Six of Cups

Bohemian Gothic Tarot Six of Cups

Nostalgia.  Fond memories of childhood.  Connecting the past to the present.

from the Bohemian Gothic Tarot:  “Innocence.  Happy memories, especially of childhood.   Indulging in simple, childlike pleasures.  Losing yourself in nostalgia and regrets.  Hiding some ulterior motive under an apparently sweet and naive act.”


Simone Simon and Amy Reed in Curse of the Cat People

Six of Swords:  Remaining serene through troubled waters.  Changes and travel.  Nightmares of the dream and physical realm.   Not being able to escape your problems.  Trying to run away.

from the Bohemian Gothic Tarot: “Getting through a hard time calmly and quietly.  Making a profound change in your life, one that will take some time.  Feeling ‘dead’ to the world.  A period of mourning for a loss.”

Pride in achievements.  Self-confidence.  Valor and bravery through tasks.

from the Bohemian Gothic Tarot: “A hard-won and worthy victory.  Taking a moment to bask in the glory.  A sense of personal achievement.  A victory won at the expense of others.  Letting a triumph go to your head, becoming dictatorial and over-confident.”


Willemijn Verkaik as Elphaba in Wicked: Die Hexen von Oz


Six of Pentacles:  Charity.  Helping others in need.  Receiving aid. Financial difficulties.  Monetary and material loss. Making a bargain you may not want to keep.  Making a dangerous pact. 

from the Bohemian Gothic Tarot:  “Charity.  Helping someone in a practical way.  Generosity.  ‘Charity’ with strings attached.  Getting control over someone with your financial support.  A caring act that is in fact hypocritical and self serving.”

  1. Reblogged this on Wild Green Woman and commented:
    I do love all the sixes in Tarot. They offer a reprieve, either by looking forward or looking back. The struggle of all the 5’s can be real so an upright 6 is a welcome treat to me.🌞🌙

  2. Hi Wildgreenwoman (love the username),

    That’s a lovely way of looking at the sixes. I particularly like the six of Cups and wands.

    And thank you for reblogging. 🙂

    The BG Six of Cups is one of the creepiest 6 of Cups in any deck 🙂 But they did that on purpose. When they were designing the deck and playing around with image, Alex had at one point put a picture of some tough old broad smoking a stogie in the headstone!!! It was hilarious. They have such great senses of humor.

  4. Hi D.D.

    Oh, I love that! I find a lot of humor in this deck. I do find the kid in the sun card totally creepy in a Village of the Damned sorta way.
