Happiness - Reminiscing - Rewards - Enjoyment - New environments - Serenity
This card is quite a wonderful blessing if you feel as though life has been demeaning of you recently - other times, though, this card warns you that you may be heading towards a situation where you are out of your depth.
You may be enjoying the moment without consideration for the consequences of your actions. Memories of naive happiness feelings & memories from the past will resurface in the present, at times this seems to indicate that while we may look upon the past with a happy eye, we must avoid living in it.
You will have the opportunity to take on responsibilities and put things in order in your life to allow positive new beginnings to flourish.
The Six of Cups can also mean that you are be returning to a familiar place. This could be your hometown, an old friend’s home, a school, or any place that holds a lot of meaning for you. You are seeking to reconnect with people from your past. Bringing back old memories reminds us of our childhood, a time when things were simpler.
Living in the past - Forgiveness - Lacking Playfulness
The reversed 6 of Cups is often a card about looking back on how things "used" to be. This is sometimes connected with children or childhood. The reversal suggests that you are rightly beginning to pay more attention to the future, rather than the past.
You may also begin dealing with some issues that you've been avoiding with regards to love. If you are in a committed relationship, things that you had "swept under the rug" to keep harmony may resurface and need to be dealt with soon. If single and longing for love, the time has come to look at yourself and what you are doing (or not doing) to bring that love into your life. Love won't just fall out of the sky; you do have to make an effort.
