Nine of Wands Symbolism in Raider Waite Tarot Deck

Nine of Wands in Raider Waite Tarot Deck depict a figure, leaning on its stick, stands as if in anticipation of the enemy. Behind her, eight rods arranged in a specific order stick out like a stockade.

Nine Wands means stubbornness, resistance to any situation or event, from which we expect only trouble. At the same time, she says that there is no threat, but in fact there is, and there are only our memories of past troubles, whence our present “defensive” state. She personifies the state of mind, which in fairy tales is called the “cold heart”. Translated into everyday language, this means that we bristle with all the needles and resist any changes, although we realize that they can be very important for our further development. Although sometimes it can mean something directly opposite – if, for example, we took a decisive step and closed all the doors behind us that could lead to a retreat. In this case, this card has a positive value, but it also indicates one mistake we made: we shamefully fled from responsibility for our past out of fear that it could overtake us. In order to free yourself from it, you need to finally let go of your past, turn it into the foundation of our further transformations, instead of feeling like a hostage to it.

Nine of Wands shows Strength

Nine of Wands represents Second decade of Sagittarius from December 2 to 10.

the sign of Pisces, the planets Jupiter and Neptune, the Twelfth House.
The second decade of Sagittarius symbolizes the expansion of consciousness, its dominance over the world and expansion into all spheres of life. Its ruler is traditionally considered the moon. The energy here is transformed into a high receptivity of ideas and feelings and an intuitive understanding of a holistic picture of the world, which contributes to building a solid worldview.

Reliance on past traditions is a source of spiritual wealth and practical knowledge of the present. Sagittarius does not rely on himself, but on what is hidden behind him: on his worldview and the objective ideals of society. He tends to idealize the experience of the past. This is the most romantic decade of the Zodiac, establishing a living connection with the past and drawing spirituality from the depths of centuries. It is driven by a desire for independence, a love of travel and other cultures, as well as a tendency to take responsibility for what is happening, sometimes more than a person can bear. Excessive expansion leads to the dispersal of personality (which can give Jupiter in conjunction with the moon). And in order not to give empty promises, in vain encouraging others, it is important to control the completeness of each stage of activity according to the principle: “Finished, walk boldly!”.

NINE OF WANDS is a dormant mind that keeps track of that. so that our will does not weaken. In the famous prayer, where the Lord is asked for strength to change what they can change; humility to accept that which they cannot change; and wisdom always distinguish one from the other. NINE STAFF – the third part: the mind evaluates, monitors. It is like constant self-control – a person does not allow himself to dissolve – vigilance, tested in business, awareness of actions.

Tip – you are tired, your attention is dull.
