The meaning of the Six of Pentacles Tarot card is ‘generosity.’ The main meaning of the Six of Pentacles is that it’s a card of sharing. Often, this card represents giving or receiving financial assistance, but in some cases, it can symbolize generosity with love, feelings, support, etc.
Six of Pentacles General Tarot Meaning
Typically, the Six of Pentacles predicts charity being given and received. If you’re in financial hardship and have received the Six of Pentacles, you will be given a chance to recover. Perhaps you will be given a bank loan or get help from a friend or family member to cover your costs for the time being. If you’re doing well financially, you will be the one to give assistance.
Six of Pentacles – My Thoughts
“The Six of Pentacles is a charity card. It can mean that you will receive charity, but it can also mean that you will give charity to other people. Be careful that you’re not giving too much time, energy, or resources to people who do not deserve it!” – Lisa
It’s possible that the Six of Pentacles represents gifts and presents. Of course, engagements can come under this interpretation, but so can birthday gifts, so try not to get too excited if you’re waiting on your partner to pop the question!
In some cases, the Six of Pentacles can mean that you must take the initiative. Extra hard work and keenness to get the job done will not go unnoticed by those around you or other people in your industry. This is one of the few occasions when I would recommend doing a bit of ass-kissing so that you can get what you want.
Although the above meanings sound rather promising, there are also more sinister interpretations associated with the Six of Pentacles. Firstly, you should worry about your financial situation; why would you be in the predicament where someone needs to help you out by giving you money? Secondly, the Six of Pentacles can represent someone in your life who only sticks around out of pity, which is of course not a good omen.
Six of Pentacles Love Tarot Meaning
The Six of Pentacles is rather good for love Tarot readings. The card means that your partner (or future partner) is willing to support you in the foreseeable future, especially if the Six of Pentacles appears in an outcome position. Your lover will be generous with you and always consider your feelings.
I will say, however, that there’s a meaning of impermanence in the Six of Pentacles as well. The card represents charity and giving for now, but that doesn’t mean this will continue into the future. That’s not to say that your relationship won’t last long-term; it just means that you should enjoy the present because you don’t know what tomorrow might bring.

Six of Pentacles Feelings Tarot Meaning
If you’re wondering how someone feels about you, there’s the possibility that they think they have to protect you and your feelings. They feel as though they have to put in a little extra effort, be considerate, and go the extra mile for you.
Obviously, you will want a lover who considers your feelings. However, if the Tarot reading looks negative or the Six of Pentacles appears in a negative Tarot spread position, this can mean that they feel sorry for you. You don’t want your partner to pity you, as this can set a bad dynamic for your relationship.
Six of Pentacles Career & Business Tarot Meaning
The Six of Pentacles can represent you borrowing money for your business. If you can afford to pay back a loan, great, but if not, beware, as you may be putting yourself in a bad financial predicament.
In both business and career Tarot readings, I often interpret the Six of Pentacles as a prediction that you will help others out. Although this can be a good thing, I would watch who you help, as they may start to take advantage of you or take credit for your work.
Six of Pentacles Future Tarot Meaning
When it appears in the future or outcome position of a Tarot spread, the Six of Pentacles can mean that other people are going to come to you with their hand out in the future. Alternatively, the Six of Pentacles can mean that you will have to help someone else out.
For love Tarot readings, the Six of Pentacles in a future or outcome position means that your lover will always be considerate of how you feel. That’s not to say you’re going to be together forever, but they will always care about you.
