What good is giving something if it’s not what is being asked for?
- We offer platitudes when it’s the accountability that’s required.
- We offer thoughts and prayers when it’s an action that is necessary.
- We offer pity when it’s compassion that is requested.
What is actually required of us to give right now?
That’s what the 6 of Pentacles is asking of us this cycle. There is so much to give… but what is being asked for? What is needed? That is just as important.
I mean… have you ever received advice you didn’t ask for? What does that bring up for you, as a giver, and as one that has received?
We don’t even think about it! We just … give. And give. And give without pausing to consider what is actually requested. This card is often about giving and sharing in what you have. Absolutely: do that. If that’s what is needed.
And, if that is what you have to give. Often, I see the 6 of Pentacles as a call to give what you have. Where those that have the abundance of what is being asked for can freely give. And those that don’t can freely receive.
“I have less than I require now, I need.”
“I have more than I need now, I can provide.”
It’s not a call to overextend yourself in giving. If you cannot give: don’t.
What does equity in giving and receiving look like? What does balance in give and take look like? Do you see a difference?
What happens when we give more than what we can afford to? And what happens when we take more than what we need?
You need to answer these questions for yourself.
And answer this: what do we bring to the world when we start paying attention to what is actually needed and giving that?

Take what resonates, leave the rest, as they say. And be mindful of what you are giving and what it means for you. Is it time? Focus? Money? Energy? Whatever comes to mind first is what you need to be considering at this time, and perhaps over the next few years.
Note it, observe it.
Change what doesn’t work, nurture that which does.
Understand the subtle differences between the two. 🙂
I’ll see you next New Moon.
