The Thoth 9 of Cups-Happiness:
The 9 of Cups card represents contentment and satisfaction.
This is a card of great blessing, emotional fulfillment and overflowing
happiness as the will and imagination fuse into flowing creativity.
The 9 of Cups card states that happiness is being experienced internally (three
vertical cups symbolize body, mind and spirit) and externally (three
horizontal cups represent body, mind and spirit externally).
blossoms are the symbol of open spiritual awareness, internal happiness
and the pewter cups represent the body, whose happiness is overflowing.
The astrological symbol of this card is Jupiter in Pisces. Jupiter is
the planetary symbol of luck, opportunity, and growth. Pisces is the
astrological sign of fluidity and fullness. Therefore the 9 of Cups is total happiness that
flows through body, mind and spirit.
The Spiral Tarot 9 of Cups depicts this total happiness of body, mind and Spirit as a woman sitting on "Cloud 9". A slang term for one who is totally happy.
Satiety is a momentary stability
that must change, but doesn't mean drastic emotional swings but often a
movement towards other creative endeavors and the various feelings that new
uncharted ground brings. This is a positive, especially since we know we
can experience deep emotional contentment and happiness by our ability
to complete new endeavors. When change and stability reach a balance
both internally and externally, we experience a deep contentment and

THE Thoth NINE OF CUPS
-Lord of Material Happiness, is Jupiter in Pisces. The Spiral Tarot shows no affiliation with planet or astrological sign simply because it is following the tradition of not paying much attention to the minor card.
The Angels of the Decan are Saliah and Asriel.
The Nine of Cups is Yesod in Briah, influencing the Material World.
Here, the benevolence of Jupiter, effects happiness and satisfaction in
the Earth plane (Malkuth), by functioning through the Water of Pisces.
The 9 of Cups, is a card of sensuality and pleasure, more mystical than convention
allows and less stable than the Ten, though it is now flowing and reaching
towards the mystical states of ecstasy. Here, sensual pleasure, may
be felt as a religious experience. as the influence of Jupiter is strong
in the passive, receptive and somewhat psychic character of Pisces.
Jupiter in Pisces also indicates pleasant travel by water and brings
good fortune through occupations governed by Neptune. The personality
inclination here is a tendency for kindness, quiet and unassuming, with
an unambitious approach to life. If the planet is well dignified, there
may be a more ambitious approach to occupation.
arrangement of the Cups in the Thoth card, shown overflowing into one another, suggests
Chesed-Jupiter and the perfection of Water force; a dreamy current of
Consciousness which is also reinforced by Yesod-9, being the number of
the Moon. Pisces brings out the most Placid form of Water (
consciousness), so this card is a Happiness well-spring that floods into
our normal state of consciousness. The recipient of this Happiness,
really doesn't ponder a reason to be happy, for their own consciousness
has not reasoned it out as a logical way to be.....they "just are" and
they feel "good all over".
When thrown, the 9 of Cups card indicates
- In the next 9 weeks or 9 months you are able to experience
emotional expansion and liberation; happiness from feelings of
contentment and feelings of fulfillment in completion.
- You have the
ability to integrate and balance deep internal feelings in a expansive
and liberating way for your own external happiness. However, in a
universe where "Change guarantees stability. Stability guarantees
change." this is not permanent so my advise is to fearlessly enjoy fully
the moment of great happiness and know that it is but a flowing moment
that is to be experienced in the now.
- It implies Contentment and Satisfaction.
Everything looks and feels "rosy".
- The querent, is enjoying self-esteem
and inner joy; Flowing feelings of inspiration and joy.
- The dull thunk
in this chiming joy, is that this is temporary, as Change is the
stability of the Universe; "the cat's away, so the mice can play", kind
of moment that happens before reason takes over, and finds the logical points of
survival thinking that messes up "unmitigated joy'.
