Nine of Wands-Strength:
The nines in all of the minor arcana of the Tarot deck basically are the best influence you can receive from that genre. In the case of the 9 of Wands, the genre is the Spiritual Fire that is in the Pranic force of breath. We are the Alchemy of that Fire and in this state of Strength we would be manifesting mental strength, emotional strength, spiritual strength and physical strength ( The four moon tipped intercepting arrows) This is a state of internal and external strength functioning as one united will. The only negative this card could represent is if your antagonist was represented by this card. Other wise this is a card of Complete Strength that comes from deep within. Astrologically this card is the Sun and the Moon in Sagittarius which symbolizes conscious (Sun) and subconscious strength (Moon) and/or the perfect balance of male electric mental and female magnetic mental states, which is where living form is created. All in all a powerful oracle for focused will as successful presence; where the unconditional strength of manifested spiritual will is fully functional in this realm of matter. Where the Real of the Sun and the Reality of the Moon preform in a united success. The Real being the "other side of the mirror" and the Reality being this side of the reflected light-mirror of "being". In other words, this card indicates a perfect balance of illusion (Moon) and The Real (Spirit). Now I know this may be a little "deep" for some but the Qabala is all about the understanding of as above so below which should point out to us that the kingdom of God is all around us, but we do not normally see it. The Nine of Wands reminds us of the Strength that we are composed of...the Above and below Strength of infinite I Am.
When this card is thrown it indicates that in the next 9 weeks or 9 months there will be sufficient strength for the querent to manifest those visions, insights and important perceptions. There will be enough strength, mentally and emotionally to handle your relationship (s) with the Sagittarius people in your life (November 21 to December 21). It is time to implement your strong willed-power in a more effective way in both a personal and professional way. This card also reminds us that it is best to be the balance of both dynamic energy (Sun-male-electric) and able to contain that dynamo in a non- belligerent way (Moon-female-magnetic) so that your will is achieved with out the detritus of dead bodies/emotions/dreams littering your path.
