Even though the card shows a couple, the book says that it's an innocent love, one that doesn't demand anything back. Is it unconditional love, friendship? and how does it differ from the 2 of cups?

the 6's all have to do with unconditional love. the 2 of cups is more like aww i love you so much while the 6 of cups is more like you like each other a lot because you have things in common and i see this more of a friendship card than 2 of cups.

Hi BrightEye. The book says the flower in the cauldron is an ox-eye daisy for "innocence" and "faithful love." There's a sexualized element in the way he's holding her wrist and she's stroking his palm. Not the "childhood" kind of innocence that the Rider deck brings to mind, eh? But the ox-eye is the flower we use for the "he loves me, he loves me not" game of pulling off petals until the last one tells you...loves you or not...which is what a young person might do (whereas a less innocent person might send a text message, luv me?).
