When asking about career, the Nine of Pentacles tells me that one's ideal career is best when both solid and flexible at the same time. What's required is the stability of service, yet also the wish to not be boxed into the same routine or location day in and day out. There is a desire to be one's own boss or at least FEEL like they are their own boss.
One can have the best of both worlds with this card -- the foundation/structure of the established that the pentacles represents, and the open sky for the falcon to spread its wings and fly high. The combination of that energy can nurture the body, soothe the mind and feed the spirit.
With the solidity of the pentacles, this is a path that one is already on. The goal is either already attained or firmly set in place and movement is being made in its direction.
