NINE OF SWORDS in The RIDER WAITE Deck of Tarot Cards
Grief, despair, distress, desolation, illness, stress.
Here a figure sits up in a bed, crying or very distressed and with 9 swords on the wall behind.
This card indicates grief, desolation, despair, great pain, worry, stress and sadness. It can also indicate health issues and hospital visits.
If someone is it at their wits end, this card can mean great anxiety, depression, nightmares and insomnia. It can mean illness.
This will often be some sort of stress related condition. In readings for women, this card can indicate women’s health issues or even surgery.
With the head in the hands, this can indicate a refusal to look at the world or to bury your head in the sand, in the hope that problems will go away.
During the dark of the night is the time when all our fears, doubts, worries, feelings of guilt and anxiety come bubbling up to the surface. Sometimes the pain of these feelings is so much we feel like just putting our head in our hands and crying.
It may be that you need to examine the choices you are making in life and perhaps a small change could make a big difference in the way you feel and the actions you take.
With abundant blessings.
