NINE OF CUPS-HAPPINESS.
Astrologically, this is Jupiter in Pisces, here the benevolence of Jupiter functions through the Water/Emotion of Pisces effecting happiness and satisfaction in the Material world. This is the Happiness of the innocent who have sensual pleasure as Spirit in Being rather than a being looking for pleasure.
Sometimes I just sit, and experience Me---it feels good to do so. I have noticed my fellows dashing madly about, with screaming horns, blaring lights and faces set in grimaced hurry. Always going, always running but to where? Most say,"... away I have to go away." What they really mean," if I stop the enemy will get me." That enemy they are fleeing from, is not of a race, creed or color, nor is it a sex or responsibility, it is the fear of discomfort. The nightmare that has destroyed our sensual dream.....and we know that Dreams of Spirit become human beings; Dreams become people and people must become their dreams----even if they are nightmares.
The Dreams of Stars made Earth, and the Dreams of Earth are myriad in in Her Ocean mind and became alive as plants, insects and animals. Dreams made all living beings, and the Dreams of God, made He and She. The resulting intimacy of Goddess and God made suns and earths and then Goddess & God dreamed of being intimate with their Beautiful Dream Children, and the Angels mated with the woman of mankind to fulfill that dream. Our inheritance is That Dream of the Dreaming Couple who became The Sensual Universe by dreaming of Living Intimacy. Those who know they are the Dream of God and Goddess living among their children, are very happy because they know that the nightmare of "enemy"--- you know, the one seeking to destroy our comfort----is merely the trick of ignorance dreaming about "what it isn't", rather than I AM.
To the Qabalist, this card represents Yesod (Foundation) in Briah (The Mental World).. This is a card of emotional balance that is known as a pleasure being yourself. Happiness is our Natural state-------------unhappiness is a state of unnatural fear; an artificial fear, invented to drive us forward pulling the Chariots of Greed that our "masters ride". I love this card, for it reminds me to stop and feel the beauty of being me. For only then can a smile of delight open my eyes to the beauty all around me. I AM the Happiness that Mastered Sensuality!
The 9 of cups is about a full and happy life that should continue. Its divination meaning is complete success and fulfillment of wishes. We know wishes to be dreams. We are reminded to look into the Rainbow Mirror and delight in our beautiful reflection of many colors.
