Nine of Swords
The Nine of Swords indicates anxiety, fear, depression and inner battles. The person represented in the Nine of Swords feels they can no longer cope and are at their wit’s end. They may not be able to face their situation, what has to be done or what is expected of them. They do not feel strong enough to carry their burden. Your past may have caught up with you or something you thought dealt with, done and dusted, has reared its ugly head and resurfaced once more, bringing all its unpleasantness with it. It’s time to break your problems down one by one instead of attempting to deal with them all at the one time, or you will quickly become overwhelmed.
