Today’s card is the Nine of Cups, also known as Chalices. This card is sometimes titled Happiness, and it is one of the most positive cards in the deck. In some decks, this card is also known as Victory. The image on several versions of this card shows an innkeeper doing a brisk business and feeling very happy about it all. The rewards of high achievement are not all monetary, however. This happiness also refers to the feelings of fulfillment that come from good service to the community and support of one’s family, as well as gratitude for all the blessings in one’s life.
This card tells us that the best faculties to use in your situation are the intuitive ones. The Nine of Cups advises you to open yourself to circumstances around you. There may be no need to manage a situation that does not require a lot of control or leadership. The tone of the moment is heartfelt as you are nurturing others as well as yourself. Open up and choose to be receptive. Proceed from your heart, but rely on your intuition. It is your truest source of information right now. Allow yourself to be attracted to what feels supportive.
Avoid what feels harsh, critical and judgmental. If this requires that you change your lifestyle or habits, then so be it. The results of being intuitive are generally far greater than the results of being emotionally guarded or overly rational. This is a safe time for you to open your heart and mind to the abundance of possibilities available when you work with love for the highest good of all.
Today, may you be uniquely aware of the community that your ‘love in action’ is creating!
