Six of Pentacles

The Basic Meaning of the Card (Rider-Waite)

The card shows a wealthy man giving coins to two poor people, symbolizing that he is sharing his wealth and helping them in need. This card indicates that it is a time for giving and receiving, as well as being grateful for what one has.

Upright Meaning

It can also mean that you are in a situation where you are receiving help from someone else. The card encourages you to be thankful for what you have and to share your wealth, both materially and emotionally, with those in greater need.

Reversed Meaning

When the Six of Pentacles is reversed, it may indicate that there is an imbalance in how you give and receive. Perhaps you are being overly generous and sacrificing your own needs, or maybe you are reluctant to help others even though you have the means to do so. It can also mean that you feel dependent on others’ generosity and need to work on becoming more self-sufficient.
