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.

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.

Three of Wands. Tarot Lesson Basics.

No automatic alt text available.Tarot Card Meaning Lesson. Three of Wands in a reading is the visionary and having clairvoyant foresight into what’s coming up ahead. It can indicate travel, movement, or exploring areas of interest that you have yet to investigate. When you take a moment to step back and see what’s coming up ahead, then you’re able to act efficiently.

Just like in this image, the Three of Wands shows someone’s ship is coming in. What you’ve been on the lookout for is on its way if it’s not yet present already. If you’ve been struggling with a work related endeavor, this card is a reminder to keep going as the rewards are on the horizon. There will be a positive pay off in the end. This is the same for a love readings with someone who is single. The Three of Wands says this person is on its way and will show up soon. You’re at a place where you’re ready and it’s about to happen.

In the Two of Wands card, the man in the image was holding a world globe in his hands and looking out into the horizon with nothing there yet, but with the Three of Wands he’s looking out into the horizon and sees ships coming in. The Three of Wands is a welcome relief card that your efforts have not gone unnoticed and positive blessings are heading towards you. It can be compensation for the idea you originally put into action.

The Three of Wands is looking ahead to the future, whether that is a psychic premonition or a business CEO taking the long view on a work related issue. This card can be attributed to all of the visionaries of the world who opened doors for others. They are the ones setting the example and leading.

The message in this card is also about going the distance whether it be career or relationships. This is taking it a step higher than where ones current position is. Perhaps a promotion, a stronger commitment to a job, or a new leadership role at work. This can also be about planning ahead. Implementing steps that lead you to the goal you desire.

This is also one of the travel cards so in love it can be that you come across a potential love partner while vacationing. Vacationing can just be a weekend getaway not too far from where you live. It can be taking additional vacation days off from work just to have some time off where you are out and about when you bump into this potential.

If you’re already in a relationship, this can show a strong passionate partnership that works together on everything. This can also reveal a connection that is about to move to a higher level. There will be a stronger bonding moment that deepens the connection.

The Ace of Wands was the idea, the Two of Wands was putting that idea into action, and the Three of Wands is witnessing the beginning of the rewards filtering in from that action. Three of Wands typically reveals success on the horizon surrounding whatever the question was. Don’t react to anything, but allow circumstances to evolve naturally.

How does he/she feel about me? What can you tell me about him/her?

Image may contain: indoor

How does he/she feel about me? What can you tell me about him/her? These are some of the questions I answer in my long awaited Tarot Card Meaning book that will be out this December. The irony is that I don’t personally require use of any deck, including the Tarot, but it is fun to play with and use on occasion.

My soul is the core instrument I use that is a clear enough conduit that it’s all I need before anything else.  I’ve never followed the norm or anyone else’s formula, but rather throw cards down like a poker player in a fury. The instant message pops up a second after the card has hit the table.  I’m a Wise One who doesn’t follow anyone else’s set pattern or rules, therefore I’ve never used a Tarot spread.

Those who have been super close to me for eons have all pointed out over the decades that they can tell when it’s me communicating with them, or when it’s a being from above coming through.  They’ve pointed out a distinctly noticeable shift in the language and information that comes out that it’s changing within a matter of seconds. It’s as if they’re having a conversation with six people!

Ace of Wands. Tarot Lesson Basics.

Kevin Hunter's photo.Tarot Card Meaning Lesson. The Ace of Wands in a reading can indicate the start of something full of energy and amazement. This can be a brilliant creative idea or the potential for an intensely passionate relationship. The image in the Ace of Wands typically shows a hand and an arm coming out of the clouds pushing a huge wand into the air. This symbolizes the birth of an idea that could be divinely guided. The leaves and flowers attached to the wand or falling off it symbolize abundance and fruitfulness coming out of this idea as a result of your action.

The Ace of Wands tells someone that an idea is a good one and you should go for it to make it happen by taking action. “Action” is the key word with the Wands suit. Taking action to make something happen.

 

While all of the Aces represent new beginnings surrounding the element of the suit, the Ace of Wands represents putting that new beginning into action. This action can bring about positive blessings or challenges depending on the surrounding cards in a reading.

Ace of Wands gives someone that light bulb moment showcasing a breakthrough. It’s a light shining down on what you need to do next. When an entertainer suddenly gets that brilliant idea to go on a world tour or receives a creative idea for an album, then the Ace of Wands would likely show up in a reading for them. This can be the case for any artist or executive.

The Ace of Wands is present when there is a great idea for a business venture, a book, a project or anything that is brought upon by the imagination or divine guidance. If you’re a writer or artist facing drought or a block, then this card shows up. It’s an exciting indicator that the block is over and awesome innovative ideas are immersing out of you or will be.

The Ace of Wands is a rare hyper exciting energy that you have to nab and take action immediately because it comes just as quickly as it evaporates like all of the Wands/Fire cards. Utilize the immediate enthusiastic energy to your advantage.

Ace of Wands are new beginnings, a seed, or idea that is present, but action will be needed to make it grow and prosper. This is an exceptional card to get surrounding creative projects or career work related endeavors. The Ace of Wands points to a huge influx in energy much like a caffeine jolt of excitement.

Ace of Wands in a relationship love reading can indicate a strong magnetic and passionate attraction between you and the person being asked about. This is also the card of a deep sexual draw and attraction. If it’s with someone from the past, then it can be a rekindling of that passion, a re-igniting of the union, or it’s just telling you that the attraction has never dissolved even if you had broken up or are separated.

Even though the Ace of Wands typically has a positive meaning where love relationships are concerned, it doesn’t necessarily determine whether or not a relationship will go the distance. It’s not saying that a connection will happen. It is simply saying there is an interest on both ends, but one or the both of you will need to put in an effort to propel it forward.

If you’re single and wanting to know the personality traits of an incoming potential, then the Ace of Wands can show someone who is naturally enthusiastic, courageous, exciting, creative, passionate, confident, fiery, and innovative. This is someone with tons of creative ideas and drive.

In love and relationships, this points to an exciting passionate and fiery extroverted combo when in one another’s presence. The Ace of Wands shows that there is great potential because there is a strong physical and magnetic attraction already there.

If you’ve been in a relationship that has been stale for some time, then the Ace of Wands can show a spike of excitement or passion coming into the both of you. It can also be advising you to take the bull by the horns and work with your mate to re-ignite the passion.

Because this is a Minor Arcana, it doesn’t necessarily show a long term connection that sustains passion. This can be an exciting date with someone on a Saturday night, then fizzles out by Sunday and it’s back to the grind.

You can ask about attraction with someone and receivethe Ace of Wands, which is an excellent card to get to show attraction and chemistry. The surrounding cards can determine whether or not it’s a passionate connection that develops into a long term love relationship or if it will dissolve. This would also apply to other areas of your life.

The Ace of Wands is an excellent yes card to questions pertaining to a new career, project, or relationship. There is tons of extroverted fire expression energy with the Ace of Wands, but you need to take action on it.

Minor Arcana. Tarot Lesson Basics.

Kevin Hunter's photo.

Tarot Card Meaning Lesson

We’ve looked at all of the Major Arcana cards in a Tarot deck over the last number of months. The Major Arcana represents long term changes that happen over a longer period of time. Coming up next we will be reviewing the Minor Arcana cards in a Tarot deck starting with the Wands suit. The Minor Arcana represents day to day activities. They typically reveal immediate changes that will happen sooner than later, or that had already taken place.

The Wand suit in the Tarot are action oriented. It’s making moves or taking steps to make things happen. The things that end up happening as a result can be either blessing oriented or challenging.

The Fire/Wands element pushes circumstances forward. It’s all about putting in an effort and what will be a result of that effort. The challenging side to the Fire/Wands suit is when you put too much energy and enthusiasm into something that is either a lost cause or is directionless, therefore it ends up being all over the place. Fire can blaze uncontrollably heating up and burning everything in its wake, but it can also breathe life into something that might have been dormant or dead.

The World. Tarot Lesson Basics.

Kevin Hunter's photo.Tarot Card Meaning Lesson. The World showing up in a reading indicates that an accomplishment has been achieved. One life cycle within a human life has been completed surrounding that area. This can be a book has been finished, you’re graduating some level of school, you’ve just sold your house, or bought a house, you’re up for an award, you’ve successfully completed a tour. The World is saying that everything has come full circle and successful completion has been achieved. Pat yourself on the back and celebrate. There is a sense of closure, completion, or mutual ending of something pertaining to the question asked.

The World can also be personal spiritual growth that’s been achieved. This card is not always practical material success. It can be that you’ve just moved to the next level on your journey and are ready to embark on a new one.

The Fool card is the first card in the Major Arcana that signifies the beginning of a journey, but the World card is the last card in the Major Arcana showing that journey coming to an end. Rewards are indicated when anything is accomplished. Rewards are not necessarily monetary or plaques and awards, but it’s the knowledge gained that is its own reward.

The World in a love relationship reading is a positive card to get especially if it’s in the future position or one of the last cards in the spread of a reading. It shows the relationship coming full circle, growing deeper, or more committed and closer. If you’re single, then the World can indicate that you are coming out of that cycle and are ready for a new love. If you’re asking about someone you have your eye on, then this card can be saying that this person is someone who is fully together, independent, successful and long term relationship oriented.

The World is also the card that indicates travel, so it can be you meet someone significant while travelling or that taking a mini-getaway will help clear your mind of any residual toxins in order to put the chapter you’re currently in to rest. The World is equated to travelling the world, so this is where travel comes in.

Judgement. Tarot Lesson Basics.

Kevin Hunter's photo.

Tarot Card Meaning Lesson. The Judgement card in a reading indicates periods of self-reflection and transformation. It’s about metaphorically dying only to be re-born again stronger. It can be about making sudden decisions to change one’s life and head off in an entirely different, yet positive direction.

The typical image artwork of Judgement shows a large angelic presence presiding over many graves with human beings leaping from it in rejoice. They are usually naked which symbolizes being whole and complete. It’s being open and exposed and unafraid of vulnerability.

The Judgement card usually shows up when someone is at the end of one particular journey or chapter and ready to embark on a new one. For that matter, Judgement can also indicate new beginnings once you let the past go. If it’s the end of a relationship and this card is pulled, then it can be telling you to let the relationship go. It’s time to move onto the next chapter. If the relationship is intended to start up again, it will be looked up as a brand new relationship as if you were with one another for the first time.

The Death card can show an unwanted change or ending in one’s life, but the Judgement card is an ending to something that you decided upon. It is making your peace with it and looking forward to a new chapter with optimism.

Judgement can be an optimistic card where you have put in tons of effort into something, and now blessings will be bestowed in return. The traditional Judgement meaning was intended to depict the Archangel Gabriel firing a trumpet which set off the day of judgement for souls crossing over back home to the other side. The only judging that takes place is the one that the soul places upon themselves during this time of judgment. Your perspective is much clearer when you exit the Earth plane and your mistakes are clear. This prompts you to wish you could do certain things over again. In that sense, the Judgement card can be plain and simple where it’s saying that there is some judging going on. Either you’re judging someone too harshly or they’re judging you.

As for love readings, I’ve received this card repeatedly following the breakup of a relationship for others. While it might indicate a break up, generally it shows up after the break up or while the break up is taking place. It’s a reminder that break ups happen in relationships. It’s just the process of life. You can’t control why someone chooses to leave.

Judgement is an indication that a relationship has ended. It is the closing of one chapter and it is time to pull yourself up and move forward fearlessly into your next chapter. This next chapter is a clean slate that can bring a new love to you. A new love can also be a renewed love with the former flame. It would be as if it is a brand new relationship even if you had previously been together before.

If you’ve been having problems in a current relationship and you feel distance with your partner, then this card can be showing that distance. The partner is at a crossroads evaluating certain things connected to the relationship. This doesn’t mean the relationship is over. It can be something minor where they come back to say they were bothered by something you did or said. It can be an isolated issue that is strong enough to transform the person to some extent or make them judge the relationship.

This is nothing abnormal as all couples have struggles, issues, and disagreements from time to time. Unless there is one part of the couple who is always agreeable to keep the peace. This card can also show a renewal or revival of a past connection. It can be a renewal in oneself. It can be self-reflection and transcendence.

The Sun. Tarot Lesson Basics.

Kevin Hunter's photo.

Tarot Card Meaning Lesson. The Sun in a reading is one of the more positive and optimistic cards to receive. It’s a welcome relief that circumstances are going to be what anyone would dream of.

The previous Moon card indicated secrets untold and living in the darkness, whereas the Sun card brings everything to light. The Sun is having everything cracked open. It is where the truth is revealed. It’s being brilliant, confident, alive, joyful, and accomplished. The Sun indicates positive things heading your way surrounding the question you asked.

Asking about a job you want, or about a relationship, home, career, then this card gives the resounding thumbs up, and it will be even better than you expect it to be. This is also the card of notoriety and fame where career is related.

The Sun can also be about finding enlightenment or being informed of the truth about something. It signifies happy times are on its way and the worst is over.

In a love reading, when asking about what this incoming potential partner is like, the Sun can be saying that this person is a warm, outgoing, sunny kind of person. They walk in a room and those around them are drawn to them as their personality radiates and shines brightly. They are likely popular, accomplished, playful, cheery, and successful. People feel this person’s love when they are focused on you. If you’re single, then this can be saying that the long term partner is coming into your life in a big way. If you’re dating or in a relationship, this card can indicate marriage or a stronger commitment. It can be a celebration or a good times up ahead with this person. This can also be used as the Summer time card for timing questions.

The Sun can also be about prosperity, marriage, home, wealth, achievement, positive well-being, life force, and good health. It’s the card of ultimate freedom and liberation. Even if it’s showing the end of a relationship, the break will feel as if a weight has been lifted.

Where the Moon card indicated something hidden, the Sun shines the spotlight on something big being revealed. What’s revealed may be what you don’t want to hear, but because it’s the Sun card, it will likely be followed by positive news surrounding something great. If a relationship is ending, the card can show there is someone new around the corner or that you’ll be happier out of this connection.

The image in this card typically shows a young child happily riding a horse with sunflowers scattered around. It just doesn’t get any better than that. The symbolism points to a period of good times, an awakening, letting your inner child out, and playfulness. It’s a feeling of profound freedom. Some of the symbolic meanings of the Sunflowers are longevity, adoration, joy, spiritual awakening, and good luck.
