The Nine of Cups represents the final stages and completion of something. It is often during these times that we struggle finishing something we have started. Personal integrity may be an issue, or we may have issues from our past that pop up to cause self doubt. Sometimes we find it hard to complete something, because our heart is not in it, or perhaps we have a fear of success. Either way, it is time to address these issues and either put in the hard work necessary to complete what we have started, or to abandon it in favour of something new.
