The Six of Pentacles Tarot Card Meaning

The Six of Pentacles represents generosity and giving, but it also speaks to the balance of giving and receiving. The design of the card shows a wealthy man giving coins to two beggars, symbolizing the importance of sharing wealth and resources with those who are less fortunate. The rich man wearing purple robes, represents his wealth and status. He’s holding a scale in one hand, symbolizing fairness and justice, and it’s making me think of the Judgement card, which is about karma and getting back what you put out.

For those who believe that wealth is only achieved through hard work, the Six of Pentacles reminds us that abundance can be showered upon is in unexpected ways as well. It suggests that if we open ourselves up to receiving it, luck can play a crucial role in achieving financial success

To receive we must also be willing to give. The act of giving, in any form, time, resources or wealth, creates a flow of energy that allows abundance to circulate.

The Six of Pentacles encourages us to find a balance between giving and receiving, and to be open to the abundance that comes our way. By doing so, we can create a life that is both materially and spiritually rich.Most likely, you assume that in order to acquire material comfort, you must work extremely hard and for an extended period of time. It’s all blood, toil, tears, and sweat for you. You probably aren’t aware that abundance can come to you in unexpected ways. Luck may find you in more imaginative ways than you realize, just as it finds other people, but since you don’t believe you can be lucky, you won’t be. Since you mistrust that things might ever be easy, they never are. It’s a Catch-22 situation in which the rules of the financial game are always against you. Others live their lives while you work day and night. Begin to think that tremendous fortune and riches can also come your way.

The Six of Pentacles means you’re in a good position where you can help others without messing up your own stability. In general, it’s about generosity, charity, and looking out for others. Maybe you got a friend or loved one who’s really generous with gifts, money, time, advice, whatever. Or maybe you’re the one able to help people out since you got money and are doing well. This card can be about giving, cooperating, donating. So if you’re going through something difficult, it’s a reminder that help is out there – just ask! In your reading, you may feel a strong sense of community or wanting to help those around you.
Since it’s a card about power and control, if it shows up it could mean you’re in a leadership role or have the respect of others.
