Nine of Swords

Description

A small dog lies in a dark alley at night, and appears to be caged in by nine swords. A poster with the dog's picture and the word "Lost" is attached to the fence behind the swords.

Symbolism

The dog symbolizes that which is lost, and the poster symbolizes the one who has lost. The dark alley suggests abandonment, and all that is desolate and empty.

Card Meaning

The Nine of Swords represents the dark hours of loneliness, grief and despair. It is not only about the one who has lost, but also about the one who is lost. Both suffer the pain of separation and it is in the still hours of the night that the memories surface unchallenged by the sunlight. It is an internal grief; yet the one who has lost will find what they seek if the search is continued. The swords appear to be confining, yet they do not completely close around the one who is lost. Once the daylight returns, the path through the swords will be revealed, and the one who is lost will find the way home.

Artistic Media

3D/photographic collage.

Artist's Bio

Lizziecat is a digital media artist with an MFA in digital art.
