Nine of Coins from the Rider-Waite Tarot deck

Nine of Coins is a card used in Latin suited playing cards which include tarot decks. It is part of what tarot card readers call the "Minor Arcana"

Tarot cards are used throughout much of Europe to play Tarot card games[1].

In English-speaking countries, where the games are largely unknown, Tarot cards came to be utilized primarily for divinatory purposes[1][2].

Rider-Waite symbolism

  • She is surrounded by an abundance of grapevines on a large estate, most likely representing a fine material status.
  • Her lofty demeanor is almost aristocratic and she may reflect a bourgeois personality.
  • Her facial expression does not show any enthusiasm at the abundance thereabout, which may testify to her strong perfectionistic demeanor and difficulty finding satisfaction.
  • Her robe is decorated with flowers, which may testify to the refinement of her senses.
  • A hooded falcon rests at ease on her arm, again pointing to her aristocratic upbringing and complacent ignorance of the world beyond her garden.
  • A young snail, denoted by a blue shell, makes its way across her path. She is unaware of its potentially fatal proximity.
