The Six of Cups is represented by six golden cups filled with white five-pointed flowers. A young boy holds one of the cups and seems to smell the flower in it.

The boy is offering this cup to a young child who stands in front of him. The background is a bright one indicating the overall happiness that prevails in the air. The small child represents the past while the other one is representative of the future.

Their connection is the symbolic representation of the happy reunion of past and future. The white color of the flower represents purity of mind and the five points signify the five senses. The children derive pure pleasure by indulging in nostalgia.

At a distance an old man is seen to be walking away taking away all worries. The house in the background assures security and comfort and the barren garden reminds of the happier times from the past.

Upright Position: This card radiates an aura of joy. It holds the beautiful moments from the past, scope of the present and dreams of the future. It makes a person crave for child like unadulterated joy and happiness. In a reading this card means a trip down the memory lane or meeting an old friend or being reunited with romantic partner. It also indicates sharing and mutual support.

Reversed Position: Reversed, the card indicates that the subject is struggling to break free from a trauma of the past. She/he may be looking forward to erase bitter memories of days gone by. Sometimes it indicates a breakup and the resulting disillusionment that prevents from focusing on the present and future.
