Learn the meaning of the Six of Pentacles Tarot card
The Six of Pentacles, also known as the Six of Coins, represents two beggars, just like the Five of Pentacles. This time, however, they are not left alone with their problems, but can count on the help of a man dressed in red. He is holding a scale in his left hand, which symbolizes justice, but also prudence. With his right hand, he gives the Pentacles in his possession to the person wearing an orange robe, while the other one, wearing a blue robe, waits in the same position for his turn. Both of these people have their hands out, indicating that they are waiting for some kind of support or alms. And indeed, the Six of Pentacles itself in Tarot indicates giving and receiving some help, but also sharing with others what we have. The card itself foretells events related to receiving rewards, especially material ones. The rich man standing over the beggars, on the other hand, alludes to having control over money, and they themselves symbolize a sense of security and receiving a kind of award, but also commands patience.
The Six of Pentacles in an upright position is the sign of a very good period of financial security. Most often, the card itself indicates the receipt of social assistance or some kind of grant, but in fact it can apply to any situation in which you receive material support. This will be due to the favor of a certain person, who has money ready to give out. The Six of Pentacles in upright position is a sign of a way out of financial problems, which began with the Five of Pentacles. However, for this to be possible it is necessary to find a balance between the ability to give and take. This also applies to other aspects of life, such as relationships, where dysfunction in this area is very common. For this reason the Six of Pentacles in an upright position may speak of a certain kind of dependence on another person, or giving someone more than you receive. However, the Six of Pentacles in an upright position will be a positive response for practical matters such as health. In every situation it encourages balance and moderation.
The upright Six of Pentacles carries positive news in matters of love. If you are currently in a relationship then the upright Six of Pentacles says that you can count on the support of your partner. You may also find that in certain situations you have to offer the necessary help to the other party. However, whether you are currently in the role of giver or receiver, your relationship is generally characterized by kindness and generosity. This allows you to achieve your goals together, helped by your ability to share your finances, which will improve considerably in the coming period. The Six of Pentacles in an upright position also indicates an ability to show affection to each other, which builds your relationship. However, when interpreting the meaning of the Six of Pentacles in this position, it is essential to pay attention to the need to find a balance between your expectations and your efforts towards the other person. Show your gratitude, but also remember not to abuse someone's generosity. For singles, the upright Six of Pentacles heralds a time when you can expect your feelings to finally be satisfied. Open your heart to others and you will receive what you need from fate.
The reversed Six of Pentacles is a card that in its meaning usually indicates an imbalance. It concerns both material and emotional matters, in which no doubt, when you see the Six of Pentacles in your hand of cards, expect a disproportion between what you give and what you receive. If the Six of Pentacles is reversed in your question, know that even if you receive from someone what you currently need, it will not be a gift, but rather a debt that must be repaid. The card under certain circumstances may also portend loss especially through unsuccessful and suspicious business transactions. Very often it indicates that someone is taking advantage of your position and opportunities. The reversed Six of Pentacles is a card of dependence on a person who is in a more powerful position than you. You need to be especially vigilant when taking advantage of this person's favors and generosity, as there may be ulterior motives behind them, or even deception. In case of the reversed Six of Pentacles, it may also turn out that you are the person who has a decisive influence on the other person and the current situation, and you shouldn't use your advantage for bad purposes.
In questions related to love, the reversed Six of Pentacles indicates existing problems in the relationship, which are largely related to abuse of one's position. Very often when this card falls there is also a difficulty in maintaining a balance between the commitment of two people. This can result in a situation where your efforts are not appreciated by your loved one, or they expect much more from you than they are willing to offer. This situation can also result in some sort of emotional or financial dependence on the other person, which in turn can lead to feelings of being trapped and dissatisfied. The Six of Pentacles reversed suggests that you try to bring your existing relationship into balance, so that both of you can experience a sense of being needed, but also understood. The Six of Pentacles reversed may also tell you that you show too much affection towards someone, or that you take advantage of someone's naivety for your own benefit. Sooner or later this situation will lead to a time when one of you will try to break free from this dysfunctional relationship. The Six of Pentacles reversed encourages you to be prudent in your actions and avoid extremes. Don't let others abuse your trust, but don't underestimate what you receive from another person.
