Tarot of the Celtic Fairies: 9 of Swords


I like to think of this card, typically, as intense anxiety, fear and/or worry.

Pictured in the card is a human woman standing before a changeling in shock/surprise/horror (?). You can only see her from the back, so her expression is left up to interpretation. The description in the tiny pamphlet says, "A changeling takes the place of a human child. Meanings: variance, transformation, disappointment."

I feel this adds an extra dimension to the traditional nine of swords card. I might venture so far as to suggest that this card represents intense anxiety or fear specifically of change. Any other ideas?
