Whenever I see trunks and chests like these, I think of two things: treasure and travel. The Nine of Coins shows a person who has finally learned to manage their resources wisely. Hard work, discipline and perseverance has paid off handsomely. Not only is there a nice little "nest egg" to show for all that effort, there is leisure time for trips, artistic exploration, intellectual pursuits or just enjoying life in general. And something else has happened as well - the follower has become a leader, confident and independent with plenty of experience under his or her belt. On each of the door panels are stencils of nine pentacles arranged in the 3 x 3 shape of a square, denoting stability and security. The lock on the door suggests that this person has become of good steward, a person very aware of what resources go in and out that door. But I sense of a bit of loneliness in this room; there are no family, pet or group pictures anywhere. It feels quite impersonal. Although this person may be cultured and well-traveled, with an attic full of souvenirs and goodies, they lack a close friend or like-minded group with whom to share this success.
