Nine of Wands

Nine of Wands

You may find yourself having to rise up and meet a challenge today that uses every last ounce of strength and fortitude you have at your disposal.

The Nine of Wands can represent a “test” from the Universe that comes when you least expect it. It can manifest as a challenge that arises after you’ve given what feels like your ALL and are looking forward to a period of smooth sailing.

This version of the card — from the original Mythic Tarot — shows the last hurdle of Jason’s journey to the Island of Iolkos, where he still has to make passage through the Clashing Rocks.

His destination is visible in the distance, illuminated by Nine flaming Wands and surrounded by perfectly calm waters. But getting there seems next to impossible.

The waves crashing into his ship and storm clouds brewing in his distance make this last leg of his journey all the more perilous. But he has to keep going; it’s too late to turn back.

This is the essence of the Nine of Wands: you may have been frustrated with the lack of progress or worse, come “this close” to completing your journey only to find another roadblock ahead of you.

This is very similar to the frustrations and impediments that abound when you perhaps haven’t made clear plans for what you wish to do. You may need to take a breather, but you’re almost at the finish line and are closer to your goals than you realize. So dust yourself off, get back to work, and push yourself past this final test.
