Today would be a good day to share your worries with a sympathetic friend. Many of us experienced trouble sleeping last night. The Nine of Swords indicates the experience of waking up in the middle of the night in a panic. Our mind is filled with troubling thoughts and worries at this time. This might in turn result in terrible nightmares for many of us. Even the nastiest of dreams are there to help give us messages and advice to better ourselves.
Keywords of this card include: loss, suffering, doubt, pain, questioning choices, malice, burden, and pity.
It is always important to remember that we are in control of our thoughts and feelings. Gifts of this card include priorities and perspective. This is why it is a good time to talk things through that are troubling you with a close friend or ally. Talking with someone always helps put things in perspective. There is a good chance that the thoughts that are haunting us have little concern in reality.
With a card such as this, I like to draw a couple more cards to put the situation in perspective:
The Page of Swords indicates a time in our lives when we are learning something new. This page is inquisitive and mentally active. She asks us to hone our analytical powers and can also bring us messages about scientific or legal matters. Such matters and overthinking could result in our troubling thoughts that are keeping us up at night. The third card, The Fool, indicates the beginning of a new journey or venture. Change is always scary, even when we know it's good for us. It is especially hard for us when we can't see where this new road is taking us. The Fool is here to tell us to trust in the universe and know that the next step will be revealed at the appropriate time.
If negative thoughts continue to cloud your mind, close your eyes and take a deep breath. Hold your breath in as if you are sucking up all the negativity and exhale all the air out as if you are releasing the negativity from your body. Have faith that all will be well. New beginnings can often start a bit rough, but the rewards that are waiting for you make the ride worth while! Embrace this new chapter in your life!
