Six of Pentacles: Predictive Tarot Card Meaning

The 6 of Pentacles is a card of sharing. Often, this card represents giving or receiving financial assistance, but in some cases it can symbolize generosity with love, feelings, support etc.

Typically, the 6 of Pentacles predicts charity being given and received. If you are in financial hardship and have received the 6 of Pentacles you will be given a chance to recover. Perhaps you will be given a bank loan or get help from a friend or family member to cover your costs for the time being. If you re doing well financially then you will be the one to give assistance.

It is possible that the 6 of Pentacles represents gifts and presents. Of course engagements can come under this interpretation but so can birthday gifts so try not to get too excited.

In some cases the 6 of Pentacles can mean that you must take initiative. Extra hard work and keenness to get the job done will not go unnoticed by those around you or other people in your industry. This is one of the few occasions when I would recommended do a little bit of ass kissing so that you can get what you want.

Although the above meanings sound rather promising there are more sinister interpretations associated with the 6 of Pentacles. Firstly, you should worry about your financial situation; why would you be in the predicament that someone needs to help you out by giving you money? Secondly, the 6 of Pentacles can represent someone in your life who only sticks around out of pity which is, of course, not a good sign.

The Six of Pentacles’ Historical Meaning

The 6 of Pentacles was read pretty much the same in the past as it is presently but the card’s emphasis was different. In modern times, the interpretation focuses on charity but in the past the 6 of Pentacles mostly represented presents, gifts from loved ones etc. making it a rather lovely card to receive (in ancient times Pentacles and Cups were nearly always read favorably while Wands and Swords symbolized something more sinister). 

The Six of Pentacles in a Love Reading

The 6 of Pentacles is rather good for love readings. The card means that your partner (or future partner) is willing to support you into the foreseeable future, especially if the 6 of Pentacles appears in an outcome position. Your lover will be generous with you and always consider your feelings.

If you’re wondering how someone feels about you, there is the possibility that they think they have to protect you and your feelings. They feel as though they have to put a little extra effort in, be considerate and go the extra mile. Whether this is a good or a bad thing depends on if the general air of the reading is a positive or negative one.

I will say, however, that there is this theme of impermanence in the 6 of Pentacles. The card represents charity and giving for now but that doesn’t mean that this will continue into the future. That’s not to say that your relationship wont last the long-term; it just means that you should enjoy the present because you don’t know what tomorrow might bring.

The Six of Pentacles in a Business Reading

I don’t feel like the 6 of Pentacles is not good in a business reading because it means that you will have to seek out financial help for your business. If you feel like you can make repayments great but if not you could end up biting off more than you can chew.
