Nine of Swords


Nine of Swords - Upright



  • Anxiety, stress, despair, depression, nightmares, stuck, oppression





The Nine of Swords is a card of fear and suggests that anxiety is building up in your mind and you are at risk of losing control of your life. These anxieties are purely psychological and are not fixed to any kind of external threat, it is simply all in your head. You have overthought the situation and have now created an alternate reality in your head of how things will play out. The Nine of Swords reminds you that out thoughts play a great part in what we manifest in reality and warns that if you carry on thinking the way you do, you'll be at risk of manifesting negativity into your life.

The Nine of Swords asks you to stop your excessive worrying and move forward with your life. The scenario that you're playing in your head might happen, but it also might not, there's no use overthinking it. If there is something that you can do to change the outcome of the situation, then do it. If there isn't, there's no point working yourself up about it.
