Are you a super 80’s fan? Does a string of syntho beats and neon headband send you flying into a dance flurry. Did you see Rock of Ages before it even hit Broadway? Do you hunger for legwarmers and parachute pants? Does a mullet secretly look attractive to you? Do you still do the Maniac dance when no one is looking? Don’t feel ashamed. Your 80’s obsession is exactly the feeling expressed by The Six of Cups Tarot card.
The Six of Cups is a card of remembrance and nostalgia. The Six of Cups card represents a walk down memory lane. If the Six of Cups card appears in a love reading, it means you’ve rekindled an old flame or met a sexy someone you instantly connect with.
You meet an old friend for lunch and though years have past, it feels like none? This is a Six of Cups feeling. You meet a potential lover and it is as if you’ve known them for years, even though you’ve only just met? This is a Six of Cups feeling.
This Six of Cups feeling of comfort and nostalgia is why music sampling and retro style remains popular. Our subconcious is attracted to what is familliar.
The reason we dig 60’s, 70’s, 80’s or 90’s nostalgia is because it brings us home to the decade we were living in when our hormones popped and we were becoming adults. The music and pop culture surrounding moments of our life our “firsts” . . . our first kiss, first prom, first day of high school, first time driving, first time breaking curfew, first time doing it will always be connected in our psyche.
Next time a song comes on the radio and you are overcome with memories of the past, connect that feeling with The Six of Cups card. Know you are having a Six of Cups moment . . .
Think American Idol and America’s Best Dance Crew are original ideas? Go back to the 80’s. Remember how you sat in that theater and rooted for the underdog while they scraped to the top via music and dance. Think Flashdance, Dirty Dancing, Breakin, Stayin Alive and Purple Rain to name a few.
