Nine King of Wands Zodiac sign:
The Zodiac sign associated with Nine of Wands is Sagittarius.
  • Saturn / Venus as protectors and patrons.
  • 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 of Wands – 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.
