Nine of Wands
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.
