“I don’t know half of you half as well as I should like; and I like less than half of you half as well as you deserve.” —Bilbo at his 111th birthday party
I’ll take the Nine of Cups in any deck! Here, it arrives as a birthday party. Woot!
For me, birthdays are a time to reflect on what’s come before (Hello, Mercury retro!), and look forward to what’s to come. Milestones are sometimes approached with dread, but I like having check-ins, you know? If I’m not where I’d like to be, that’s indication I need to up my game, or perhaps acknowledge differing priorities. Either way, the knowledge is powerful.
And of course, more than anything else, birthdays are a time to celebrate life. Gratitude, joy, and appreciation of sensual pleasures reign.
So my Tarot advice for today is to reflect, plan, appreciate, and enjoy. More than anything, the Nine of Cups is always a card of contentment.
You can handle that, right?
