MAAT Tarot Study Group-9 of Cups

Week of the first quarter moon in Virgo

“The first quarter moon phase symbolizes the power of reconstruction. After foundations are destroyed rethinking and reconstruction of a situation is brought to the forefront.”

9 of Cups

Planetary ruler Mercury

The image for the 9 of Cups is a person sitting in a field blowing a ‘wish’ from a dandelion. In the distance you can see the results of all the wishes manifested in the field of yellow dandelions.

The woodland Indians called the foreign dandelion ‘white man's' footprints as it is an invasive species in North America. Brought in by early colonists, it seemed to magically appear where ever Europeans settled in the new world. The prolific dandelion had been a valued food source for European people since the Ice Age. Eaten as a salad and even made into wine, its value as a food is lost to urbanized humans. Some modern nutritionists are now bringing the health benefits of the misunderstood dandelion to light.

The symbolic point to this card is to be careful what you wish for as your intentions can become manifest and then you have to be responsible for the outcome. You may get more than you bargained for.

Traditional tarot meaning: be careful what you wish for

In a Reading: This card is a warning about being careful what you wish for, because you could get it. Sometimes getting what you want can be more than we bargained for.
