9/cups has a traditional meaning of wishes being granted. This card can also indicate a time of great personal satisfaction, enjoying sensual and earthly pleasures, goals met and after a period of effort now is the time to kick back and enjoy the fruit of your labors. This is considered one of the most positive cards in the deck and speaks of satisfaction in all areas of your life.
Sometimes we struggle with just enjoying the things we have worked so hard for. We instantly leap to the next goal, the next item on the list without truly taking a moment to congratulate and celebrate our successes. 9/cups is also about feeling pride about what you have done; you made that the world is a better place because of your efforts, you deserve to pat yourself on the back!
1. Do you allow yourself time or energy to celebrate your successes or do you just move onto the next thing. "Yes I did lose 10 pounds, but I have 10 more to go..." Can you just feel good without tacking on what more needs to be done?
2. Write about a time when you really felt a wish came true, how did that feel? What was the wish? Were you careful about what you wished for?
3. This card is also about feeling gratitude, what are you grateful for in your life right now?

This is a great card! I think living in such a fast paced society, we forget to stop and congratulate ourselves for the little things we accomplish. There's always a bigger and better goal to reach and we often forget the hard work we put into getting that far. Everyone needs a pat on the back every once in a while, even if it comes from yourself!
