Nine of Cups

This tarot card indicates wishes come true. We have come a long way from wishing, and laid out the foundation to success, brick by brick. At this stage, we are supremely confident and satisfied, and welcoming of the sweet fruit of our labour that is headed our way. We have achieved this success after overcoming multiple setbacks, and obtaining the experience from those challenges. We are now in a phase of relaxation, followed by a sense of well-being and contenment.

The biggest chunk of the Tarot deck, 56 of the 78 cards, comprise the Minor Arcana. 40 cards out of these fall exclusively under the Minor Arcana, while the other 16 also form a part of the Royal Arcana or Court Cards. If the Major Arcana can be said to convey the big picture, the Minor Arcana signifies the specifics in the life of a person. It is divided into four parts: The Suit of Swords signifies the realm of the mind and intellect, our decisions and insights. The Suit of Cups has to do with the things of the heart, things we love and care about. The Suit of Wands represents our power and life energy as applied to the situations and events we face in life. And lastly, the Suit of Pentacles represent our labours and the rewards we gain from them.
