The Nine of Cups: Weekly Tarotcast™ – Free Tarot Reading
3-08-22 through 3-15-22
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 in our relationships with others. And of course, in our romantic and intimate relationships.
Is everybody happy? You bet! 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 ritual. As a result, it is 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 continues its transit of Water-sign Pisces. Jupiter is also transiting Pisces through May 10. Jupiter is the planet of luck. Before the discovery of Neptune, Jupiter ruled Pisces. This transit brings creativity, empathy and abundance. Imagination and intuition flourish.
“Clap along if you feel like happiness is the truth (Because I’m happy) Clap along if you know what happiness is to you…”
On March 9th Mercury enters Pisces. We communicate with compassion. We’re more likely to feel our way through situations than to intellectualize or analyze them. Deep emotions may cause us to seek peace and quiet. The pitfall here is that illusion, deception and trickery can lure us into sketchy territory. Don’t engage in dishonesty. And be on the lookout for those around you who might do so.
“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…”
There’s a lot of focus on love and romance this week. New or renewed relationships can help us connect to what’s truly important. Along with romance any of our deep, emotional connections get a positive boost from the energy of this week’s card and the current astrological aspects. Enjoy!
“I need a love to keep me happy… I need a love, baby, won’t ya keep me happy…”
Misuse, darkening or the shadow energy of the Nine of Cups card includes conceit and vanity. Avoid being gullible. However, you’ll want to 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. And all provide the same beneficial effects already described.
The Tarotcast is a free Tarot reading with a new post every week on Tuesday!
