Six of Pentacles Tarot Card Meanings
A well-dressed merchant balances gold upon the scales as he dispenses gold coins to the outstretched hands of others below.
The Six of Pentacles brings gifts and sharing. It can signify someone being generous to you through a present received, a pay increase at work, or a charitable gift. Sometimes it represents the flow of money, both in giving and receiving, money being paid or shared out, but generally it tends to bring about improvement in financial circumstances.
In certain circumstances it may show that you are the one being generous to others, although usually it represents a ‘gift’ you receive.
If reversed, it may represent being selfish or uncharitable, debts or obligations not being met.
Similar or supporting cards: Ace of Pentacles (gifts of gold)
Opposing or contradictory cards: Four of Pentacles (withholding) Five of Pentacles (financial lack)
Six of Pentacles Tarot Card Combinations:
There are five cards that can all represent an increase in finance, so in large spreads (such as the Life Spread) watch for the appearance of the Ace of Pentacles, Six of Pentacles, Seven of Pentacles, Nine of Pentacles and Ten of Pentacles, the more that appear the more the message is reinforced and intensified.
