Card 9: Hopes and Fears

Image © Patti Wigington 2009

While this isn't exactly the same as the previous card, Card 9 is very similar in aspect to Card 8. Our hopes and fears are often conflicted, and at times we hope for the very thing we are afraid of. In the example of the Querent torn between the lover and the husband, she may be hoping that her husband finds out about the affair and leaves her, because this lifts the burden of responsibility from her. At the same time, she may fear his finding out.
