The Force in fulfillment- balance of the nine is very apparent in this card.. The Nine of Disks-Gain is ruled by Venus in Virgo and shows good luck in material affairs, favor and popularity.
The card illustrates this balance by forming equilateral triangles of Disks with apex upwards, surrounded at some distance, by a ring consisting of six larger disks in the form of a hexagram; signifying the multiplication of the established Word (Logos) by the commingle of "good luck and good fortune" . In other-words, the First vibration has become nine individual vibrations that combine in such away, that successful creation was established, as is out of nowhere. However, this multiplicity of Vibration tends to slow everything down, to the point of crystallization. This is shown in the 9 of Disks as the three central disks are of the magical pattern as in earlier cards. The descent into matter implies the gradual exhaustion of the original whirling energy, so the other disks now take the shape of coins that are marked with the appropriate magical images of the planets. This tends to complicate the image, as all weaving (Wyrding) tends to make it hard to find the original thread that began the tapestry. FYI ---the Thoth Deck Disks are called Pentacles or Coins on most other decks.
When this card is thrown during a reading, it implies that in 9 weeks or 9 months the querent has experienced or will experience an inheritance, and/or much increase in money. 9's are the number of completeness, so complete realization of material gain is suggested here. According to the dignity inferred by the accompanying cards, this could also be covetousness, treasuring of goods, and maybe even theft and underhanded waggery. Spiritual activity is implied here also, but Disks are Earth-Material so spiritual awareness maybe gained in the spiraling of the downward flow of Force and Form, but very slowly and may be hardly noticed. It's all about perspective. If we look at ourselves from the lofty perch of the Soul (Tiphareth-Beauty) all is easily seen, understood and adjusted, in the daily life of the physical person that the Soul's Vibrations produce; However, if we are looking up from the Earthly presence towards our incomprehensible Soul....we tend to only see what we are trained to see. The necessary perspective changes to achieve this Psyche enlightenment of Looking downward at ourselves, is why the Adept studies the Tree of Life and achieves personal initiation on each state of energy conscious called Sephira, To Know Thyself requires us to look beyond ourselves which is a many step perspective change!
