Nine of Wands

The Nine of Wands is about a spiritual journey that is close to completion. Here you see a crone who has travelled all the way from the spiritual source of this deck - the temple in the upper world, down through the portal, passed the sapling, the mature tree of life, enduring challenges/lightning,to more recently; burning passion. As she gets close to the end of her journey she leans on her walking stick, her final wand. The crone in this card is my Hermit, the ninth card of the major arcana, further along in her quest for enlightenment. This card is about dedication to your path, your practice. You have gleaned wisdom from many experiences along the way and have the endurance to reach your destination.
