Waves of pleasure - Margarete Petersen’s Six of Cups

Six of Cups (trimmed): ©Margarete Petersen Tarot
Margarete Petersen’s Six of Cups is another glorious seascape (in my eyes). Waves that lift you up and carry you in the warm of the sun… or as she says, “a wave, pleasure, harmony, and love”. It brings back childhood memories literally (playing in the sea) as well as conjuring up that sense of feeling safe and secure as a child.  One of the questions she poses in the LWB book asks about the role of prayers and sayings, and how they might still work now – so if there’s any darkness at all associated with this card, this might be it – working out what no longer works and letting the wave carry it away. So yes, a card of healing or restoration, as well as reconnecting with innocent pleasures.

Waves lifting, bringing
warm memories from below,
held by happiness.
