Falling into error, complacency, vanity and self indulgence. Shortage of money due to spend thrift tendencies or loss of credit cards. Sentimentality and an overlooking of the faults in others which can lead to abuse of hospitality.
The nine of cups is a card of satisfaction and wishes. Now, when it is reversed, it suggests that you may be disappointed that your wishes are not materialising. Perhaps there are a lot of desires that you have and hope for from this life, but there is some frustration because these aren't being fulfilled.
A further element of this card is that the man is seated, looking smug that everything is already around him. Your wishes may not be materialising due to some inactivity. You need to get up off that seat and get those dreams you really want.
In the reversed position, the Nine of Cups can point to disappointments due to imperfections and mistakes, smugness, overindulgence, greed, superficial or materialistic values, shallowness, gluttony, and excessive preoccupation with gratifying your own desires, often times at the expense of the needs of others. It can also indicate ill-fortune due to over-indulgence in food, alcohol, or drugs and the consequences that come with it.
It can also point to a wish that is not yet fulfilled, perhaps because it is desired too intensely or the querent is sabotaging their own efforts.
Sometimes this card shows up reversed when the person being read to is going through a depression or lack of self-worth.
Material success, assured future. Physical well being. A love of sensual pleasure. Querent will get wish. Satisfaction with life.
Lack of material goods and money. Overindulgence in food and drink. Things will eventually go your way if you really try.
