Nine of Wands Tarot Card Meaning

Written and illustrated by Grace Duong

The traditional Rider Waite depiction of the Nine of Wands card features a man with a bandage over his head, looking back uneasily at the nine rods behind him, and holding a wand in a defensive posture. He holds a wand in defense, prepared for the next attack, maintaining a stance of resilience. There are eight wands behind the figure, and one wand is held in their hand. Nine in Tarot indicates this is the last battle he must face before he reaches the end. The imagery of the Nine of Wands represents themes of resilience, strength, and the need to stand firm in the face of challenges. The bandage on the figure’s head suggests that they have faced previous difficulties, and the defensive posture indicates a cautious readiness for further challenges. In a tarot reading, the Nine of Wands may suggest that the individual has been through a series of challenges and is now in a defensive or cautious mindset. It encourages the person to draw on their inner strength, perseverance, and resilience to face any remaining obstacles. The card symbolizes the ability to endure and persist even when feeling fatigued or battle-weary.

In the Mystic Monday’s Tarot deck, Nine of Wands card is depicted as a woman with her back turned to the viewer, holding a wand behind her back as if she has a trick up her sleeve. In front of her is a uniform row of eight other wands planted in the ground. Even though it looks like these eight wands are blocking her path forward, she is ready to fight and finish any challenges that face her in the arena. The ground is red and purple against a mysterious purple night sky.

When you pull a card associated with the number 9, it means that a cycle is near completion and you are ready to put together plans to step into the next chapter of your life. Numerology 9 is all about learning from life’s experiences and using those lessons to guide you. The number 9 shows maturity through growth and that you’re ready to define how you want to live life, on your terms. As you step into the next phase of life, the number 9 denotes a reflective period, which can be isolating in nature.

General Nine of Wands Reversed Meaning

Drudgery from the past may leave you feeling paranoid that people are out to get you. This leaves you unwilling to make a long-term commitment, with fears of being trapped by responsibility. You have gotten this far on your own, but you are lacking the skills that will take you to the next level. Look for someone who has skills that will complement yours, whether it be a financial planner or a creative designer. Survival mode has you in a state where you think that you are under attack, when nothing dangerous is actually happening. These fears could also be protecting you from moving forward, preferring that you stay in your comfort zone. Make peace with your fears so that you can move forward toward your big dreams.
