Nine of Wands

Tarot Card by Card: Nine of Wands - Tarot Card Meanings

Keywords: defense, preparation, completion, paranoia, protection, boundaries, distrust

General meaning:  You have learned a big-time lesson and although you are moving on, what is the takeaway from that experience?  Have you done the work to the wound or did you just slap a bandaid on it?  It’s time to move on and make a mental note: don’t do that again.  Lessons learned.  School of hard knocks.  Trust issues.  If you feel someone is trying to salt your game, don’t ignore the vibe.  Watch your back.

Reversed: Drop your defenses and stop being a suspicious Aloysius.  If you keep acting like you don’t trust the Universe, you cannot expect results.  The Nine of Wands reversed says: have faith.  Let down your guard.  Isolation ends.  Reopening an old psychic wound.  Don’t be acting so sketch.  Mean muggin’. Throwing shade.  Shifty business.

Affirmation:  I am safe.

Theme song:  “Paranoid” by Black Sabbath

Journaling prompt:  What does it mean to have “boundaries”?  What boundaries do you have in place?  How do you protect your energy?  Get out that journal and write, man.


When you surrounded by haters
That be throwing shade
You gotta arm yourself
Or you gotta fade
You learned it once
Why learn it twice?
Protect yo’ neck
Stop actin’ nice
Front out those fakes
With their lame bitch moves
Don’t be no sucka
Don’t be no fool
The one left standing
Will surely dominate
While the others be left
With nothing but playa hate.
Fo shizzle!
