My dear friend, Eleanor explained the number 9 in the Tarot to me as a nice place to stop. It's comfortable and it's satisfying for the time being. But it can go further. The NINE of CUPS is a great card to pull. It reflects emotional satisfaction and getting what you want. And it is definitely a good place to kick back for a bit and enjoy the great feelings that come with it.
Knowing it can go further, it's hard for me to sit with the Nine of Cups without looking toward the Ten of Cups. If we look at the TEN of CUPS we see that the next step is about community and sharing the love.
All that said, we should definitely enjoy this moment and revel in our emotional accomplishments. AND why not look forward growing those accomplishments by sharing the love and joy with others?
