Deliberate Draw: Six of Pentacles

First Impressions:  Balancing, resources, unequal

Book:  Sharing resources, remembering how others have helped you, the human heart holds a profound capacity for generosity

Guidance:  If you are in need, expect help in some form, share some of your abundance


I love the reading on this card.  The six of pentacles is a card that I historically have a difficult relationship with as the first six of pentacles card I ever worked with was the DruidCraft, but this card really makes it about sharing the wealth and paying it forward.  It is a reminder that none of us exists in a vacuum and that  we all need someone else's help.  I think a part of being open and willing to accept help is the attitude in which help is asked for.  I am so much more willing to provide help when it is asked for in an attitude of humility and not entitlement.  I get really angry when people act as if my money is there money and they are entitled to it.  That's happened to me a could of times when people would ask for money, then act as if what I gave them was not enough.  Or when people said they wanted money for food and I bought them food and that wasn't enough.  I'm much more discriminating in who I give help to these days.  I think part of it is perception and people assume that if someone has nice clothes, a computer, etc., then they have all the money in the world, but I don't and the reason that I do have nice things is that I work for them.

Accepting help is also all about attitude.  I don't ask for or accept help if it feels like charity or if the person giving the help acts as if they are superior to me.  I have worked really hard to get to the point where I feel good about myself and I'm not going to put myself in a position of inferiority to someone else.  There are things I am lacking that others have and things that others are lacking that I have.  One of the lessons I've learned about equality is that it doesn't mean we are all equal in everything. It really just means that it evens out.  That's a hard concept to grasp sometimes because I was brought up thinking equality meant everyone had the same size piece of cake and that is not what it means at all.

The other important part of this card is that sharing isn't just about money.  It is also about sharing the intangible gifts we have with others.  It means sharing our knowledge, our support, and just generally helping people get by in this world.  The world can be a cold and hard place and a kind world often means the world.
