Six of Pentacles depicts a pure white branch bearing six fire pentacles. After the darkness of five of pentacles, one is now experiencing an opening within that is flourishing on material aspects of life. This is expanding from a rootedness coming out of an inner nourishing. This is a time where one is fruitful and prosperous financially, or perhaps inner resources are being discovered which can be exchanged for financial independence. Whether the abundance is present now or you are discovering and working toward financial freedom, you currently have all resources you need. This is a time where one does not need reassurance on the path you are on and all the dots are connecting.
Six of Pentacles is a great reflection that we all have unique gifts that can be exchanged for financial independence. When we see we already have all we need we find the love of joyous work instead of resorting to the mundane work which leaks our spirit. This is a time when ones gifts are being used fully or being discovered to allow financial exchange to happen. For the one who is unsure, What resources do you have that others do not? What ways would you enjoy giving that allows you to receive financial exchange? The more we discover ourselves and what we are attracted to, we can genuinely trust our unique ways to give and receive. Frustration seeps in when we do not trust our own process and start doubting our natural progression. As sweet energy is put into your work you will be met in return with the same energy. If you are halfway in then you will only see some of the results. Six of Pentacles says do not be afraid to jump fully into what you are doing. Ask for in exchange the value that you put into your work, don’t sell yourself short. Your time, skills, resources, and talents are of high value and they will continue to bloom as much as you put your entire being into them.
Six of Pentacles is about giving and receiving. If you find you are giving so much in your work and not receiving what you need to be abundant and prosperous the invitation is to sincerely ask, has this work just become humdrum autopilot work? Or, is my being still present here? Sometimes we are not receiving what we are putting in because perhaps our line of work or creation is shifting or changing into something entirely new. When we pay attention we can see if we are feeling drained or uninspired. This can happen because what we are doing is not aligned with our true internal calling. When everything seems to be going shit it often means there is some hidden treasure waiting to be recognized. We are always allowed to change direction to do something that satisfies us deeply and this can happen at anytime in our life or many times! We are not only here to play when we retire! Who said we will even make it to retirement?! The invitation is to allow the true blooming of what inspires to become the work. Many are shifting out of the 9-5 paradigm to discover what truly sets their heart on fire. Not to say it is easy, but it doesn’t need to be. There will always be struggles that stretch us in ways we can simply say thank you for. What is more important than what is easy is what is actually satisfying in a real way? Is where you spend the majority of time each day worth the energy invested? Failing a million times at something that makes you excited to be alive is much more satisfying than playing it safe with a steady job while dying on the inside…..unless that seems cool with you…
Six of Pentacles recognizes your internal blooming whether you do or not. You absolutely have all the resources you need. It is only the fear we allow to creep in which delays our blooming. But this delay is also crucial because life is testing your own trust. Each day you work on what you love you will grow in trust. You will also get pissed off and want to give up, this is part of the dance. There is no need to let one moment, one day, or even a few months of darkness or doubt stop you from aligning with what work is true to you. As your relationship with yourself is no longer separated within, you will continue what you do in an effortless way. The blooming within you has been blooming since before birth and it will continue to bloom fully. It will also wither away and die off, decompose, and begin itself anew. This is part of our dying and rebirthing that is our natural expansion. The natural essence of our being must go through the wide spectrum of light, dark, and grey to encompass the totality. It is already happening…best if we get out the way and let it do what it does.
Father of Pentacles is a regal, male deer. His antlers show the entire spectrum of rainbow colors. He has loved and continues to love the game of material success. For him it is a game, and one he plays with a blazing fire of enthusiasm. His worth does not stem from his material success, but he allows the game of creativity and money to be a joyful pursuit. Deeply, he knows his oneness with the universe is what allows him to play this game. First and foremost he is in alignment with this, then his play with wealth and life is tremendous fun and joyfully light. Energy emanates out from the single pentacle in between his antlers. He is so full of energy he is overflowing with abundance and sharing his internal wisdom, knowledge, and material wealth with all who are wishing to receive. He is abundant in all aspects and finds no use of it unless his wealth is shared among the people.
Father of Pentacles represents an abundant life. He has a secure internal foundation, creative ambition, discipline in his craft, and deep care for others with his guidance, wisdom, and financial support. The Father of Pentacles has the ability to turn all he touches into magic, this is simply how he is. He puts every ounce of his energy into what he does and that is why he does not fail. He has learned that when his heart is fully and absolutely absorbed in what he is doing there is no room for failure. He has failed enough to know that this is true. He joyfully continues on his endeavors with ease and grace. He is an inspiration to all whom he encounters because of the spirit in which he moves, his actions match his words and this makes many flock to him. Those who come across him listen carefully to all which he says because he walks his talk. There is something brewing in this card. Perhaps one has embarked on a business or creative journey and have succeeded. Or, one is currently investing energy into a project and will see the fruits of labor very soon. The Father of Pentacles invites us to allow every vibrating cell of our being into our creations with full joy.
The Father of Pentacles is asking are you putting every ounce of creative energy into what you wish to focus on? If so, there is nothing more to do. If not, then one must ask why? Why not put every fiber of ones being into what feels true and important? Is it because what is being focused on is not genuinely what one wants to be doing? Perhaps there is something deeper within you that wishes to give birth to creation? This question of why your energy is not invested fully in your endeavor can only be answered by you. There can be infinite amount of excuses we use about why we cannot do something. But all of theses things are simply excuses that keep us in a limited mindset. We are living on a yummy playground with infinite possibilities. The Father of Pentacles is inviting us to check in with our being. Are we jumping into our creative endeavors and projects fully? What about with life? We are already here, yet sometimes we tiptoe around the edges pretending we aren’t already in. We are here! What is the most honest and sincere way that one can continue in a way that is in full alignment with the sincerity of heart? We are the only ones that can listen deeply to the ways that wish to bloom within us.
..::.. Four of Pentacles ..::..
Checking in with ideas, beliefs, material/environmental aspects of life. Is there a tightness that blocks off our natural movement and flow of creativity/life force? If we are tightly bound or wrapped up in particular ways of thinking/being we can confine ourselves into a space that works against our natural divine flow. When Four of Pentacles is pulled we can ask where am I gripping so tightly and is this serving my highest good or am I going against myself? There are times it is wise to be confidant in our ways when it births from deeply from ones heart. However, this card is referring not to a healthy focus and confidence in ones path, but an unhealthy and rigid nature. This is a reminder of a time where openness and softness towards life will reveal new doors to us and it is okay for us to loosen the grips of control.
Sometimes life can seem like complete chaos. Everything appears to be going insane…like a huge disaster. The Four of Pentacles is a reminder to trust through these times. Instead of trying to control every detail of life, can we trust that all is happening for one to expand and learn from this experience? Everything is not as disastrous as it may seem and sometimes we will be tested to see where our faith is. Does one persevere and learn from experience? Or, does one try to micromanage aspects of life to feel safe and secure within unknown realms? At times we can cut off doors of opportunity and creation when we try to put everything safely into boxes. We can ask, is this a time to control my situation or is this a time to truly drop into trusting life and the miracle of existence?
Being here is a miracle. When we remain open and trusting to life we are naturally moving in harmony with the miracle. Where do we cling tightly to our experience causing rigidity? What aspects are we moving freely and openly dancing as the harmony? When we look at aspects of our experience that are in harmony and other aspects that are not we can ask where is it I am cutting myself off in this area? Four of Pentacles asks, Is it possible that I am restricting or even murdering aspects of myself that simply wish to be allowed to move without restriction? We have the opportunity to check in with our ways of thinking/beliefs and look at our life experience up until now. Where are there beliefs and actions in our life that we have given so much energy to that have been contributing to cutting off parts of ourselves that wish to exist? This is the time to feel ourselves. We can check in with any feeling of restrictions and ask what is the source of this restriction? It is here that when we choose to look and contemplate we can learn to navigate in a new ways that are healthy for us. This is exciting because we continue to discover new parts of ourselves that wish to come out of dormancy into full vibrancy.
