Tarotka Minor Arcana: Nine of Cups

Nine of Cups
Make a wish!

That’s apparently the nickname of this card, the “Make a Wish” card. The Nine of Cups is a sign of perfect happiness, contentment, and success – in other words, it’s a sign that wherever it crops up, you’re going to get exactly what you want. It’s a sign of an emotionally fulfilling situation – in theory, only emotional, but since happiness usually requires some material security, there’s also an element of that. So, raise your glass, blow out the candles, and make a wish! And hope this card shows up some place you want it. Of course, if it shows up, you’ll probably be happy with whatever it was signifying. That’s the point, of course.

Be careful what you wish for.

Well this is Ravenloft, of course. Your ultimate desires are not going to bring you happiness. If you’re lucky, it’s because they didn’t come true and now you’re disappointed. If you’re unlucky, you get exactly what you asked for. Which isn’t going to turn out to be what you wanted at all.
