If you are asking about what is the outcome of a relationship, and you draw the Six of Cups reversed, that means that somebody is stuck in the past. This could simply mean that your person is stuck in a perceived “comfort zone.” In more extreme cases, they could be stuck in a previous relationship that’s over. They may be well over their ex as a person, but they’re clinging on to the happy memories they had before things went sour in their relationship. You or your person could be obsessively trying to relive or repeat those experiences. Comparing a current partner with a past relationship is obviously not fair for the other party.
The Six of Cups reversed as love outcome is a sign of immaturity or refusal to grow up. Your person could have a hard time “growing up” and leveling up to a higher commitment. They might want to remain living a bachelor lifestyle with the perks of having a partner. This person is struggling to mature. In some cases, your person may have a hard time accepting the very normal and natural process of maturing due to ageist societal pressures, or they’re experiencing a mid-life crisis. If they’re younger, there may be some issues with arrested development.
If you are wondering about a potential relationship, the Six of Cups reversed as love outcome means one of you could be very jaded. Perhaps a negative past relationship experience left one or both of you deeply traumatized. Being scarred by relationships is totally understandable and normal. However, it is unfair to take something a previous partner did to us on a new partner. Drawing this card in reverse suggests that while this relationship has potential, some healing needs to be done first. You or your person need to heal past hurts before pursuing this relationship.
If you are in a new relationship, the Six of Cups reversed as love outcome means one of you is still stuck in the past. You or your person haven’t moved on from a previous experience. This doesn’t necessarily mean your person isn’t over their ex. It could simply mean they wouldn’t touch their ex with a 10-foot pole, but they’re so haunted by what their ex did to them, it’s making your current relationship suffer. You or your person could be obsessively trying to recreate a past relationship instead of creating new, fresh memories. If you’re on the receiving end of this behavior, know when to walk away and find happiness with someone who can love you for just being you.
If you are in an existing relationship, the Six of Cups reversed as love outcome means you’re no longer having the fun that you used to. You also could feel less tender and attentive toward one another. This doesn’t mean your person no longer loves you. They’ve probably just gotten into a routine. If this is not the case, just let your partner know that you miss the sweet little things they used to do. Alternatively, one or both of you are holding grudges about a past experience.
If you are currently in separation with each other, the Six of Cups reversed as love outcome means your person is stuck in the past. If you are separated by distance, your person is unwilling to make any changes for you, especially not relocate and move to a new location. Your person could have strong emotional ties to their current location. They could have grown up in their current location, or their friends and family are all there. Compromise, transparency, and honest discussions need to be had with your person. If you are inquiring about an ex you’re interested in reconciling with, they’re stuck on you, but in an unhealthy way that might not be helpful in healing your relationship.
