For example, one of you is very busy or travels a lot, and requires a partner who “has a life” and does theirr own thing. One of you could run a volatile business or work in a high-risk industry, and you need to know that your partner can’t depend on you financially.

Both of you perhaps became the best, most productive, most abundant versions of yourself during this relationship. This relationship has become the solid relationship that it is, because of the discipline that both of you exercise during its early stages. One of the strengths of this relationship is the fact that both of you are self-reliant people, and while you’re all about supporting each other, neither of you are overly codependent on the other.
If you are currently in separation with each other, the Nine of Pentacles as love outcome means a couple that is with each other not because they need each other, but because they want to be with each other.

If you are asking about what is the outcome of a relationship, and you draw the Nine of Pentacles reversed, that means that money matters might be a sore point in this relationship. When this card is drawn upright, it usually indicates a refined, independently wealthy individual. In the reverse, this would be a person who fakes it until they make it. This energy of faking it until they make it may apply in other aspects of life, such as career, and even relationships. They may pretend to be more financially successful than they are to draw in potential suitors. This may even be a person who fakes being in love with another person because they have ulterior motives.
The Nine of Pentacles reversed as love outcome is a sign of losing one’s identity in another person. In the upright position, this is the energy of a mature, experienced woman who has come into her own. She is confident, has a healthy level of self love, and knows how to stand up for herself. In the reverse position, this may be somebody who is immature for their age. No matter what their age is, they still have a tendency to become “lost” in another person, even “becoming” their partner to please and appease them.
If you are wondering about a potential relationship, the Nine of Pentacles reversed as love outcome means somebody may be overly focused on finances. You may find yourself in a relationship with somebody who is only after your finances or the lifestyle you’re able to provide. This card also advises caution against manipulation tactics such as love bombing. This person could be motivated by getting something from you, rather than their love for you, and they’re willing to do whatever it takes to get that thing. Even if that means becoming somebody they’re not, as a way to ease themselves into your lives. Ask a lot of questions and do your due diligence as, in the reverse, this card carries a “con artist” energy to it.
If you are in a new relationship, the Nine of Pentacles reversed as love outcome means you need to stand your ground when it comes to your core identity. In the upright, the Nine of Pentacles is the energy of somebody who has come to their own. Not only does she know what she wants, and goes after what she wants, she will not accept less. In the reverse, this could become the energy of becoming a pushover in the name of love. This card warns against lowering your standards, just to put up with someone you love. You should be loved for being who you are authentically, rather than your willingness to become overly “adaptable”.
If you are in an existing relationship, the Nine of Pentacles reversed as love outcome means your overly “independent” nature may impact the relationship negatively. The light side of this card is maintaining one’s personality in a relationship, and being faithful to their authentic self. The shadow side of this card’s energy, unfortunately, is having such an overbearing personality that it becomes burdensome to the other person in the relationship. Another issue that may arise, is because this is the “happily single” card, when both of you may feel smothered and suffocated in the relationship. One or both of you may act single, and remain receptive to romantic attention from others. Someone in this relationship needs to be more accommodating and nurturing toward the other.
If you are currently in separation with each other, the Nine of Pentacles reversed as love outcome means extreme clinginess and lack of Independence, causing an unhealthy dynamic. If you are separated by distance, you or your person may have codependency issues made worse by the fact that you are in a long distance relationship. Being physically apart from each other is hard enough on those who have healthy behavioral patterns in relationships. If you are inquiring about an ex you’re interested in reconciling with, they cannot handle single life after breaking up with you. However, be mindful that your person may ask to reconcile with you because they can’t stand to be single. Alternatively, this may be how you feel about them, in which case you should ask yourself why you would want to reconcile with someone who you know is no good for you.
