Achievement, happiness, wish fulfillment, rewards

Artist Statement

“The Nine of Cups is a card that stands for hopes and dreams, and is one of the most happy and positive cards present within the tarot deck. It means that your wishes will be fulfilled, that you are feeling satisfied and are content with your life. The cute female clown in the picture somewhat resembles the original and traditional character from the Nine of Cups card. They both wear red hats and blue/white striped clothing and both have blue curtains in the background. She has a happy expression on her face because she finally is able to ride a unicycle while balancng three plates with nine cups on them after a long time of practice. Finally her hard work has paid off and the spotlight is on her.”

Card Meaning

A clown sits on her unicycle, balancing three spinning plates in her hands and on her nose. This is no mean feat in and of itself, but on each of these plates sits three cups. She is so close to reaching perfection – these cups are stable, only one starts to fall. Her smile is wide though, her face happy and enthusiastic. She is not taking this as a setback, realizing that all her hard work and practice has paid off, this is just one tiny slip. She basks in the spotlight, her dreams have come true.

This card congratulates you for all that you have achieved and suggests you have all but completed your task and gained the happiness and contentment you seek. The only issues now are minor tweaks to the final outcome that you will be able to deal with very quickly, given all you’ve already learned.
