Something that needs to be nurtured over time so it can mature to greatness. This card represents somthing or someone of great importance that needs protection in order to mature to its full potential.
Something needs to be kept a secret to allow it time and space to grow and mature to the point where revelation will no longer be able to affect it negatively.
In my case, it was when my husband and I first found out that I was pregnant and we wanted to keep it a secret because some people in our environment either would not share our joy or, in case God forbid something went wrong, would not be able to let us grief a possible loss. We thought loss could be a possibility since it was very early and a lot of pregnacies around us did end in loss.
It was my first pregnancy and we were very protective of it, nevertheless, we have decided to share the news with some people. Right after I was taken to ER with a threat of a loss. We were devastated and I was at the point where i could not even hear the words "baby" or "baby clothes" without breaking into tears. Of course there was a chance of the baby surviving but the doctor said that it's not likely.
In order to protect me, my husband asked those few people who knew not to speak to me of the baby or anything related to the baby, since there was a threat and I needed to stay as calm as possible and prevent any stress.
Well, to make a long story short, one person refused to listen and first chance the person got, they approached me and started talking about getting me baby things. Thinking that i might be loosing my baby at the same moment, the thought of any baby things was unbearable. It took a lot for me to collect myself and not to break down in public. My husband was livid that someone would do that to us.
Well, the good news is that threat of a loss was a false alarm and 6 months later we had a beautiful baby boy:) But the message this card tried to convey to us was that it would be better to keep my pregnancy a secret for longer to avoid unecessary stress and conflict.
Sometimes the meaning of this card could be as simple as babysitting. When I was starting to work with MAAT tarot, I used to ask simple question I already knew an answer for and then pull out one card. So this one time someone was coming to our house to babysit my son while we were gone and I asked a question "why so-and-so cpming to our house tonight". 9 of Wands was the card - the person was coming to take care of and protect our son who was ay to young to be able to do it himself.

The new day and new endeavor. There is much work that has been done already; now you have come to a new level and there is more work and rapid growth to be done before results can be seen. This card suggests learning new forms of communication, learning new technologies, going back to school, learning foreign language, and the beginning of a meaningful relationship. All of this is done with joy and willingness to go forward.
This card came up in a reading for my husband when a time came for him to go back to work after spending a year raising our son. He was unsure of what he wanted to do and unwilling to learn new things, thus wasting a lot of valuable time. This card came up when he came to a point where he had to learn new skills and learn fast. He started learning new technologies and interviewing for various jobs he never thought of before. he also saw that his knowledge of foreign language may come very handy in landing some great opportunities in the workforce. There was also a surprising change in him where all of a sudden he became willing and eager to move forward, learn and apply new skills and even went back to doing his P90x exercises.
An intense karmic relationship, positive or negative. People with whom you may have work to do. Meaningful pain. There will be pain untill work is done, followed by great joy. This card represents the results of lust, greed, and other human shortcomings.

I usually get this card when I am disconnected from my higher self and I start worrying about things that do not exist and imagining the worst possible. Like once I was worried about my mother and could not sleep all night thinking that my mother is in pain or hurt and I kept getting images of my mother in tears. I called my mother first thing in the morining to find out she was doing fine and had a good night sleep.
A person who is brainwashed, unable to see his or her own circumstanc for what they are, as well as disconnection from the intuitive self. There is also a sense of danger where no danger exists. Self-policing.

Being stabbed in the back. But even though someone else commited this dishonorable act, you might be the one to blame. The whole stabbing in the back thing might be just your imagination. Putting aside all that is in your head, try to think about what you might have done to cause that person to act that way. The root of the problem might be in your own behavior and other person's actions are just a rebellion against you trying to control them.
Hititng rock bottom. It's time to let go of an old situation and move on to something new. the experience of betrayal of trust or being backstabbed by associates means you may have been expanding beyond your personal jurisdiction and trying to control too much. letting go of some outmoded habit will set you free. Don't expect others to do your bidding; you will be disappointed by their rebellion.

Having a void in your heart that nothing seems to be able to fill. Do not judge someone just because you do not like how they act, you don't know what is behind their exterior, what have they been through.
Not getting enought of something or not getting what you want. One example would be when a friend applied for a job and did not get it. Another example would be when a friend expected something from a family member but a family member's behavior did not meet their expectations. Feeling of void when your expectations have not been met.
Usually when this card comes up, the void has been caused by something important or at least it's important to the querent.
A woman who has endured significant losses and has recovered enough to reach out to other; either a widow or she has suffered a loss of a child, she somehow recovered enough from her pain to begin to reach out again. She is creative, smart, and sharptongue. Sometimes referred to as the "bitch".
