Six of Pentacles Tarot Card Description

In tarot numerology, Six is the number of service and protection. As it is associated with Pentacles (also known as Coins), in this case there is a likelihood of patronage of some sort. It could mean that you will act as a mentor or someone else will be mentoring you.

Upright Meaning

You are a kind and generous soul, so what’s not to like? The answer could be nothing, but on the other hand, it could be that your generosity comes with no strings, but cables, attached. The same could be said of your benefactor if it is you who are receiving largesse. Are the favours and items which you are giving (or being given) unconditional, or are they a potential weapon in a power struggle? If you are a beneficiary of gorgeous gifts, ask yourself how you feel about the situation, is your treatment fair, or is it a way to stop you seeking rewards that mirror your true worth. In relationship matters, you need to be sure that you are not trying to buy someone’s love, or alternatively, that someone is not attempting to purchase your affection. You could even find that you are given a gift you don’t really want or that offends you. The undercurrent of this Card is power, and who wields it. Beware of someone playing the victim; they may seem weak and helpless, but they could have discovered a very clever way of bending seemingly stronger folks to their will. Assuming you are confident that you are not using your position in a negative way, and that those around you are being straight forward and honest, the Six of Pentacles can be a positive card. It suggests that commercial success and all the rewards that go along with it; such as satisfaction and security, are within your grasp.

Reversed Meaning

Money! Money! Money! Is not so much your mantra as Spend! Spend! Spend! The notes and coins in your pocket seem to be on fire - such is your eagerness to throw them away. Ever heard of saving something for a rainy day? Before you invest in someone’s latest scheme, slow down, are they really all they seem, or could they be full of designs on your hard earned cash? Even if dishonesty is not an issue, be careful with any investments you make. If possible, delay doing anything for a while. Relationship matters are not favoured at this time, and there is a risk of a ‘loss’ of some kind, possibly through an argument, although there could also be an erosion of trust which sees you and a friend or lover moving apart.
