Six of Cups as Intentions Tarot Card Meaning Sibyl Tarot

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.

Reversed Six of Cups as Intentions

If you are asking about someone’s intentions towards you, and you draw the Six of Cups reversed, that means this person intends to reject the future. They do not intend to focus on having a more positive and happy future like upright Six of Cups suggests. They only care about the past, and nostalgia becomes a detriment to their current life. They intend to constantly think about their childhood and pay no attention to the present. They do not intend to think about relationships, but rather how good things used to be in their life.

The Six of Cups reversed as intentions means that they lost purpose in life. They lack intention. They look to the past for joy. They fail to find happiness in the present with you. If they change their outlook on life, they could find enjoyment in a relationship with you. However, their focus is on how easy things were as a child.

For singles and those embarking on new relationships, the Six of Cups reversed is a sign of them intending to reserve themselves. They overlook the opportunities right in front of them because they are stuck in the past. They intend to spend their days reminiscing on what could have been instead of what is. They must make an effort to change their intentions in order to start a new relationship. If you are single, finding someone else may be a better option.

For existing relationships, the Six of Cups reversed represents an intention to return to the beginning of the relationship. Things have changed throughout your time together, and they miss your interactions when you first met. Passion may have died out, and they miss the thrill of the unknown before. Intend to spark something new or freshen up the relationship. This could be new conversation or an exciting activity. At this point, the relationship feels like an obligation for your partner, and it affects their intentions for the future.

If you are asking about an ex’s intentions, the Six of Cups reversed shows that they intend to trap themselves in thought about you. The reversed Six of Cups is all about wallowing in the past. They do not intend to move on in their lives without you. They miss the golden age of your relationship. Getting back together is a completely realistic possibility.

In the context of whether or not a relationship is headed for commitment, engagement, or marriage, the Six of Cups reversed means that this person’s intentions are in the past once again. They cannot think about the future. It is not part of their intention. They cannot intend on marriage until they get over the past. This is not something you can help them with. They must improve their intentions if they hope for happiness in marriage.
