Advanced tarot interpretation

(Applies to the upright position)

The Symbolism in the "Six of Pentacles" Tarot Card:

This is the card of charity. A wealthy merchant dispenses alms to the poor with one hand, and holds aloft the scales of justice with the other. The pentacles partially frame the picture.

The Meaning of the "Six of Pentacles" Tarot Card:

The scales of justice that the merchant is holding shows that he is doing this as much for his own spiritual well-being as for the poor that he is doling out the money to. This does not negate the fact that good works are being done. Gifts or assistance will follow quickly on the heels of this card, usually in the form of material gain. However it will be a hand up and not a hand out, and there will be something in it for the giver. Goodness of heart leads to greater satisfaction in life - if the individual is in the position of the nobleman, perhaps it is time for them to see where they can start dispensing charity in their own life.
