Everyday Tarot, 06/29/11: Graduation Lessons from Nine of Coins

nine-coins-legacy-tarot-forecastGrappling with “old news” issues, it’s easy enough to feel like you are just not making any progress. Easy enough, sure, but not really true. Just because you can still feel it doesn’t mean you’re not mastering it, you know? It still may be Graduation day. That’s what I’m telling myself today.

Maybe you’ll agree. And maybe it will answer some of the questions I’ve been getting on yesterday’s Everyday Tarot.

Today’s Tarot is the Nine of Coins, or “Lord of Material Gain,” associated with Venus in Virgo. You’ll often see this card when someone is going back to school, either literally or figuratively. It’s exams! This is a lady of refinement—she’s done the Eight of Pentacles work, and has the understanding to show for her dedication. To get here, she’s already overcame many obstacles—most notably, internal. Her falcon (base nature) is well trained, because she’s put the required effort into doing so.

If this is where you’re at , the natural question is “What next?” We’re at integration now, mastering the lessons that have shown up along the trip, recognizing and acknowledging  how far we’ve traveled.

From here, we move to the Ten of Coins, where our sense of home, family and prosperity merge. It’s a nice place to live.

The Nine of Coins reminds us we HAVE been learning along the way, and if we’re prepared to value (Venus) the clarity (Virgo), we can pull together a lovely whole incorporating all we’ve learned. Yes, there is prioritizing (Virgo) underway, but hey—since when is being clear on what you value (Venus) a bad idea?

We’ve lived, we’ve felt and we’ve learned. Now it’s time to use that wisdom to keep living, only better.

Do you see the Nine of Coins in your life? Or around you?
