Mythic Tarot - Nine Pentacles

Daedelus stands with his hands folded and a contented look upon his face. His workman’s clothes have been replaced by a gown and he wears a laurel wreath. Nine pentacles are stacked before him and he is surrounded by a trellis that is laden with grapevines.

Laurel Leaves/Wreath
  • laurel was used to crown victors in contests; the striving spirit and crown of victory are aspects of Apollo
  • symbol of victory, peace, purification, protection, divination, secret knowledge and immortality
  • laurel wreaths were worn by those worthy of honor, especially poets (poet laureate)
  • a state of great satisfaction
  • the solitary enjoyment of good things
  • the pleasure in self-sufficiency and accomplishment which can only come from within oneself and which one offers to oneself
  • satisfaction in knowing that one’s wits and efforts have ensured one’s survival, wealth and position for the rest of one’s life
  • reward and achievement in one’s own eyes
  • worldly achievement
  • a deep and permanent sense of self-value that has been earned through meeting life’s challenges and surviving them all
  • the ability to rely on oneself without needing the constant support of others
Random Thoughts
  • an unconventional path to success
  • risk that has paid off
  • I have survived
  • that which doesn’t kill us makes us stronger
  • the potential shown by the grapes in the 8 has increased even further since there are now six bunches hanging from the trellis
  • perfected work since all nine pentacles are finished
  • someone who has a spotty past finally makes good

The keyword/phrase that I came up with in my workbook on 14Mar92 was "satisfaction (personal)".


Smile. It makes people wonder what you're thinking....

Who is behind the Aeclectic Tarot Forum?

My name is Kate Hill (also known as Solandia) and I'm a Tarot reader, deck collector, and lifelong student of the beauty and diversity of Tarot cards.

I created Aeclectic in 1996 to share my passion for Tarot with the world, and started the forum in 2000 so others could share theirs too. Read more about me, contact me or connect in the forum.
