Nine of Wands, Keep Going, Don't Give Up!
Hi all and welcome to Spirit's blog. Today is the day of the week in which I draw a card and use it's guidance for the remainder of the week. This week I am using "Witches Tarot" by Ellen Dugan and Mark Evans. This is a beautiful re engineering of the 78 card Rider-Waite-Smith deck. In this post I will be examining the colors in the card, the numeric symbolism, planetary influence, and overall meaning. The tarot card drawn this week is... The Nine of Wands.
Colors in The Nine of Wands
The most notable colors in The Nine of Wands are red, yellow, brown and blue. The color red is associated with the planet Mars. Martian energy is a powerful, fast, driven, passionate energy. Mars the planet rules our willpower, actions, reaction to danger, and masculinity. Yellow is the color associated with the Sun. The Sun has a positive, fun, happy, energy. The Sun rules over a person's happiness, joy, and success. When I see brown in a card I generally read it as black. So therefore black in this card is representative of Saturn. Saturn has an energy that is grounding, restrictive but for own good, and karmic. The final color blue, is indicative of the planet Jupiter. Jupiter has an expansive energy, it's all encompassing, and opportunistic. Jupiter rules our leadership qualities, business ethics, personal growth, and personal power.
Number Nine in Numerology
In Numerology the number 9 refers to completion. Nine has a vibration of strength, compassion, generosity and friendliness. People with a nine life path number are the ones who give so much of themselves to others, they fail to keep for themselves. These people are literally "The Giver".
Element of The Suit of Wands
Wands are compared with the element of fire. Fire influences our drive, ambitions, desires, self actualization, goals and careers. The element of fire has an energy of enthusiasm, spontaneity, intensity, creativity and independence. This is the energy of bravery and stamina.
Nine of Wands Interpretation
The meaning of The Nine of Wands is determination, stamina, courage, strength, and protection. This is the card that says "Keep Going", never give up. It is an inspiring card, it tells you to always be prepared. At this point you are wondering "What about me?". Here is a breakdown of The Nine of Wands' advice for each zodiac sign.
Nine of Wands for Aries
You may have a tendency to quit before something is finished. A real "I'm going to quit while I'm ahead" attitude. Plus a lack of patience. This week, just keep going. Rome was not built in a day.
Nine of Wands for Taurus
As a Taurus you may not care for change. You may actually do anything to avoid it. Keep going, change is okay, and sometimes needed. Use that Taurean patience to help you along the way.
Nine of Wands for Gemini
Your natural indecisiveness may be in the way dear Gemini. After making a decision stick to it. Keep going in accordance to your decision and don't look back.
Nine of Wands for Cancer
Don't let your feelings of insecurity hold you back from doing things. Keep fighting through your experiences. You can do it.
Nine of Wands for Leo
For the social sign of Leo, it's not an issue to keep going, as long as others are watching. But when you are alone, you need to keep going, keep growing and learning as well.
Nine of Wands for Virgo
For these people with a strong Virgo, I would say, keep going, but not at a speed that allows no down time. Sometimes things don't go according to plan, accept it and move on, do not be hard on yourself and over analyze it.
Nine of Wands for Libra
For the fair brained natives of this sign. Take this as a message that you are doing the right thing. Keep going no matter how much you may not think. Some of the most difficult things in life are the right thing to do.
Nine of Wands for Scorpio
For this group of natives, this seems more like a take a chance card. Put yourself out there, trust someone. Vulnerability is only a weakness if you don't learn from it, if you learn from it, it is a lesson.
Nine of Wands for Sagittarius
For the wandering Sags out there. This card could mean give something or someone a chance. Don't be so quick to move on.
Nine of Wands for Capricorn
It is your tendency to expect the worst in every situation. This means keep going, don't let your expectations limit you.
Nine of Wands for Aquarius
The Aquarians out there may have an urge to flee. A situation may be too emotionally involved for you. Keep going, every thing worth doing or having is on the other side of fear.
Nine of Wands for Pisces
For these watery signs, keep focused. Stay in the moment, keep the flow of life going. This may not be the time to wander off into the other world that you find peace in.
Now that I have interpreted the card and the best way for each zodiac sign to use it's message. I am going to look at my own way to keep going. As an Aries sun, basically I shouldn't quit, keep reaching everyone. Blessed be.
