Nine of Pentacles
This tarot card is the embodiment of brilliance. We are advised to tune in to our inner wisdom, and promised that if we allow it to guide our actions, we will be presented with a style that is unprecedented. Once we let go of any doubts over our ability and intellect, we are magnetically attracted towards our highest potential. As long as our focus doesn’t waver, we can internalize all obstacles, and make a steady progress, all the while radiating a confidence and positivity.
The biggest chunk of the Tarot deck, 56 of the 78 cards, comprise the Minor Arcana. 40 cards out of these fall exclusively under the Minor Arcana, while the other 16 also form a part of the Royal Arcana or Court Cards. If the Major Arcana can be said to convey the big picture, the Minor Arcana signifies the specifics in the life of a person. It is divided into four parts: The Suit of Swords signifies the realm of the mind and intellect, our decisions and insights. The Suit of Cups has to do with the things of the heart, things we love and care about. The Suit of Wands represents our power and life energy as applied to the situations and events we face in life. And lastly, the Suit of Pentacles represent our labours and the rewards we gain from them.
