Tarot Reading

The character in The Nine of Wands obviously went through a difficult time: he is bandaged all over and supported by a wand. This soldier has been through many wars. The iconology tells us that when people go through a difficult journey, they can feel tired and hurt. Or even if there are no scars on their bodies, their souls are suffering. Gone is the innocence, the openness of heart, the trust in people that we had, replaced by a kind of self-defence. This is a reminder to be more careful with our affairs, and be vigilant, because harm can happen to us at any time. The soldier in the picture is bruised and battered, yet still does not fall. He stands stubbornly and never gives up. This is what the Nine of Wands is all about. This card tells us to never give up, no matter what we are facing! Even if everyone and everything looks like they are against us, don’t give in, but believe that there is an energy within us all that is strong enough to win.
