This is a simple truth- money is important. Money leads to happiness. Some people like to argue that. They will tell you that they don’t need money to be happy, that they have all they need. Unless they have all the money to spend that they want, they are probably telling a lie.
Money is important. With it we buy food. We buy clothes. We pay the bills associated with shelter- rent/mortgage, utilities, satellite TV, etc. When we have all we need without worry or fear over where it will come from, we relax and are able to be happy. When we are not sure where it will come from, we are anxious, stressed and worried. Therefore, yes. Money does lead to happiness.
In this way, consider money energy. When we have what we need, that energy flows. When we do not have what we need, that energy becomes stuck. This flow of energy is one thing that the six of pentacles tarot card represents.
Take a look at the Rider Waite rendition of this card. What do you see? Here is somebody giving, as well as people receiving. Give and take. When the energy flow of financial needs gets stuck, sometimes it helps to receive a little stimulus to get it going again, or maybe a little something to help us until we get back on out feet again. Do you see that those receiving the money are on the ground? They need help getting back on their feet don’t they? The figure giving is standing tall. He has plenty to give. See the scales of justice in his hand? It is only right that he help these people out.
This act of helping those in need is not about the giver’s ego, and neither it about the receiver’s. There is plenty of abundance in the world. All the money in the world is not intended for a single person. All the wealth to be had is not to be had by one entity. If you have all you need and more, as the figure standing in this card, then give when needed. You will still be provided for. You will still have enough for your desires and needs. It is common humanity to help the flow for another.
The receivers here are not too proud to receive. They appreciate the offering. If ego and pride got in their way, they would remain suffering. Why do that? They accept the generosity of this person. The look on their faces is that of gratitude.
When the six of pentacles comes up for you in a reading, keep these things in mind. Are you being stingy when others could use your help? Are you yourself open the receiving the help of others? Finances are a flow of energy. Keep it flowing. Don’t let it get jammed up. There is happiness in keeping the flow going.
