Nine of Cups: Weekly Tarotcast™ – Free Tarot Reading
6-23-20 through 6-30-20
This week’s Tarotcast is the Nine of Cups Tarot card. This is one of the happiest, most positive and optimistic cards in the deck. It symbolizes happiness in all aspects of life especially our romantic relationships.
Is everybody happy? You bet! This is a week of satisfaction and contentment. Smile and celebrate. Enjoy the pleasures and comforts of the very best things life has to offer. This card is the big “YES!” Get ready to say yes to almost anything this week. Prepare yourself for the big “YES” – good things are coming your way.
Jupiter is expansive and tolerant. Combined with the element of Water it manifests abundance and good fortune. It is spirituality expressed within the structure of organized religion. The union of knowledge and wisdom.
The Number 9
The Nines of the Minor Arcana bring things to a conclusion. They represent integration, fulfillment and attainment. With Cups and the energy of Water, we enjoy romantic, social and sensual pleasures. Satisfaction and contentment reign.
On the Tree of Life, the Nine of Cups card represents the formula 9. Sephiroth or sphere 9, Yesod (Foundation). The sphere of the Moon where energy crystallizes in the suit of Cups – Briah, the Creative world. Combined with the element of Water (our heart and emotions). Plus Jupiter in Pisces, equaling Happiness.
The Nine of Cups represents Jupiter in Pisces. It rules from 10 to 20 degrees Pisces, or March 1st through March 10th. If your birthday falls on or between those dates you’ll be feeling this week’s energy even more than the rest of us. Jupiter’s energy is “bigger, better, more.” The gift of the good life is right at home in the mutable water sign of the Fish, where things are comfortable and cozy.
In real-time astrology, the Sun is transiting Pisces’ fellow-Water sign, Cancer. Cancer’s love of comfort, family and food is a nice match to the energy of this week’s card. Venus turns direct on June 25th in Air-sign Gemini. This transit helps bring some of this month’s confusion to an end.
On June 23rd Neptune retrogrades in the sign of Pisces. This energy is ideal for inner reflection and personal, spiritual growth. It joins Jupiter retrograde in Earth-sign Capricorn. On June 30th, Jupiter conjuncts Pluto, also retrograde in Capricorn. Mercury continues its retrograde in Cancer. This is the perfect time to enjoy the things that nurture us. Feed your spirit. Reflect on the ways your emotions affect your decisions and actions. All that is compassionate, intimate, intuitive and sympathetic will resonate with you now. It’s fine to take a stroll down memory lane – don’t let yourself get lost in the past.
For the rest of this month it’s best if we can enjoy what we have and focus on the positives in our lives. Take time to observe, reflect and meditate. This is not the best time for action or major decisions. This is the result of all the retrogrades and the Solar eclipse of June 21st. Mars’ transit of Pisces through June 27th makes this a better time for thought than action.
Misuse, darkening or the shadow energy of the Nine of Cups card includes conceit and vanity. Avoid being gullible. Check your “Too Good to Be True” Meter, because if something IS too good to be true you’ll want to take a pass.
Let’s focus on sharing our good fortune and positive news with others and allowing them to share theirs with us! Stay receptive and be ready to say “YES” – accept affirmatives into your life this week.
Power colors: sea-green, blue, purple, violet and white.
Power stones: amethyst, aquamarine, sapphire, emerald or topaz. Wear as jewelry or carry as power stones to manifest what makes you happy and serves your highest good.
Power metal: tin. Not great for wearing – but a strong alloy (and ally) for strength and flexibility.
Power fragrances: musk, lavender, jasmine, heliotrope, carnation, poppy, cedar, honeysuckle and hyssop. These will inspire love, happiness and optimism. They awaken Pisces gentle, loving nature and radiate Jupiter’s noble power.
There couldn’t be a better time to listen to music that makes you want to dance and sing. Or – if you’re feeling too shy for those – lifts your spirits high! How about Pharrell Williams’ “Happy?” or “Don’t Worry, Be Happy?” The word “happy” doesn’t even have to be in the title. One of my all-time favorites (the happiest flippin’ song in the world) is “Jackie Wilson Said” by Van Morrison. Whatever works for you.
Power foods: foods prepared with clove, sage, anise, cinnamon, nutmeg and mint. Especially in liquids (soups, teas) and in all types of desserts and sweets. All provide the same beneficial effects already described.
