Tarot Project: Ill-Dignified Six of Cups

The Six of Cups is a card of nostalgia. It is shows that the past lingers and still effects the present. Last time we saw this card, I wasn’t sure how to interpret it. I feel like we are all constantly effected by our pasts and shaped by them in ways we can’t understand, even when we try, being too close to be able to see clearly. As the Six of Cups is inverted today, the card holds the connotation that there are issues of the past that hinder the present. Nostalgia at the price of enjoying life. Lessons experienced but not learned.

Without going into too much detail, my partner and I are in the middle of an argument. The argument started yesterday, and we have so far failed to resolve it. An interpretation of the card could be that it signifies this argument, that the disagreement of yesterday is hindering us still today. Of course, it could also stretch beyond that. Our disagreement stems from a difference in how we communicate; an issue which pops up every now and again. Perhaps the card signifies how we have not resolved this issue in how we communicate. Going beyond that, my partner has some unresolved issues with his father. Again, not going into detail, sometimes things I do unknowingly triggers memories from his childhood, memories which cause a lot of stress and anxiety in him. So, the card could refer to any of these things. It’s reminder is the same, however. The past is the past; use your history as a guide, but live in the present.
