In general, the majority of the Wands suits are basically positive cards, however as you move upward to the highest cards in the suit, more difficult situations might be indicated. This is where the Nine of Wands usually shows up. When this card appears, the first thing it is telling you to do is take a deep breath, calm down and know that everything will turn out ok. Don’t let the things you are worried about overwhelm you.

Career, Love, Money, Health, Spirituality

Career: If things have been a little intense at work, the best approach is to not contribute to the drama; think before you speak and try to stay as calm as possible. Be very clear about things you can control and things you cannot. What you can’t control, then start making preparations. When this card appears, if there are signs your job may be eliminated, the answer could be a yes. Don’t wait for the trouble to catch up with you, be pro-active and start looking for a better position of your choice.

Love and Romance: In the arena of love, the Nine of Wands offers the advice to remember that no relationship can hold up under constant scrutiny. Try to give your partner some breathing space with trust and respect. Know that you are their prize! If you are single, keep in mind that timing is everything and right now may not be the time for that special relationship. While you are waiting for Prince Charming to show up in your life, it might be a good time to address some of your own emotional fears in preparation for that new relationship. Remember, to attract a loving, self-contained and grounded partner, you must be one yourself.

Money: Worrying over your finances will not change anything. Try to keep positive and methodically go through your potential courses of action to increase your income. New job, extra job, budgeting? The Nine of Cups reminds you to have the courage to try new things to make money; taking small steps which could lead to a whole new career and more income.

Health: Worry, stress, and anxiety is very likely to be affecting your life at the moment. Be sure to counterbalance that stress by laying off the junk food, lots of water intake and getting enough sleep. Learn how to take deeper breaths when stress starts getting the best of you, meditation is also useful. Write down things that you are grateful for and surround yourself with positive people, remembering that you want uplifting energy in your body, not the heavy energy of stress and negativity.

Spirituality: The Nine of Wands suggests you put a little more discipline in your spiritual goals. Read inspirational books, meditate a little more, find a spiritual support group to call yourself to higher levels of spiritual study and commitment. That spiritual enlightenment is within you to get where you want to be.

Susan’s Verdict

The Nine of Wands is a tough one, pushing you to put your big girl/or boy pants on, roll up your sleeves, ask for Divine help and take whatever life’s challenge is being thrown at you with faith, hope and a knowing that a more positive future outcome is just around the corner.
