After Achilles died, his good friend Ajax claimed his divinely made armor, but his army voted to give it to someone else.

Thats Hades up there, Lord of the Underworld and our Death card. But although hes busy dragging off one of the recently deceased, the Death card rarely indicates actual, physical death.

Six of Pentacles Reversed

Ancient Greece is seen as the founder of modern drama not only because of the skills of its playwrights, but because of the wealthy businessmen willing to sponsor performances.

External Forces represents the influence of others in your life as well as trends in your relationships with others.

 
Nine of Pentacles Reversed

Plutus, god of wealth and good harvests, was blinded by Zeus so he would distribute his bounty without consideration of someones worthiness.

The Nine reversed indicates that you may be feeling envious of someone elses good fortune, or may feel under rewarded for your own hard work.

The Outcome the ultimate outcome your question. Remember the future is not predetermined. Interpret this card in the context of the entire reading and as an indicator of the path you are currently on, but not bound to. reading.

 
Three of Pentacles Reversed

The horai, goddesses of the seasons, were also goddesses of proper timing.

Accept that delays happen, and pace yourself.
