Intro: Six of Coins Tarot Card Meaning - sharing resources

Tarot Alley uses the Rider Waite type of deck for our meanings, symbols, interpretations, etc.

When determining the Six of Coins tarot card meaning, you should consider that it’s a Coins card and a Six. The Suit of Coins represents the material world. Sixes represent collaboration, cooperation, and interaction.

In this way, we can determine that the Six of Coins represents sharing resources.

Take a look at the Rider-Waite Six of Coins displayed to the left (or above).

What is your first impression?

Who is the standing figure? What is he doing? Why? Why does he carry scales? Why are the other figures on the ground? How do they feel?

There’s no right or wrong answer here, just your interpretation.

Astrology: Moon in Taurus
Element: Earth
Numerology: 6 (collaboration, cooperation, interaction)

The Six of Coins for Personal Growth

Affirmation: Knowing I will receive more, I share my resources freely.

Charity is based on a simple premise: we should all look out for one another. Putting the needs and well-being of others first is a step towards a far more balanced life.

Ask Yourself:

  • How do you feel about charity? About giving it? About receiving it?
  • How can you know if you’re treating others fairly?
  • What could you give that no one else can?
  • To what extent is everyone in your situation pulling their own weight?What role does isolation play in your situation? How might joining a group of some kind influence your future?
  • In your circumstances, what role does fairness play?

Interpreting the Six of Coins

Generally, the Six of Coins represents sharing resources. We all need material goods – food, shelter, money, etc. What are you doing with your material possessions?

Now is a great time to give your time, money, possessions, or effort to a charitable cause. Lend or give your resources to others because they need them not because you want something in return.

Find a group that you can participate in. Work with the group towards a common goal and make sure that everyone is treated equally.

The Reversed Six of Coins

How you read reversals is a personal choice. You can ignore reversals and read them as if the card is upright (this is what I often choose to do) or you can interpret reversals as variations of what they would mean upright. There are 3 common ways to read reversals: as a negative interpretation, as an opposite interpretation, or as a block on the upright interpretation. Check out How to Read Reversals for more information.

Typically, a reversed Six of Coins represents unfair use of resources. Examples include:

  • Loaning money in an effort to control someone
  • Using charity as a means of gaining attention
  • Dividing work or resources unfairly
  • Failing to do your part in a group
  • Ignoring your commitments or obligations

Examples of the Six of Coins

Specific Interpretations

Specific situations are the general interpretation (from above) used for a specific situation (love, career, etc). There is no need to memorize these (or even look them up) if you understand the general interpretation. However, here are some basic interpretations for some specific situations:


Define what equality in your relationship means to each of you and work together to achieve it.


Many people working together can achieve far more than one person alone.


Whatever form of service your spiritual path encourages, offer it regularly and without expectation of return.
