Notes on: The Six of Cups
Artist’s Notes :
Think back to a moment in your life when everything felt perfect. Chances are you can remember the feeling even if you didn’t know it at the time. Moments like this exist best in memory. We replay it to the point where only certain details are clear but hey we need those moments. Perhaps even this moment will be a snapshot moment later on for you.
About the Archetype:
Cups deal with our emotional nature including love, both that as in a relationship between two (and rarely more) people and that of friends and companions. Sixes represent balance and harmony. Mix balance and harmony with love and you end up with one of those magic moments. You know, the kind that you want to remember and take out and replay in your mind because you know it will help keep you going through the rough times. Love is and you are and the universe is right and good and nothing can take these moments away. Memories of them can heal you during rough times. Knowing that they are possible can keep us going until the next one.
Sun in Scorpio – This energy involves powerful sensual feeling and transcendence, One of its symbols is the phoenix rising from its own ashes. The energy is passionate, sexual, and consuming. Few things are as memorable as making passionate love with someone who has entered your heart. The Sun in Scorpio energy involves depth of experience and depth of learning and knowledge.
In a Reading:
When the Six of Cups turns up in a reading, it usually signifies an unusually happy time. The happiness of this period usually stems from a feeling of loving and being loved. This may have to do with past memories being rekindled tho it can also be a time for making new lasting memories depending on where the card falls in the reading and the other cards involved. This is a time that will be remembered for its feeling of peace and balance no matter how long it may last.
When the Six of Cups is reversed in a reading, it is possible that for various possible reasons, tho it is a happy period in our lives, we are unable to see it. It can refer to someone who is so focused on the future, that they forget to enjoy the present moment. The reversed Six of Cups may also refer to unpleasant associations from the past
The past is a key part of how we tick. When we have a cherished moment that means a lot to us we tend to seek it as a standard. In the eyes of Time, many warriors found their passion in the heat of war. The drive and adrenaline made many memories imprinted us going forward. These moments may have moulded us but they were there because we needed them.
After the peak and passion, everything must decline. To define the good the bad must occur that way we appreciate those golden times. Persist and you will find your next peak just don’t let the past define how it should be.
