The 6 of Pentacles is where we learn about generosity. Is it generous to give that which we do not really need? Is it generous to give with a sense of resentment in our hearts? Does telling others about our charitable acts and donation reflect giving the way God gives?
“For it is in giving that we receive.”
― St. Francis of Assisi
Because generosity requires an acute ability to sense the energetic flow of give and take in order to adjust so that it resonates with Higher Will, it is also a lesson of boundaries as much as surrender – especially if we are prone to giving because we easily get ‘guilted’ into doing so or simply have not yet learned that ‘No’ is a complete sentence.
This card asks of you, ‘Are you a giver or a taker?’ Take your time. Think not only of other people but also of Mother Nature. Be honest. Reflect on how miserliness and generosity affect your happiness levels. Think about what the world could be like if every one of us were a cheerful giver.
Affirmation: “I give with a glad heart and receive gracefully.”
6 of Pentacles Prayer
Dear Mother-Father God, thank you for helping me be aware of the flow of giving and receiving. Help me receive gracefully and gratefully, and to give with a glad heart. Amen and so it is!

The 6 of Pentacles in Love and Relationship Readings
To someone already in a relationship, this card means that you and your partner are getting along very well. You are generous toward each other and want what’s best for the other person. Use this happy time and the strength of the current state of affairs to laid solid foundations for the future. If you, as a couple, are thinking about starting a family business, this card is a solid ‘yes’ from the Universe.
Reversed or ill-dignified, this card could mean that someone is taking advantage of you. A prenup could be a good idea if you still feel the need to walk them down the aisle.
To a single person, this card could indicate getting involved in charity work for possibly meeting someone new.
On a more intimate note, since this card corresponds to the Moon in Taurus (where the Moon is exalted), you have a very good chance to bond emotionally (Moon) through sensual pleasure (Taurus/Fixed Earth) under the auspice of this card.
