This should be a calm, peaceful easy day for you with the Sun sextiling Jupiter and the Moon moving into gentle, compassionate Pisces.

The Nine of Cups — this version from Nigel Jackson’s  Medieval Enchantment Tarot — is a card of contentment and complacency. Happiness, fulfillment, Love.

Everything about this card is pleasant and peaceful. There’s a rainbow spanning the sky and stars poking through the billowing clouds. An ornate and graceful heron flies over a kingdom below, while a tiny sailboat sets off for parts unknown.

Think about what makes you happy and chances are good it’s the simple things in life. Home, family, friends, health, material comforts and peace of mind. This is what the Nine of Cups is all about and if you’re not where you want to be just yet, think of ways to change that.

The Nine Cups in this card are always full. They’re filled with love, gratitude and abundance, which are endlessly intertwined. They’re filled with hopes and dreams and miracles which are yours for the taking.

The Nine of Cups is called “Happiness” in some decks and the “Wish card” in others. But those aren’t always the same thing. So be careful what you wish for as it may or may not bring you happiness.

The Nine of Cups is a card of satisfaction, fulfillment and contentment. It speaks of being more than just satisfied with your lot in life, but also feeling truly blessed and grateful with where you are.

Take some time to think about what you really want today — and don’t forget to be grateful for what you already have. There’s an intricate balance between gratitude and personal fulfillment, so make sure you’re putting enough energy and effort into both.

Take a moment to look around you today and see how many of your dreams and wishes have come true.

The Nine of Cups is a card of happiness and fulfillment. It speaks of being more than just satisfied with your lot in life, but also feeling truly blessed and grateful with where you are.

Look at the woman in this card — from the fabulous World Spirit Tarot. She’s dressed to the “nines” in a rainbow of vibrant colors, standing before an array of eight distinctive goblets. She raises the ninth and shares its contents with a blackbird perched on its rim.

Blackbirds as animal totems are harbingers of good fortune. They also represent mystery, magic and esoteric knowledge.

The Nine of Cups is known as the Wish card; in this sense it’s about manifesting your heart’s desires. Nothing is taken for granted and nothing is left to chance. It’s about aligning yourself with the universal laws of attraction and getting what you deserve.

Along with being the “Wish” card, it’s also a card of Miracles. As there’s so much more focus on what one has than what one lacks, it’s easier to notice small miracles and in even the smallest things.

Be careful though that you don’t become too complacent: one of the potential pitfalls with this card is getting exactly what you asked for and then discovering it wasn’t what you wanted in the first place. Because of this you want to be very mindful of what you “put out there” today.

Take some time to think about what you really want — and don’t forget to be grateful for what you already have. There’s an intricate balance between gratitude and personal fulfillment, so make sure you’re putting enough energy and effort into both.

Venus and Uranus are sextile today, making way for unexpected opportunities to increase your luck.

Venus rules both love and money, so what better way to attract both into your life than to embrace the ideals inherent in the Nine of Cups?

The Nine of Cups is called the “Wish card.” It speaks of manifesting your heart’s desires through aligning yourself with the principles of appreciation and gratitude.

This version of the card is rich in symbolism. A giant gold koi fish leaps into the air against a blood red Moon. The silhouette of a great white heron on the other side of the card frames the fish in a yin yang formation.

These symbols represent the dynamic principles of give and take that are so much a part of the Nine of Cups message. We know that Venus — when it comes to both love and money — must move and flow in order to grow.

As an animal totem, the koi fish represents wealth and material abundance. The heron represents confidence and fearlessness. They move together in harmony in this card, illustrating the need to balance these energies in your life.

Even the colors of this card speak of fortune and opportunity. Red symbolizes action, movement and energy; gold represents prosperity and fortune, and the indigo hues in the background are tied to the crown chakra and third eye.

Along with being the “Wish” card, the Nine of Cups is also a card of Miracles. As there’s so much more focus on what one has than what one lacks, it’s easier to notice small miracles and in even the smallest things. With that in mind, Count your blessings and expect good things today!

It’s as if fate steps in today to take you by the hand.

With Venus trine the north node there is a sense of the inevitable around and it looks bright and rosy.

If you have been looking for inspiration or a “sign” from the Universe today is the day it may hit you.

You may also feel as if you should be doing something but with the Nine of Cups things can just generally come to you. It is a card of success and wishes coming true.

There is a sense that if you gazed into the centre of this image you would be drawn into a hypnotic trance where only the centre really mattered and everything around it was on the outskirts.

However, if you look at the images which are around this card you can see they are all very pleasant including the words love and happiness as well as a reference to Freud.

Your ability to get to the nitty gritty of a matter is seen today and it may not come from the usual sources.

Jupiter trine the node gives a sense of destiny combined with luck. It’s the type of transit that gives a high chance of a breakthrough with anything that you have been stumped on recently. It is the type of day where anything can happen and probably will.

Don’t be too worried about things going wrong as even if they seem to not be going your way today in the end it will all pan out and you will see the wisdom in the larger picture.

Make a wish and dream big because today is the day you will be heard.

Today — with the planet of love (Venus) in hard aspect to the planet of excess and overindulgence (Jupiter), you could find yourself tempted to overdo it in some areas.

The Nine of Cups is associated with appreciating the finer things in life. With a natural fondness for luxury, comfort, sensuality. composure, self-indulgence, and tranquility. And potentially with excess, depending on how fond of those things — and how susceptible to their charms you are — at this point in your life.

Overall this card speaks of getting to where you feel comfortable enough to kick your heels up and start enjoying the fruits of your labors. And while you may not be exactly there just yet, this card indicates a sense of accomplishment and pride in how far you’ve come.

Here we see a man leaning back and draping his arms across the what looks like a well-stocked bar. He doesn’t appear to have a care in the world.

A large painting of a tastefully concealed nude woman hangs on the wall in the background. Everything about him is relaxed, right down to the trust he places in his rickety chair.

This Venus / Jupiter aspect can be a bit careless. As in trusting too much and taking too many chances. But there’s an element of luck there too, which seems to offset the risk.

Today is a good day to be counting your blessings. The Nine of Cups is called the “Wish Card.” It refers to abundance, prosperity, felicity and fulfillment. it’s a card of gratitude and wonder; it speaks of being present in the moment and willing to receive all that the Universe has to offer.

The Nine of Cups serves as an important reminder that we all create our own joy. We can get stuck in a mindless rut of worry and anxiety or we can make choices to embrace our good fortune and see our not-so-good fortune as lessons or stepping stones.

This version of the card is rich with esoteric symbolism. The Nine Cups look like golden bells, symbols of the abundance that echoes all around us. A winged-heart with is an all-seeing eye floats in the center against the backdrop of a star-filled sky.

The Rumi quote: “God will grant you whatever you desire in your heart” ties in perfectly with the modern-day Law of Attraction principles. And in the context of this quote, it refers to the personal relationship that each of us have with the Divine.

Nothing is taken for granted here — it’s all about putting out there to the Universe what you want and fully expecting to have it delivered. At the same time there’s a great appreciation for all that you have and a willingness to share it with others.

Aries:  Strength

If you find yourself needing to draw on inner strength this month or gain help from those around you then don’t be afraid to ask.

You are not alone and you have plenty of resources to help you along your path. Even though you cannot see the final outcome you have an inner “knowingness” to help you on your way.

As the month progresses you should be feeling the changes around you as you seem to shed your skin and grow a new one… meaning… the changes you implement around you in your environment are coming from within and yourself as opposed to outside forces.

If there is a relationship you feel has outgrown its purpose and has been holding you back then you are well and truly on the road to releasing yourself from its clutches and what’s more you have the strength and resources to back you up.

Reach out to anyone you think may be of help to you now as you start your new cycle.

The moon in the background of this card may seem to be either in its first or last quarter or if you look at it again it could even be seen as an eclipse… and eclipses mean change!
