Six of Cups
Today may see you feeling nostalgic and reminiscing about the past. An old friend from afar may suddenly and unexpectedly feel the urge to reach out to you, or you may be compelled to do the same.
The Six of Cups speaks of memories and past associations, returning to long ago places (if only in your mind).
Often times a much-loved song or an old photograph or a familiar scent will jar your memories and have you longing for a simpler time.
This beautiful card depicts a stained glass cathedral-style window (which is the theme for this entire series). A blue sky with clouds make up the background, from which six chalices are organized vertically in pairs.
Two blue angels spread incense from the corners, while each set of chalices pours a luminous rainbow substance into the next.
The author of this deck, Luigi Scapini, calls this “the fruit of ancient experience.”
You may have been taking life too seriously and need to get in touch with your inner child. Or you now may have to let your guard down and allow yourself to trust again — especially if you’ve been trying to guard your heart from pain.
The Six of Cups speaks of recapturing the openness and innocence of childhood. And remember: just like the beautiful cathedral window on this card, if you try to shut out the dark, you’ll prevent the light from getting in too.
The card used for today’s Tarot Scopes is part of the Il Tarocco delle Vetrate series by Italian artist Luigi Scapini, distributed by Dal Negro. This is a rare deck that is currently out of print. For more information on how to purchase most of the decks used on this site, please visit out Shop.

I don’t remember if it was the 16th, but I kept having a thought to reach out to someone to ask for their help. I was hesitating for months because her and I were not ideally close although long story short I now understood how she felt when she reached out to me to apologize several times because of our interactions with each other. It felt good that she responded, but I’m hoping it was sincere on her part that she will help me. I hope so. It takes me a while to get things sometimes, but if she wanted to talk in person she’d know how sincere I am to put the past behind us. I’ll let her make decision if she ever wanted to have lunch and talk to forgive each other. I’m thankful that she responded and hoping it is sincere. Hoping for the best!
It can never hurt to tell someone you’re sorry. You may not get a response. and if you do it may not be the response you’d hoped for. But letting someone know you’re sorry and that perhaps you see things differently now can never be a bad thing.
