Card Reading

The Nine of Wands

If you have received the Nine of Wands in your reading you will be receiving a strength of vision that you never thought was possible in the past.

This vision is going to be equally balanced with emotions, spirit and physical health. You are making the right choices for yourself. You have gained much knowledge from what you have been through and now you must establish a certain level of mastery. As a part of this mastery over your reality, you must hear what others have to say so that you can gain multiple perspectives which will help you make better decisions, choose better roads to cross and will teach you a tremendous amount about yourself.

In the Rider Waite Deck, we see again, the fellow that has been fighting all along the Suit of Wands. His wounded head indicates that he has been through a struggle in order to protect what he loves and even though he is tired he is prepared to fight some more. He is protecting a boundary made of the previous 8 wands. This means that right now you are in an intermission as far as the struggles you have been pursuing to get through to your initiatory phase, so you must regain your strength after resting and regrouping and speaking to others about what you should do. There are those in your life right now that have excellent advice to offer you. You must not be stubborn in this moment because you will benefit greatly from the help should you choose to accept it. The 9 of Wands says that you should accept as much help from genuinely helpful people as is possible. Remember this is a card of fire, but consider this moment as a time to gather more fuel so that you can burn brighter than ever.

The Nine of Wands is a card of self respect. The man depicted in the card is not afraid of losing, instead he has enough faith in himself and in his cause that he is willing to die for it. Obviously the card does not suggest that you go the lengths of having to die for a cause, but in this case, the willingness to be uncompromisable about your values is an important aspect of developing a strong sense of self. In this fiery phase a sense of self is extremely important to the overall success of your battle. If you are going through a hard time right now where you feel that you can’t go on, please know that the Nine of Wands is saying that you have already come far, that you have done well and you only have a little bit farther to go.

One of the best ways to prepare and win a battle is to give your body a chance to develop its muscles. In this you should consider your emotions, your physical state and your spirituality all separate bodies whose muscles need to be tones and strengthened. You have a huge amount of charm and attractiveness to both sexes, so you won’t have to worry about or fear not getting attention, but you need to focus on yourself, on your personal journey and on the work that you have yet to do.

The Nine of Wands in Love In love, the Nine of Wands portrays you as someone who is very attractive to both sexes. Anyone who has fought as hard as you have, will have a certain kind of ‘extra’ physique about them that will send out signals to other people letting them know that you have a strong and good character. The light that you radiate illuminates all that is dark around you, and will attract many people, somewhat like a moth to a flame. However, for you, the love that you must illuminate needs to encompass not only yourself and those that love you, but you must also challenge yourself as part of your learning to love those that you find thorny to deal with. Embrace the people who are making your life difficult. You will have no problems in love at this time, but right now you must focus your attentions on bettering your circumstances so that you are ready for the final phase.

The Nine of Wands in Health When the Nine of Wands appears in your spread regarding health there is going to be some level of anxiety and worry that you are going to have to push through. There is heaviness and a fear of losing grip on what you possess in your life. Whether that is love, possessions, money, or relationships, the Nine of Wands gives you hope because it is lending you the strength that it has and it is orbiting all around you to help you.

The Nine of Wands in Work and Wealth Now is the time to protect the work that you have started and create a savings from it. When it comes to money and abundance, now is not the time to be frivolous. You are protecting yourself by buying insurance and making sure that if anything should happen that could create a financial bump that you are prepared to handle it. But you should not spend randomly. You must take care of what you have now so that you will have later when life gets rocky again. On the card shows a person that has been hurt in the past at work, maybe corporate bullying. This card can imply putting up a barrier and protecting yourself. In some instances, it can also suggest being paranoid. You need to have faith and keep on going. The person in the card I would say represents yourself carrying a burden, he can build a fire with those wands and fight his position, but he is wounded. There is a focus that you can overcome obstacles when this card is drawn in a work position, you may be hiding under a psychological wall and in the past suffered pain at work. This card also indicates that a goal is out of reach and this is a good outcome at work. The number nine is Eremita which represents knowledge and wisdom at work. The card also focuses on patience, sometimes doing nothing is defensive in itself. The card is also about moving when the time is right, to get to the end goal. Sometimes doing nothing or delaying in life is better than taking action at the wrong time.


Reversed Meaning - Nine of Wands  If you have received the Nine of Wands in the reversed position in your reading this means that you are going through a phase of feeling defeated because something has happened to make you feel that your defenses, the ones that you worked very hard on, have failed. You have burdened yourself with problems that are bigger then you can handle and you feel weak and incapable of holding them back. Why are you giving away your personal responsibility? The Nine of Wands exemplifies that you are in control of your life and your reality; therefore, nothing is happening to you that is out of your control. Right now you just feel like it is because it is easier than admitting that you need to start over again. It is challenging to go through this because you have already risked so much. But the Nine of Wands assists you in being fearless. You must push yourself to continue the fight or you will lose to it.

The King of Cups

The King of Cups is like the King of Cool.

He is a great card in a reading when you are seeking ways to express yourself emotionally or having to accept aspects (or people) in your life that you would rather not. With the King of Cups in your reading you can know that while there may be a lot going on in your life and you are likely to find that not everything is going you way… what will be will be. Pay special attention in your life to the areas that are demanding a lot of attention from you. Focus on those aspects and think about the ways in which you can work smart rather than working hard. The energy from the King of Cups is really great at helping you to keep your composure, maintain balance in your life, and when you have a need for patience.

The King of Cups sits upon his throne and he knows that he is where he is by his own works. Like other Kings in the deck, he is at a place where he has mastered his own element. The element of water covers all things emotional and spiritual. The King of Cups is the guy you turn to when you need problem-solving skills and works well under pressure. The focus in your life right now should not be what you can do, but rather what do you feel.

Having this card show up in your reading can show that there are aspects of your life where you need to weight out the pros and cons of the situation. Before you take a leap forward you want to really listen to your intuitions and only then, act accordingly. Even if you feel that things are mellow right now, be prepared for a challenge headed your way that will throw you off balance. You have a warning now and you should be able to deal with the challenge head on as long as you maintain your composure and understand that no matter how big the challenge is, you are strong and smart enough to overcome it. There is no need to feel overwhelmed; everything is as it should be. Seek your inner Yoda. The card can also represent a male that is older than you. He will likely be bald or have graying hair. This person usually comes to you in the form of a wise counsel or something that you can trust has your best interest at heart. Keep the voice of this person close to you.

The King of Cups in Love The King of Cups in love is an excellent card as it shows all good things regarding emotional spirituality. If in a relationship, it often represents the peak time in a relationship where you and your partner are working together, bickering is to a minimal, and things seem to be going your way. Often it will indicate getting fulfillment from your partner and being taken care of in emotional aspects. Often this card will come up when you need a shoulder to lean on while dealing with a stressful period. This card shows you that there is someone around you that can empathize or understand. It’s okay to open up emotionally at this time. In fact, you likely need to. As a warning card, the King of Wands can represent the need to do so.

When looking for love the King of Cups card can be descriptive in showing the qualities of someone coming your way in a relationship. It is a male card; however it doesn’t mean that if you are a man that another man is coming. Rather, in that situation it will refer to the aspects of yourself that you need to focus on. If you are a woman looking though it will indicate a water sign – Cancer, Pisces, or Scorpio that is coming to your life or already around you now. This person is likely older than you, but not always. It’s less about age and more about maturity. This will usually be a person that has been tried emotionally and sometimes he can come off as cool or even a bit shy. He is a person secure in his own emotions and isn’t likely to be flashy or outgoing per say. The King of Cups is a person who typically has a great sense of humor and can be a little silly once you get to know him.

The King of Cups in Health A good sign for health, the King of Cups indicates that there is a good mindset around you regarding health. Emotionally there is a positive attitude regarding health and therefore even ailments or physical illness is usually on its way up. It’s a great sign also for healing after illness or surgery. There is hope when this card is present.

The King of Cups in Work and Wealth  The King of Wands is less concerned with work and wealth than the King of other suits. When he shows up in your reading it can be an indication that you are not focusing on your finances properly or that you should stop focusing on them too much. Often when the King of Cups comes up in a financial reading it indicates that you aren’t in a good place to be dealing with your finances as you can be too idealistic, hopeful, or immature with your funds right now.

At the work place the King of Cups gets along great with co-workers and shines in areas like networking and grievances. He is astute at dealing with adversity and can bring a level head to a heated situation. It’s likely that there is a fire that needs to be put out and the way to do this is to have direction that is blameless and positive. Whatever is done is done and there is no going back and getting a do-over in this situation. Rather the King of Cups tells you to focus on moving forward, rather than focusing on the past.

Reversed King of Cups in a reading The King of Cups reversed is a negative aspect of one being too emotional. While it can represent a person who is normally calm and collected being over emotional, it usually is worse than that. The negative representations of the reversed position are being irritable, moody, sullen, or extremely withdrawn. Just like the King of Cups is fully in control of his emotions, the reversed position is just the opposite. It is usually a sign that you need to seek balance emotionally and spiritually and a sign that you are overreacting to a situation or person in your life. You must find your inner quiet and reign in your emotions to get what you want out of a situation.
