Six of Cups

Six of Cups

Today is a day for pleasant thoughts and communications, courtesy of a harmonious aspect between Mercury and Venus.

The Mercury / Venus sextile — in curious, inquisitive Gemini and warm, gregarious Leo — is all about cooperation and compromise.

And the Six of Cups — this version comes from Jennifer Galasso’s gorgeous Crystal Visions Tarot — speaks of innocence, sentimentality and memories from days gone by. You may be missing someone, longing for the comforts and companions that have gone by the wayside over time.

You could also hear from an old friend unexpectedly today. Someone who’s been on your mind and who reaches out across the miles, reminding you of long-forgotten events that come rushing back in a wave of nostalgia.

You may also feel the urge to reach out to those who remind you of life’s simpler pleasures, such as a family member or a childhood friend. And if you’re lucky enough to be surrounded by loved ones today, you should have no problem recapturing those memories.

It’s also a good time to surround yourself with children — your own or someone else’s. Seeing the world through their eyes can help you to recapture the innocence and wonder that comes from seeing things in a different light, and not allowing yourself to become jaded by life’s small disappointments and letdowns.

This is not the time to bring old grievances back to the forefront. It’s time to focus on pleasure, playfulness and joy, and working on creating new memories with those you love.

You may have been taking life too seriously and find yourself needing 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 is about sharing and bringing the happier memories from your past forward to today.

Today you may find yourself surrounded by friends and loved ones and reminiscing about the past.

Whether you’re physically with those who are near and dear or just revisiting them in your memories, you’re likely to taking a trip down memory lane.

The Six of Cups — Tulips in this version, from the charming Rabbit Tarot by Nakisha VanderHoeven — speaks of innocence, sentimentality and memories from days gone by. You may be missing someone, longing for the comforts and companions that have gone by the wayside over time.

You could also hear from an old friend unexpectedly today. Someone who’s been on your mind and who reaches out across the miles, reminding you of long-forgotten events that come rushing back in a wave of nostalgia.

You may also feel the urge to reach out to those who remind you of life’s simpler pleasures, such as a family member or a childhood friend. And if you’re lucky enough to be surrounded by loved ones today, you should have no problem recapturing those memories.

This is not the time to bring old grievances back to the forefront. And there is some danger of that — courtesy of today’s Sun square Pluto transit. It’s time to focus on pleasure, playfulness and joyb, and working on creating new memories with those you love.

You may have been taking life too seriously and find yourself needing 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 Tulips is about sharing — like the Rabbit in this card — and bringing the happier memories from your past forward to today.

Dreams of yesterday and the past may be with you just now as you find yourself lost in nostalgia and of times gone by.

An old friend or lover may come back into your life and reconnect with you. Alternately you may feel the urge to reach out and touch someone from your past.

The Six of Cups speaks of memories from the past being triggered today. Possibly by an event — a song that reminds you of days gone by, a scene from your childhood, or a scent that comes wafting back and conjures up feelings of nostalgia.

Children may figure prominently for you and the thoughts of your own childhood be triggered by their presence.

Fun times and playfulness abound for you.

You will feel light hearted as if you don’t need to worry about anything and in doing so you can throw from you  worries that have been burdening you lately.

The ferns on either side of this card bring up an image of using your imagination to get what you want.

The cups stacked in the middle bring back memories of childhood play and innocence. And the antiquated photograph is a reminder of days gone by. If you are used to meditating and visualizing what you wish for then this is a good time to do so.

Do not let the past hold you back because in the past there are many lessons which can propel you towards a future that you can only dream of.

Magician

ARIES: Magician

The Magician card is all about bringing your talents to the table and putting them to good use.

Perhaps you have been looking for a job or thinking of changing your occupation. If so it would be wise for you to sit down and assess exactly what it is you can bring to the table of any new employer or occupation you are chasing down.

This doesn’t need to be about you finding a job: it could be that you’re thinking about expanding your knowledge which makes you a little more employable and more valuable in the job market.

You may really be wishing to change jobs but are a little hesitant as you don’t think you have all that a new employer is looking for.

If this is the case think again because the card of the Magician is a strong indicator of a new job, change in careers and if you are happy in your current job it may be that you are about to be given more duties to perform.

Focus on the hands in this card you will see that one is pointed to the earth whilst the other is pointed to the heavens suggesting that you are aspiring to something great yet also grounded enough to see that you cannot just take a big jump and land in that greatness without a bit of preparation.

 

Ask the Astrologers: Is He Gone for Good?

A client whom we’ll call Tara, wrote in with a question regarding her long-term relationship which ended abruptly in November. She writes:

As the new year looms, I’m looking around and still confused and shocked at what has rolled out in the past few months.

My now ex boyfriend broke up with me after a long term relationship during which we’d made constant plans for our future. We purchased a home together and got a dog, were talking about combining our 401Ks, discussing marriage, etc.

About a month before we planned to get engaged, he started becoming more and more distant and when I pressed him on it, he got defensive and withdrew further.

He ended up breaking up with me, and I’ve since moved out. I was completely blind-sided by this and am still reeling over what seems like a selfish and impulsive decision.

You may feel the urge today to reach out to those who remind you of life’s simpler pleasures, such as a family member or a childhood friend.

The Six of Cups speaks of innocence, wonder, sentimentality and reminiscing about the past. You may be missing someone, longing for the comforts and companionships that have gone by the wayside over time.

You could also hear from an old friend unexpectedly today. Someone who’s been on your mind and who takes you on a trip down memory lane, reminding you of long-forgotten events that come rushing back to you in a wave of nostalgia.

This card is also about fantasy and make-believe. Notice the young girl in this card hosting a tea-part among her imaginary friends. Along with her treasured childhood toys there are birds, fish, fairies and elves.

Five of the six cups are teacups and the sixth is a golden vessel on an outcropping by the stream.

There are symbols here of abundance (fish), emotions (water), and luck (the 6th golden vessel). But it’s the sweetness and sincerity that stands out the most.

This is also true of memories — especially the happier memories — which tend to take on softer hues when we look back on them with longing.

Venus enters Cancer today bringing along with it a change of direction from the recent weeks where it has been in Gemini alongside a rather difficult Mercury retrograde. Emotions switch from the intellectual slant of Gemini to the more accepting and comforting qualities of Cancer.

If you think back over the last few weeks and if you could do anything differently or take back any words you said in the heat of the moment… what would it be? You may be finding you have a tendency to re live and re play over events just now and come up with solutions to them especially if they are linked to your love life which Venus rules.

This card shows that you can tend your garden (your “thoughts”) and prune out those that are not serving you well whilst at the same time replacing them with thoughts that will add to your growth and the growth of other ideas you may be having.

There is a tendency to reminisce today and the danger that may come with this is that you reminisce over negative experiences and give power to them. If you catch yourself doing this… or starting to do so… then stop and replace these negative thoughts with positives which will serve you better and also help with possibly mending any bridges with others who may have been casualties of Mercury’s recently bedlam.

You may feel as if you are being pulled back in time today although from the look of this image on the Six of Cups, being pulled back in time may not be such a bad thing after all.

With the gorgeous underground water environment as your playground and no swimming against the tide seen you can just enjoy yourself amongst your friends and family… with family possibly meaning those of a similar nature to yourself.

The new moon today forms a trine to Mars and as Mars has been possibly causing all types of setbacks and problems recently this is like a breath of fresh air and one that you should take advantage of given that the new moon falls in the sign of Gemini… a sign known for its intellectual agility.

Another area you may wish to reassess within your life today is where you “fit”.  The image on this card implies a wee girl floating around, having fun and allowing life to take her wherever it will and as she is within a water environment her emotions will be playing a large part as to how she is feeling. However, you do not want wish to allow your emotions to rule you entirely… although it might be fun for a while to feel that free and easy.

You may also wish to keep in mind that Mercury enters the sign of Cancer today where not only thoughts of your past will be running around your mind but also words you may wish to say to someone that you didn’t quite get the chance to complete whether from events in their life or your life holding you back.

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.

Wheel of Fortune

ARIES: Wheel of Fortune

You seem to be standing on quicksand within a situation that keeps changing.

Try to gain a sense of balance for yourself within this and don’t lose any of your power by trying to follow what others are doing or not doing.

If you find yourself trying to extricate yourself from the situation which is swinging from good to bad and around in circles take a look at the 4 figures trying to balance at the bottom of the card.

What looks like strength is actually a bit precarious when you look closely and see they are all looking and/or facing in different directions.

Each of these directions gives a different view of what you are facing.

Each of these directions gives you a different answer to what you should do next.

And each of these directions only shows you a glimpse of the whole situation.

Stay still and wait for things to settle down so you are not being thrown off your balance.

Ace of Swords

ARIES: Ace of Swords

The Ace of Swords stands for intellect.

It gives you a fast paced way of thinking and is good for study, thinking ideas through thoroughly and making plans.

You may experience a myriad of thoughts this month and who can tell where they will lead you but one thing is certain if you keep your wits about you and think clearly you will come up with new ideas for old problems along with a different way of executing them.

Words can cut like a knife, they can also heal when applied correctly.

If you have anything you have been wanting to say to someone and have not been sure of how to say it you may find that this month your thoughts lead you to a new conclusion in how to best present your argument in a way that it will be heard.
