II. Meaning of the Nine of Swords Witches Tarot
On the Nine of Swords Witches Tarot, we can see a woman in a nightgown lying dramatically in her room at night. She crosses her arms over her forehead, seemingly unconscious from emotional or physical exhaustion. She is clearly overpowered. Her hand drops weakly to the floor. Her long hair falls over her pillow and exposes the bite mark on her neck which is a two-holed wound like a vampire bite. The last moon of the month illuminates the gothic window frame, while the nine swords are lined up on the wall like the fence that obstructs the view out the window.
The golden primrose flowers embroidered on the bedspread symbolize sadness. The woman will probably reach for the hilt of the bottom sword. Maybe finally she is ready to defend herself to be free and to end this tragedy. If not, maybe she needs to feel sorry for herself a little more.
III. Message of the Nine of Swords Witches Tarot
This is the “tragedy queen” card. When appearing in a Tarot spread, it symbolizes a person who is always in crisis or causes tragedy in group activities or social situations. They may be an emotional or psychic vampire or a voluntary victim of similar attacks. Since this is the ninth card of the Swords suit, it also shows that you are nearing the end of the matter. Things have come to a head and should begin to get in the way as long as you don’t give in to tragedy. Decide which sword you will pick up, be proactive, and protect yourself and your energy. In addition, this card can represent the retribution of wrong judgment or the backlash from a magical act. It is a description of the malicious magic that strikes its owner for the third time.
The image of the character in the Nine of Swords Witches Tarot lying up in bed suggests many meanings. Because midnight is the time when our sorrows and regrets come in the strongest. The stillness of the night washes away the distractions of the day, leaving us feeling alone with our own thoughts. The Nine of Swords represents the unhappiness that is invading our souls at any time.
Unlike the pain of the Three of Swords which seems to come from nowhere, the Nine of Swords Witches Tarot represents the pain we create within ourselves. What pain do we inflict upon ourselves when fear and doubt overwhelm us. Anxiety is perhaps the most common. Have you done enough of what needs to be done? Will everything go well? What will you do?
Guilt is another source of pain. When we have done something that we feel is wrong or hurt, or fail to do something we thought we would be able to do, disappointment can become very realistic. It sucks when nothing can lessen the guilt or dispel it. In the end, there is only suffering. Sometimes, life’s sufferings really take over us and all we feel like doing is crying.
It is clear that the Nine of Swords Witches Tarot is not a card that brings joy, but at the same time, it is not always a reminder of great disappointment. Usually, the card is just a sign of the appearance of some unhappy element or some obstacle or a vulnerable point in your life. This card is usually a warning from your Inner that the path you are about to go may be full of difficulties. If you understand the Nine of Swords in the spirit of a warning sign, you also use the card in a constructive spirit. Consider your situation carefully to make sure you are making the best choices. Even a small change can make a big difference.
IV. The Nine of Swords Witches in a Tarot spread
The Nine of Swords Witches Tarot often indicates despair, anxiety, and fear. This fear does not necessarily come from action from someone outside or a particular person but has more to do with how you interpret the action. When you first look at the card, you can think of anxiety, despair, feelings of helplessness, or sleepless nights. The Nine of Swords card represents feelings of grief as well as gloomy days that can come upon us again and again. However, the Nine of Swords does not always indicate pain and misery. Sometimes it points to an element of your sadness, such as a vulnerable point in your life. The Nine of Swords is usually a card that implies worries and fears. Take a close look at the things that are worrying you. Don’t blame people or circumstances for the concerns you are feeling. Pay attention to deep breathing, this will help you feel calmer.
You will need to guard against feelings of insecurity. If you are feeling insecure, consider whether the feeling is coming from yourself or other things or people in your life who are contributing to this anxiety. If so, see if something can be changed in the relationship to fix this situation. The current time period can be problematic because it makes others feel like their life is supposed to be “better” than it actually is. Try to be content and enjoy the simple things that life is giving you. Beauty always emerges from the most ordinary things.
When the Nine of Swords Witches Tarot and the Hermit or the Sun appear at the same time, it indicates an increased feeling of loneliness when you are in trouble. When accompanied by the Fool, they indicate that your midnight anxiety is fictitious, and in fact, everything is going in order. The Wheel of the Year confirms that the adversity you are facing is short-term and that you will soon see some form of success coming.
In terms of work, worrying about work will not solve anything. Focus on what you can control and try to remove anxiety from your mind. If you are in the job search phase, think positively and don’t hesitate to ask for help in finding it. The next person you talk to will likely be someone who knows of a suitable job opportunity for you.
In terms of love, something is making you feel insecure about your current relationship. Don’t ignore that feeling. If you are feeling like there is something unhealthy about your relationship, chances are you are right. If you suspect that something is being hidden, the best way is to ask your lover about the suspicion. If you have recently met someone new that you are interested in, be careful not to get too carried away and be overwhelmed by the belief that everything is as good as it seems. Trust always takes time to build. Don’t be too hasty.
In terms of finances, you may be in a situation where you have to cut spending on one to cover the cost of another. If so, slow down and think carefully about what is going on in your financial situation. Are you over-exercising yourself? None of us are alone. Look for the resources and help available to you if you need them and find them helpful. Don’t take advantage of games of chance or take risks with get-rich-quick schemes. Real miracles will happen for those who work hard to get. If you feel doubtful before investing, ask someone experienced you know for their advice.
In terms of health, this is the time to be very careful about using stimulants or any kind of addiction. It may look like it is a pleasant way to “treat” yourself, but it is not. What you need to do is just deal with what is bothering you. Stress can be a big problem. Consider ways to reduce risk factors and deal with stress. If all efforts fail, think about changing your lifestyle and the things you are spending money on. Sometimes the stress actually comes from money or life problems in more forms than it does from small concerns like being robbed.
In terms of spirituality, when the Nine of Swords Witches Tarot appears, this is a clear sign that you must slow down on pushing your brain and reduce stress levels. If you can meditate then you will see a lot of benefits. If you have no idea how to get started, you can consider reading a book and attending a retreat class. Reading about the philosophical concepts of the mind may help at the time.
The reversed Nine of Swords Witches Tarot can show that you are worried about something and perhaps for a good reason. The key is to not let your worries get out of hand and do what is necessary that you can control. Remember that feelings of anxiety are short-term, rarely permanent. Especially when it comes to people you just met, the reversed Nine of Swords is a very clear message reminding you to be careful. These newcomers may not be what you think. Be careful and have a reasonable suspicion when entering into anything related to business. Think and slow down.
