Herbal Tarot - Six of Pentacles - Hops


You can see the minor arcane cards in Constellation 6.

Description: A man is handing a sack of coins to a man who is just out of sight, only his hand is seen. The man is wearing a hat with a fluffy feather plume. There are six discs with five-petaled flowers upon them. There is a large hops branch reaching over the man. A village is seen in the distance, and there are clouds on the horizon.

Significant Details: The discs symbolize security and wealth. The village represents community. The clouds symbolize hope. The hops branch symbolizes healing.

Keywords: Generosity, Receiving or giving help, Having enough, Power

Medicinal Uses: Hops is a “bitter aromatic tonic, with sedative and diuretic properties. The flowers contain a natural antibiotic. Hops will produce sleep when nothing else will. A pillow stuffed with hops is the country remedy for inducing a good night’s sleep…The herb stimunates oestrogen production and in men curbs excessive sexual desire and is a remedy for spermatorrhoea.” Culpeper’s Color Herbal.

My Interpretation: You may have a sense of having enough right now. Use your generosity to help others. This is a time for receiving or giving help.

Number Significance: 6 - Harmony, Social consciousness, Relaxation, Healing. The 6 of Pentacles is ruled by the Moon in Taurus. Hops is ruled by Mars. The Sixes are in Constellation 6 with the VI Lovers and XV Pan. Attraction and Division. Synergy and Separation. Exchange. Sharing and Relating. Reciprocity. Vitality. Sensuality. Connectedness. Ability to Discriminate between Good and Evil. Temptation. Obsession.

Thoughts/Points to Ponder: The man seems to have collected enough for himself (the discs) and is now sharing his wealth with another person. Or is he paying for a doctors help, possibly from taking too many hops?
