Nine of Pentacles - Wisdom, Knowledge & Talent

What the Nine of Pentacles represents, I don't think I could ask for more in life, wisdom, knowledge and talent. I can find wisdom in many spiritual writings, and experience, it provides me with much instruction and knowledge.

Talent is something a little different in that we are not all equal in having the same talents. But we all have the capacity to develop skills, if we have the passion, and we work at practicing those skills to be learned. I think having a passion is more important than concerning yourself with talent.
Of course, being an artist, when I hear the word talent, I immediately relate it to creativity, which I believe everyone is born with, in some way or another, regardless if you consider yourself an artist or not.

I am very fond of the Nine of Pentacles, because it is a very positive and encouraging card, that speaks of achievement, recognition and reward for real efforts made.

The Nine of Pentacles is a very appropriate, and timely card for me today, for a number of reasons.
I'm finally, very soon, reaching the end of a twenty year mortgage, that I will be free of next month!
I have submitted two paintings for art exhibits coming up within the next two weeks.
Lastly, I am very excited, and encouraged about the beginnings of a new business I've started this year.

My favorite Nine of Pents card is from World Spirit:
It just makes me want to sigh with contentment. :) It represents "simple abundance" for me; a good place with more possibilities on the horizon. After reading your list of three reasons, it sounds like the place you're in for sure!

Thank you ((((Ellen)))). It feels good! Especially the end of that mortgage, like the albatross around my neck. I'll sure be giving that a fling and doing the Happy Dance of Joy! Makes ya just wanna rip your clothes of and run around through the fields! But I won't do that...but I will in my imagination!

Oh thank you Bev! I will check that out!
Contentment and peace of mind, that comes with gratitude, is a good life I think. At this stage of my life just on the other side of sixty I try hard to do what my old sponsor says, " Don't sweat the petty things, and don't pet the sweaty things". Works for me!

Ha, I have creativity, but no artistic talent, nor the time to devote to it that it would take. Congratulations on getting two pieces into exhibits - that must be a fabulous feeling! And likewise on coming to the end of your mortgage. Truly, standing in your place of abundance and joy :)
