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!

Thanks in advance for your share!❤️

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!

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. 

See you here tomorrow!

Card of the Day – 9 of Swords – Sunday, August 30, 2015

Considering how far you have come, it’s really time to stop this. But, I think old habits die hard. If things actually seem to be going right, it may be difficult to believe the other shoe is not about to drop. It’s that nagging issue with all of it’s what ifs that gets you down and keeps you awake. 

This is a great representation of this card. It shows all the sleepless nights and worry. Much of the worry is self created. How you choose to deal with it means everything. Accept the things which you cannot change and seek the wisdom to change the ones you can. 

See you here tomorrow!
