Today’s TarotCraft community card is the 9 of Swords. Typically this card refers to depression, anxiety, and having a troubled mind. Talking with a friend, a therapist or joining a group of likeminded souls will help you to begin to heal. You don’t have to be on your own with your pain any longer, and in fact to do so will be to your detriment.
Each Tarot card offers us a Gift, Invitation and Challenge. Before you read on, decide if you want to know which one the 9 of Swords has for you. Please let us know in the comments what your choice was and how the answer applies to you.
Image description: A figure wearing a white nightgown sits up in bed. Hiding their face in their hands, their body language suggests despair and sadness. 9 Swords hang on the wall behind them, displayed horizontally. The lower swords appear to pierce the crown, throat, and heart chakras. The squares of the bedspread show astrological symbols.
The Gift of the 9 of Swords is found when you reach out to connect with and be supported by your chosen family and community, or a professional helper such as a therapist. Bringing your fears into the light of day will cause them to diminish.
The Invitation of the 9 of Swords is to find peace with the things you have had to let go, or have been forced to let go. Have compassion for your grief. Be gentle with yourself the way you would be with a child or friend who has experienced loss.
The Challenge of the 9 of Swords is to take steps to improve your mental health and wellbeing.
(Hint: the Gift is the grace that is already given us to overcome the Challenge, so if you chose the Challenge, also see the Gift.)
