The Nine of Cups tarot card shows a man sitting on a bench with his arms folded across his chest. He is well-dressed in a robe and a fancy red hat with red plumes of feathers in it. He wears a smile on his face and looks completely satisfied. Behind him is a wall where nine gold chalices are arranged in a semi-circle, though none appear to have liquid in them.

For singles, it means your dream is coming true. What better thing to dream about than finding “The One,” right? You are in a place to attract the best partner and you may get involved with someone in the near future. Consequently, your life will be filled with love. If you are in a relationship you are going to have a better, sweeter, and deeper connection with your partner. It also points to major relationship-based milestones such as getting engaged, getting married, or having a baby.

The Nine of Cups tarot card signifies that things are going to be great so if you have stagnant projects they’ll start moving and the process will be completed soon. In terms of money, this is a card of great positivity. It indicates better financial status and wealth. You will also receive recognition for your hard work and can also entail rewards or bonuses. Either way, your bank account will benefit.
Health & Wellness- You are in great health right now so savor the days of feeling good and having a body which is strong and capable. You will see great improvement if you’re recovering or being treated for an illness. The long-awaited results of your laboratory tests will also be in your favor, so relax and then celebrate your wellness.

Nine of Cups Tarot Card Meanings Reversed- Imperfections, unrealistic or shattered dreams, misery, mistakes, greed, discontentment, financial loss, and deprivation.
In its reverse, the Nine of Cups is not a good sign. It indicates that your hopeful stance has been shaken by negativity. You are devastated and unhappy. This card indicates struggles and failures in many aspects of life. You’ll fail in executing your plans, achieving your goals, or realizing your dreams. Consequently, you will lose self-confidence and this will affect your view of self, leading to low self-esteem. It feels like you got what you thought you wanted only to find out that you never really wanted it at all. It certainly wasn’t all it was cracked up to be. The upside is you have the chance to re-direct your dreams to something more fulfilling.
Love & Relationships- Whether upright or reverse, this tarot card signifies positivity. If you are single, it shows that you are likely to build a meaningful relationship in the next few weeks. You will feel a great sense of satisfaction since everything will work out as you expected. However, disappointment creeps in when your fairy tale love story is too far from reality. No one can measure up to a character and you’ll be discouraged if this is how you see them. Instead, accept them for who they are and don’t get frustrated they aren’t like your mind made them up to be. This is also applicable to couples who may be experiencing a little dissatisfaction with their partner. Humans are human, and will never be like a storybook character. That’s ok, and you’ll find contentment in your relationship when you accept this.
Money & Career- Pay close attention to your bank savings and your lifestyle. Money will be easy for you but do not spend recklessly. You may tend to overspend to feel good or find happiness, but this is a fleeting solution. You will find greater satisfaction by spending quality time with your partner, family, and friends. Try to make use of your money wisely in order to work less and spend more time enjoying life. Don’t mistake greed for satisfaction.
Health & Wellness- In the context of health, you will feel you’re in great condition. Luckily, the Nine of Cups bodes really well for health related issues so there doesn’t seem to be anything pressing, health-wise, right now. Do keep an eye on any long-standing or chronic issues so they don’t worsen without your awareness and continue pursuing your healthy lifestyle. Go you!
Spirituality- Deeper engagement with the universe is what you should focus on because it is what is currently missing from your life. This card often points to wishes fulfilled and if you’re feeling your dreams of enlightenment have gone unfulfilled it’s time to use the card to your advantage. Re-asses your dreams and make new, more precise ones that put spiritual growth ahead of material goods or physical pleasure. That when you’ll see improvement.
