My thoughts- This card reminds me of the happiness of childhood. Picking flowers and playing with friends. Every cup in this card is filled with what I’m assuming are white lilies. The two children are in the town square. There is on person in the background… reminding me that I was never without supervision as a child, especially in public.
The book- Although we do have happy memories, sad memories, and every sort in between, the Six of Cups is about the pleasant ones. The role those memories play in our current lives depends on circumstances. The memory in question can be from the distant past or it could be one in the making. Like all the cards, it must be read in context.
The Universal Waite Card- is a scene of sweet and gentle kindness. The white flowers in the ups symbolize innocent pleasures and gifts without strings. The image may strike some as being too idyllic or overly sentimental, leading some to read this card as romanticizing the past.
Core Meaning- Happy memories.
What are some of your happy memories?
