Nine of Wands
Briefly: A time of waiting, of being patient while the crop ripens or the project matures.
Full Meaning: This card has a picture a robust man leaning on a wand with another 8 wands stood up behind him. This is a time of waiting, of being patient while the crop ripens or the project matures. We need to understand that stability arises out of wisdom and patience. Haste and immaturity do not assist our plans at a time like this. We need to develop the sense of endurance and being in it for the long haul. We must persevere and be able to see that nothing of value or no-one of merit arrives prior to the right time. If we can maintain our steadfastness during the period before fruition, then the harvest will reap a healthy profit. It may be time to do things that represent protection, such as battening down the hatches, fixing the fences or the gate or door and ensuring that all is safe within the home. Perhaps we need some other financial protection such as a nest egg, a new savings project or even some insurance of some kind, whether personal or for our belongings. Trust in the old saying that ‘all comes to those who wait’.
Work: Things may be tense at work. Try not to contribute to the tension; think before you speak, be calm and unruffled as possible on the surface, at least. Get clear about the things you can and cannot control and try to give very little “mind-space” to the latter. Do your best with the former, and things will very likely be well. If you’re wondering if your job may be eliminated, unfortunately, when this card appears, the answer can be yes. [omgwtfbbq!!!] Forewarned is forearmed. If that happens, what will you do about it?
