HP Tarot - 9D Gain

(2008) 5 1/2" x 10 1/2" Pencil on Paper. Processed and framed in Photoshop.

The 9s constitute the last impulse on the four elements before they reach their final manifestation in the 10s. The 9s are ruled by the Moon and by the subconscious – drives and impulses that are rarely fully transparent to us and that may work for us or against us.

The Earth element in the Disks responds well to this influence. It inspires us to grow and to try more than we ever thought ourselves capable of, because we have an instinctive belief that we will find what we need along the way. We are capable to achieve what we put our mind to, and somehow it feels as if the universe recognized our sincerity and responded in kind. When drawn the card may indicate a stroke of luck – a business deal that goes through, a promotion we’ve been working towards, finding “the one” that’s right for us…

What better to symbolize this meaning that the Room of Requirement? There you walk the castle with this intense need firmly fixed in your mind and next you are met with precisely the manifestation of all the things that will meet that need – this is exactly what the 9 of Disks stands for. Here the room is just about to open. Nine pairs of stones part to open the gate, one stone of each pair inscribed with a symbol for the geomantic figure of acquisitio – gain.

Thank you! I typically use reference shots and I liked this one because of the mad angle! The bricks and light I made up out of my mind (still surprised how well it turned out, because making up stuff from scratch is not one of my strong points)

Thank you! I really had fun with the scrollwork and the light streaming through the gaps in the stones. I wonder what the seeker required, for whom the room is just about to open...
