The Nine of Cups is often called the wish card. When this card appears in a reading you know your wish will come true. The Nine of Cups most often indicates a wish that’s materialistic – material success, physical comforts, that sort of thing. You’ll be satisfied with the outcome. Your material needs will be taken care of. There’s a real sense that you’ll enjoy material prosperity when this card appears in a reading.

Eight of Cups Tarot Card Meanings
A difficult choice has been made to leave something behind and move on. I say ‘something’ because the neatly stacked cups in this card can represent many things; all of which have brought you joy and happiness and continue to do so. You’ve invested time and effort into these things, and nurtured and cared for them, but the outcome wasn’t quite what you expected it would be. While they bring you joy, you’re not fulfilled – particularly on a spiritual and emotional level.
Seven of Cups Tarot Card Meanings
The Seven of Cups depicts temptations. The man in the RWS version of the card is awed by the fantastic visions before him. There are so many options that he doesn’t know which to choose. But these are just fantasies. There’s no real choice here. Nothing is as it seems. This is wishful thinking. When the Seven of Cups appears, you should be wary of making any choices. It might seem that you have lots of enticing options, but these are just illusions. There’s nothing permanent, or substantial here.
Ways To Celebrate Samhain
Samhain is the Irish word for Halloween. This is when we celebrate the end of summer and the start of the dark half of the year. Many of you reading this will already have your own Samhain traditions and ways of celebrating Halloween. The veil between our physical, material world and the spirit world is at its thinnest at this time of year. We can feel the change starting to happen in the weeks leading up to Samhain and many of us feel more ‘witchy’ during this time. This is when we want to get back to basics and be more practical in our witchcraft.
Six of Cups Tarot Card Meanings
The Six of Cups is a positive omen. If you’re wondering about the outcome of a situation, the Six of Cups indicates that the situation will work out positively, in your favour. If you’re reading about a problem, then you should look to your childhood to find the root of the problem. This will help guide you to the solution. You may have drawn this card to encourage you to review something in your past. Someone from your past may come back into your life. There’s a sense here of the past being in the present. The past is influencing the present situation.
Ways To Celebrate Mabon
Mabon is the traditional Harvest Festival in the Northern Hemisphere. This is the second harvest, when we give thanks, celebrate the bounty of summer and when we prepare to enter the depths of autumn and winter. It’s about gathering our resources around us and getting cosy until spring. Like most witches, autumn is my favourite season. We can feel Samhain’s approach and the thinning of the veil between worlds. Autumn reminds many of us to get back to basics. I tend to gather more ingredients and cast more spells at this time of year. This is also when I ground myself more firmly in Mother Earth and give thanks for her bounty.
Five of Cups Tarot Card Meanings
Something hasn’t turned out like you expected it would and now you’re mourning the loss of that path. There may also be feelings of regret when the Five of Cups appears. Getting lost in regret is incredibly self-destructive. Feeling sorry and making amends will help you on the path to healing, but wallowing in regret won’t help anyone. Eventually you’ll need to pick up the pieces and move on.
Four of Cups Tarot Card Meanings
You’re taking a time-out when the Four of Cups appears in a Tarot reading. You’re unhappy with your situation. You thought things would be different and now you’re dissatisfied with how they’ve worked out. There has been success (as represented by the three cups before the man), but it hasn’t made you happy, even though you probably thought it would. You may also be bored with your situation. Nothing has gone wrong for you really, but you’re fed up with the humdrum of your life at the moment. You’ve lost your enthusiasm.
