The Nine of Cups ~ Ahhh...Happiness?!
Tarot Tuesday! The card for the week is the Nine of Cups (Hearts), representing: Deep joy, happiness, blessings and overflowing love. This card indicates that your proverbial cups are truly full and swimming with happiness. There is a new realization of sublime peace and each day becomes a blessing in itself. The overall feeling is that of gratitude for the gifts you have received.
The Nine of Cups is often referred to as “wishes fulfilled.” Yet, fulfillment, or happiness can be a strange creature. It may feel too good to be true, and then, we let the wounds of the past dissuade us. Know that this happiness is not an illusion. It is deeply rooted in the waters of your soul, the essence of your deepest being. You may have “worked” for it, or it may have come seemingly out of “nowhere”, either way it is a gift bestowed.
If you are struggling, this is a moment to reflect on whether you feel you deserve to receive happiness. Perhaps this is a time to forgive yourself or others, so you can experience joy anew.
The Nine of Cups may also signal a time for ritual rebirth or purification. Water is the realm of feelings, emotions, the subconscious and the soul. Consider doing a water ritual to release the past, like a salt water bath, walking on an ocean beach, or swimming in your favorite waters.
Then, believe in miracles and joyfully share your abundant love with others!
