It has been a whirlwind of activity at my house the last few days; we’ve decided sort of last minute to have a Halloween/fall/pumpkin carving party at the end of the month and we are hustling to get everything just right! I’m talking lights, I talking snacks galore, I’m talking just the right ambiance of spooky but cozy, I’m talking pumpkin guts, I’m talking costume mandatory or there’s a spooky punishment. I’m so excited and it’s the first actual party I’ll be throwing as an adult at my adult house with my adult friends!
But onto today’s card!
Today is the Nine of Wands. This is seriously only the second Wands card we’ve pulled, which is because the deck apparently has like 50 pentacle cards; I swear, it’s like every other day is a Pentacle card and we haven’t had any repeats yet.
Wands represent actions. Nines are fulfillment. Knowing that Nines come at the end of the suit, we can assume that Nines are there to remind us that we’ve come a long ways and should be proud of our journeys.
For today’s card, I’m actually getting a call-to-arms kind of vibe. Knowing that my own yard is in need of some heavy care, I actually think it’s hilarious that this card, showing a woman reaping some crops or trees with her scythe. So apparently the action I’m being called to today is yard work!
Another way to read this card for all of you that have other things more pressing in life that some overdue yard work, is to reap what you have sown to this point. It is the harvest season after all! Maybe this means finishing harvesting your garden which you literally sowed earlier this year. Or maybe it means you should take the actions to get the reward for having worked so hard. Maybe that means pulling a little out of your savings because you’ve been smart and getting yourself a festive latte(you know the one), or taking the time to sit back and appreciate all the hard work you’ve put into your schoolwork by celebrating all you’ve learned this year.
Sometimes reaping and harvesting are hard work as well, but the end result, of having the supplies you need, the knowledge you gained, the progress you’ve made, is worth it all in the end. Remember to be proud of the work you put in.
Here are all the cards we’ve pulled, including the measly two Wands we’ve pulled. I mean, we’ve pulled more Major Arcana cards than we have Wands!
