What does the Six of Cups mean?

February 26, 2019

RWS 2.0 Six of CupsHere is a pithy meaning (or two) for the Six of Cups:
When we were young, time was on our side.

A corollary for this pithy meaning is the sad reality that some of us look back, wistful and melancholy, and we find ourselves envious of younger people, people who we see as taking their youth for granted … just as we did. In fact, this is so common that it spawned the truism: “Youth is wasted on the young” (which we may see as another pithy meaning for this card).

This is a rather downbeat meaning for the Six of Cups, which is typically viewed in a more positive light. Consequently, this can be seen as its meaning when it is in a reversed orientation or a problematic position in a reading.


Note: Each of these pithy Tarot meanings is just one facet of its card. Find more of them on my Card Meanings page.  Also, get my Pithy Tarot Book and LIKE my Pithy Tarot Facebook page!
