Six of Coins
Today’s card — the Six of Coins from the charming and whimsical Joie de Vivre Tarot — speaks of aligning yourself with the Universal laws of abundance and prosperity.
It refers to the act of giving and receiving, sharing the wealth and attracting more and more of it into your life through your willingness to trust that it is meant to flow.
The Moon is in Leo today, and is conjuncting Jupiter for a good part of the morning. This transit may be fleeting but while it lasts it can spark in you those warm, fuzzy feelings of benevolence and good will.
The Six of Coins is about giving and receiving. It’s about sharing. It’s about random acts of kindness. And it’s about the exchange of energy — which often takes the form of money or financial assistance.
When you look at the figures in this card you can see how there’s just as much joy in giving as there is in receiving, which is of course exactly as it should be.
Can you even tell who is who in this picture anyway? Who is the benefactor and who is the recipient? Both are giving the other one something. For one it’s the tangible gift of money and for the other it’s the joyful gift of gratitude. Is one more valuable to you than the other?
This is something to think about today. Kindness and consideration, compassion, generosity. But most of all gratitude. These are all Six of Coins attributes.
This isn’t about giving what you can’t afford to give. That can create hardship and ultimately resentment. But notice how the giver in this card has five shiny coins left after he’s given one away. He’s either created enough abundance in his life to feel comfortable passing some of it along, or he’s learned to place more value on the act of giving than the act of hoarding or spending frivolously.
Whether you’re the benefactor today or the recipient, know that this is a never ending cycle and you’ll find yourself in both roles. Be prepared to jump in and participate fully — either through offering help to another or expressing gratitude for the help you receive.
