Mystic Monkey: The 6 of Pentacles

Finally, another Pentacles card! We haven’t gotten many of these so far, so show me the money! 👛😉

Today’s tarot card of the day is the Six of Pentacles:

If the Three of Pentacles showed us an initial stage of accomplishment and the Ten of Pentacles depicted the end of that cycle, where goals have been achieved and wealth accumulated and bestowed upon the next generation, then the Six finds us midway between–where we’ve just amassed enough to not only feel comfortable, but there’s enough to go around. As we look at this nobleman standing over two kneeling less-fortunates, we see he holds a scale in one hand as he doles out money with the other. This shows the balancing of his scale, which likely tipped more in his favor just prior to removing the excess for others’ benefit. He’s maintaining an even flow of giving and receiving.

So, this card encourages our generous spirit; we need to recognize when we’ve been blessed and bountiful and can afford to share our abundance with others. While the card literally depicts coins, and Pentacles do generally represent our material world, depending on context, this could represent an abundance of anything, really, that gives us a sense of security. There’s intangible wealth to be spread, too, if there’s anything we can do to help those in need, even if it’s just offering some of our time or advice.

Conversely, we could be the ones in need. Maybe we must learn to accept help when it’s given. We might be on the receiving end of someone’s charity or a loan that we can work hard to pay back someday. Or maybe we’ve become overly dependent and need to balance those scales on our end by not taking more than we give. It’s possible, too, that someone’s patronizing us and trying to make us submissive. It really does depend on the nature of your question and where this card may fall in a spread (as well as if it’s reversed).
