9 of Swords ~ Our Personal Demons

9/Swords ~ “Oh, woe is me!”, this card seems to moan, with a very dramatic Edgar Allen Poe feel about it. But take it seriously, even though it may seem overly dramatic and even a bit childish at times, because behind this first facade there can lay the bones of serious depression, anxiety, sleep disorders, or some other cloaked and lurking mental demon. This card expresses to perfection human anguish and helplessness. Once you recognize it for what it is, the tarot will help you find the way out. Look around for that single ray of light, that ray of light that’s always there, it’s just not visible to the figure on this card because their face is buried in their hands.

Reversed:

Okay, you’ve crawled your way up out of the bottom of this very clique bottom of the pit, but how are you going to stay on top? If medical or psychological treatment was sought out, keep up with it and any medication that was prescribed. If the situation wasn’t quite that drastic, but was just a matter of recognizing unhealthy individuals and circumstances in life, continue to avoid them at all cost.

My Personal Connection:

This card, besides the 10 of swords, is probably one of the darkest cards in the deck. We all own a piece of this card, whether we admit it or not, whether we even admit it to ourselves or not. Inside everyone, in the blackest nooks and crannies of our mind, there lays all sorts of shadows and demons that have surfaced from time to time. I don’t believe that anyone who has lived can avoid this energy.

What I have noticed through several decades of life, is that being able to identify the demon and to figure out its weakness, it’s Achilles heel, will help you to overcome it. The mistake that a lot of people make is thinking that if they’ve overcome their darkest most personal demons, they’re victorious. The battle is over. Not so, as I’ve seen with a few unfortunate individuals who have come into my life for brief periods, that’s their down fall. They drop their guard, and IT resurfaces, to claim their soul.

This is a dark card, and it can bring to light a dark spirit, or a dark personality… beware this card, take it seriously, and be vigilante.

The Essential Guide to WICCA for Beginners ~ My favorite part!

Personally, my favorite part of my new book is Chapter 3, Discovering Your Wiccan Power, because this chapter introduces the new Wiccan to those things that will make up their spiritual practice: 

  • learning how to set intentions
  • how to ground and center yourself 
  • how to cast and close a circle 
  • the kinds of tools that you’ll be using 
  • how to set up an altar. 
  • as well as the importance of your own Book of Shadows and how to get started

 I’m curious what your favorite part will be!

The Essential Guide to WICCA for Beginners ~ Solitary practice or coven?

One of the most challenging aspects of your Wiccan practice and an important choice you’ll make is the decision to either remain a solitary practitioner, or to join a coven. As a solitary Wiccan you will have the freedom to build a spiritual path that is uniquely personal; as a coven member, you’ll be expected to meet coven rules, obligations, and milestones within a specific time frame. That’s why I included this helpful tip in chapter four of my new book, The Essential Guide to WICCA for Beginners. There are tons more tips and tricks like this all throughout The Essential Guide to WICCA for Beginners.

The Essential Guide to WICCA for Beginners ~ Founding Pagans and Spiritual Icons

My favorite part of writing my new book was the bio’s for some of the founding patrons of the pagan movement from the 1960s and 70s, because the nostalgia for that era was exciting, and it made me realize how far we’ve come. It was also a heartwarming segment to write because I’ve personally spoken to a couple of these founding pagans and spiritual icons: Z Budapest and Raymond Buckland. I know you’re going to love it.
