Nine of Hearts

Traditional Meanings:

The 9 of Hearts is almost universally known as “The Wish Card.” It represents the seeker’s deepest desire, and indicates that the wish will come true within the time span represented by the card spread. This card is considered the very best in the entire deck.

Suit Influence:

Hearts: Love, romance, happiness, peace, contentment, the emotions, family, friends, honesty, trust and goodwill.

Number Influence:

The Number 9 represents fortune, dreams, ambitions, attainment, fulfillment, accomplishment, and achievement.

How To Read the 9 of Hearts:

Symbolically the 9 of Hearts denotes happiness, attainment, gratification, and peace of mind.  It represents whatever situation, circumstance, event, or possession in life will make the seeker happy. It can represent a conscious want or a subconscious desire. It often foretells that the seeker’s deepest desire is about to manifest, and that his or her most treasured dream is about to come true.

My grandmother called the 9 of Hearts The Big Wish Card. There is another wish card in the deck-the 3 of Hearts-which she called “Small Wishes.”   If the Small Wish Card appears in the card spread, it indicates that a small wish that the seeker does not expect will come true.  The Big Wish Card-the 9♥-represents the deepest wish or desire on the seeker’s mind, and indicates that the wish will come true even if surrounded by spades. The Spades would indicate problems and challenges regarding the wish, and would delay but not nullify the good fortune of the 9♥.

For example, if a woman wishes for the love of a specific man, the 9♥ may appear surrounded by spades to indicate that her destiny is not to be with this particular person. But the fact that the 9♥ appears in the reading still indicates that her wish will come true. What she is really wishing for is the love and companionship of a happy relationship, and the card would denote that she will eventually receive this wish.

Card Multiples:

Two 9‘s: higher education or the travel industry.

Three 9‘s: Changes in philosophy or attitude.

Four 9‘s:  Highest level of attainment, fame and celebrity.

Suggested Card Combinations:

10♠ + 9♥ = a secret or subconscious wish.

9♥ + 10♦ = the desire for financial security.
