Six of Cups ~ Embrace Life's Pleasures!
Tarot Tuesday! The card for the week is the Six of Cups, representing: Enjoyment, generosity and emotional renewal. This card has been showing up a lot in my own readings, and is a welcome one, for it signifies a new richness in emotional exchanges, both in familiar relationships, and in one’s relationship with day to day life.
The Six of Cups indicates a heart opening. As with any opening of the heart, it usually comes after some turmoil, after one is “forced” to become clear about what is truly important. The realization often gained is that, no matter what, at the end of the day, the most important experience is that of being loved and the ability to give love in equal measure. And with this realization comes a feeling of vibrancy and excitement about the possibilities ahead. And a feeling of gratitude.
The Six of Cups reminds me of Dicken’s A Christmas Carol. The day after Scrooge is visited by the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Future. He awakens from his nightmare reborn; jumps out of bed and joyfully shouts: “Merry Christmas to All”! He opens his purse (and heart) strings, sharing his wealth, because he has learned the great joy that comes from generosity and sharing with others. His old self has died, and a new self has emerged.
This card indicates a time to open and generous with your love. If this makes you feel vulnerable, remember that vulnerability is essential to the experience of true love. Consider yourself like a child reborn, innocent and willing to take to risks with your heart, knowing that you are safe in the process.
Then, go out into the world and enjoy life! This is often the best way to express your gratitude!!
