Tarot Card Description & Meanings
Nine of Wands shows an injured warrior, who is holding onto his wand, looking defensive, but ready for any attack. The struggles are in the past and a solution is close at hand. This card shows that strength of character will take you far.
This card represents the unexpected, that there is a lot going on behind the scenes that you may not be aware of. Expect the unexpected.
The best advice to be taken from the Nine of Wands is to open up to trust people and situations again. You may have faced a series of battles and could be feeling a little scarred or defensive as a result. Don't let these wounds define you. That was then and this is now: you do not have to maintain a world view which relates more to a difficult past than to a peaceful future. None of us know what is round the corner so use the strength of character you have earned from your past achievements to help you through this stage of your life and the problems you now face.
