Tarot Wands 9
Nine of Wands

Overall meaning
Nine of Wands represent that you are almost there, you are close to success. Recent events have left you drained of energy and feeling like you can’t go on, but you’re so close to getting what you want! You just have to gather the last of your strength and push forward and you will succeed.

Nine of Wands shows a man standing holding a cane with both hands. He wears a bandage around his head and looks back, uncertainly and mistrustfully, towards where the other eight canes stand.

The card symbolizes energy that is held back because one does not know how to use it positively or constructively. It symbolizes a situation where the feeling of conflict has taken over. But you have strength, even if you don’t realize it, and even if you have to face adversity.

The Nine of Wands suggests that you need to be made aware of your hidden or unconscious reserve of strength. You are prepared to face difficulties on your way. You’ve fought before and you’re ready again if the situation calls for it. You have boundless strength, courage and endurance enough to overcome them.

The card stands for strength and indicates that both your conscious and unconscious forces are ready to help you. You must use your determination to meet the challenges that lie ahead. As the unconscious becomes conscious, anxiety can arise to relive unfinished situations. But strength can also arise as you discover the beginnings of an unfolding of previously unconscious inner strengths.

Other words that characterize the Nine Wands are: battle-ready, pent-up energy, dormant powers, untapped potential, self-awareness, exertions, blockages, destructive energy and instability. Drained of energy, almost there, close to success, courage, tenacity, stamina, backbone, gather your strength, last stand, endure.

The tarot card is associated with number 9, which means that you must pay attention to this number in relation to the challenge you are asking the tarot about. This is often expressed in the way that in the next nine days | weeks | months | years it will be advantageous for you to manifest your visions or clarify some important issues.

Consciousness (The Sun) and hidden forces (The Moon in Sagittarius). There is an opportunity to gain awareness (The Sun) of your hidden powers (The Moon).

I rediscover and relive my powers. A strength resides within me. My inner power is growing. I possess unimaginable powers and possibilities. I have confidence in my own strength.
