Cards combination description

High arcan Sun and low arcan Nine of Swords and high arcan World combination - may show a fear of failure, but when the Nine is surrounded by positive cards it can be worry for worry’s sake – looking for something to go wrong, feeling it’s too good to be true, etc.
Sun tarot card

Card 1 - Sun

The Sun card presents an feeling of optimism and fulfillment. This card represents the dawn which follows the darkest of nights. The Sun is the source of all the life on our planet, and it represents life energy itself. There is a child depicted in the card, playing joyfully in the foreground. A symbol of our innocence, it represents the happiness that occurs when you are in alignment with your true self. The child is naked, meaning that he has absolutely nothing to hide. The card also depicts the childhood innocence and absolute purity. This is particularly emphasized through the white horse upon which the child is riding. The horse here is also a symbol of strength and nobility.


Similar or supporting cards:
Nine of Cups (wish card) The World (success and achievement)

Opposing or contradictory cards:
The Tower (   Nine of Swords (worry and anxiety) Four of Cups (apathy and discontent).

Sun combinations
In simple line formation The Sun can turn almost any situation into a positive when it trumps as the last card.  Whilst it can still be overruled when followed by cards such as The Tower or Ten of Swords, cards of a lesser negative degree surrounding it may overshadow and reduce the effect although not completely obliterate all the good vibes The Sun radiates. The Sun adds blessings and abundance and can boost other positive surrounding cards but may have difficulty manifesting fully when hemmed in by minor difficult cards.  In positional spreads, the placement title would be the most relevant factor.

Nine of Swords tarot card

Card 2 - Nine of Swords

The Nine of Swords depicts a woman that is sitting on her bed while she holds her head in her hands. It appears as though the woman has just awakened from a very bad nightmare. She seems to be upset, anxious and fearful. Nine swords are hanging on her wall, and a carving that depicts a person defeated by another can be found in her bed. The quilt has been decorated with various astrological symbols and roses. Here we see the same woman in that we saw earlier in the Eight of Swords - and perhaps, she was finally released, but haunted by the nightmares of the suffering she endured while she was left and deserted.


Similar or supporting cards:
 Ten of Wands and The Devil (carrying a burden) Five of Cups (sadness and regret) Eight of Swords (trapped by fear)

Opposing or contradictory cards:
The Star (inspiring) Temperance (balanced emotions) Three of Cups (emotional happiness) The Sun (happiness and contentment). 

Nine of Swords combinations
Other cards suggesting stressful conditions would reinforce the worries found in the Nine of Swords if they also appear in a larger spread, such as, Eight of Swords, Nine of Wands, Ten of Wands, The Devil. Ideally, we wish to see a positive result, so the more favourable the card following the better. Look to surrounding cards to see what is causing the concern.

World tarot card

Card 3 - World

The World card in the tarot deck has a dancing figure at the center. The dancing figure on the card has one leg crossed over the other and holds a wand in either hand. She symbolizes balance and evolution in movement. The fulfillment and unity that she represents is not one that is static, but ever-changing, dynamic and eternal. The green wreath of flowers that surrounds the central figure is a symbol of success, while the red ribbons that wrap around it are reminiscent of infinity. There are four figures on each corner of the card - and they are the same ones that are in the Wheel of Fortune. The four figures represent Scorpio, Leo, Aquarius and Taurus - representative of the four corners of the universe, the four elements, and the four evangelicals. Together, they symbolize the harmony between all of their energies.


Similar or supporting cards:
The World is like the combination of all the positive cards, such as: The Sun (success and happiness) Nine of Cups (wish fulfilled) The Chariot (triumph over obstacles) Ace of Swords (triumph over adversity) etc, so similar cards reinforce these aspects.

Opposing or contradictory cards:
The Tower, Death, Ten of Swords (generally endings) Hanging Man and Two of Swords (stuck, non-movement) Five of Cups (sadness and disappointment)  

World combinations
The ideal placement for The World is the outcome card, or the final card in a simple line.
