Reversed Six of Cups as Feelings

When the Six of Cups is reversed, it means that this person is feeling like they are stuck in the past. They are taking their feeling of nostalgia too far. While taking comfort in the past is good, it can also be a detriment to future growth. They could feel like they wish that things would go back to the way they used to be, rather than finding a solution that works in the present. 

This person may also be feeling like things have become boring, repetitive, and stale. Perhaps they have taken on so many duties, obligations, and adult responsibilities that they no longer feel in touch with their inner child. 

For singles and those in new relationships, the Six of Cups reversed is a sign of feeling stuck in the past. They are not ready to let go of the past and fully embrace the present. They may be hung up on an ex or a past relationship. They are clinging to what is familiar at the expense of new growth opportunities. They are scared to move forward, because they are terrified of the unknown. Until they let go of their past, it is going to be difficult for them to be a full participant in a new relationship.  

For those in committed relationships, the Six of Cups reversed is a sign of wishing things could go back to the way they used to be. Your partner may be feeling like things have become boring, repetitive, and stale. They are thinking about how exciting it was at the beginning of your relationship. Perhaps they are starting to feel like your relationship is becoming more of a duty and an obligation. Now is a good time to inject some newness and spark into your relationship. Talk with your partner about your shared vision and values for the future. What can you look forward to? How can you encourage them to express themselves and their inner child?

If you are asking about an ex’s feelings about you, the Six of Cups reversed means that they are still hung up on you. They are feeling stuck in the past. They are finding it very difficult to move forward in their life. They are constantly dreaming about how things used to be between you two. If you are wondering if it is possible to reconcile or get back together, it definitely is. However, keep in mind that for your relationship to truly blossom, you both need to be forward-looking. 

In the context of whether or not a relationship is headed for commitment, engagement, or marriage, the Six of Cups reversed means that they are more focused on the past than the future. They feel like the relationship is comfortable and they don’t see the rush to move forward. In a way, they are scared of the future. They are scared of stepping up and taking on more responsibilities and obligations. Until they confront their fear of the future, they will not be able to move forward in the way that you want.
