The Nine of Cups reversed indicates those same feelings of joy and fulfillment, but perhaps for the wrong reasons. Or, you’ve indulged so much that you’ve become greedy. 

Reversed Health

You’ve become a bit obsessed with your outward appearance, to the point where you’re neglecting your mental well-being. Being validated by your peers might feel good in the moment, but you won’t experience true joy until you’ve reached self-fulfillment.

Reversed Love

With Nine of Cups reversed, love is often misunderstood or expressed selfishly. You may be manipulating someone for your own gratification, whether you realize it or not. 

Reversed Money & Career

It’s really easy to get greedy with money, something you’ve quickly learned. You’re so caught up in the materialistic aspects of life, that you’re neglecting your heart. Try to move past those superficial desires if you want to find happiness.
