OCCULT: DAILY DRAW – Six of Pentacles

Today’s card is the Six of Pentacles.

A wealthy man, dressed fancily and holding a set of scales, distributes gold coins between two beggars. The beggars kneel on the ground with their hands outstretched; one beggar receives gold, while the other remains empty-handed.

The fundamental purpose of the Six of Pentacles is the divide between have and have not. The wealthy man is carrying a set of scales with him, as if he has meticulously measured the amount of gold he will be giving to the needy today. Only one beggar is receiving a donation, however. Even in the realm of rock-bottom beggars, there are gaps between the rich and the poor. The Six of Pentacles is a reminder to consider our finances, and to beware that one could change their status at any time. Who knows when, one day, the wealthy man might join these beggars?
