The scene portrayed in this card looks kind of unreal. Like a dream. There’s all those golden colours for a start. And the lead characters are unusual. Can you see how small they look compared to the cups? And what is that funny hat the boy is wearing? They put me in mind of the Little People of myth and legend. Either that or they’re children. The castle guard and thatched cottage in the background only adds to the whole fairytale feel. This card whisks you back to the past, back to childhood.
Cups are feelings and here you have a boy and a girl interacting in an intimate manner. Reminds me of first love: When everything has a golden glow. When you look deeply into one another’s eyes. When he still gives the girl flowers, lol. The Lovers card is numbered six as well.
When you get the Six Of Cups you may find yourself walking down memory lane. Which can be a positive and/or a negative experience. It’s great to rehash the good ol’ days but not to get stuck there. Good to catch up with an ex but not to e-stalk him. I’m a terrible sucker for living in the past myself. What about you?
