When the 6 of Cups in upright position appears during a tarot reading it can also represent meeting up with someone significant from your past. This can either be an old friend, colleague or family member who you’ve lost touch with over the years. If you’ve been thinking about getting back in touch with a specific person from the past, the Six of Cups is encouraging to do so as long as you intuitively feel it is what is best for you. 

One important thing to remember, when asking your tarot cards ‘yes or no’ type of questions, is to keep a few key aspects in mind when it comes to formulating the question you want to ask.

Keeping these specific aspects in mind will surely help you to get the most accurate answers from your cards!

Six Of Cups Reversed: Yes Or No?

The Six of Cups in reversed means ‘no’. It represents feeling stuck in the past and not able to decide where to go next. The Six of Cups in reversed indicates finding it difficult to jump into the unknown which often results in holding on to past experiences that feel comfortable and safe. 

The Six of Cups in reverse indicates that a strong sense of nostalgia has gotten the upper-hand. This longing for experiencing a (specific) part of the past again can ultimately lead to feeling stuck and not truly living in the present moment to seize the beautiful opportunities laying in front of you waiting to be discovered. 

When the 6 of Cups in reversed position enters your tarot reading it can be taken as a clear sign to take a moment to pause and reflect on the past and find positive things and aspects you’d like to take with you into your future. Clinging on to the past for too long is not recommended, but being able to look back and appreciate the positive experiences that have helped you turn into the person you’ve become today can be very useful and insightful.

Focus on the positive and create your own pathway towards success with all your unique experiences, characteristics and talents. Learn to trust and appreciate your individuality and have faith that you can achieve whatever it is you set your mind to. When you feel the need to take a break and relax, please allow yourself to do so. However, try to be alert on not getting stuck reminiscing about the past and do encourage yourself to move forward towards your ultimate dreams and desires. Taking a small step everyday will get you further than you can imagine.
