Nine of Cups

A rather well-fed looking individual sits on a bench with his arms folded.  Nine cups line the top of a raised platform behind him.

This card indicates an individual who is rather smug and self satisfied.  He is very well pleased with his position in the world and doesn’t mind telling you about how great he’s doing.  There is a warning against going too far and appearing to be arrogant.

Reversed:  Indicates some small failures or set backs which should be easily remedied.

EXAMPLES:  Your neighbor with the giant flat screen television, the super gaming computer, the sports car, the trendy clothes and the dream job.

Your beautiful female friend who got married to a rich guy and has 2.5 perfect children, belongs to an upscale church where she sings in the choir, and is voted the most popular girl scouts den mother 5 years in a row.
