9 of Swords

Card of the Day – 9 of Swords – Thursday, October 12, 2017

Posted on Updated on

You are at a very crucial point in life, knowing that change must come, but perhaps in despair because it isn’t happening today. The 9 of Swords is that card of nightmares, doubts, fears, and overall anxiety which is really of no merit. All of the ‘what-ifs’, merely serve to aid you in making a mountain out of a molehill. Turn it off and get some rest; the change will be here before you know it.

If you are having some intense dreams, do pay attention to them. Neptune is still retrograde through November 22, and would like to show you some truths which you need to face. Your dreams have messages, and if you can decode them, you will have some answers and be in a much better place by November 22. Do not ever think you are not worthy of the changes you desire; self-doubt can be crippling. Put silly thoughts out of your head and go to sleep, so that you will be ready to face the brand new day.

Featured Card of the Day – 9 of Swords – Joie de Vivre Tarot by Paulina Cassidy

Posted on Updated on

Artist:  Paulina Cassidy 

Website:  http://www.paulina.ws

Keywords

Perspective, oppression, anxiety, hope, light.

Artist Interpretation 

Frozen by fear, Woe sits in a tree, terrified by the piranah-like monsters around him. If only he were to look up and see the heartflowers dangling from the branches, he’d discover that a change in perspective will make all the difference in the world.

Card Meaning 

When worry and anxiety overtake your life, it’s time for some soul-searching and mind-healing. Change will begin once you recognize that you need a change, and even a small change can make a big difference in your perspective. Release those mental-fears, and have faith that there is always a solution. The darkest hour is before the dawn, and the sun shall soon be rising.

Reversed

Distrust and suspicion. Total isolation.

Featured Card of the Day – 9 of Swords – Monstarot from Joanna Nelson Studio

Posted on Updated on

Artist: Joanna Nelson

Website: JoannaNelsonStudio.com

Keywords

Worry, despair, nightmares

Artist Interpretation

This little monster appears to just be waking from a bad dream to discover looming swords above him. He has a look of fear and clings tight to teddy for comfort. The swords are all in his imagination; he is still in a bad dream. Wake up!

Card Meaning

Your doubts and nightmares are weighing you down. The swords are held in the air – it is not a physical issue that you face, but mental anguish. Occasional stress is a part of life, and you should not ignore concerns and worries, but you can’t let yourself get bogged down in them either. If you allow your fears to paralyze and control you, you can end up making yourself ill.

Card of the Day – 9 of Swords – Saturday, April 22, 2017

Posted on Updated on

Our 9 of Swords today comes to us from first-time artist for 78 Tarot, Jessica Perner, and she has definitely captured the meaning of the card. This will be in the deck, 78 Tarot Astral ~ Tarot in Space, due out in November. Typical meanings of this card include sleeplessness, depression, anxiety, self-doubt and undue worry. So, let’s talk about how this shakes out for you today.

None of us is a stranger to wanting a good night sleep, only to go to bed and find ourselves wide awake with thoughts which we can not seem to quiet. Very often, there seems to be no rhyme or reason, however, today I think we have plenty. There has been a huge shift in energies this week…Pluto retrograded for the next five months and will have you looking over your life from all angles. Mars is now in Gemini, which is a more active placement than when it was in Taurus, and energetically you may feel as though you are all over the place. Mercury has re-entered Aries, a much more forceful and mental type of communication is in the air. So, do you see what I am saying? Very often when you can not simply shut things off, it is not that there is truly anything wrong, moreso that the energy in the Universe has your mind working on overload. Speaking of which, the Moon is currently in Pisces, so your imagination may simply run amok, and you may find yourself making the proverbial mountain out of a molehill. It is energy, and this too shall pass. Get some sleep, May is coming!

Card of the Day – 9 of Swords – Friday, March 24, 2017

Posted on Updated on

It has been some time since we have seen this card, but I am not at all surprised today at its current placement. The New Moon in Aries is only three days away, and of course the Sun and Mercury are there as well. So how are you sleeping? We have already talked about the antsiness to get things going in your life, in the direction that you want. Our sleepless woman from the popular deck, Legacy of the Divine Tarot, is busy worrying herself over needless things.

One sleep issue which I believe everyone possesses from time to time, and some more so than others, is that laying awake recounting in your mind all of the various scenarios of your future and how they could possibly play out for you. Stop it! It is one thing to have a plan, it is quite another to think that your thoughts can forcibly make everyone and everything coincide to the picture you have in your mind. Your rest is more important if you hope to accomplish the important tasks which will take you to your future. So, get some sleep, stop worrying over things which will probably never happen, and allow yourself to wake up bright-eyed and bushy-tailed to use all of the Aries energy available to your advantage.

Featured Card of the Day – 9 of Swords – 78 Tarot Carnival ~ Cirque du Tarot

Posted on Updated on

Artist: Cora Crimson

Keywords

Anguish, nightmares, insomnia, fear, misery

Artist’s Statement

“The sword swallower has awoken suddenly from a nightmare to find that her bad dreams have begun to fuse with reality. Aside from being a common part of a carnival act, a swallowed sword symbolizes personal fear, discomfort and pain. The swords has been engraved with the symbols of Gemini and wind, representing the zodiac and elemental forces behind her struggle.

The eight swords hanging over her bed represent the many fears and worries that she has that may or may not be real, but they are always lurking in the back of her mind, particularly when she tries to nod off to sleep. She is unable to sleep because of her physical and emotional state, and is trapped in a world where she has come face to face with her worst nightmares.”

Card Meaning

A sword swallower suddently sits up in bed. She has just woken up from a nightmare, her performance anxieties manifested as a physical sword in her throat, causing her pain and anxiety. Her face is a mask of fear. Eight other swords hang at her headboard, warning that she has many concerns hanging figuratively over her, preventing her from sleeping peacefully. The fact that these swords are suspended in mid-air suggests that these worries are generally matters of the mind, rather than physical issues.

This card warns against letting our fears paralyse us and take over our lives. It serves to remind us that while it is only natural to worry and feel occasional stress, we have to be kinder to ourselves and let go of these anxieties before they impact too much on our lives.

Featured Card of the Day – 9 of Swords – 78 Tarot Nautical/Tarot of the Water

Artist’s Interpretation & Card Meaning

“Since the card is about waking from a nightmare and mental anguish, I wanted the imagery to have a bit of a dream-like, surreal feel. Side note: The cat eats the mouse and ironically, the fish…Shark eats the cat in my mind. ha!!! A dream within a dream, or a nightmare within a nightmare. There are a lot of ways to explain this image…the mouse feels trapped! The mask is to hide. The candle shows hope. The surreal feel is to say that this anguish is all mental, not physical. Wake up!

I have added symbols to the newspaper boat – the sword fight (like in the wood-carved night stand of the original card image), some astrological signs (just as the quilt has in the original card), the number nine, the words “wake up” and thought that although it will be small in “Tarot card size”, that it will be a nice little hidden gem and fun surprise for the viewer to discover!”

A masked mouse sits in a paper boat, surrounded by swords, a black cat looming over him. Despite the mask, there is anguish on the face of the mouse as he looks up at the cat, from an eight-bladed cage, a ninth sword hanging over it like the sword of Damocles. The cat is concentrating on his intended meal, unaware of a black shark, swimming among the clouds that hang in a stormy sky, ready to feast on him.

This card is one of surreal, nightmarish visions, buth that is all they are – symptoms of mental anguish, rather than impending physical harm. If you are ready and willing to work through this pain, your peace of mind will return.
