Reversed Nine of Cups as Intentions

If you are asking about someone’s intentions towards you, and you draw the Nine of Cups reversed, that means this person intends to question the missing piece in the relationship. They initially thought your relationship was perfect. But right now, they think that you two have grown apart from each other. Perhaps you have been so preoccupied by your daily schedule that you forgot to spend quality time? You need to get to the bottom of the issue if you don’t want to sever the connection.

The Nine of Cups reversed as intentions means that they think that the relationship is not helping them grow as a person. They have heavily invested in the connection at the cost of their own development. They focused so much on the relationship. However, they forgot to address their personal needs. They need to do the necessary introspective work because not doing so will result in negative consequences for the relationship in the future.

For singles and those embarking on new relationships, the Nine of Cups reversed is a sign of them intending to question the authenticity of the bond between the two of you. You are the perfect companion for them, yet they lack the courage to give you a fresh start. There’s a part of them that’s convinced there’s something they’re missing. Don’t get it wrong; this has nothing to do with you. This person may need to do some inner work or let go of unresolved issues in the past before they can enter a new relationship.

For existing relationships, the Nine of Cups reversed represents an intention to grow individually and separately from you. You were initially in high heavens because the relationship seemed to have been moving towards a positive path. However, it has gotten to a point where you question if you two share the same spark and intimacy. You don’t spend as much quality time any more. The way to resolve this issue is to be honest with the unmet needs.

If you are asking about an ex’s intentions, the Nine of Cups reversed shows that they intend to consider a reconciliation after they resolve their internal conflicts. One significant reason why your relationship ended is because your ex lacks the maturity to handle the relationship. They did not grow as an individual. They need to do a lot of inner work first before they can become a better partner. Otherwise, you will end up in the same situation again.

In the context of whether or not a relationship is headed for commitment, engagement, or marriage, the Nine of Cups reversed means that this person’s intentions are clouded with doubts. You two look like they were meant to be together. Your partner, though, feels like there’s something lacking from the relationship. The doubt prompts them to realize that you have a lot of ground to cover before you can take your relationship to the next level. This groundwork consists mostly of doing some personal work on each of you. It’s time to be honest with your significant other about these differences and discuss your wants, needs, and expectations for the relationship.
