Six of Pentacles General Meaning

The number six is a distinguished number in the Suit of Pentacles for a very special reason: it represents simplicity in abundance and fairness in the administration of justice. This is best embodied by the golden scale which the man carries as he hands over golden coins to two beggars with a smile on his face.

His clothes show that he is a man of means, wearing a beautifully decorated red robe and a hat to boot. Notice also that the background shows six pentacles distributed unevenly.

If you draw a straight line following the pattern, the image that you get is of an uneven scale, giving you a conscious compulsion to try and correct this flaw. This upsetting feeling is that innate desire for justice.

It’s a desire that makes you reflect in great detail whether or not you’re distributing your resources equitably. Of course, resources can’t just mean money-- it can also mean your skill set, social connections and even your personal affection for other people, all of which you can share in order to help not just yourself but the larger world around you.

. As such, this card appeals to your desire to help and love for justice, to create a more tolerable world for you and everyone else to live.

Six of Pentacles Upright Meaning

Drawing and seeing this card in your tarot table means that you are a revered person with honest designs and a charitable heart-- and it symbolizes the desire to do more for the common good. In a world that forces you to compete, it can be very difficult to notice the injustices that happen all around you-- people not having their basic needs, or friends feeling anxious about not being as good as others.

To counteract these, you need to contribute to the world’s betterment by sharing your talents and helping others, not only because it is the moral thing to do, but because it advance you as a person too.

Love Meaning - Six of Pentacles Upright

With the Six of Pentacles comes an awesome news for you and your partner: your relationship shall prosper to the point where you’re able to share your blessings with other people. Both of you are fueled by a sense of justice so great that you never resort to needless indulgence.

You are also aware of the plight of the people around you and eager to help them by donating to charities. It’s rare enough to find a lasting relationship, but it’s even rarer and more refreshing to find one that actively helps the world.

Wealth Meaning - Six of Pentacles Upright

Financial managers such as yourself need to note the importance of equity and fairness in all your decisions. This doesn’t even have to be about other people; when managing your finances, you have to make an important balance between wants and needs.

It’s okay for you to have fun, but don’t overdo it and make sure you still have your eye on the ball. Similarly, treat your employees and coworkers well and reward them according to their performance at work, not for nepotistic or friendly reasons, but because they’re excellent, capable individuals.

Six of Pentacles Reverse Meaning

In the reverse position, this card represents an impurity in one’s intentions. It could be possible that a small part of you thinks helping others is only ultimately about helping yourself.

To some degree, this can seem true, but this outcome suggests caution because of what it can do to you. Every ill motive always returns to other people, and if you continue to operate with an impure heart, it could someday backfire in the harshest of ways and lead you to the point of no return.

As such, you need to reflect on your actions carefully and think about what it actually means to do right by others.

Love Meaning - Six of Pentacles Reversed

In the reverse setup, this card implies that you two may be too selfish with one another. Nothing gets done because the two of you are constantly insisting on your respective ideas.

You are proud and eager to show to the other that you have the better call. In any other setting, being competitive is a good thing, but remember that in a relationship, you are two minds working together towards a common goal.

As such, there is no sense in being domineering to one another. On the contrary, being too insistent on your position could eventually doom your relationship.

Wealth Meaning - Six of Pentacles Reversed

Likewise, for the Six of Pentacles Card in Reversed position, mismanagement is the bane of anything remotely associated to wealth. If you manage your money poorly, this means you’ll have nothing when time deems it necessary.

If you don’t socialize with your team and manage their intricacies, you will be isolated and alone, unable to contribute a lot. If you’re a boss, this means you run the risk of universally losing morale for everyone.

The more morale is lost, the higher the chances of people leaving, and therefore a huge loss in your bottom line.

Open up your mind and realize your true identity.
