Hello from Tarot Talk – a weekly column in which I introduce a Tarot card for the week and provide a little information about it. I hope you continue to enjoy this space.
This week’s card is the Nine of Swords. This is often called the “nightmare card”. However, as Swords represent intellect and thoughts, the troubles shown by the Nine of Swords are primarily psychological i.e. they are largely in the mind and are not real. The Nine of Swords can indicate that our fears and negative expectations are paralysing us – causing us sleepless nights and worry.
If we allow ourselves to be bound by fear of the future we may eventually create a negative reality for ourselves by virtue of our expectations. The message of this card is that although all of us experience fear, frustration, and uncertainty we should not allow those negative emotions to immobilise us or keep us from pursuing our goals with enthusiasm and hope.
The future will always be uncertain, yet we can face this uncertainty with inner strength and the support of our “higher power.” This card is often a warning from your Inner Guide that the path you are going down may be a difficult one. If you approach the Nine of Swords in this spirit – as a “Caution” sign – you will be able to use it constructively. Examine your situation carefully to be sure you are making the best choices. Even a small change can make all the difference.
