Nine of Wands

Nine of Wands

We all go through tough situations in life. Toughness is what shapes our life. It makes us strong. If we have the mettle to withstand the blows, then we can come out as a winner. Tarot card reading indicates such instances in life. 9 of Wands is one of the Minor Arcana cards that represents toughness and mental strength. The card represents a tall fiery figure which is ready to fight out the tough condition and achieve an unassailable lead. Courage in the face of attack or adversity is the key to success. Let us see what the descriptive explanation of the card is.

The Nine of Wands cards depicts a weak and injured man holding onto a wand. He is lurking over his shoulder towards the remaining eight wands that looms over him. He is seen as a tired and worn out person who has faced enough difficulties in his life. The additional eight wands indicate an extra challenge the man has faced in his life. The 9th one is his final battle before reaching his destination. He must ensure that the last challenge is the last test of his strength and character before reaching the finish line. Let us see what happens when the card is either upright or reversed.

The upright Nine of Wands symbolises hope, the light at the end of the tunnel. It signifies one should never lose hope in spite of all the troubles faced in life. The determination will somehow win many battles and allow you to overcome difficulties. The won battles are indicated by the remaining eight wands. However, it also indicates there are more battles to be won. This can be the last major battle that you must face to reach before the finish line. The card is a positive one, and it signals hope and encouragement. On the other side, it also indicates that the person has faced many betrayals and is somewhat distrustful towards others. The person is a changed one now as he has gone through many life-changing events.

The 9 of Wands love meaning indicates that you now know achieving the love of your life will take much hard work and determination. There will be sacrifices to be made. But you are now better prepared and have a strategy in place to face any challenges in love. Love demands sacrifice and hard work. Many of us believe that love is a feeling but actually, it is much more than that. It is an emotional agreement between two people, and they should work as a team. It is likely that you will take a mini and measured step to woo your partner so if you are expecting to get a proposal or more than that, you need to work for it.

Nine of Wands in upright position indicates that the battle is half won. The struggle is not over, but you are sure that it will end soon. It may feel like draining you out, and you are exhausted but trust your instinct; you have still one battle left to be won. Let this card serve as reminder that whatever life throws at you is temporary. Career-wise, these life-changing events will make you strong and ready for big moments. This approach will let you finish taxing work well before deadlines.

Thinks don’t look good financially with this card drawn upright. Financially you may not be under a lot of stress, but there are worrying signs. The situation might let you break your fixed deposit and use it for some kind of necessary work. You are likely to take out a loan or borrow money from someone. It is advisable to increase the source of income rather than borrowing money. This can be done through sideway income and may not be permanent. Do not worry; you will come out of this financial hole. Until then, you must confront your family and friends regarding the financial condition.

The 9 of Wands reversed indicates a person is not ready to take a risk or fight a long battle. There are questions about his commitment since he is afraid of the fact that the effort he is putting in may not win him rewards or give him the desired outcome. He is likely to put a personal barrier between him and others that will act as a prison. You are afraid that you lack the resources to complete the work. But your own destiny is in your hand; if you restrict yourself, then you are not likely to achieve the goal. The card reminds you to be brave but careful. Do not take any hasty decision that could cost in future.

All the hard work and dedication will go in vain. Things may not go your way. The best effort you put in, will not bring the desired result. The reversed 9 of Wands tarot love indicates disagreement between you and your partner. There will be quarrel and fights that may take a violent form. In order to get through these stormy times, both of you have to compromise. If you are single, then you need to work extra hard to get a successful relationship.

Professionally, you might be getting tired and drained. This professional fatigue will leave you with disappointment. Remember the work is just a part of life, and there should be a work-life balance. Take a break and try to recharge with strength, and you might see some positivity at your workstation. The struggle can be due to your own misconduct or someone’s witchy eye. If you have to self analyse yourself, then find out the root cause of the stubbornness and try to accept the change.

Reverse Nine of Wands advise you to take responsibility for your financial situations. Things may tempt you to spend more and runway from any financial duties. Escaping might be tempting but it will not solve your problem. Rather this will lead to destruction. At this time, financial responsibility also means close attention to your assets. Chances of theft are also there, so it is advisable to check your valuables.

Nine of Wands reminds you of the struggle you are going through in your life. A strong heart and mind will let you sail through the troubles of life. However, a weak one will succumb to it. If feeling weak, then talk to your most trusted partners, gain confidence, and a sign of positivity will help you in adverse situations. The card is drawn upright, or reverse may influence your decision making but remember positive thinking is what will keep you going.
