Your Celtic Tarot Card for Today
9 of Wands
A man holding a wand stands between two large Air dragons. His expression is on of tiredness but triumph. The magician has moved through many trials and tribulations to reach this moment of rest and success. Behind him is dark, twisted wood, the frightening and mysterious depths of the subconscious, where malicious faces of past lives or past experiences in this life may rise to haunt him. To succeed in his journey, he had to acknowledge past errors and build upon that experience. A steep stair leads back from where he stands into the woods, symbolizing that his journey through this life is not yet finished. However, at this moment he and the dragons stand in full sunlight, representing spiritual power. In a semi circle above the man’s head are eight wands, their tips flashing in the sunlight. If he can keep his willpower bright, he can ascend the steps without worry.
There is a pause in a difficult lifecycle, giving you a much needed rest. This is a time when you must carefully plan your next step. Success is in sight but more effort is needed.
