Nine of Pentacles Tarot Card in Reverse Meaning
When the Nine of Pentacles comes up in a reversed position, it often hints that there’s some sort of a disconnect between hard work and getting to enjoy the rewards. If that’s the case for you, it could be happening in a few different ways.
First, perhaps you are indeed receiving the benefits of your labor, but you’re not actually enjoying them. If that’s the case, is it possible it’s a question of self-worth? Sometimes our external progress outstrips our self-image. It can feel hard to be able to appreciate what’s happened because we don’t feel like we deserve it. When that happens, we’re given an opportunity to invest in and build up ourselves. Take yours!
This minor arcana card can also appear reversed when you’re way overdue to slow down and soak in your success. Did your work start paying off, and then you just kept going? The Nine of Pentacles when reversed cautions you against burning yourself out while failing to appreciate what you’ve accomplished.
Finally, the Nine of Pentacles can sometimes show up in reverse when the pursuit of success brings someone away from their purpose and integrity. When that happens, it’s a reminder that the ends don’t always justify the means. Taking a shortcut can undercut that feeling of earned success, even making everything come crashing down.
