Six of Cups Upright Draw Meaning

When you draw the Six of Cups, it can be assumed that you’re yearning for the chance to get back in touch with your childhood memories. Those halcyon days are long gone, and now you’re like the adult headed towards the turret, where your responsibilities await. If you need inspiration, then you can indeed look to those positive notes of the past. You mustn’t get so lost in nostalgia that you lose sight of the present.

The Six of Cups also points to your inner child. There are two types of people: those who have a problem inner child and those who don’t. The source of many issues, like addiction, depression, dissatisfaction, and poor relationships, can be connected to a displeased or traumatized inner child that cannot let go of what happened to them. If you can work with this inner child, you can understand who you’re as a person. Once you begin to forgive and move on from past trauma, life will become much more authentic and robust.

The last message of the Six of Cups might be the most obvious. Are there children in your life? Could there soon be a child in your life? Perhaps, if you’re without children, it would be wise to spend some time around them, since kids have a way of viewing the world with new eyes. It could be a wonderful experience.

Six of Cups In Love and Relationships

Because the Six of Cups deals with thoughts, it is not as easy to understand as other cards in the suit. You might be reflecting on the past, such as when you and your partner or past flings first met. You might be wishing you could go back to that time. It is possible that nothing is changing presently in your relationship so you’re looking to times that were more satisfying. Remember, past lovers rarely come back with good intentions.

Six of Cups In Career And Finances

Work might be getting boring of late, but that doesn’t mean you up and quit. Instead, you should allow yourself some time for creativity. When you have a spare moment, draw, paint, write or try scrapbooking. Engaging in these creative pursuits will help you feel refreshed and will have a positive influence on your work. This is going to lend itself to your investments as well. Look at what used to delight you in the past and put some money into that–whether it is stock in video games, antiques, or something retro. You will be surprised by the results.
