Banking Everything on Courage: The Meaning of the Nine of Cups
The card in itself has a relatively simple, yet heartwarming image. A man sits happily on a chair whilst having a curtain in the background. On top, there are 9 cups forming a crescent around the man. Many would interpret this as a businessman who has successfully made a profit. The cups around him and the curtain all represent opulence and prosperity.
It’s also possible to see it as that of a businessman actually trying to sell something. The cups in this case can be seen as some sort of merchandise, and here, the businessman is clearly selling well. The smile on his face indicates satisfaction in his life and his choices. And all of this may have been the result of him banking everything on his particular endeavors.
No matter what the interpretation one might have over what the card portrays, there is no doubt that it is a card of financial comfort. One can imagine the person in the Nine of Cups making forays into banking and making genuine progress in his finances. And for the most part, the card sees the same outcome in you. It sees the inner businessperson and the promise of a financially secure future.
But in order to have the same success as the grinning man in the card, the card is urging you to first set your goals in order. If you’re already thinking about having a career in, say, banking, this could very well be the sign you are looking for. Those who are after profits need to pursue their goals with passion and intensity. Needless to say, if it means banking everything on courage, then you must do so.
On the other hand, if your goal is to simply have a business, then the card is telling you to move forward with it. The idea may not take off at first, but as long as you’re banking on something whose rewards eclipse the risk, you’re golden. Stay strong and resolute in the pursuit of your dreams, for you can indeed make them work if you are persistent enough.
In the end, though the future promised by the card is solid, everything is banking on you to make the move in the first place. Do not let fear hold you back, and you will prosper.
