Reversed Six Of Pentacles Tarot Card General Meaning

The reversed Six of Pentacles has a slightly different meaning, so let’s take a look at it now.

Generally, the card represents gifts that come with strings or conditions attached, meanness, or a lack of generosity. 

Someone might show you generosity, but they have ulterior motives or might use their position to make you subservient to them. This is not a good situation for you to be in!

Be wary of anyone offering you gifts when this card appears. 

If you are in a position of power, the reversed Tarot card suggests you are using your power for ill means. The card also represents a lack of community spirit or lack of generosity.

The card also represents extortion, being scammed, or fake charities. 

When the reversed Six of Pentacles appears, you need to assess if you are becoming too greedy, mean, or in the other extreme, being too gullible or too generous. Take some time to consider all of these carefully. 

The card also suggests you are groveling to someone with authority, wealth, or power. The card also suggests that someone is behaving this way towards you. 

Now that we have established a general meaning of the card, let’s dive in a little deeper and take a closer look at the meaning of the reversed Six of Pentacles. 


Health-wise, the reversed Six of Pentacles suggests that delaying reaching out for help and support with your health could make a medical issue worse!

It could also cause poor health, so be sure to seek medical help as soon as you have an issue! 

Love And Relationships

If you are in a relationship, the reversed Six of Pentacles is not a good card to get. It suggests your relationship lacks balance. You or your partner might be abusing your power or dominating the other.

One of you might also have become subservient or too dependent on the other. 

The card also suggests that one of you is abusing the other’s good nature. You might be taking too much and not giving anything in return.

This lack of balance can be detrimental to your relationship and will cause serious problems if it is not rectified. 

If you are single, the reversed card suggests that meanness or greed is putting potential partners off!

You might have put up barriers by not having a kind and open approach when you meet new potential partners. 

Alternatively, you might be too generous and let new people take advantage of you and your kindness! Take some time here to find the balance that you need.

You will need to be open to the possibility of meeting someone new and trusting them, but be aware and don’t allow yourself to be played! 

Money And Career

Career-wise, the reversed Tarot card isn’t a good card to receive. It suggests you are being under-appreciated, under-valued, unemployed, or being fired from a workplace.

The card suggests someone in a position of power is being generous towards you with an ulterior motive.

They might also be abusing their position of power. 

If you have a senior role, the card reminds you to be kind and generous to those you work with. Make sure you are kind to people you meet on your way up, as you could meet them again on your way down!

No one is secure in their role, and you need to remember that. 

The card can also indicate you might become a yes-person to people in senior positions. While there is nothing wrong with getting on well with co-workers or your boss, you must be true to yourself!

Keep your self-respect and don’t say yes to anything that goes against who you are. 

If you are in business, the card suggests investors or banks are unwilling to back you. 

Financially the reversed Six of Pentacles represents bad financial management or debts. The card also represents a lack of generosity or charity.

If you are doing well financially, don’t be greedy! Make sure that you share your fortune with others. 

However, you need to take care not to overdo it. The card also suggests the other extreme, where you are so generous that others take advantage. This could be scams, fake charities, extortion, or being conned. Make sure you are cautious in your financial matters. 

The reversed Tarot card also suggests being underpaid, or financial woes getting worse because you did not listen to advice or seek the support available to you. 


The reversed Six of Pentacles represents one-sided generosity.

This might be you giving your time and energy to others but not getting anything in return or being subservient to someone because they give you wisdom, or making others subservient to you because they respect you. 

This is not what generosity means! If you are sharing your knowledge or wisdom with others, make sure they are not taking advantage of you.

Make sure no one is becoming too dependent or subservient to you or you to them! 

Final Thoughts 

And there you have it, all the possible meanings of the upright and reversed Six of Pentacles Tarot card. No matter how or where the card appears in your reading, be sure to listen to the message it is telling you and offer kindness to others without being taken advantage of.
