Drawing this tarot card insinuates something you feel quite passionate about is to become manifested in your life. This will happen as a direct result of you sticking to your guns and being fearless.
The Nine of Wands feels right on target as my tarot card of the day. In theory, a vacation leaves one rejuvenated and refreshed. I’ve just returned from a beautiful two-week frolic in LA with my daughter. I was moving full steam ahead when I left for California. I was busy practicing yoga, writing, reading cards, working every day and being a mom. I made a conscious choice to just relax while away. Now, I find myself back in New York almost afraid to pick up where I left off. Just like the figure on the Nine of Wands I am at this moment attempting to move forward, despite the fact I feel less sure of myself than before. I remind myself though, really, all I have is this moment. The work that came before is irrelevant. What matters is what I’m doing now, what you are doing now. Thank you, by the way, for reading this. I’m very happy to have you here.
What are you most passionate and excited about in life? Is it your relationships, your job, your hobbies? Is there an area where you attempt to make progress but feel a bit frightened or unsure of yourself? Sometimes passion and fear are quite interlinked. You can use the Nine of Wands as a reminder to move forward in spite of fear. You can do it! Is there anything better than a victorious underdog? I don’t think so, especially if that underdog happens to be you.
