Nine of Swords
The Nine of Swords is a tarot card.
A woman endures a sleepless night in despair, her face in her hands. Nine swords hang over her. Her blanket is decorated with the signs of the Zodiac, and her bed bears a depiction of 2 dueling swordsmen, one falling to the other's blade.
Called Cruelty in the Thoth Deck.
This card is about suffering, delay, doubt and deprivation. The focus is on blocked progress and anxiety. What looks like loss or failure will provide an opportunity to grow, and perhaps to eliminate fear. Wait for things to resolve themselves. You will have good fortune later on.
