The woman on the Nine of Pentacles card is strolling leisurely around her garden. She definitely is an elegant and polite lady, so the fact that there is a trained bird of prey on her left-hand is an inappropriate detail. Falconry is not a normal hobby for a noble lady, but this is the key to describe the special nature of this card.

On the other hand, this card represents all the most elegant, intellectual and civilized things. Art, music and other forms of beauty are fields that contribute extremely special roles in our material life (Pentacles). The currency present on the card tends to lie on the ground. That image represents a message that even though it is important to take care for life, we do not always necessarily have to focus on the mundane trivial matter. We can enjoy the noble things of life.

The Nine of Pentacles can also be a sign of discipline and self-control. This woman is enjoying a cultural life because she has mastered her moral instincts. The image of the bird of grey symbolizes all the dark and unruly thoughts in human nature. In fact, the dark sides of each individual can only serve well when they are under controlled and ordered. Sometimes, this card is a call for you to show restraint and self-control if you want to achieve the highest effort. You may be sacrificing but what you get will be worth the trade-off.

This card also represents independence. Sometimes, you have to trust your ability to deal with situations. You need to solve problems by yourself instead of asking others to do it for you. Our elegant woman has made it. She had faith in her own persistence and determination, and now she is enjoying all the good things that life brings.
