The Nine of Cups portrays a beautiful golden background and shows a middle aged man sitting smug on a wooden bench. The man is portly and has an air of satisfaction about him, which is further stressed upon by the fact that his arms are crossed in contentment.

His silver robe is symbolic of his spiritual attainment. Above him is an arch which holds nine golden cups that are neatly arranged. The cups are empty. This shows that the man has enjoyed the contents of the cups, and they are now displayed as his trophy.

This also indicates that the man has enjoyed the benefits of the material world too. His red head dress portrays his active mind. The card stresses on the fact that the balance of spiritual and material words catalyzed by an active mind hold the true key to happiness.

Upright Position: This card is all about positivity and contentment. It also represents personal integrity, wisdom and creativity which combine to bring success. It suggests to live in the moment and count all the blessings with a thankful heart. The card may also indicate that the subject enjoys the finer things of life but knows the limit.

Reversed Position: Reversed, this card brings news of difficult times leading to frustration. It indicates unfulfilled wishes and that things are not going the way the subject had intended to. It may also signify overindulgence in worldly pleasures that may lead to trouble. Emotionally, it says that the person concerned is inconsiderate and insensitive.
