Understanding the Nine of Swords in a Love Tarot Reading
When it comes to traditional tarot readings, the Nine of Swords often refers to worry or anxiety. Troubled sleep or nightmares literally may be keeping you up at night. Apprehension and fear of the future may be disrupting your sleep patterns. In many cases, the Nine of Swords tarot card signifies feelings of powerlessness or hopelessness. You may feel as though you have no control over your current circumstances. When it comes to love tarot, you may be concerned about your intimate relationships. The good news is that things may not be as bad as they appear.
In love tarot readings, the appearance of the Nine of Swords encourages you to face your problems head on. Ignoring your troubles will only further exacerbate your problems. If your romantic relationship is concerning you, it would be best to have a heart to heart with your partner. Be willing to express yourself in an open and honest manner. Even if your fears are indeed true, it’s much better to come to terms with them then continue to live in debilitating anxiety.
If you are still struggling with the loss of a relationship from the past, you may need to seek help in dealing with feelings of loss, anger or grief. If you are single and are concerned that you will never meet a true mate, know that your fears are not based in reality. On some level, you may need to learn how to deal with you fear of being alone. Keep in mind, however, that fears aren’t facts. Fear is an emotion. More often than not, it can stem from old wounds that have yet to be processed.
Don’t try to avoid feeling your feelings. If you are experiencing loss, disappointment, frustration or fear, try to become willing to accept what you are feeling. By allowing yourself to process these emotions you will eventually move through them. This too shall pass. It’s important to trust the process. In love tarot, the Nine of Swords may appear to be upsetting. In truth, it reminds that things aren’t as bad as they may appear. Eventually, you will be able to look back and see this as a powerful learning experience.
