Nine of Swords

Nine of SwordsWe are worried -and with good reason. We have found ourselves on the wrong path and if we move forward we will fail. If we have not started out yet we should stop moving forward. But we find it hard to resist because we fell in love with this particular path and the desired results.

Nine of Swords is undoubtedly one of the worst cards of the Tarot deck. We are worried sick and rightfully so. We have all the reasons to worry since everything we worry about will indeed materialize –and things can get even worse.

The situation is so bad and complicated that it seems that it is better to give up altogether and not move forward at all regarding the subject at hand. If we move on it will only lead to loss and sorrow. In other words, this process cannot be fixed –we can either let go or fail.

If we still have not started on this particular path the obvious advice is to stay away. It might create an immediate difficulty or inconvenience but will pay off in the long-term. If we have already started the process we better stop as soon as possible, cut our losses and escape while we still can.

It is important to understand that we are so emotionally attached to the process that it will be hard for us to quit or stop.
