May All Of Your Wishes Come True
The Nine of Cups is the wish card. It means your wishes have come true, or the card represents being content.
This is the card that shows up when you are satisfied with something, or you are expressing gratitude for something.
You are so happy that you feel the happiness overflowing your heart for any reason. Maybe you are celebrating some success that you had.
Maybe you worked hard for a test and got an A+ for it.
Yes, you earned it, but you are also ecstatic that you got such a great mark for it.
Maybe you were also given an unexpected raise at work, making you very happy.
Maybe you had gotten the job that you had applied for, and this was the one job that you had secretly wanted.
That is one example where this card shows that a wish came true.
Indeed, this card is one of those highly positive tarot cards.
Let’s go over the history and appearance of the Nine of Cups.
The History And Appearance of the Nine of Cups
The Nine of Cups is a tarot card with a long and storied history.
Though its exact origins are unknown, the Nine of Cups is thought to date back to the 15th century.
The card is believed to have originated in Italy and is considered one of the oldest tarot cards.
Interestingly, the Nine of Cups was not always seen as a positive card.
In some older decks, the Nine of Cups was actually associated with greed and gluttony.
It wasn't until the 20th century that the Nine of Cups began to be seen as a positive, benevolent card.
If you look at the card from the Rider-Waite-Smith deck, you will see a man sitting on a wooden bench comfortably.
He crosses his arms and smiles; you can see he is happy.
Looking behind him, you will see a blue material draping this curved structure with nine golden chalices representing happiness after carrying out what you truly want.
What does the Nine of Cups mean in a reading? Let's go over that now.

Cherish these relationships, and let them know how much you appreciate them.
In some readings, the Nine of Cups tarot card can signify that you are too focused on material things.
If you are chasing after money, success, or power, you may be missing out on what truly matters in life.
Take a step back and ask yourself what will make you truly happy.

Sometimes, the best things in life are free.

Now, let's go over some storytelling.
So as you remember, eight numerologically means action, mastery, and achievement, whereas the nine means fulfillment and attainment.
Let's go back to the new mom, as she let go of the idea of working reluctantly since she is responsible for her new baby and her marriage indicated by the Eight of Cups.
However, deep down, she wanted to work, and lo and behold, a friend led her to an employer looking for those working from home to do a job that she would enjoy!
She felt this was a dream coming true, representing the Nine of Cups.
What about the Nine of Cups reversed?
The Nine of Cups Reversed
When the Nine of Cups shows up in reverse, it has several meanings: being dissatisfied or only being happy within and not showing it externally.
It can also represent being materialistic and overindulgent. I don’t need to elaborate on that.
You have to give those credit who don't have much money and have plenty of life challenges yet can be happy within.
I have seen some of those who have been through unimaginable challenges and still find it within them to be happy.
However, those like that likely do not struggle with any mental illness or have it mild to the point that it is controllable.
But, unfortunately, that is the exception and not the rule.
It has been said that money does not buy happiness, but is that true?
Maybe so, but money buys more security and less stress.
If you have money to pay your bills, live somewhere decent, and provide food for yourself and your family, you have less stress and more security.
There is truth to money not buying more happiness after a certain point.
That is why you have so many miserable millionaires and billionaires.
And that is true considering that so many people think that happiness is tied to having many luxuries, and that is not always true.
For example, perhaps having the ability to travel to many places could bring joy to some, and you need money for that.
However, you don't need a lot since you can travel on a shoestring budget.
But does having a Mercedes bring more happiness than, say, a Honda?
I don't think so. However, what matters more than anything is having a good quality car and the money to pay for its repairs when necessary.
Now, let’s go over how you can apply the Nine of Cups to your life.
How To Apply The Nine of Cups To Your Life
You can incorporate the Nine of Cups into your life in several ways.
One is that you can think about what you want and take steps to manifest it into your life.
For example, if you wish to earn an extra thousand dollars per month with your business, manifest it by envisioning that you have that extra money.
Then believe that you will have it, and then start taking action steps to go after it.
You can add a copy of the Nine of Cups to your vision board.
Or, if you have a tarot deck that you don't use, you can put the Nine of Cups from that deck on your vision board.
Get creative with it.
Another thing you can do is have the card inspire you to write a gratitude list.
Once in a while, you have to be reminded of the things that are blessings (I am talking about positive things in your life, not platitudes involving post-traumatic growth).
Sometimes when you reflect on something, it helps to do that.
However, when you are in the thick of grief or extreme stress, an ingratitude list will be more therapeutic to help you journal your emotions!
The good, bad, and ugly. The following tarot card I will go over is the Ten of Cups.
