This is another card that has very rich symbolism. No, no one is getting stabbed with 9 swords...the meaning of the card, however, is worry, fear, thoughts that keep you up at night. Swords are a symbol that means thoughts and live in the realm of the element of Air.
If I drew this card in a reading, I would note that the person I was reading for - or the 'querent' - was struggling with a huge amount of worries or fears that were quite stressful and perhaps preventing a good night's sleep. What to do about it would depend on the other cards in the chosen spread, but I think that when someone is "run through with worry" we might easily picture this card!
So, have a safe and worry-free day, but don't turn your back on anyone (learn from Ceasar's mistake, won't you)!
This ends your 'Bad Card' lesson for the day. I welcome your questions, comments and any feedback you may have to offer.
