Nine of Cups is a card used in Latin suited playing cards which include tarot decks. It is part of what tarot card readers call the "Minor Arcana"
In Nine of Cups, a middle-aged man sits upon a wooden bench with his arms crossed in contentment. He is dressed smartly and wears an expression of true satisfaction on his face and his red head-dress symbolises an active mind. Behind him is a wall with nine golden cups arranged in a structured, well-organized arch. The man enjoys success both materially and spiritually and represents the fulfillment realized realized after the accomplishment of our deepest desires.
