When pulled upright this card is about hope. When you see this card it is about your life and just how many troubling times you have overcome due to your determination and will. Despite how much you’ve already been through there are still some trials left but if you keep hope and approach your problems head on you will be successful. This card can also be about betrayal which has caused you to not trust others. Whatever the betrayal was it probably has happened a number of times and it seems hopeless. This however is not true. If you search deeper you will find that hope and courage. Someone or something may come into your life and change your whole viewpoint on your previous struggles.
When pulled in reverse this card is about not being a risk taker. They struggle making long term goals or commitments as they are afraid their decision is irreversible. They don’t trust others so they are putting barriers up between them and others. There is also a potential fear that they don’t have the resources to face the upcoming challenges which you may be considering running away from or just avoiding. Despite your desire to avoid this challenge you need to confront it. This challenge could be stopping you from growing. This card encourages you to be brave, however do not be careless or make impulsive decisions that will effect you in the future. Lastly, this card is about a mental/personal fear that is crucial to get past overcome so it doesn’t consume you or hold you back.
Considering that this card is about having challenges that require hope and not trusting others, I thought that this would be a good spread. When you do this spread meditate on the nine of wands. While you do this think about the challenges in your life that you could use some hope for. When you’re ready shuffle and pull the cards using your preferred method.
