9 of Swords

9 of Swords

Meaning

When the 9 of Swords appears in your day, the message is, not everything can be rosy all the time. This card is an ominous looking card, but it appears more ominous than it actually is. Some inner turmoil and torment is likely today with this card, but know that you are alone in this turmoil, and likely, the problem isn't as bad as it seems. If something is keeping you up at night with this stress or this pain, it may be time to look for solutions to ease this torment. This card can sometimes be a warning signal as well that too much stress is a bad thing, as this card often suggests inner turmoil that could be red flags before serious mental health situations arise.

Symbolism

The ominous symbolism in this card is clear. There is no escaping the pain and sorrow that arrive with the 9 of swords. While it is easy to be fearful when we see this card, know that the 9 of Swords represents internal struggles, and not challenges that happen to you that create pain and loss. The 9 of Swords shows a man sobbing in bed, with 9 swords hung on the wall beside him. The struggle is his alone. He is wracked with nightmares, or the loss of an individual in his life, or anxiety over something that he has done. This card also suggests depression, and internal torment. If this card appears in your day, some anxiety may be coming with it. Breathe in, breathe out, nothing lasts forever.
