Nine of Cups

TRADITION

Victory, success, advantage, gain, triumph, superiority, etc. “The heart’s content.” (W.) Reversed, the card seems even better: Sincerity, truth, loyalty, good faith, frankness, ingenuity, opening the heart, liberty, familiarity, etc. Concord, contentment, physical well-being

THEORY

Many of the addictions are very suggestive of the influence of the Water on the house of the heart, the Fifth; and we can only say, that they are fairly exact and to the point. The card must signify the realisation of hopes and wishes lying in one’s own power or destiny, making one enjoy the fulness of life, and adopting the philosophy of Epicurus. There is no evil in it. It shows goodness and a jovial disposition, not only contentment and happiness in one’s self, but also, owing to Leo-influence, the love of bestowing hospitality on other people and helping them.

CONCLUSION

Happiness, contentment, the fulfilment of wishes, bestowing benefits, hospitality, the heart’s content,’ loyalty, liberality, the joy of life, love of children; concord, well-being; success, advantage, satisfaction, etc. Joviality.

P.S.–In the more profane branch of divination this card is called the ‘nine-months-card,’ owing to the belief that it means pregnancy and expectance of childbirth. The latter is significant of the fifth house, the former confirms our idea, that the cups have to do with months in time.


Paul Foster-Case

Nine of Cups – Desire fulfilled

Here the winged disk is stable in flight, and comes straight ahead, in contrast to the instability suggested by the four wings on the preceding card. This is the same as the Nine of Hearts, and is the traditional wish- card. It owes this significance to the original Tarot meanings.

Time period

Second decanate of Pisces, March 1st to 10th, under the rulership of the Moon.

Well-dignified

Complete realization of desires; almost perfect pleasure and happiness; wishes fulfilled; physical well-being.

Ill-dignified

Vanity, conceit, egotism; foolish generosity; easily led; one spoilt by prosperity.
