The Six of Cups is the card of childhood, nostalgia, comfort, and familiarity. The card shows a young boy leaning down and passing a cup filled with flowers to a young girl. The girl is happy and grateful, looking back to the boy with love. This shows the passing of traditions, happy reunions, and childhood innocence.
The Six of Cups reminds us that our inner child is important in a meaningful relationship. When we are with someone who we truly love and trust, our inner child will feel free to roam and play. Listen to your innermost self, as your young self is deeply in touch with your intuition. Your child self is young, but they are also wise.
If you are asking about how someone sees you, and you draw the Six of Cups, that means this person sees you as a comfortable person to be with. They can be who they are when you are with them. They are not afraid or ashamed to show you their inner child. You give them confidence. They are happy with you.
The Six of Cups means that they see you as someone they have known for a long time. You may have just met, or you may have been acquainted for years. Regardless, the familiarity is there. This only means that your soul connection is on a deeper level. You are destined to meet each other.
For singles and those embarking on new relationships, the Six of Cups is a sign that they see you as someone they have known all their life. They are happy and grateful to have known you.

They don’t have to wear masks around you because they can be their true selves. They feel peaceful and happy. They value the time you share and look forward to spending more years with you.
If you are asking about an ex’s intentions, the Six of Cups shows that they see you as someone they should get back to. They can’t stop thinking about you. They regret ending the relationship. You were instrumental in their growth. The moments you shared are priceless — they can’t simply forget about you. You may expect them to reach out any time soon.
In the context of whether or not a relationship is headed for commitment, engagement, or marriage, the Six of Cups means that they see you as a person they can’t live without.

If you are asking about how someone sees you, and you draw the Six of Cups reversed, that means this person sees you as someone who can’t give them the excitement of the present moment. They are always thinking about the past. Often, they wish they could return to a familiar time where they could be themselves. They value the past more than the present and take nostalgia too far.
The Six of Cups reversed means that they see you as someone who bores them. The excitement is no longer there. They have become too familiar with you. They see your routine as repetitive and stale. Unlike the upright Six of Cups, where they can share their inner child, the card reversed indicates this person could not show any hint of childhood in them. They are too preoccupied with their hectic schedule, career, relationships, and other responsibilities.
For singles and those embarking on new relationships, the Six of Cups reversed is a sign that they see you as someone they cannot be together with. Take note, this is not your fault. It’s just that they are too blinded by the past to see all the good things you can put on the table. They would rather cling to the past than leave their comfort zone. The fear of the uncertain future haunts them. You can’t force someone to be with you if they are stuck in the past.
For existing relationships, the Six of Cups reversed means that they see you as a dull partner. Your relationship started with passion and excitement, but now it’s all gone. The sparks and flame died down with time. You may need to sit down with your partner and discuss it in the open. These kinds of conversations should not be put on hold for too long. You need to be honest with yourselves to reignite what was dimmed. Talk about uncomfortable topics to allow the relationship to grow.
If you are asking about an ex’s intentions, the Six of Cups reversed shows that they see you as the past they are dying to go back to. They could not move on from the relationship. Your ex regrets letting you go. They always think about what happened and wish they could have done better to keep you. While reconciliation is indeed possible, both of you must realize that dwelling in the past can only wound the relationship.
In the context of whether or not a relationship is headed for commitment, engagement, or marriage, the Six of Cups reversed means that they see you as a comfortable partner. However, they have been too comfortable around you and the relationship to the point that they would instead choose familiarity than move forward. A part of them is scared about what the future may bring. This could mean they are anxious about the responsibilities of a larger commitment. Suppose you want to take the relationship to the next level. In that case, you may need to be honest with your expectations and communicate with your partner from time to time. But again, they must overcome the fear of the future to move forward.
