Pentacles in this deck are associated with Laxmi/Laksmi, Hindu Goddess of wealth, abundance, and prosperity. Pentacles are associated with Earth, with its powers of fertility, abundance, grounding, and governance of practical matters.

The Six of Pentacles comes into our lives to remind us to share our gifts and bounty with others! Whether this is through the donation of our time or money to charity, helping out a friend who has fallen on hard times, or teaching others a skill, it is important to remember that we must give back. This card also encourages us to see how blessed we truly are — to acknowledge that there are people who would love to have what we have and be who we are. This can be hard to remember if we are dissatisfied with our lives — Laxmi and the Six of Pentacles encourages you to look at the larger picture! If you have been doubtful about your worth as a teacher, guide, or mentor, this card assures you that you have something worth offering and which people are ready to receive! Laxmi also reminds us that we cannot receive with a clenched fist — when we open our hand to give, we also receive, and so the cycle of abundance continues.


Daily Dakotawitch: Six of Staves March 18, 2014

Six of Staves, drawn from The Goddess Tarot by Kris Waldherr:

Staves (Wands) in this deck are ruled by Freyja, Norse Goddess of smithcraft, poetry, midwifery, home, and the hearth. Staves represent communication, intellectual knowledge, reason, understanding, and poetic inspiration.

The Six of Staves rides her bay horse into our day to tell us that we are entering a time of triumph. Honors, laurels, and rewards will soon be coming our way. This can mean recognition on the job, a raise or new job, acclamation for creative or intellectual work, or simply the resolution of a trying situation in our favor. The Six of Staves encourages us to accept and welcome the praise and accolades that are coming our way — it serves no one for us to play small or downplay our talents! This card also reminds us to be generous and kind with the new largesse that comes to us, and to remember all those who helped us get where we are. Most of all, this card reminds us that we have earned the good fortune that comes to us!

Daily Dakotawitch: Six of Cups February 12, 2014

Six of Cups, drawn from The Goddess Tarot by Kris Waldherr:

Cups in this desk are associated with Venus, Roman Goddess of love, sexuality, fertility. Cups are associated with Water, with its powers of intuition, divination, healing, and fertility of all kinds.

The Six of Cups comes into our lives when we are feeling nostalgic. We may be longing for our childhood or a simpler time. This card can also pop up when we find ourselves thinking of lost lovers or friends. If you feel like you have something you need to say to someone with whom you have lost touch, this card encourages you to reach out to them. This card also tells us that now is a perfect time to heal any lasting wounds or trauma from our families of origin or from past love relationships. The Six of Cups cautions us not to get so lost in our fantasies of the past that we forget our blessings in the present. While it is good to remember the past and to heal it, this card reminds you to be careful not to romanticize or idealize the past.
