Astrological Decan Allocation
Tarot Six Earth, Six Pentacles, is the second decan of Taurus whose planetary attribution is the Moon.
The combination of Six Sun and the decan planetary attribute of the Moon is summed up by the card’s title of Material Success.
Be aware this card represents solitary material success only, and any possibility of future growth will be indicated by adjacent or following cards.
A Sun Moon combination indicates success and growth in undertakings. Therefore, the material trouble encountered in Five Earth has been overcome or realized to be illusionary in Six Earth.
Here we are witnessing an achievement of earthly success after and through trouble.
Empowered through difficulty the individual has risen through challenge to achieve a goal.
However, one needs to be mindful this is material success of a specific objective and does not necessarily indicate success in one’s life overall or necessarily in financial reward.
Winning a battle does not mean winning a war.
Composure induced by success can result in distraction from perceiving the bigger picture, a prerequisite of failure in following through, meaning a tendency to sitting on one’s laurels.
This cocooned sense of well being and self satisfaction leads to loss of resolve illustrated in the following card Seven Earth, Abandoned Success.
History has demonstrated through countless examples that failure to act on an earned opportunity because of not taking full advantage in exploiting its potential, either because of fear or lack of vision, will ultimately bring a demise to what had been a sequence of gains.
Indication of the duration of the card’s influence can be deduced from surrounding cards.
With inability to divine the card meaning regarding a question one should allow one’s mind to fall back upon the archetypal decan signature cards and allow them to project through the Personality Type of the decan for elucidation.
The character qualities of the court card Prince of Earth are those best suited to receive and translate the specific ancestral voice of this decan.
This is because the union of conscious and subconscious, Sun Moon conjunction, results in a level headed focused and decisive singleness of purpose when presented with opportunities or the resolution of problems. These are personality traits expressed by the Prince of Earth.
This is witnessed especially in Prince of Earth’s practicality in resolving troubles of the previous card, Material Trouble, resulting in the present card Material Success.
His steady personality and thinking is an illustration of the type of conduct required by ourselves if we are to put behind us the influences of the previous card Material Trouble and take full advantage of the present influence of Six Earth Material Success.
This is an individual who is aware of opportunities and how to efficiently apply them to their advantage.
Prince of Earth has the instinctive ability to determine practical uses and applications for items and thoughts and is adept at making positive decisions.
In our failure to understand what any minor arcana card is saying, we should allow ourselves to be driven back on our specific inner voice of the decan for resolution.
In this example of 6 of Earth, 6 of Pentacles, the conjunction of major arcana cards Hierophant and High Priestess, corresponding to Taurus and Moon, are the specific signature of this decan and will be projected through the personality type represented by the Prince of Earth.
