The Tarot of Vampyres - Nine of Scepters


The scene is happening at night in a cemetery. We can see trees in the background and closer to us graves. I have the feeling there is a path between the tombs behind the female vampyre and that she is guarding it with that scepter. At the same time I feel she is semi-mad, listening to the voice of the moon, but at the same time she's fighting the influence the moon has on her. So she needs to focus and try to balance those two forces, fire (fiery, masculine, active) and moon (watery, feminine, passive), because she needs all her strength to guard that passage. With her alert stance, it's possible someone unwelcomed is coming. In other words there is an inner fight/disharmony and an outer fight/disharmony as well showed on the card.

The moon symbol is on the tomb on the right and the sagitarius symbol her pendant. I mention this because Nine of Wands is moon in sagitarius.

I want to point that since the deck is heavily inspired by the Thoth, the keyword for this card is STRENGTH.
