Nine of Wands tarot card

Card 1 - Nine of Wands

The Nine of Wands shows a weak-looking man holding on to a wand with 8 other upright wands standing behind them. The man looks injured, but he still seems ready to fight another battle, and desires strongly to win. He has a look of hope and determination about him that should help him go through that one last battle. It is a card that shows a mix of challenges, hope and triumph.

In simple lines and free flow methods, the easiest position is where this card ‘bridges,’ so the card following it shows to what extent the perseverance is successful. Other cards suggesting stressful conditions tend to reinforce that aspect of the Nine of Wands if they also appear in a larger spread, particularly… Eight of Swords, Nine of Swords, Ten of Wands, The Devil. Also, should any of these cards directly follow the Nine of Wands it shows the situation dragging them down further.
