Deck : The Sirian Starseed Tarot
Card: Nine of Orbs /Nine of Swords
Before I get into what I see and feel with this card, let me tell you that my guides are speaking to my soul in this picture.
The last month or so my body has been calling me to find nature, to find a spot in the woods and sit with them and Mother. There is something that I need to know within in nature and I can feel myself in this card when I look at this card. I know that we have been in the start of a Mercury Retrograde in Pieces no less , so this here makes sense to me.
When I see the 9 of Swords It tends to remind me of creating cycles of anxiety, fears and stress. This is the, "telling yourself stories" card that builds and builds creating a nonstop cycle of unneeded stress. The Orbs hovering over the woman in this depiction reminds me of not wanting to face your fears but just sit in them and let them grow.
Do your thoughts really carry truth? Can you predict the future? NO.
The 9 of Orbs/Swords does not have to be a scary card. You can think of this as a courage card, the card that says you have spent way to much energy on shit you have no control over to now it is time to face that shit and step into your power.
I have read in a few places that the number 9 is a sign of compassion, empathy and to make time for yourself. i am sure it may mean a bunch of other things but the download I am getting is to not be hard on yourself, acknowledge how you feel but now is the time to face it. Each orb behind this woman, each sword on the wall in the tarot card can be grabbed by the person in the card and faced dead on. Take one by one until you see no more Orbs/Swords lingering over your head and all you see is light. Leave the unwanted energies of those orbs there on the floor and follow the path to the healing light.
