Nine of Cups: Weekly Tarotcast™ – Free Tarot Reading
2-09-21 through 2-16-21
Happy Valentine’s Day!
The Nine of Cups is this week’s Tarotcast card. This is one of the happiest, most positive and optimistic cards in the deck. It symbolizes happiness in all aspects of life, particularly our romantic relationships.
Is everybody happy? You bet! Because this is a week of joy, satisfaction, pleasure 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 as plenty and good fortune. It is spirituality expressed within the structure of formal religious rituals. 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. So 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 Air-sign Aquarius. This is Pisces’ next-door neighbor on the astrological wheel. Aquarius energy finds happiness through humanitarian causes. But the individualist Water-Bearer still seeks and values partnership.
“Clap along if you feel like happiness is the truth (Because I’m happy) Clap along if you know what happiness is to you…”
Saturn is sextile Chiron on February 9th. But this is a longer-term influence. This energy softens some of the harsher Saturn aspects. It helps us explore our unique path without conflict or controversy. We’re able to go forward with respect for others. We are confident in ourselves without bragging or arrogance. Explore your unique path to happiness.
“Happiness runs in a circular motion, thought is like a little boat upon the sea. Everybody is a part of everything anyway, You can have everything if you let yourself be…”
The New Moon in Aquarius on February 11th is our cue to make a fresh start. A clean break may also be necessary to awaken our vision for the future. We’re ready for new ideas.
“I need a love to keep me happy… I need a love, baby, won’t ya keep me happy…”
There are many planets in Aquarius right now. The Sun, Moon Mercury, Venus, Jupiter, and Saturn. These conflict with Uranus and Mars in Taurus. Clashes can arise. It may be difficult to put ourselves in another’s shoes. Examine new ideas and research new trends, but don’t forget the continuing Mercury retrograde.
Misuse, darkening or the shadow energy of the Nine of Cups card includes conceit and vanity. Avoid being gullible. And 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.
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.
