Nine of Cups – My Thoughts

“The Nine of Cups predicts that you will receive everything you ask for – make the most of it.” – Lisa

Remember, however, that getting what you want is only half the story. If you wish to keep your happiness, you must work to sustain it. Good things come to those who hustle.

The Nine of Cups card is often not too negative, but it can sometimes appear in a negative spread position or as a challenge. If it does, it can mean that you’re overindulging in the finer things in life without much thought about the future. You may be making it all about what you desire at the moment and not about what truly matters. If this is the case, you should aim for a more balanced lifestyle.

Another possibility (if the Nine of Cups appears as a negative) is that you place too much focus on success, status, and gaining attention. You crave the high life but don’t want to do the hard work required to achieve the things you want. You’re more about quick fixes than you are about the grind. However, even in a bad position, the Nine of Cups still says there’s a strong possibility of obtaining your desires if you do what’s required of you.

Nine of Cups Love Tarot Meaning

In a love Tarot reading, The Nine of Cups is your guarantee that you’ll get the things you wish for from your partner. However, make sure you’re clear on what you really want first, as you may end up manifesting something you don’t intend!

There’s a high chance that this relationship is going to give you everything you ever wished for and more. So, if you’re looking for someone to settle down with, have kids, and marry, the Nine of Cups is one of the best love Tarot cards you can receive. 

The only thing I would warn against is a partnership that’s overly sexual in the early stages of a relationship. The Nine of Cups is the card of physical pleasure, but the excitement of this can fizzle out fast. Therefore, this card can warn you not to give the milk away for free if you want them to buy the cow!
