There he sits, the King of Pentacles, on his throne adorned with carved bulls (he most definitely is a Taurus) and surrounded by the vines of his vineyard, the grapes of which are displayed so magnificently in his luxurious robe. This king is all about material success resulting from a disciplined approach of tried and true stratagems for building and maintaining wealth. He is smart and generous and will share his wealth and advice with those who ask. Are you a business owner? Do you know how to attract wealth and enjoy material success? If so then share it with others. There’s nothing wrong in enjoying the good life, especially if you have the gift of making things grow.
One of the most wished for cards in the deck, the Nine of Cups signifies good fortune, abundance, culminations. The fellow looks rather smug sitting on his stool with his arms crossed, wearing a fancy red hat in front of the podium stacked with nine beautiful gleaming golden cups. We feel he has a worker quality about him and the red plumed hat is a new acquisition to his wardrobe. He has worked hard for the success he has attained and he does not forget where he came from.
Perhaps you are enjoying the fulfillment of some dreams that have manifested into reality. Success is in the air and you deserve to pat yourself on the back. You worked hard, believed anything was possible, and now you have proof of a benevolent universe. Stay grounded and love every minute as the cycle sets to start again.
The fellow in the picture stands on top of a hill straddled over a stream of water with a wand in his hands. He is fending off six wands whose owners (we do not see) as if in battle. The message is all about him and his action of protecting his turf. When you’re on top of the hill there will be those coming after you. Expect the competition and be prepared to do what is necessary to hold your ground. It’s part of success and achievement because human nature is so linked to the reptilian urge for survival. This week expect some political fracas in the structures of your life–at home, the office, school. A bit of healthy competition can provide energy and impetus for forward movement. Don’t be a victim. Rise to the challenge.
