For today I've drawn the Six of Cups from the Crystal Visions Tarot. A woman is coming out of a pond filled with Lilies and Cups, leaving a small child behind. The child urges her to take a cup with her but the woman declines,smiles to her and walks away.
This card is all about sweet childhood memories and nostalgia: about reminiscing or worse clinging to the past. The child represents our inner child, the one who longs for reassurance, safety and being cared for. But that time has past. The woman has to move on into the unknown.
There is nothing wrong with remembering the past and spending time with happy memories as long as we don’t get to attached to them or expect them to be more than just memories. It is also important to keep our inner child happy but this can be done by taking her out to play or making a messy free flow painting as well. Giving her new experiences instead of reliving the old ones. Even our inner child has to grow and to be challenged otherwise she will be suffocated in a pond full of memories.
