6 of Pentacles

Meaning

The 6 of pentacles often appears in a reading after a feeling or period that resembles the 5 of pentacles, which is a card of being left out in the cold. In this card however, that is reversed and generosity and brightness is restored from the previous card's abandonment. All parties are going to experience a gift of generosity in some way when this card appears. If you have been short of money at work, or feeling neglected in a relationship, and this card appears, know that your smiles are not that far away as harmony will be restored sooner than later.

Symbolism

In this card we see a figure who is acting very generous in nature. He is holding the scales of justice, in one of his hands, and is offering coins or goods with the other. There are other parties in the picture, with one person at the receiving of the scales and his outreached hand. We see practical goods falling from his hands to each of these individuals, and the man providing the goods appears very content with himself for sharing his good fortune with those less fortunate. The symbolism in this card spells out its meaning clearly. All parties are about to get exactly what they want in the situation at hand.
