POSITION 1 – PAST
This position represents the past where the situation originated.
NINE OF PENTACLES – This is a time of contentment. You feel relaxed, peaceful, and quietly confident and you are attractive to others. Your self confidence is evident to all who meet you at this time. Your life may feel settled and a period of calm and peace lies ahead of you. If you are single, rest assured that others have noticed you and your charisma has not escaped them! Take things slowly and watch events unfold at a natural pace.
POSITION 2 – PRESENT
The present situation.
THE HIGH PRIESTESS – Often when the high priestess appears in a spread she advises you to take a step back from the situation and keep your own counsel for the time being. It would seem that there is more to be revealed in this situation than you may know and this secret knowledge will be worth waiting for as it will give you greater insight into the situation.
This is also the card of psychic ability and it may be that, if you are currently following a spiritual path, it is time to sit back and stop “trying” so hard – let the natural flow of the universe guide you.
In a love reading this card can signify the anima, or idealized female of the male psyche. If you’re a man you could be projecting this ideal onto your female partner. This can also represent a woman who is wise and can give you good counsel. In a business reading, listen to your intuition, your inner feminine before going ahead with anything new.
POSITION 3 – FUTURE
The most likely outcome for the near future.
THREE OF PENTACLES – Success. You may find that you are now being praised for your achievements, encouraged with your projects and rewarded for your efforts
As a result of this you will feel extra confident and your self esteem will be high.
Others may start to notice your success and word of your skills and talents may spread…
