The Tarot of Eli: The Running Press Tarot- 9 of Cups & The Thoth Tarot- 9 of Cups- Happiness

Qabalistic Tarot Card comparisons.

The Running Press Tarot-9 of Cups, displays a happy scene of 9 love cups forming into a fountain of flowing happiness. Here, one can find happiness in just everyday life and even if one lacks, people are happy to help those in need, who are not all negative about it. Be generous with you joy, and remember that the Universal Law of Attraction states that "Like attracts like". When one see's wonder all around them, there is no poverty within them.

The 9's all refer to Yesod, the ninth Sephiroth that is the Foundation of all manifested forms and forces on Malkuth-the physical and material plane. Hence, it is the identity of ourselves, that builds the foundation of our lives.

The 9's, generally show very great fundamental force because they rest on the Firm Foundational Base of Yesod. (9th Sephiroth on the Tree of Life)

Now this is pure-conscious- emotional power, so that means it can be used negatively or positively, depending on the perspective of the user. Discrimination is the Key here.

The Thoth 9 of Cups is the Lord of Material Happiness, and is assigned Jupiter in Pisces. The Angels of the Decan are Saliah and Asriel.

The 9 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. Hence, the 9 of Cups-Happiness is a card of sensuality and pleasure, more mystical than convention allows, and less stable than the 10, but 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.

The Square arrangement of the Cups, on the 9 of Cups, 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. As you are this far into the Qabalistic philosophy, you know by now that Yesod, the 9th Sephiroth, which is assigned the Moon, is the Foundation of all manifested forms and forces on Malkuth-the physical plane, just as the Moon influences the tides. The 9's, generally show very great fundamental force because they rest on the Firm Foundational Base of Yesod.

Now this is pure emotional power, so that means it can be used negatively or positively, depending on the perspective and/or presumed identity of the user. Discrimination is the Key here.

Being a 9, the most benevolent aspect of water/emotion, is a card of sensuality and pleasure, more mystical than convention allows and less stable than the Ten, but 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.

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" in a flow of Unconscious/inner happiness.

So when the Nine/9 of Cups-Happiness, is thrown during a reading, 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 is away, so the mice can play", kind of moment. Before reason takes over, and finds the logical points of survival thinking that messes up the "unmitigated joy" of being. 
  • A wish fulfilled. 
  • Receiving what one yearns for.
