Nine of Swords


Worrying about the problem makes you think about it day and night.

Tarot Reading

The man sitting on the bed with his face caressed is in agony, the quilt has been dragged to the floor, and nine swords like window panes and ribs are hanging on the wall beside him. People always feel extremely sad and self-blame at night. When some distractions during the day are over, people are always immersed in their own thoughts and tortured to the point that they can’t sleep all night long. The Nine of Swords represent the unhappiness that will happen to people at any time. Unlike the pain represented by the Three of Swords, where it refers to troubles from the outside world, here it represents the torment from inside.


The Nine of Swords is not an exciting card, yet it is not just an omen of grief either. Usually it is just a warning sign of some unpleasant element or trouble to come. It often indicates that the path you are on will not be a smooth one.
