Six of Pentacles

Rider-Waite Tarot
One should make it a habit to use the available resources to look at the cards regularly in the beginning. The more familiar you are with the cards, the better your readings will be. Let’s take the Six of Pentacles card and see what we know. As you build your own interpretations, your thoughts may differ from others. Always listen to your own intuition over other’s opinions.
Numerology: The number six refers to balance and harmony.

Elemental: The six of pentacles carries the element of earth, which represents stability and material items.

Symbolism: Some cards lack a high quantity of symbolism. The six of pentacles is one of these cards.

The scales represent balance and justice.

The man in the card offers coins to one man and a judgment over the other.
When this card shows up in a reading, it suggests that we get what we deserve.

On the positive side, all your hard work will be rewarded. Your good nature will bring you good company. Another possible meaning is a warning against paying too much attention to one aspect or person in your life, and judging another too harshly.

On the negative side, getting what you deserve isn’t always a good thing. Bad karma has a way of coming back on you. Take this card as a warning to treat others with respect and kindness.

The six of pentacles can also refer to a person, someone giving money or help, such as a banker or mentor.

The surrounding cards will help in the interpretations of the card. A reading works as a whole, with the individual cards offering support.
