Six of Cups

Two small children sit in a garden with six flower-filled cups. One of the childen reads a book and the other holds a bird. A small black monkey sits at their feet. In the background is a walled city.

My Interpretation: Remembrance of childhood joys.

Innocence and faithful acceptance. Unquestioning and unconditional love. A yearning for simpler times and less responsibility. But beware of nostalgia - you cannot return to the past.

(Reversed: Beware of sentimentalising the past. Was it really so much better than now, or was it more that you were too young and naive to see the world for what it really was?)

Edit notes: Different to v1.0 card as I've added more symbolism to assist readers and made it far more similar to the Rider-Waite card. The reading child is said to be a member of the Sforza family, used as a tribute to the place these patrons had in development of the Tarot in Renaissance society.
