Tarot: 6 of Cups {How To Enjoy A Simple Life}

Tarot 6 of Cups, intuitivefish.com

Appreciation For Art, Beauty and Above All, Nature; Living A Simple, Country Life; Memories of the Past or Future

It’s time to get back to the childlike joy of the simple life – enjoying fine, natural pleasures.

In order to experience the beauty of life, connect with your own beauty and bliss. Fortunately, we all possess inner bliss, but we’re not always consciously connected to it.

When you accept your inner riches of creativity and sensuality, your external reality begins to reflect the same.

The 6 of Cups is all about enjoying nature, rustic pleasures and natural luxury in the form of art, music, film, good food and good company. A visit to an elegant cafe, wine bar and the art gallery might be in order. Or maybe you’re being called to live in a cabin in the woods with a claw-foot bathtub and wood-burning stove….

Sometimes it’s easy to forget that enjoying life and nature is what we’re here for, especially when we’re surrounded by cement buildings, factories, artificial food and people, and the challenges they present.

Haunting memories or mere fantasies can also rob of us our inner well-being. Instead of longing for something of the past or in the future, you can be present wherever you find yourself, noticing the simple beauty and ease of life therein. Presence is the code for eternal bliss.
