The Six Of Pentacles

Meaning of the 6 of Pentacles
The 6 of Pentacles depicts a rich guy in a red robe giving coins to two beggars kneeling at his foot. He maintains a balanced scale in his left hand, symbolising justice and equity. This card represents financial stability and kindness, implying that you will generously share your assets and success with others. However, it also refers to experiencing the kindness and comfort that comes with receiving much-needed help. The Six of Pentacles is a card that represents both sending and receiving. You are on the offering side at times and the receiving end at other times.
The 6 of Pentacles Upright
You may be just like the rich guy on this card, generously exchanging your money with everyone. You’ve amassed a sizable fortune and are now in a situation to improve those who are in need financially. You love the positive emotions involved with supporting people and donate generously through voluntary contributions, tithing, or crowdfunding. Especially if you don’t have a lot of money, you give your time, resources, compassion, and encouragement to those in need, trusting that it will be valued. Sharing your time or knowledge is always almost as emotionally rewarding as donating cash or presents, and the intangible offering of your life is appreciated well enough, if not more, than the tangible benefit of your presence. You may question whether you can continue to contribute kindly to everyone else, but the good advice of the 6 of Pentacles is to believe that any gift you make is appreciated and will return to you threefold.
You may even be tempted to lend money to someone under the assumption that they can repay you until they get their lives back on track. This is a loan based on honesty and good conscience, with the understanding that whatever you give up will be returned to you. However, keep in mind that this is more like a temporary remedy than a long-term solution. So, consider whether you can financially help your relatives while still encouraging them to become self-sufficient.
On the side, you might be the recipient of many other people’s hospitality, gratefully acknowledging these presents. This will assist you in regaining your footing and ultimately repaying the charity trust or person, either with your time or your newly regained money. You’ll still need to think about how you will become a little more self-reliant in the long term. Accepting charities carries the risk of being focused on it and unable to provide for yourself. Be sure you’re not obedient or needy as a result of someone else’s generosity.
Eventually, the 6 of Pentacles is a card that symbolises financial stability. The numbers coming in and going out are balanced, and you are grateful for what you have and willing to share it with those who are less fortunate.

Alternatively, you can assist others, but they do not give it back and demonstrate a lack of respect and appreciation. It’s a one-way lane, and you might feel as though they’re using you. If you can’t make some other party change their opinion or make them return the favour (or the money owed), you can benefit from the situation and refuse to assist in the future.
If you’re having trouble yourself, be mindful not to over-commit to those who need your assistance. You might have a habit of spending or giving away more money than you can manage. While having a charitable heart is admirable, you must still be capable of supporting yourself when serving everyone.
