Years ago, I read the 9 of Cups was related to the 9 of Hearts, which was considered the Wish Card in playing card fortune telling. So Iâ€™ve always thought of the 9 of Cups as the Wish Card. When it comes up, I get excited and act like Iâ€™ve just blown out the candles on a birthday cake and my wish is going to come true.
More recently, I read in the Pictorial Key to the Tarot that the Ace of Pentacles was the most fortuitous card in the whole deck. I generally donâ€™t put much stock in Arthur E. Waite (mostly because I cannot understand what he is trying to say), but I grabbed a hold of this meaning and have used it ever since. The suit of Pentacles is my favorite, after all, and the Ace is filled with so much promise and opportunity. I was happy to associate such a great meaning with that card. Whenever it comes up, I, again, get all excited, and act like someone just gave me a gold lamp with a genie in it.
Do you have any quaint or unusual meanings for cards or card combinations that you use just because it pleases you to do so?
