9 of Swords

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

Website: CoraCrimson.com

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

Posted on Updated on

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.

Card of the Day – 9 of Swords – Sunday, November 13, 2016

Posted on Updated on

What has been keeping you awake at night? The fears may be real and looming larger than life, but real or not, it is not good to dwell on them. It is often the current energies which can cause you to feel this way so it is important to remember that tomorrow there is a Supermoon Full Moon in Taurus. It has been almost 70 years since there has been one this close to the earth.  It will be deeply felt and bring great change. 

So know that if you are feeling rather bad or down about things today, and worried about the current state of affairs, that when this passes your fears may subside and allow you to push forward in spite of them.

Card of the Day – 9 of Swords – Friday, July 22, 2016

Posted on Updated on

Who’s afraid of the big, bad goose? Normally, I would be cautioning you to stop making mountains out of molehills, but surprisingly enough, I feel many of you are reaching a place on your journey where you are confronting all of the fears and nightmarish issues of your life in a head-on fashion. Good for you!

Self-doubt seems to have gradually been replaced by self-confidence. This is only the beginning, and while you still may encounter plenty of sleepless nights, they are less about the what-if’s, and more about the excitement of the I-can’s and I-will’s. In merely a matter of days, life is about to take a turn, and the ride may even be a little bumpy, but your ability to look fear in the eye is what will take you to the other side. Know that you will be entering 2017 with a renewed, positive outlook on life. While you will undoubtedly be glad to say goodbye to 2016, you will be thankful for where it drops you off to continue on your merry way.

See you here tomorrow!

Thanks in advance for your share!❤️

Card of the Day – 9 of Swords – Saturday, June 11, 2016

Posted on Updated on

Could it all be in your mind? This energy is always a good indicator that you may be making a mountain out of a molehill. Self-doubt, nightmares, and lack of sleep, just to name a few tend to overtake one when the 9 of Swords makes an appearance. Thoughts are things, and sometimes the imagination can really be one’s enemy. Try not to replay the events of the day in your mind, or create scenarios which leave you with only negative outcomes.

This is an energy over which you can have control. But, you need to learn to look at things realistically in the light of day. If dreams are powerful, look up their meanings and symbolism to see if there is an area on which you could be working. In the meantime, get some rest; your future is coming.

See you here tomorrow!

Card of the Day – 9 of Swords – Sunday, May 22, 2016

Posted on Updated on

What can I say? It is a busy sky. The Sun is now in Gemini, yesterday’s Full Moon in Sagittarius is only hours old, and Mercury goes direct today! If you are feeling a little UGH!! at the moment, just know it is from all of the energies. Mars is also strongly in the mix at the time of this Full Moon. Typically, this card shows a rather fearful person sitting up in bed, unable to sleep. Breathe, relax, it will soon pass. The fears often associated with this card are normally unfounded, you know, the old making a mountain out of a molehill. Tomorrow will feel better as we pull away from the energy of the Full Moon and experience our first full day of only having three retrograding planets.

So, if you can’t sleep, then grab your favorite comfort food and hang out under the covers and bingewatch Netflix or something mindless to pass the time. Steer your focus away from the demons which are haunting you, and after a good night sleep more will be right in your corner of the world.

See you here tomorrow!

Thanks in advance for your share!❤️

Card of the Day – 9 of Swords – Wednesday, November 25, 2015

Posted on Updated on

  

Today, there is a Full Moon in Gemini. Gemini is an air sign and rules intellect and communication. Our card today fits right in as it is generally associated with mental anguish. Don’t overthink things today. This can lead to undue worry on your part. 

Not everything is meant to be known at this time, so overthinking will be of no use. Do not doubt yourself and your self-worth today. You have come this far and already survived the difficult part. Remember that. Be clear in your communications today. 

You are in a new chapter of life which still has much work to be done. The universe has been guiding you and you will reach the proper goals at the right time. Do not fear the unknown as good things are coming your way. 

See you here tomorrow!

Card of the Day – 9 of Swords – Wednesday, October 7, 2015

Posted on Updated on

Stop worrying! Look at how far you have come. You are almost at the beginning. I know I sound like a broken record, but really, it is so important for you to remain positive right now. When your new chapter unfolds it will begin gradually. There will be no room for self-doubt and second guessing. 

You have been eliminating the things which no longer serve you. Remember, soon something is coming in to fill that void. You do deserve to be happy and the universe is working hard to make it so.
