Reversals of fortunes: more going out than coming in. Home Economics 101. The only thing not ‘going out’ is us at the moment. The 6 of Wands or Clubs, (Aries/Sagittarius/Leo) today in ‘tomorrow’s position is very much a card of public recognition, and, in the reverse, it looks like we’re being warned to spend even less and lay even lower, and although I don’t read time, I’m feeling like 6 more weeks of ‘laying low’ is ‘in the cards.’ (Insert rolling eyeball emoji here -Ed.)
We have the 6 of Coins, a card of charity both given and received, reversed in ‘yesterday’s’ position. This is a card of fluctuating fortunes, showing a well-dressed human weighing and dispensing coins to a couple on their knees before him, who appear to be begging. It seems, as he or she holds a pair of scales in their left hand as they offer the coins with their right, it is his or her decision as to who ‘deserves’ this ‘relief’. In the reverse, this doesn’t appear to have been given ‘in the right spirit’ or for the right reasons, if given at all.
This is someone who only ‘gives’ or ‘gave‘ in order to ‘get‘. Or: someone who has always been charitable themselves are the now the ones who at this time need the charity.
6 is a Karmic number, and this is a Karmic card.
The bigger they are, the harder they fall.
I would hope you’re not the sort that would apply for and receive financial assistance if you didn’t need it, but that could be what’s happening here. The 6 of Wands traditionally shows a hero on horseback holding his ‘laurels’ or trophies/achievements high for all to admire, leading his or her team through an admiring, cheering crowd. This successful card of self promotion/public recognition in the reverse is ‘resting on past laurels’, which, I hate to tell you, today mean absolutely nothing. This is also weak leadership: the 6 of Wands in the reverse is undeserving of his or her place on their ‘high horse’, or their/our elevated and esteemed position and reputation.
This may mean a slow recovery/re-start in career/business: we may never ‘bounce back’ to ‘100%‘ financially or physically.
The suit of Coins or Pentacles (Virgo/Taurus/Capricorn) is slow, deliberate, and conservative. None of the 3 humans in this story are at ease or at their best.
On the other hand – as suggested once again by the reversed ‘giving’ hand of the 6 of Coins – this ‘conservative’ spread heavily advises exactly that, conservation. If you can afford 6 weeks off, you may very well have been as practical as an Earth sign on a good day and were smart to save for an off-season. For many, and very fortunately, this actually coincides with your ‘off season’, and you already know how to manage this period of time.
…so I didn’t like these cards, but we work with what we’re dealt.
I then decided to draw 3 more from another deck, and lo and behold, here is again the 6 of Coins, or as presented on the beautiful Wild Unknown version of the card, 6 red roses in bloom on 1 branch, upright, and in the ‘tomorrow’ position.
Making summer plans.
