Alchemical Study Group - Six of coins

(from the book)

Two children are playing. One gives a coin to another. The coins show ancient symbols for money. Six is the first perfect number. It is the number of Aphrodite and is associated with love. In the suit of coins, this card relates to giving love freely.

Tarot wisdom: The card points to generosity, and the innocence of giving without attachment and expectation of return. Children suggest a beginner's mind, that is, being true to your emotions. When you are truly loving, you give innocently. The child with open hands represents accepting; wisdom will come from the gift, because to accept freely is to love yourself. The owl symbol on the exchanged coin also connotes wisdom. The card may show that in some situations, there may be more to the giving than is apparent on the surface. Attachments and expectations may be disguised, but to give or receive without attachment allows wealth to flow freely and keeps one in harmony with the soul of the world. As the I Ching states, "it is the law of heaven to make fullness empty and to make full what is modest; --- high mountains are worn down by the waters, and the valleys are filled up."

There are Six Coins and two Youths. The boy from III-The Empress has grown older; he stands on top of five coins and offers the sixth coin to a second boy. The first child shows generosity, balance, and control; he is the king of the mountain. He gives a coin with an owl, symbol of wisdom and the night, to the less fortunate youth who reaches out with trust to accept. The other coins are father and mother, the eagle of strength and victory, the anchor of safety and stability, and the Sun, slayer of darkness. The Youths are barefoot showing their attachment to the earth, and naked showing their innocence.
