Nine of Wands. Tarot Lesson Basics.

Image may contain: 1 personTAROT CARD MEANING: You’ve been weary from constant battle, but you’re being asked to not give up and keep going as you’re closer than you think to reaching your goal. The NINE OF WANDS in the Tarot is about persevering even though you might be exhausted. It’s giving until it hurts and then you give more. This is right along the lines of yesterday’s message on conjuring up strength from within.

You’ve been losing a battle and everyone knows you’re losing, yet you keep going as far as you can go regardless. You might be falling behind or stand no chance of winning, yet you keep going and end up making it! Often times, the Nine of Wands can show you winning or obtaining something you desire, but not without a fight that exhausts you or runs you down.

The image in the Nine of Wands typically shows a figure standing strong ready to go to battle. This may show someone who has no reason to be on the defensive, but they’re overall disposition is as if they are in fighting mode. They are primed and on guard ready to strike. You can be feeling as if everyone is against you, but you refuse to back down or compromise your integrity even if it means you stand alone.

The Nine of Wands can also point to someone who is self-preserved or self-protecting and on high alert. Circumstances may actually be fine, but you feel as if you’ve been dragged through the ringer clawing, kicking, and fighting back. Now you’re standing there holding the Wand almost leaning on it angrily looking around to see if anyone is going to try and take a piece of you!

The Nine of Wands is also the card of the warrior or a soldier ready to go to battle. In a reading, this can be that you’re being paranoid about someone who is back in your life again after they previously betrayed your heart. It might be an ex-lover who did you wrong, then you broke up, and they’re back with you again. The Nine of Wands can reveal you to be feeling paranoid that they might do something that negatively affects you again. This is where you’re on high alert.

This card can be telling you to keep going with a project or a job where you’re ready to throw in the towel. It can also be saying that your paranoid feelings are not unfounded and to continue to watch your back around someone. The Nine of Wands is a reminder that you’ve come so far, keep going, you can do it!!

In a love reading for someone single asking about a potential’s personality, this can show that person as having tremendous strength no matter what. You don’t want to cross this person negatively as they will attack. They might appear hard and rough around the edges, but this is because life may have made them this way. If you look deeper, you’ll find a trusted friend who has your back and will go to battle with or for you.

If you’re single and asking about love, then this card can be asking you to not give up and keep searching. This can reveal that you’ve been frustrated and over it, but the Nine of Wands says that love is coming, so keep the faith and persevere. The Nine of Wands can be the opposite of that where it’s saying that you appear to be standoffish and defensive. This is not welcoming potentials into your environment. You would need to evaluate if you need to make changes or not with how you appear to others by being softer, kinder, and friendly.

If you’re already in a love relationship, then this may be a challenging card to receive. It can say that you or your partner are being defensive with one another. It’s as if you feel they’re constantly criticizing or attacking your every move. You are on the defensive even though they may have stopped criticizing, but the scars are still there. This would be a warning card to ease the mind of one another. Sometimes no problems are evident in a relationship, but one of the partners feels defensive for reasons you cannot figure out. This is someone ready to go to battle, even though there is no reason to be.

In the movie, “I Am Sam”, the Rita character is a good example of the Nine of Wands energy. Someone who is ready for battle. She answers her phone and it’s her estranged husband asking how she is. With hostility she insists she’s fine, but responds again, “What do you mean what do I mean by that?!” You constantly feel as if you’re tip-toing around your partner because they’re touchy about every little thing you say or do. This is someone tense and on guard. This is the Nine of Wands.

This card can continue to show up for a couple who have surpassed their expiration date. It’s a never ending cycle of feeling a hostility or defensiveness with the other partner even though they’re not doing or saying anything wrong. The Nine of Wands is feeling as if there is a constant struggle in the partnership. This may ask you both to lighten up, put down the wall, and meet one another half way.

Connecting with a Tarot Card

Tarot Card Meanings
excerpt

I’ve been a Tarot enthusiast user since I was a child.  I was eight years old staring at the dynamically stimulating images of the cards, and allowing all of the elements surrounding them to hit me like a tsunami wave.   This is the same way I would sift through my parent’s record collection fixating on the album covers when vinyl was the big thing.  The images of the album covers were as vibrant and layered with detail as a Tarot card.

There are endless messages that can come through from staring at any image, let alone a Tarot card.  If you have an attraction to art or a painting, and find yourself picking up on what’s unsaid and getting lost in the caverns of it, then you’re that much closer to being able to efficiently and adequately reading a Tarot card.

I’ve met CEO’s who won’t make a decision without connecting with the Tarot.  Anyone can consult with the cards regardless of what position you hold in life.  It doesn’t matter if you’re a lawyer, doctor, surfer, receptionist, garbage man, plumber, or politician.  The Tarot is an exceptional communication device to receive messages, wisdom, and guidance from your Spirit team for any human soul on the planet.

The brilliance of the Tarot is that it’s for anyone who has a passion for the cards.  There are endless varying takes of the meanings of Tarot cards in a reading that one tried or true way doesn’t exist.  When you feel confident enough with the cards, then you’ll have your own methods that work.

I’ve always found the Tarot to be an excellent divination tool from which to confirm messages with my own Spirit team whenever I felt the incoming messages to be hazy or unclear.  Spirit would then guide me to the right Tarot card to flip over so I could see or confirm what they wanted me to know through a card.  Spirit communicates through symbols and signs as well as other means that can get your attention.  Since the Tarot is ripe with symbolism, this is a great way for them to relay particular messages to you.

Diving into the worlds of the Tarot can take a lifetime of endless study.  When you enjoy what you’re immersing yourself into, then it ends up being a gratifying experience.

Pre-Author Professional Bio:

Kevin began work in the entertainment field weeks after his 23rd birthday joining one of Hollywood’s most respected actors at the height of her box office fame, Michelle Pfeiffer.   The sharp, film-literate worked as her development dude at her company, Via Rosa, where he read and provided coverage on potential projects searching for strong female driven characters-no victims.  He worked through the company’s development and film productions of One Fine DayA Thousand Acres, and The Deep End of the Ocean.

After a number of years, Pfeiffer dissolved her company, and Kevin made an immediate move into coordinating Film Productions for some of the major Hollywood studios.   With a strong work ethic, he continued to hammer his name into stone in the film industry working with some highly well known talent, producers, and directors while adding to a mounting list of production credits.

Some of his other film work credits includes Antonio Bandera’s directorial debut of, Crazy in Alabama, Via Rosa’s Original Sin with Angelina Jolie and Antonio Banderas, The Perfect Storm with George Clooney and Mark Wahlberg, Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, and Dr. Dolittle 2 with Eddie Murphy. He subsequently reunited with Pfeiffer’s ex-producing partner, Kate Guinzburg, at her short-lived company with veteran Producer, Martin Bregman (Scarface, Serpico), to assist in bringing the Julia Stiles and Shirley MacLaine film Carolina through development and production.

After  years of working on back to back films, Kevin transitioned into work as an author as he entered his 30’s and beyond.   He started out writing essays about love, dating, relationships, and sex before primarily becoming a spiritual author and teacher.

Tarot Card Meanings. The Book by Kevin Hunter

TAROT CARD MEANINGS
available in paperback and e-book
wherever books are sold

Tarot Card Meanings is an encyclopedia reference guide that takes the Tarot apprentice reader through each of the 78 Tarot Cards offering the potential general meanings and interpretations that could be applied when conducting a reading. The meanings included can be applied to most anything whether it be spiritual, love, general, or work related questions.

Many novices struggle with reading the Tarot as they want to know what a card can mean in their readings.  They grow stuck staring at three cards side by side and having no idea what it could be telling them.  The Tarot Card Meanings book can assist by pointing you in the general direction of where to look.  It will not give you the ultimate answers and should not be taken verbatim, as that is up to you as the reader to come to that conclusion. The more you practice, read, and study the Tarot, then the better you become.

Tarot Card Meanings avoids diving into the Tarot history, or card spreads and symbolism, but instead focuses solely on the potential meaning of a card in a general, love, or work reading.  This gives you a structure to jump off of, but it is up to you to take that energy and add the additional layers to your reading, while trusting your higher self, intuition, instincts and Spirit team’s guidance and messages.  Anything included in the Tarot Card Meanings book is an overview and not intended to be gospel.  It is merely one suggested version of the potential meanings of each of the 78 Tarot cards in a reading.  It may assist the novice that is having trouble interpreting cards for themselves.  NOTE:  The Tarot Card Meanings book does not include a Tarot deck.
