Six of chalices - confused?


I'm very new to Tarot and I bought the Fey deck because it's one of the few Tarots decks that I actually love the artwork for.
I've had a few successful readings which were interesting and I'm trying to study one or two cards a day not as a reading but just wandering through the pack and picking a card out that I'd like to work with.
What I do is look at the card and describe the scene, then relate that to what it could possibly signify. Then I look up the meaning in the book and see how my interpretation compares.

Obviously I'm observing the Fey deck with completely new eyes and don't have the influence of other decks and their meanings because I've never studied them and to be honest at this point I don't want to study any other decks at the present time. Once I do that I'll end up trying to go in different directions and I'll end up learning nothing.

Some cards I'm on the right track and some I'm a bit off base. The six of chalices has totally thrown me off though. I thought that because she is holding an egg and she has white eyes perhaps indicating that she is blind, she doesn't necessarily understand how close she is to dropping the egg as she is holding it so lightly or she may just topple off the chalice altogether and shatter many of the eggs below.
I thought maybe this could hint at hidden dangers or pitfalls or seeing but not seeing what is really there but I read that it's actually to do with the past and childhood events which is about as far off base as you can get.

I guess I'm curious to know what others made of this card.
