The Rider-Waite Six of Pentacles concentrates on the principle of sure success in all business matters.There is not a lot to explain in this card's illustration. We have a merchant, with his balance scales, counting out coins to supplicating grateful recipients. Above the scene, are the six pentacles, almost as six stars above. In Tarot Divination the sixes imply definite accomplishment and the carrying out of a matter.
However, 6 is not only a number of accomplishment, but also that of Christ- Buddha consciousness which in Qabalah is the Sixth Sephira-Tiphareth. Tiphareth is named Beauty, for it is the central Sun of the Tree of Life, where all paths join or radiate from. It is synchronicity. 6 is also the number of electron's in the very successful carbon atom.
Therefore, the 6's are of the Soul, being the highest state of consciousness that a personality can reach; However, a certain sacrifice is made as the 6 is also the number of the Dying Gods, implying a definite personality initiation of deconstruction in order for reconstruction that eventually brings success. However, this is only important knowledge to the student of higher mind. In a more prosaic light, success in all matters of business also requires a certain sacrifice and reorganization of skills.
The Thoth Six of Disks-Success,is aptly named The Lord of success, as the Moon is exalted in Taurus. Here the charm, subtleties, ebb and flow of the Moon are merging with the hard work and deliberate earth qualities of Taurus, ensuring success in business and other earthly matters.
The colors on the Thoth Deck Card, are somewhat muted in this rendition; However, the center glows in dawn's light of rose-madder, surrounded by three concentric circles of golden yellow, salmon-pink and amber. Suggesting Tiphareth, the 6th Sephiroth, fully realized on earth. The usual arrangement of the Planets, as disks, are being irradiated by the Sun at the center. Again, Tiphareth is the Sun/Son and is here, idolized as the Rose and Cross. This is a forty nine pedaled Rose, implying the interplay of the Seven with the Seven.The Feminine, 7 is never separate from the Masculine, it is their interplay that makes Life. This interplay is illustrated in the black and white illustration of the central Sun and other planets. They are shown linked together in a hexagram, the "As above, so Below" symbol of Qabalah. Here the Sun is masculine (Son) in action, as it is ejaculating its energy to the feminine receptive planets.
When Thrown during a reading, the 6/Six of Disks/Pentacles implies:
- Material attainment and accomplishment, but with a caveat dealt out by the law of Karma; you'll have to put out effort, to receive back success.
- That the successful cycle of income or security is steady and predictable.
- That the querent is also generous, sharing the wealth, giving people what they are willing to receive.
- The 6 of Disks/Pentacles also suggests that money owed will be paid and the querent shall receive what is rightfully theirs.
- Success in all aspects of life by being willing to risk, being committed and trusting your intuition.
