.
When the Nine of Pentacles blooms in your reading, it tells of a time of joy and abundance. This tarot card classically represents a person who is elegant, successful, and happiest when surrounded by beautiful things in nature. It symbolizes a Witch who taps into the element of earth to receive their powers. No matter what their title may be—Garden Witch, Green Witch, or magickal herbalist—this is an earthy, practical person who enjoys nature, makes and keeps a beautiful home, and grows a magickal garden. In addition, this card represents sharing the magick and the secrets of the garden with others. You are being called upon to connect to the earth and to study its mysteries. Finally, the Nine of Pentacles can represent that financial worries are over. It heralds a time of creative focus, confidence, and personal growth.
