6 of Cups: Co-Dependency

This card is known in tarot circles as the ‘nostalgia’ card, it is the card of ‘sentiment’ and co-dependency. Those six cups are brimming with watery emotion just waiting to spill over.

The number 6 of the card is just past midpoint, and enough emotional currency has been built up, but we fear that we will lose that which we have. When we commit to loving it makes us open and vulnerable, we become almost childlike. We are secure but fear it can be taken away.

If this card comes up in the ‘what crosses me’ position of the Celtic Cross, and the question is ‘Why will my boyfriend not marry me?’ then the answer could be you are being ‘far too needy’. You need to look after yourself first and foremost.
