Careful what you wish for. Again, a pair I don’t usually find together, but I wish I did (there I go, now I will more often, I’m sure) because in spite of cups, cups and more cups which as we know are all about what’s in our hearts, these two today aren’t about hopes, wishes and dreams, but rather about making a decision and getting real. Too many cups, see how that goes? Now the whole table’s turned over. Imbalance. We need some earth and fire here. Jupiter, the planet of luck, abundance and expansion has just come home for the holidays after a 12 year absence and it looks like he brought plenty of booze for everybody!
Cups are of the suit of Water, of course, Cancer/Scorpio/Pisces, and I’ve been meaning to mention – should anyone be interested – your moon and rising signs are as if not more important than a sun sign when considering a horoscope. It’s like leaving an ingredient out of a recipe…it may be edible, but what’s missing?
The 7 of Cups upright is a card of choices and options – some look good on the surface, and some don’t really look all that appealing. This is the ‘all that glitters is not gold’ card, that is, like that chocolate box I constantly hear about from that movie I never saw. When I was a kid (I would probably still do it, truth be told) I’d always take a test bite looking for the ones with the nuts. Cherries were cool too, but if any of that oozy crap started bleeding out, back in the box it went, bite side down. Only this isn’t a box of chocolates, and you can’t put it back. You break, you buy.
A choice of some kind must be made, and it must be made with a clear head with both feet on the ground.
The 9 of Cups is ‘The Wish Card’ but it too is reversed today. Too may options, job offers, romantic partners? Should this pair be taken as advice, it would be to pick a lane and stay in it.
I don’t know what I want.
This looks like someone who has ‘achieved the dream’ but it wasn’t what they thought it was – they got the gooey center. The flushed, portly character on the 9 seems to have had his share of chocolates anyway, and everything else. It’s not even the middle of the month and this human’s gained weight and needs a cleanse and a detox.
9 + 7 = 16 = 1 + 6 = 7, the number of Faith. Somebody let you down. Somebody wasn’t who they said they were or who you thought they were, or didn’t live up to your unrealistic expectations.
What looked like a ‘golden opportunity’ turned out to be ‘fool’s gold’.
Don’t expect people to live up to your fantasies. They’re only human.
The dream was an illusion, like a mirage. What’s the difference? If you dream in both black and white and color there is, but maybe I’ll explain that some other time.
