The figure of a woman stands in a secluded tree-lined lane, surrounded by roses and gold coins. She holds an eagle in her upraised hand.
The Nine of Coins represents a person who has achieved much for herself
through hard work and discipline the same discipline that allows her
to control the wild eagle. She enjoys surrounding herself with the finer
things in life, and enjoying them in peace and quiet. This is a solitary
card; the woman is master of her own world and means to live there in
This is a card representing self-sufficiency and personal satisfaction.
Hard work and self-control have brought the Querent to their present
position, and now is the time to enjoy the comfort and luxury and all
that it has to offer.
An independent man or woman of means. Solitary enjoyment of the physical and tangible, without selfishness. A hard-earned reward. The culmination of hard work and discipline.

QueenofPentacles has been studying and collecting the Tarot for about four years. She likes coffee, solitude, fog and the smell of the ocean. She dislikes her job, cell phones, rude people and the post office.
She lives in eastern Canada in an old farmhouse with almost 150 Tarot decks and her very patient husband. She is currently trying to create a collage Tarot deck for personal use and fighting a losing battle with Photoshop in the process.
