Eight precedes nine here. Eight is about personal will, power, action, us versus our egos, agency, while nine is about that final push, the penultimate, or manifestation...it can also represent exhaustion (looking at you, Nine of Wands). In the suit of Pentacles, eight has to do with craft-work. Some people read it in a more modern context and say it's about engaging in a hobby. In any case, the energy here is blocked or unbalanced, and the will to build, or craft, is lost or suppressed. Nine of Pentacles is blocked too, meaning that growth in career/body/money is perhaps not being realized. It may help to revisit Seven of Pentacles. Seven is about intuition, spiritual knowledge, "reaping what you sow," as well as self-interest. Perhaps you must figure out what is holding you back from building whatever it is that you're looking to build. Were you impatient with a project? Maybe you greenlit something that wasn't ready because you were so focused on the end-result? Sit with seven for a while - work on building intuition about your project. Because both cards are in the Pentacles suit, this project may be some kind of physical, tangible object. Or perhaps the "project" is the body. Whatever it is, it is linked to the material. (Pentacles are associated with the element Earth, which has to do with the tangible, the physical, the material.) Figure out what's holding you back in seven (TBH, it's probably you / the ego - perhaps self-protection stood in the way of true growth) so that you can craft with agency in right and then you can reap the rewards from what you've sown.
Since there's a lotta Earth in the cards, break it up with fiery citrine (for manifestation and engagement of will) and carnelian (for self-confidence). Lapis lazuli will help you develop some wisdom regarding the stagnancy in crafting, while pyrite helps you achieve your goal. Finally, use amethyst to encourage creativity.
