Upright Meanings: caution, prudence, soul searching, introspection, withdrawal, vigilance, spiritual enlightenment, inner guidance, self-reflection, contemplation, inner strength
The Number Nine card in an upright position generally indicates that you are entering a period of soul searching, self-reflection and spiritual enlightenment. You may find that you need time alone to gain a deeper understanding of yourself, to remove yourself from the daily grind in order to discover your true spiritual self, contemplate your existence, your direction in life or your values. The Number Nine can also indicate isolating yourself or withdrawing into oneself in order to recover from a difficult situation. This major card can suggest that you may be going through an anti-social phase where you just don’t want to interact with people as much as you normally would. The Number Nine is wise, mature and knowledgeable and may be an indication of someone seeking the services of a counsellor or psychiatrist. This is a time to focus on yourself and meeting your own needs.

Reversed Meanings: hastiness, withdrawal, rashness, paranoia, isolation, foolishness, immaturity, loneliness, imprudence, being reclusive, restrictive, anti-social
Life Path Number Nine is an extremely spiritual card, and often has to do with institutions and large organizations – everything from a bank to the entire Christian Church. This card indicates spirituality even if you are an atheist. It’s in whatever sense the word ‘spirit’ makes sense to you, even if for you ‘spirit’ equates to ’emotion.’ You may be trying hard to figure out what the ‘truth’ is about someone (or some matter), don’t feel that you have to do it all on your own, ask for help if you need it to gain different perspectives, more information, etc.
The Number Nine card reversed suggests that you have withdrawn too much from the world or are becoming too reclusive. Solitude might have been necessary or good for you at one point but The Number Nine reversed is telling you that it is time to come back to the world and the people around you. Taking time for soul-searching and self-reflection can be a great thing in moderation but too much can be damaging. At some point, you do need to draw a line under things and move forward, this major card in reversed position indicates that now is that time. It can also indicate that you may be feeling shy or apprehensive about being in social situations. Don’t be afraid to get back out there. Alternatively, The Number Nine in reversed can indicate that you are avoiding self-reflection completely as you are afraid of what you’ll discover if you look inside yourself. It can be an indicator of becoming too fixated with someone or something or too rigid and restricted in your views.
