Tarot card for this week ~ The 6 of Pentacles (6th – 12th July 2020)
Your Tarot card for this week is the 6 of Pentacles. This card is all about giving and receiving and finding balance.
The other term used in some Tarot decks is the 6 of coins. Very often pentacles/coins are seen as representing money, and while it can mean or signify money, as a reader I read the cards from a spiritual/intuitive point of view and for me the 6 of pentacles is about a flow of energy, giving and receiving and finding a balance between the two.
At first glance what you see in the card is someone giving coins to another but If you look more closely at the card you will see the outline of the continuing flow of energy between the two hands. What is given should be returned in some way to complete the exchange. This doesn’t necessarily mean if you give out money for example that you will receive money in return.
The exchange could be money out from one person = gratitude from the other and so the exchange is complete. If the card had been dealt reversed it would have meant a negative reaction one person giving = nothing in return.
Sadly in today’s world there are people who take the 6 of pentacles reversed to the extreme or ignore it’s meaning altogether. Individuals or big business whose sole aim is to take as much as they can for themselves and give little or nothing in return.
It is said that there is enough food and money in this world for everyone, that there should no need for people to starve or be homeless. We have stockpiles of food, class discrimination,”third world countries” to give just a few examples. This is the reverse effect of the 6 of pentacles. Maybe some of the leaders of this world should turn their card the right way up!
On a more positive note the 6 of pentacles (upright as drawn this week) can signify a giving and receiving of time, love, help, support, knowledge and skills. the list goes on and can be anything you can give to help or support another.
But and it’s a BIG BUT what would you expect the completion of the flow of energy to be?
Giving in itself to help or support another can be enough reward for some, the knowledge and satisfaction, the heart centred feeling that they have been able to help in someway for them is enough to complete the 8 of pentacles positive energy exchange.
We have seen some of the positive effects of the 8 of pentacles during the the current pandemic. The support for the NHS, people giving their time freely to visit people’s homes, delivering food or just clapping their hands at 8pm on a Thursday evening and in may other ways. This is the 8 of pentacles positive energy working in a positive way. People giving and enjoying the feeling it has given them and so completing the energy exchange.
The World needs more of the positive energy of the 8 of pentacles.
Your task for the week ahead…
Take time out for yourself, put life on pause for a few moments, how are you living your life? 8 of pentacles upright or in reverse?
Where in your life can you see the positive exchange of the 8 of pentacles?
Is there someone or a situation you know who lives or follows it’s path reversed?
What can you do, what can you change in your life or in yourself to create more 8 of pentacles positive energy flow?
Until next time…. please take care and stay safe.
