I deeply dislike this interpretation (widely held) of the nine of cups as the Wish card. Is that really what they tell their clients clamoring for fortune-telling readings? Your wishes will come true? Codswallop.
I'm reminded by this card just how much real work is involved to make wishes come true. Nothing wrong with daydreams, as long as we admit what they are and acknowledge to ourselves they won't happen until we rename them goals and get off our lazy bums.
"What a wonderful life I've had! I only wish I'd realized it sooner." ~ Sidonie-Gabrielle Colette 1873-1954
