Six of Cups as a Daily Tarot Card

Picture yourself in a boat on a river
With tangerine trees and marmalade skies
Somebody calls you, you answer quite slowly
A girl with kaleidoscope eyes…

There’s a reflective, dreamy kind of mood about today that will find you drifting off into the past, remembering events, people, places and perhaps a time when life seemed a little easier. Or harder.

As we move through life, we change along the way because of our life experiences and through our own choice. Who you are today is not who you were yesterday, hopefully.

You may find yourself reflecting on that today, who you were, where you’ve come from, what you were like way back when….

Many of you will find yourselves simply drifting into an dream state, a mini trance, if you will. This is most likely to imagine a different life than this one. There’s likely to be no thought processes about this, this is a visual thing – snatches of a film reel of the life you’d rather have.

And you can have it, you have to plan, prepare and take action.

Which is a tall order for one day and not the message from the 6 of Cups. The proactive message from the 6 of Cups from the Revelations Tarot is to turn your daydreaming into a productive method of achievement.

“If you can dream it, you can do it.” ~ Walt Disney

For today, this may mean preparing for an important meeting; a job interview or telling someone you love them. The message of the 6 of Cups is to revisit a time in the past where you successfully achieved the very thing you want to right now.

If you’ve never done this thing before, you can tap into a time when you did succeed at something similar. The energy, dynamism and confidence from that successful event will be a wonderful ally in your approaching task today.

And if you were thinking of something bigger, turn those stills into a full on action movie with you in the leading role.

Visualising is a powerful medium – make sure you’re directing yours and not drifting into La-La Land.

Song lyric from Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds by the Beatles.
