Nine of Cups: such a happy Tarot card!
For my first Tarot blog, I’ve chosen to focus on one of the happiest cards in the pack. The Nine of Cups is better known as ‘The Wish Card’ – if it’s turned up, you’ll get your wish! This card represents satisfaction on all levels and is commonly taken as a sign of someone ‘getting their heart’s desire’ – their dreams are certainly within their grasp – and often right around the corner.
The imagery on the Rider-Waite Tarot card is very positive: a predominance of yellow, the uplifting colour of sunshine and happiness. The man sits comfortably on his stool, cheery-faced and arms folded, his nine cups proudly displayed behind him on a luxurious green cloth. He is the epitome of contentment and, if you receive the Nine of Cups in a Tarot reading, it’s likely you’ll be experiencing happiness and contentment in all areas of your life.
This lovely Tarot card can refer to a romantic relationship, friendship or something more sensual, as well as good luck in your work and general well-being. It demonstrates self-confidence in emotional experiences, fulfilment and the healing power of love.
Like all cards from the Suit of Cups, the card represents the element of water. The whole suit is associated with love, relationships and feelings, naturally corresponding to our modern day suit of Hearts. The people represented by ‘Cups’ tend to be emotional and creative. They’re also usually water signs of the zodiac: Pisces, Cancer or Scorpio.
The appearance of the Nine of Cups indicates a bright future. If you’re lucky enough to receive it, enjoy life! It’s yours for the taking!!
