I. The upright meaning of 6 De Coupe Tarot
Two rows with each row have 3 cups facing each other around an axis; it is the recognition of self-respect in the noblest sense, with sincerity, acceptance and internal contact with divine love.

This is a comprehensive love that includes reason, heart, and instinct.
6 De Coupe Tarot is the card of childhood, nostalgia, naive happiness and generosity. You want to return to the good memories of the past, whether as a child, teenager or adult. Often, however, these memories belong to the past and reflect aspects of your life that have disappeared. You may think that the only way to relive this happiness is to escape from the past to feel these happy and beautiful memories, instead of facing the present challenges.
That is alright when you remember the good old days but it is more important to live in the present and accept the current situation rather than go back. Oftentimes, there is nothing wrong with reliving the good times to help out when things are not going so well. In the midst of change and crisis, this card means that considering what you have endured is a good way to make sure that, no matter what the next events, you will face and overcome them.
After the pitfalls, this card means you have to take the time to heal, to look back to the past to remember all the good things.

Once you leave the past behind, the road ahead will be very bright and worth looking forward to.
It can also represent a return to a familiar environment or a place of childhood. You can go back to your hometown, your parents’ home or even your old school.
