The Tower and Nine of Swords cards together – what do they mean?
The Tower and the Nine of Swords represent a tumultuous time in your life, where so much has happened, it has left you bewildered and unable to cope.
Life: Exhausted, tired, scared, alone
Love: Too much arguing, mistrust leading to broken relations, repeating the past
Career: Overwhelming amount of work, suffering silently,
Health: No energy, mental or physical breakdown, ability to focus if you allow it
When we feel this desolate, we often don’t know where to start or what to do first. The calm follows the storm, so allow the dust to settle.
The Tower Interpretation
The Tower is a chaotic structure of change.
There are moments in your life where you fear upheaval. What if this shift impacts you in ways you are ill prepared for? You panic, having no option but to ride the wave of unfamiliarity with your breath held and your eyes closed. Your white knuckle ride is alive and kicking.
If you pause, just for a moment and open one eye, you might notice something in your surroundings that brings you peace or at the very least reassurance that soon all will be well. Foundational shifts temporarily cause confusion and aren’t suited to those who prefer the quieter, more balanced aspects of life.
Through loss and trauma, you discover a dimension of yourself that never existed afore. You wipe the steam from the mirror, look at your weary eyes and you see a small spark of strength. In endings, you turn the page and begin to write the next chapter. You are your own resurrection.
‘You fall fast from me and into the unknown, but it is there you find your true self’ – The Tower
Nine Of Swords interpretation
The Nine Of Swords is the mind of fear and unrest.
I love bedtime, don’t you? The lights go off, we tuck ourselves in, we snuggle down and we close our eyes. Just like that, it’s morning and we stretch and rise to another day. The only trouble is, you have no idea what that feels like, because your worries and fears have been keeping you up in the darkness, haven’t they? Having been there afore myself, I know too well the frustration and fatigue.
For the most part, life throws the odd perilous events our way and we manage as well as we can. When life lands us a double dose, or even triple, that’s when we find it hard to compartmentalise and the concept of rest becomes the silent enemy. Trauma can do awful things to us, and its easier said than done to simply ‘deal with it.’
Anxious hearts can lead to unfair mistrust. They can resurrect past mistakes and make them unnecessarily present. This hinders relationships, so be mindful of that. If work is proving to be too much for you, don’t suffer in silence. Try speaking to somebody who can help or offer time off. Your task now is to find ways to cope with these challenging times and come out stronger the other side.
