Many people see this as the wish card. Indeed the man has worked very hard and has enjoyed all the benefits as the cups are empty. Instead this card can inspire people to follow their dreams, and is a success card.
The cups are lined up in order as a reminder success is possible, but it does take work. However, he is alone, so consider if success is lonely, is it worth it?
The cups are lined above him, which indicates this is what defines him, yet there is a look of relief and satisfaction. On his journey things were not easy, but the rewards came eventually. The nine card denotes the end of a project or phase, so maybe a material deal has been agreed or a relationship has worked out after a difficult period.
