Tarotka Minor Arcana: Six of Cups

Six of Cups
This is the card of simple pleasures, fond memories, and nostalgia. There’s a certain amount of small joys that children have that seem to get lost as people get older. This hearkens back to that time – it’s not wistfulness, per se, since that would indicate a certain sort of discontentment. Instead, the looking back on this card is remembering the good times to help you through the bad.

Inversed
When inversed, nostalgia turns into rose tinted glasses – being convinced everything in the past was great based on unrealistic memories. This leads to an attachment to a non-existent past, which can be detrimental. You probably have heard all the jokes about old people who think everything was better back in their day – and of course, now we have people convinced everything was better back in the 1800s (so long as you were super rich. And ignored the syphilis).
