72-Nine of Coins – Upright Golden Deck

Your Chosen Card – Nine of Coins Upright Golden Deck

When upright, the Nine of Coins depicts the discerning virgin of the sign Virgo, a self-contained maiden modeled after Astraea/Dike, the goddess of purity and justice who held a grain of wheat in her left hand. Under Astraea’s rule, the human race enjoyed peace, prosperity, perfect weather, and eternal youth. Unfortunately, the increasing vileness of human behavior caused the discerning goddess to flee to the heavens where she became the constellation Virgo, isolated from the wickedness of humankind. The Nine of Coins is a card of accomplishment, refinement, material fortune, and enjoyment of the fruits of the harvest. It indicates being rewarded for discretion, hard work, meticulous care, and prudent planning.

Book Details
Reversed Cards: At the beginning of this section, I discussed how the nine in numerology is the end of a cycle. The Nine of Coins of The Raven’s Prophecy Tarot features only a fully bloomed rose and could not capture this energy any more perfectly. But what happens next? Once something has bloomed, it has nowhere else to go. The growing is done, and the only thing left is to be transformed by death. This is a very real fear for a lot of people; if they allow themselves success or happiness or even love, once it is obtained, there will be nothing left but to die. This fear can be so strong that it acts as the biggest self-destruct button you have ever created! Be mindful when this card shows up in the shadow aspect.

Tarot Books

Complete Book of Tarot: The Golden Dawn assigned the first decan of Leo to the Prince of the Chariot of Fire, that is, the Marseille King of Wands. The confusion arises because the Golden Dawn views Princes as traditional Kings, symbolized by the regal sign Leo and the royal star Regulus, but at the same time it views the Knights as the most senior members of the court cards. As Crowley stated, there is no easy way, based in logic, to resolve this dilemma, so choices have to be made.

Portable Magic: My rituals are performed facing the south at the beginning, rather than facing the east, as is the usual Golden Dawn practice. It is the starting point of the circle in my rituals.
