Tarot Series~Minor Arcana: Nine of Cups


When pulled upright this card is about self-satisfaction. It is about going through the rough patches the rest of the suit had to offer, such as, struggling to find your purpose, to find joy again, you have explored new opportunities, and left your comfort zone. Now you are celebrating this new stage in your life. This card is a super positive one to get in a reading. It is often referred to a the wish card as when you get this card it tells you that you are going to get what you desire. When you are doing a reading about work this card talks about a good chance that something really great is going to happen in your place of work. Whatever it is that you’ve really wanted to achieve at work it is now the time to really push for it. When talking about love this card is saying a romantic relationship you have will go to the next level. So maybe you have been casually dating someone for awhile. This card could be saying you are both going to be ready to commit soon. Or maybe you have been in a relationship with someone for a while now, maybe you will finally get engaged. If you are single this card is telling you that now is the time to start socializing as you may find someone perfect for you. For readings about finances it says that whatever your financial goals are, they seem to be coming to life now. 

When pulled in reverse this card is about how you need to really think about what you seriously want in life. You desire something more authentic. You’ve been travelling a pretty hard path and you feel like you’ve reached a point of fulfillment but you can’t shake the feeling that something is missing. To others you may come across as just smug and make it seem like you just want attention for what you have achieved. However you honestly still feel dissatisfied with yourself. You never seem to have an end to your desires. You always want more to the point that seems much like a black hole. You need to reflect on this and try and figure out where this issue stems from so you can do something about it. This card talks about how you need to stop placing all your value on all your blessings and rather start valuing the quality of your life. 

So this card talks about how now is the time you will achieve your dreams so I thought this tarot spread would be helpful. First I would take the nine of cups out of the deck and meditate on it while thinking about your dreams for life. Then shuffle and pull the cards using your preferred method.
