9 OF CUPS OVERVIEW
Floating in her visionary dream state, she sees 9 cups in front of her carrying all the things she’s been working towards. Bliss! Transcendence! Her heart explodes with love and its energy spills into the 9 beautiful vessels. All the gifts. All the love. She used to believe that these cups were put there by the Universe, and that she would have to choose between them. She used to believe that she could only have one of these things. But now she sees that they were all created by her, for her. She sees her love in all of them – her heart beats etched out in their patterning – her own joy carved amongst their jewels. Her essence seeded these gifts, and it is her own nature that allows them to flourish – or not. She realizes that her choice today is more about priorities, focus, and clear intention than about choosing one thing over another. She realizes that the world really is her oyster, and that she is being gifted the opportunity to choose which gift she wants first.
