Some depictions of the six of cups invite us to consider our childhood or look at our past through the lenses of nostalgia or innocence. The Six of Cups can sometimes represent the idea that we are looking at the past through rose-colored glasses. But I especially like this representation of the Six of Cups. It invites one to go deeper and consider how our Roots impact us. What threads from our past and our ancestors’ paths root us now? This can be rooting that is grounded. But it could also be rooting that keeps us from growing. It is probably a mixture of both. Consider the rainbow of colors that make up the roots in this image. They invite us to consider the complexity of what makes us who we are.
