wild {unknown} friday

The card I have drawn for the upcoming week is the Nine of Cups from The Druidcraft Tarot.
This is a card of contentment, wishes fulfilled and satisfaction. This is a person who has reached a certain level of comfort and abundance in their life, and now feels that they can sit back and enjoy the fruits of their labour. Life feels good, and it is time for celebration and pleasure. This is a time of great happiness and contentment, and because the Cups usually refer to emotional matters and relationships, this is likely to be in the sphere of family, friendship and love. 
If you have been through difficulties in the past, now is hopefully a time to put these behind you, and bask in the warmth and conviviality that is available to you at present. 
The Cups also refer to creativity, so you may find that this is a particularly prolific time in terms of inspiration and imagination, when you can successfully bring creative projects to fruition. You may also find that you are bursting with new ideas which you are inspired to birth into the world.
The only downside to this card can be a tendency to get too comfortable in your success. Guard against smugness, complacency, overindulgence and laziness. Remember that however successful you are there are still fresh projects to initiate and new horizons to explore!

  The card for the upcoming week is the Nine of Cups, also known as the “wish card”. 
If you look closely you will see that the cups are arranged in an inverted horseshoe shape, which is traditionally a symbol of good look and prosperity.
The colours graduate from a beautiful serene blue at the bottom of the card, to a gorgeous rosy pink at the top. It puts me in mind of a heavenly sunrise or sunset over a tranquil sea. The colours suggest that everything in the emotional garden is currently rosy and relationships, either familial or romantic are going through a settled and harmonious phase. 
If you notice the cups all look full and they are stable and solid rather than teetering on slender stems that may topple over or snap at any moment. In this way they likely mirror a relationship which is rock solid and built on strong foundations. It may not be in the first flush of romance and trying to impress with grand gestures and flashy, extravagant gifts, but it does have the advantage of having moved on to the next level of quiet comfort, warmth and support. This is probably a relationship that you can rely on and trust to be there for you.
So, the romance may have paled somewhat, and perhaps sometimes you look at others and wish that your partner still showered you with gifts and that you were still in the exciting and intoxicatingly first flush of love? However, “be careful what you wish for” as outward appearances can be deceptive, and it is likely that your partnership although it may not be perfect, is the real deal.

Daily Card ~ Nine of Cups

Be careful what you wish for because you might just get it! Sometimes it’s difficult to know what it is we really want. Even if we have a good idea what it is, it’s impossible to envisage all the ramifications which may ensue if we were to achieve our hearts desire. How many times have we been convinced that if only we had this, that or the other we would be happy only to achieve it and realise that the state of bliss we expected is short lived? Maybe instead of being specific we could ask for whatever we encounter to be for our highest good; or to ‘let go and let God’ if we believe in a higher power.
