Let’s go deeper with 6 of Pentacles, this time with the Thoth deck 6 of Disks.

You can see that Crowley’s image is much more purely symbolic than the tarot decks we see more often.  And he’s titled the card “Success”.   What’s it all about (Alfie)?

Take a look at the 5 of Pentacles.  Not so much an image of success, is it?  What would it take to get from 5 of Pentacles to 6 of Pentacles?  In other words, what makes people successful?

Time and cycles are one of the implications of the astrological signs on 6 of Disks.  So are balancing various aspects of oneself or of a situation.

And then there’s the Rose Cross in the centre, symbol of the soul manifesting in the material plane.  We could call it  living true to the soul’s purpose.

So, what if you looked to your personal characteristics, the strengths and weaknesses you possess to draw from and guide you?  And what if you combined those with your deepest dream for the world?  If you were persistent over time, and rode out the changing cycles of fortune, constantly applying yourself to your dream, what might happen?

6 of Disks says that, if you recognize what you’ve been given and use it wisely, in the service of others, you’ll make something of your condition.  True success.

Now, what would you make of the situation if you saw 6 of Pentacles next to 9 of Cups?  How about 6 of Pentacles next to 0 The Fool?  Or the 4 of Swords?  Or all three?

And, finally, how do you relate all this to what you learned earlier about 6 of Pentacles?

Accept your deepest self and give it expression this week!

Oh, you’ve earned a beautiful life when 9 of Pentacles shows up!  You’ve followed your vision with discipline to create wealth and security for yourself.  You’re reaping the rewards of your own true work.

You’ve seen people who are wealthy and materially secure but very unhappy and unfulfilled.  That’s not 9 of Pentacles.

9 of Pentacles are those people who recognize that they’re surrounded by bounty and luxury and know enough to enjoy the wealth.  They’ve developed discrimination and know what really matters in life.

And maybe “they” is “you” this week!

Out of balance, 9 of Pentacles is the lap dog mentality: thinking you deserve to be waited on hand and foot.  In balance, it allows your spirit to soar.

Take a look back to the 10 of Pentacles post .  Can you see how the 9 and 10 of Pentacles are connected?

Janine Worthington is developing a deck that looks at the steps that get us from one card to another.    If she called you, asking what step or steps you’d take to get from being 9 of Pentacles to being 10 of Pentacles, what’s the story you’d tell her?

Laura has her own 9 of Pentacles story to tell, which has led to the special 10 of Pentacles community that is On the Wings of Dreams.

With all that inspiration, how can you help but find your discipline  and follow your own dream!


If your discipline and dreams seem out of reach,  you know where to find me.  You can also get in touch for individual and group lessons.

We’ve had another look at how to grow the 9 of Pentacles here.
