I. Image description on Nine of Cups Mermaid Tarot
The witch hums a long-lost incantation of the sea as she mixes and stirs the effervescent mixture in the nine cups in front of her. When she cast the spell, the sun was still hanging overhead, but now it has sunk into the darkness of the ocean, leaving the light she creates to be the only source of light.
The spell she chants brings a smile to her face as if reminding her of a time when she was a mischievous and adventurous mermaid. That is the source of energy that she uses to put in her wine glass. Mesmerize each cup with seeds of joy, love, and wonder. But who will drink the water in those cups? Only the witch of the sea knows. She looks for people who possess the potential to explode and a fire of recklessness but must be accompanied by a heart of compassion.

IV. Meaning of Nine of Cups Mermaid Tarot in the reversed position
Not everyone agrees with the witch’s magic. Not everyone believes her and she alone can choose who can or cannot sip the drink from her magic glasses. Such figures hide in the caves and crags around her workplace filled with jealousy and indignation while their mouths keep asking “Why not me?”. Those who live in that darkness do not take pleasure in the blessings of others, instead, they are drowned in their stubbornly jealous ego. In the end, their ingratitude will make them small and insignificant, leaving them with nothing but pain and despair.
In a general context, the reversed Nine of Cups Mermaid Tarot is not a great omen as it can represent broken dreams or wishes turned into nightmares. You may have achieved what you wanted but now realize that it is not what you expected. On the other hand, you may have gotten what you wanted and then lost it and are now feeling the devastation it can bring.
The Nine of Cups in reverse can represent unhappiness, misery, and lack of fulfillment. It can also imply negativity or pessimism. You may feel frustrated or disappointed when this card is reversed in your Tarot reading. You may also have trouble achieving your goals, lack achievements, or feel that you are not getting the rewards or recognition you want.
The card can also be a sign that you are lacking confidence or have low self-esteem. This card in reversed position can also point out problems such as eating disorders or addictions due to low self-esteem and feelings of unhappiness. On the other hand, it can show arrogance or conceit and emotional immaturity.
In terms of work and finance, the reversed Nine of Cups Mermaid Tarot is considered a negative energy source. Maybe you expected that your new job position would give you the motivation to move forward, or that the business in your new field would gradually stabilize. However, things are far from what they originally looked like, so instead of feeling satisfied at the beginning of a new milestone, you feel depressed and overwhelmed with disappointment.
In terms of finances, the image of nine reversed cups shows that you have not yet achieved stability and self-control in spending. However, the key to the above problem is patience. Therefore, focus on the resources available at hand to be able to position the target more accurately.
In terms of romantic relationships, the reversed Nine of Cups Mermaid Tarot shows some problems. On the surface, things still seem to be developing in a positive direction, but deep down, intuition still tells that something seems to be not quite right. There may be a lack of closeness between two people in a relationship or a deeper spiritual connection. Therefore, this is the time for both of you to sit down and talk to each other to solve all the remaining questions.
The upright Nine of Cups usually indicates a great feeling of satisfaction knowing that everything is working out the way you want it to. However, in the reversed position, you feel that something is still missing and you still have not really gotten what you want. That disappointment can be rooted in mistakes caused by complacency, excessive indulgence, material greed, shallowness, and self-centeredness without concern for others.
In addition, this card also reminds you to also work with yourself to actively heal past hurts. Because entering a romantic relationship does not mean that you have seen through the darkness and do not need to work with yourself anymore.
In terms of health and spirit, the reversed Nine of Cups Mermaid Tarot can be seen as a sign of an eating disorder such as anorexia or bulimia. If you are experiencing any of the above problems, seek professional medical help immediately so that you can find the root cause of the problem. In addition, this card also implies unrelenting disappointment. It seems that you are letting the negativity overwhelm your mind. Try to stay positive and find your own entertainment.
Spiritually, the reversed Nine of Cups may show that you may be feeling a lack of spiritual fulfillment and are looking for outside ways to fill this void. True fulfillment comes from within, so you should turn your focus back to the spiritual side and focus on discovering your spiritual path.
