The Nine of Cups suggests a way to live a happier life

June 25, 2017

RWS 9 of CupsThere are many ways to use Tarot cards beyond the well-known process of doing a traditional reading. Here’s a way to create a happier life today using a bit of advice from the Nine of Cups.

The Nine of Cups is sometimes called “the wish card.” Consequently, people are generally happy when this card turns up in a reading. However, it can have some unfortunate connotations, as suggested by the following two pithy meanings for it.

“The price of getting what you want is getting what you once wanted.” — Neil Gaiman

Sometimes this card reminds me of an ironic curse, “May all your wishes come true.”

Nevertheless, the next pithy meaning for the Nine of Cups, also based on its “wish card” interpretation, provides a suggestion for what we can do today to create a happier life for ourselves:

Count your blessings.

Today, sit down with pen and paper (or sit at your computer if you must) and make a list of all the blessings in your life. Don’t worry if this list is not comprehensive; you can’t be expected to remember everything. But do try to write down as many things as you can.

Many of these suggestions from the cards about how to live a happier, more fulfilled life were inspired by my pithy Tarot meanings and by material in my book, The Soul’s Journey.
