Appearing reversed, the 6 of Cups indicates that outside forces and sources are the main focus for a sense of happiness and well-being. It is time to look within, rather than outside of yourself, and a time to do a great deal of soul-searching.
The Six of Cups reversed indicates being haunted by an unhappy past, to the extent that the present cannot be fully enjoyed.
Reversed, the 6 of Cups can signify a reluctance to face up to changes in a relationship or in a domestic situation. You are asked to concentrate on the positives and adapt as best you can. If you find the arrangements or changes to be totally to your disliking, you are given the opportunity to leave the situation all together.
