9 of Swords

The Nine of Swords is a card in the Minor Arcana of the Tarot, but it is one of the most significant cards in the whole deck of 78 cards in the Tarot.

The Nine of Swords is a card in the Minor Arcana of the Tarot, but it is one of the most significant cards in the whole deck of 78 cards in the Tarot.

This card is essentially about our unconscious fears, worries and anxieties. On the card we see a woman sitting up in bed, obviously worried and distressed, and mounted on the wall behind her are nine swords. Swords is a suit in the Tarot which symbolizes choices, decisions and actions. Nine in terms of mysticism and magic symbolizes truth, so we can infer that the woman is anxious or worried about choices, decisions and actions, probably in the past.

Its a significant card because we all sleep, and our bed is one of the most important pieces of furniture in our home. Our bed is supposed to be a place of comfort, asylum, somewhere where we are meant to feel good about ourselves, our lives and what’s happening in our lives. Therefore this is a card which relates to the nature and quality of our lives.

How well we are sleeping is the best possible indicator and one which is most reliable about the nature and quality of our life experiences.

Fundamentally the nature and quality of your life boils down to just two things. The first is how you feel about life generally.

The second is what is going through your mind in the present moment. The answers to both these questions should give you and anyone else an insight into the nature and quality of your life.

These are also the only two things you need to be prepared to talk about at the twice monthly dream weaving meetings and workshops which take place at the ROSE organized by the Qultura community.
