The Six of Pentacles reversed is the card of unconditional giving to others. Essentially, you’ll discover what it means to give without the expectation of receiving.
If you want to discover the true meaning of life, we can clearly see it here.
The Six of Pentacles Reversed
In life, our wisest pursuits often don’t result in the thing we were hoping to get. This tarot card is certainly reminding of us of such errors.
Kindness and generousity is somewhat forgotten in our world. Hard work is seen as the ultimate carrier of wealth and abundance, and indeed – personal respect.
Essentially those who work hard are put on this mighty fine pedestal. You see them! They’re on the front of magazine covers and everyone knows their names. Think about the titans of business and best selling book authors.
Now let’s take into account those who have donated millions to charity. Do you know their names? Probably not. But do you know their level of happiness? It’s probably through the roof.
We’ve used the Rider Waite deck to analyze The Six of Pentacles. You’re welcome to use any you like.
Here we can see a rich mercant in times gone by. During his youthful days, he experience unfortunate poverty and starvation. It wasn’t just him either – many of his friends were also in this mode of survival.
He learned as a child that life can go one of two ways. He can either take the easy route and continue down this path of scarcity, or he can start climbing.
We don’t mean an easy or soft climb either. It’s tough to get out of such a hard situation. It’s even harder to do it out of a place of hate, frustration or ego.
In life, we need to overcome our biggest challenges from a new place. The Merchant knows this. He has two sides to himself: Today’s rich side while ackoowledging exactly where he’s come from.
He knows those who have nothing to give often have the most. They love, nurture and care for others. He sees their value when others cannot – and thus – he gives to those in need.
Give without expectation
It’s easy to judge. Heck – we live in a judgemental society! One that takes 3 seconds to fully evaluate an individual.
This is your chance to rewrite your internal code. To use your intuition instead of your own ego to see the real worth of individuals, and from there, start unconditional giving.
Because you never know who you’re really impacting when you give. You shouldn’t ever expect anything in return, but good things come to those who give.
Is this more financial abundance? Often not. The feeling is internal. Those deeds we do are karma which goes out into the universe.
You may feel happier, at peace or simply find true love and abundance. Either way – this tarot card is your reminder to rise up and give without expectation.
Compassion is key
When we help others, we actually help ourselves. Yes – there is a sense of pride and ego here, and that’s totally OK to feel guilty here.
We help ourselves by feeling compassion and pride. That we’ve done some good in the world, provided this is done from a place of no conditions. You shouldn’t expect this to come back to you the other way.
Kindness is never wasted. The world needs more of it! If you’re the one to rise with compassion, the word rallies around you.
You’ve got this! There is nothing more that the world should be getting behind in these dire times than someone like you choosing to walk with compassion and kindness.
It doesn’t need to be a monetary contribution either. Perhaps you have skills, energy or resources you could donate to your local community organization, school, church or sporting club.
Now – you don’t have to announce this to the world. In fact, it’s best if you don’t. Start off with something small and let it nurture.
As you do, you’ll feel greater on the inside. As we feel good on the inside, this opens the floodgates to more abundance.
