"The 9 of Cups represents Yesod in Briah, influencing the material world. In this context, the benevolence of Jupiter brings happiness and satisfaction to the Earth plane, Malkuth, by operating through the waters of Pisces. The 9 of Cups, titled 'Happiness', symbolizes sensuality and pleasure—more mystical than conventionally perceived and less stable than the 10. As a result, emotion flows gravitate towards the mystical states of ecstasy. Such sensual pleasure might even be interpreted as a religious experience given the pronounced influence of Jupiter in the passive, receptive, and psychic nature of Pisces. Furthermore, Jupiter in Pisces suggests enjoyable travels by water and augurs success in occupations steered by Neptune. The personality depicted here leans towards kindness, being quiet and unassuming, with an unambitious outlook on life. However, if the planet is well-dignified, a more ambitious approach to occupation might be present."

"The square arrangement of the cups on the 9 of Cups, with each overflowing into the other, alludes to the 4th Sephiroth, Chesed-Jupiter, signifying the perfection of the water force—a dreamy flow of consciousness. This association is further strengthened by Yesod, with 9 being the number linked to the Moon. Pisces manifests the most placid form of water, representing unconscious emotions. As such, this card embodies a wellspring of happiness that permeates our usual waking consciousness. Consequently, those experiencing this happiness don't overthink this state; it seamlessly flows from the unconscious to the conscious realm without scrutiny."

The Astromatrix Tarot- 9 of cups

The Astromatrix Tarot- 9 of Cups illustrates a woman whose face shows complete satisfaction.

The just as in the Rider-Waite Nine of Cups, the Astromatrix 9 of Cups illustrates the more mundane meaning of The Lord of Material Happiness. The smiling figure is enjoying her complete success and fulfillment of wishes and proudly displays her wealth of nine golden cups in a moon-like crescent. The blue curtain represents the element of water.

Number 9 is the Sephira Yesod [foundation] on the Qabalistic Tree of Life. The 9 of Cups, is Yesod in the Suit of water, and 9 being also the number of the Moon whose image suggests the Astral mindscape of dreams, strengthens Water. Thus, the stability is restored to Water. After its wobbly exclusions to Hod -8-left hand path/pillar, and Netzach-right hand path/pillar suit of Water has now returned to the Middle Pillar.

Astrologically Jupiter in Pisces is the Ruler of the 9 of Cups, thus adding a benediction that is more than sympathetic to Water. This is obvious, since Jupiter is the Planet of Chesed [Mercy} where water is in it highest manifestation. Plus, Pisces brings out the placidity of Water. The Nine/9 of Cups is True Wisdom fulfilled in Perfect Happiness.

When the 9 of Cups 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 "unmitigated joy".
  • The love that opens everything.
  • Optimism and trust in the future.
  • Charity.
  • Emotional breakthrough.

If ill defined by surrounding cards in the layout it implies:

  • Self-complacency.
  • Vanity.
  • Arrogance.
  • Faux happiness of materialism.
  • Stinginess.
  • Loss.
