Nine Of Cups Tarot Card Meaning
The Nine Of Cups is one of the most special cards of all, bringing us the real possibility of seeing something that we have wished for come true. Thus it’s nickname “the wish card”.
Being a Cup, this card naturally relates to emotions, dreams and even visions of what could be in our future – either through our own psychic ability or simply by creating our own idea of how we want things to look.
An air of happiness surrounds us when the Nine Of Cups is present in a tarot reading and since it’s a high numerical card, the wish or dream we have is likely to be something that’s been on our minds for some time.
Cups correspond to water signs in astrology, and so they naturally bring in the energies of Pluto, Neptune and The Moon. All of those celestial bodies can cause emotional upheaval and or emotional healing depending on the individual receiving a tarot reading.
Nines are interesting numbers as they correspond to generosity of nature in numerology, and to travel, education and religion in astrology.
For the purposes of a Tarot reading, the number nine means a singular thing or a person alone. Tarot nines point to that one, special action, communication or even an item that you find especially valuable.
The Nine Of Cups is such a deeply spiritual card and it surely can mean that a dream or gut feeling that’s been recurring in your life will be found to be accurate. It could be just one thing, or, as with some wishes, it can relates to a number of things coming together to create that one dream come true.
Additionally, nines are multiples of the number three, and that carries with it the relationship to communication. You could hear something very important to you, or, to be more literal about it, you could hear three things that are all very important to you.
But there is a catch. Like always….
Like with all wishes that could come true, you need to use caution lest you regret what you wished for in the first place. Just as Aladdin found out when he rubbed that lamp – once you voice your wish you can’t take it back.
Also remembering the story of The Monkey’s Paw, we should do our best to imagine what life might be like when that special wish is granted. Many things can evolve out of one single wish coming true and what seems like a great idea or even the right idea at the time can create an unpleasant chain of events.
So the words of wisdom that should come with the Nine Of Cups tarot card is “Just be careful what you wish for because it may come true!”
