This card could be a hanging garden, or natural beauty peeking out from under covers. You might see these flowers clinging to the wrong side of their pots. In any case, something is trying, but has not quite actualized. It wants to flourish by any means possible.
You could be losing your grip on the past, a past you have outgrown. That past might have been fertile ground for a wonderful future. You have paid your dues and things are about to turn around. Let go. The sun is on the other side. It’s okay to transplant yourself in a new place, where you’ll have room to grow into something even more beautiful.
The Suit — Cups or Hearts
The cup holds water, the heart holds emotion. Water nourishes, refreshes, revives. Emotions remind us we’re alive, give us reason to commune with others. Water can give life and take it away. Emotions can make us want to feel more and wish we could just stop feeling entirely.
This suit invites us to that place below the surface, to search for the Holy Grail, to get in touch with our creative side.
The Number — 6
Sixes represent support, communication, and perfection.
There is nothing to fear with an inversion. Mary K. Greer explains in her book, The Complete Book of Tarot Reversals, that an inverted card may be interpreted in one or more of these twelve ways:
- Blocked or Resisted
- Delayed, Difficult, Unavailable
- Inner, Unconscious, Private
- New or Dark Moon (if you are reading cards from a round deck)
- Breaking Through, Overturning, Refusing, Changing Direction
- The Opposite of the Upright Meaning, or Lacking
- Misused or Misdirected
- The Upright Meaning Backward
- A Rectification or Cure
- Magical, Unconventional, or Humorous
