Meaning of Six of Cups from the Rider Waite Smith Tarot Deck Deck

Upright

A card of the past and of memories, looking back, as--for example--on childhood; happiness, enjoyment, but coming rather from the past; things that have vanished. Another reading reverses this, giving new relations, new knowledge, new environment, and then the children are disporting in an unfamiliar precinct.

Reversed

The future, renewal, that which will come to pass presently.
