The Six of Pentacles, card of wealth and poverty; of finding a reprieve from the harshness of the five. As the five can be seen as multi-elemental, is the six then really all about money? Can the ‘wealth’ be something other than the material?
“Through the Laws of Reciprocation I accept the success that comes to me through my efforts and through the natural flow of energy of give and take. I embrace the spiritual gifts that accompany my success. I hear the messages from beings of a higher plane that direct me to a warm and safe place of comfort and love and continued abundance.”
The 6 of Pentacles as a Daily Tarot Card
Whether you see the 6 of Pentacles as help and kindness coming your way, or whether you see yourself as the benefactor, one thing is certain – it’s always wonderful to see this card.
No matter what your role is in this exchange, it shows the milk of human kindness and if you’ve had your faith in humankind dented lately, rest assured that events today will go a long way to repair that.
If you know you can help someone today, do it. Whether it’s financial help, sharing knowledge, providing transport or supplying emotional support – if the Universe brought them to you, help them.
Likewise, if you need help in any way, know that your prayers have been answered and help is on the way. It may not be in the form you expect or hope, but the fairness and balance that comes with the energy of this card brings exactly what you need.
In the words of Lauryn Hill:
What you want might make you cry
What you need might pass you by
If you don’t catch it,
And what you need ironically
Will turn out what you want to be
If you just let it.
The message for today is Reciprocity. Whether you’re giving or receiving, you’re still receiving the other, but you have to be open to do either.
To give makes you joyous, to receive makes you thankful.
It’s a win-win for everyone.
Lyrics from Lauryn Hill – When It Hurts So Bad – from the album, The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill.
The 6 of Pentacles as the Tarot Card for the Week
This will be a week of give and take, of coming and going, of giving and receiving. You may not feel that you have a lot to give, in monetary terms, but the smallest of gifts or kind gestures are worth more than you may realise to those who need it. The reciprocal nature of this card means that you will find satisfaction in your giving.
In mundane terms, as well as windfalls, won contracts & a general boost to your coffers, money comes in one hand and leaves in the other. Watch your spending this week and apply the Rule of 24 before you buy that sassy item you just can’t do without – wait 24hrs, revisit & review. Do you really need this item?
There may also be a shift in the weather this week so make sure your home & gardens are prepared for the coming winter. Make sure the elders of your family & community are also taken care of in hearth & home.
Achieving balance in all things this week should be your top priority, but pay particular attention to your bank balance.
