Meaning

The Six of Pentacles is all about financial balance and sharing. There is a clear tie to charity; whether you’re in a strong financial situation and are helping out somebody else, or are struggling and are relying on another for support. If you are in a strong place financially right now, don’t be afraid to look around for others who may be struggling and offer them a helping hand. This is usually a close friend or family member who is going through a difficult period and could really benefit from a little assistance. They may be too shy or even proud to ask, but offer and they will likely accept gladly. If you are in a tight spot, you may receive a charitable contribution from somebody close to you. Treat this as a short-term solution and as a springboard to get back into a good, solid position.

Reverse Keywords: Wastefulness, debt, stinginess

Reverse Meaning

The Six of Pentacles tells a tale of a one-way street when it comes to money. You may have lent somebody money, expecting it to be paid back but are still waiting. This is a message to be careful who you trust and not to let people take advantage of you and your generosity. On the flipside, it may be you who is struggling to pay back money you owe. Perhaps you have gotten yourself into too much debt and your outgoings are much higher than your incomings. You are in over your head and feel like you’re drowning. Now is an important time to look closely at your finances and figure out where you are going wrong and what you can change to improve your financial situation.
