Nine of Wands - Minor Arcana Card

Excerpt from Dark Days Tarot Guidebook by Emily Mundy:

Nine of Wands

The Nine of Wands encourages you to embody resilience. There is a noteworthy task to complete, but you are faced with a final test before you can reach the ultimate breakthrough. The challenges before you are like the ending hours of darkness before the delivering light of dawn. Don’t give up. This patience and vigilance will pay off. You are almost at the end, so leave distrust of yourself and others in old skin and move bravely forward. In reverse, the Night of Wands asks you to be more mindful of hasty judgements and displeasure. Consider weather negative feelings encircling yourself and others are a product of exaggerated standards. Take the pressure off yourself (you’ll have more fun if you go with the flow.)

Suggested prompts:

upright: persistence; resilience

right: test of faith; bravery

left: sour attitude; skepticism

reversed: cowardice; too high of standards
