Pentacles can represent monetary concerns in person's life when drawn from a tarot deck. This article highlights cards 6 through ten in this suit.
The Six of Pentacles is the symbol of generosity- either the receiving of it or the doling of it to another. More often than not, it is the latter. This isn't limited to material generosity. Spiritual and mental wealth can be given away just as easily. But there needs to be caution attached so that you don't drain yourself dry. Overexerting yourself will not help anyone in the long run. If you only have the resources to help one other person, do not take it upon yourself to take care of a village. The devoted aid of one person is better than the half implemented aid of a hundred people. This card can show that there is someone out there who is willing to help you if they are told what you need. Regardless of who is doing the giving, there are rewards waiting for their efforts.
The Seven of Pentacles shows the choice between keeping what is already had or attempting to acquire more. The decision often will not be an obvious or easy one. It may seem risky to wager what you already have on the chance of gain. But stagnation has never done anyone any good, either. Even when you do put forth some risk and receive a gain, you may not be satisfied. It may not be as good as you thought or your efforts may seem hollow. Reflection and clarity are necessary here. If the tides don't seem to be heading in the direction of change, it is okay to take a pause and decide on your next move.
The Eight of Pentacles usually represents hard work and effort put forth towards self improvement. There will be amazing rewards but the work to get there will be tough. Dedication, concentration, effort and persistence will be necessary to achieve this success. The rewards can be material or the benefits of learning more about yourself and the world around you. There will be problems and obstacles but they can be defeated with practicality and knowledge. If this card appears in a tarot reading when a project has already been started, it is showing that benefits are nearby if you keep working at it. Keep your eye on the prize, so to speak, and it will be yours.
The Nine of Pentacles is what results from the hard work of the Eight- reward. This can manifest itself as material, spiritual or mental wealth. This is a reward well worked for and earned. You can be proud of your efforts and the success they have brought. You will know how to use this wealth and apply the necessary discipline to respect it. This is a time of self appreciation and the balancing of the spiritual with the physical. Enjoy what you have accomplished and learn how to use what you have learned towards future gains.
The Ten of Pentacles is what results from correctly utilizing the wealth you have gained. Happiness, security and wisdom are attached to this tarot cards. Now is not the time to lay the groundwork for future gains. It is a time of reflection upon what has already been acquired. The wealth currently had has to be managed with balance. Give too much away and you are materially bankrupt but keep too much and you are spiritually bankrupt. A good way to give away wealth while keeping it nearby is to pass it down through your family. Whether it is money or advice, the spread of wealth to those close to you allows you to see it grow in another's hands. If you are the one in need of wealth, this card indicates there is someone close by willing to help you.
