|6 of Cups, Tarot Illuminati by Erik. C. Dunne|
I've spent most of today pondering the 6 of Cups. It's been going through my head all day could it represent forgiveness? Laying some ghosts of the past to rest is it were?
Doing my daily spread tonight with a question with regard to regrets I may hold on to in my life, my third card was in the position for what I need to do to forgive myself.
The card I pulled was the 6 of Cups. Now to me the cards have basically confirmed my quandary. I see this as going back in my thoughts, to the younger me and forgiving myself. Also to offer the gratitude to those people that taught me lessons in life, both good and bad.
I do believe that even those people that have brought us pain and heartache all had a lesson for us to learn. They may even have given us a legacy which is full of joy (one of my exes brought untold despair and suffering to me, however, I had 2 beautiful children with him, for which I cannot thank him enough). The lesson he taught me was about self love and honesty.
I feel the image of the card was clear enough to show me this as the person in the background looking down towards the children, feels as if this is me now. The children, innocent and unaware of the watchful figure are lost in their exchange with each other. The girl looks to me as if she is explaining something to the young boy, who listens intently.
I have recently been working on forgiveness and accepting my part in past situations in my life, that i feel had a particularly negative effect on my, so this card seems so relevant with the theme and my musings today.
In visualisations, when working through the forgiveness issues, this is exactly how I see it in my mind. It is how I imagine forgiving the younger me and the people involved
I feel it was a nice bit of synchronicity to pull this card today, and it shows me that this deck and I are getting along very nicely, hopefully it will keep showing me more and more as I ask more from it.
