9 of CUPS
Cups is about our emotions and feelings, and we feel as if we are satisfied with all we have now. Perhaps we are waiting to see what we love will bring us, if we do our work with love or be more present in our love relationships, we can value what we have with more appreciation...
However, there is a sense that (9) we must consider if our table is full of the things we want or if we have hit the ceiling with regards to wanting more and better.
We have to clearly feel what we need and not be a prisoner to those things we believe we love (see Moon card)...are our issues regarding those things we love enabling us to achieve the best version of ourselves and help us fulfil our purpose in life?
It's time to put our thinking caps on to see how we can make our lives the brightest and most fulfilling possible.
9 = endings, completion.
THE MOON XVIII
As we emerge from the watery depths of our feelings (emotions), that caused ripples in our lives, we must follow a path that seems unknown. We feel a little in the dark and perhaps there is more light to be shed on certain matters regarding the way forward.
We must find the balance between our tame and wild aspects of self, as we pass through the a portal. By embracing our wilder side we have access to our nuggets of gold in the form of...confidence, strength and determination.
We can choose to simply howl at the moon, or we can embrace the unknown, as the master of our own watch tower.
Know that if you choose this path... there are mountains to be climbed but there is also the beauty of a journey upwards and being able to soar from greater heights.
XVIII 18 = 1+8=9 which ties in beautifully with the previous card numerical value. Perhaps it is the end of life as you know it now...and the start of something new and better...?
TWO of WANDS
Perhaps we have been bound by an idea of how things should've played out in our lives and an expectation, and if where we have planted our staff is paying due divid-ends.
We could be playing with ideas of change and making choices that will serve us better and offer more security in all aspects of our lives. We are staking our hopes and wishes on love and peace in work, love and play.
When it comes to decision making we are encouraged to use meditation as a place of stillness from where to draw the answers we carry inside. Knowing who we are and what we want, creates the stepping stone to meeting our needs on a physical, mental, and emotional and spiritual level.
We are at a crossroads...
2 = coming together or balance. Perhaps partnerships and unions.
*see quote on card for more insight.
6 = Exuberance, you have experienced a breakthrough and are enjoying success and happiness. Revel in how wonderful, heady and intoxicating it feels Express yourself.
Love suit represents essential connections and bonding with another, family, friends,
associates and the greater community. Who or what you are called to love is often a mirror for what you need to develop in your own life.
NB: this ties in very well with 9 Cups card
