Six of Pentacles
This tarot card signals the entry of wealth and abundance into our lives. This is not unconditional, however, for it is important for us to cultivate prudence before we manage this windfall gain. We are advised to balance our fundamental needs and beliefs with responsibility, so that we may ensure our own well-being, and at the same time, be generous and charitable. We need to be judicious with our choices, as this card does not signify extravagance, but good judgment.
The biggest chunk of the Tarot deck, 56 of the 78 cards, comprise the Minor Arcana. 40 cards out of these fall exclusively under the Minor Arcana, while the other 16 also form a part of the Royal Arcana or Court Cards. If the Major Arcana can be said to convey the big picture, the Minor Arcana signifies the specifics in the life of a person. It is divided into four parts: The Suit of Swords signifies the realm of the mind and intellect, our decisions and insights. The Suit of Cups has to do with the things of the heart, things we love and care about. The Suit of Wands represents our power and life energy as applied to the situations and events we face in life. And lastly, the Suit of Pentacles represent our labours and the rewards we gain from them.
