The Six of Cups reversed helps us to let go of our past troubles and into memories of better times. We have a chance with this tarot to look for the good in our worlds.
Remember – happiness is something that can come back at a moments notice if we would just allow it.
The Six of Cups Reversed
Let’s consider our past. We’ve all had times when we were very happy, but the past paints tend to overshadow this. Yes, it’s easier to remember those bad memories.
The pathway towards finding inner joy is through finding those moments of happiness that we experienced. Even if this is something recently like an unexpected gift.
For many of us, that’s our childhood days. At those times we were young, wild and free. We had next to no responsibilities and were able to tread our own path.
Now in our adult lives, we’ve let that ambient light shine lower. Essentially, we’ve guarded ourselves from experiencing all that we’re able to.
Let’s look more closely at this tarot card. For the Six of Cups reversed, we’ve used the Rider Waite tarot deck for our analysis of this meaning.
There are children on this card. One child in particular is receiving flowers. Remember as kids when we played in the garden and the bliss we experienced? This is her experiencing such wonder right now.
In such gardens, there were things there to protect us. Often our parents looking over us and a fence to keep animals away. On this tarot card, we can see a guard and castle in the background.
From here, children are able to be creative, to laugh, to play and really go wild while feeling secure. Essentially – this is where they thrive in their own world view of optimism and encouragement.
Children also believe that this joy will continue throughout life. For the most part, unfortunately, it doesn’t.
We need to let go of the baggage that holds us back. As long as the basic needs of self are met, we can really thrive in this world as these children clearly are.
From here, we can start focusing again on our dreams, ambitions and craft. Those things we envisioned for ourselves during our younger years.
“What did you want to be when you grew up?” is a popular question asked at spiritual festivals and yoga events around the world. Why? It brings us back into a place of flow, understanding and connection. More importantly – our inner-most happiness.
Unfortunately, this return to bliss doesn’t happen for most adults. They’re stuck! This is despite having a roof over their heads, food on the table and a secure life (for the most part…)
Abandoning our dreams commonly happens. We were built to thrive! To come to this earth built with the tools, strategy and mindset to get almost everything we always wanted, if we only were to let go of the bagge that holds us back.
This is your chance to finally begin letting go and get closer to the things you want.
A new light
There is much hope to be found in our present moment. Let’s think about it: Humans are living in the best time in history to be alive.
Wars are at an all time low. Information is literally at our fingertips (You found this tarot card meaning online in 5 seconds!) and more opportunities to create abundance available than ever before.
What’s missing is adjusting the light. We need to see more of the good in the world, as well as the good in ourselves. The thing that holds us back is those bad experiences.
Such damaging times will come again if you let them. Remember the Law of Attraction teaches us that we only manifest more of the things we think about.
Each day is a new day. A chance to start something fresh. A blank canvas if you will. You’re the artist and it’s time to create something new, once you’ve cleaned the page.
The universe is with you, as are those closest to you. You’re simply very close to unleashing those floodgates of abundance and towards the happiest times of your life.
Feeling secure and grounded is the play for adults. Children for the most part aren’t grounded or secure, but they bring with them divine joy and happiness.
When you have both – unencumbered – then life shines. For you – that can begin today.
