The 6 of Pentacles is a card typically depicting a person handing something out to another person. One person is holding scales, showing that things might not always be fair or even. There’s an inequality being seen in this card.

I suggest, while looking at this card description, you have your tarot deck in front of you and decide for yourself if you agree with the feelings on this page or if the card represents something entirely different to you.

6 of pentacles - A simple tarot card meaning

A few words to describe the card:

frugality, hand out, unequal funds

6 of Pentacles

 The 6 of pentacles is a card of power attached to money. It depends on the reading as to which person you represent in this card. Are you the one being stingy with the wealth? The one with all of the power and not evenly distributing? The person giving a little to one person but not the other, or are you one of the beggars, either getting too small of a handout to survive, or nothing at all?

This can be a card that is seen during a stressful financial period. You might be overspending, and not having enough to survive, or you might not be getting enough. The people kneeling in the typical Rider Tarot deck could be a representation of living paycheck to paycheck, worrying about money all the time. Sometimes it’s good to be frugal, and other times it can hurt everyone involved to be stingy with money.

There are typically scales depicted in this card as well. They are a prominent piece in this card, as it’s reminding you where the power lies. In this card, the person holding the scale is the person with the power, and it may seem balanced to that person, but it’s a contrast to what is actually going on in the picture.

Regardless of how you interpret this card, it’s reminding you to check in with finances and see what needs to can be different. It’s a time to try and figure out what to change.
