Suit of Cups
The suit of Cups represent the summer months of June, July, and August. This suit's associated element is Water, and if seeking a geological direction in a reading, Cups represent the West.
Cups show outward emotions and desires, and pertain to love, feelings, and close relationships.
The 9 of Cups is considered the "wish" card, and when it appears in a reading a wish will be fulfilled. Other cards in the reading also need to be considered to determine the way in which the wish comes to pass, and possibly how soon. The 10 of Cups in a reading is known to some as "the realization of the wish", and can bring amazing rewards, depending on other cards in the spread.
