Any which way

Except for the six cups this card does not follow the traditional interpretations I have found in most decks, especially all that follow the RWS depiction.  Kris Waldherr gives us: memories, nostalgia, children which I don't find in the card at all.  I see six cups filled with wisteria and the emblem of Venus on several of the cups.  Harmony above and below would be a better description which is a general interpretation of the number six in numerology.

In all the sixes at least in the Rider Waite-Smith deck we see responsibility or service to others.  I have noticed that there are three people in each of the RWS sixes; which is a curiosity.  So then in this card the designer harkens to two sets of three, accident or design? 
Maybe I am overthinking all the imagery and just need to fill my house with cups or vases of flowers and enjoy their sweet fragrance.  That would serve me.

  1. Perhaps you are overthinking this but I enjoy reading your observations very much.

  2. We used to grow cut flowers as a sideling. In season I had vases filled with flowers all over the house, even the bathroom. None in the laundry now that I think of it:)

    1. Years ago when I had a bigger yard I had flowers everywhere and could bring some in. Lovely. Now I have just a little patch with a few pots. Tomorrow I think I will stop at farmers market and indulge myself in some fresh cut flowers and as you say place them all over the house. Lovely

  3. Wisteria flowers hang down like grapes instead of growing upward. And the vines are so strong they can pull down structures they grow on if the vine is not continually cut back.
