haves/have nots

I can't tell if I'm a kingpin or a pauper
Greedy little people in a sea of distress
Keep your more to receive your less
Unimpressed by material excess
Love is free love me say hell yes

~ Give It Away, Red Hot Chili Peppers
What have you got to give? What have you got to receive? The 6 of Earth is that fulcrum between having and not having, that give and take. As much as you might desire what someone has another someone desires what you have. Giving doesn't necessarily have to be material, by the way. Knowledge is a fine thing to share. Time, easily spent, is another share-worthy item. You don't have to give it all to everyone either. It's not necessary to deplete your bank account, financially or spiritually, in order to give.

Share what you can when you can. On the other side of that sharing coin, be ready to receive as the 6 of Earth isn't a one-sided deal. Give from the heart and receive gratitude, love, delight. And those things spread, by golly. What better contagion than love?

So.

If you've got and can give, today might be a good day to engage the exchange. If you've not got and need, know that the getting is good. However, giving for the sake of getting isn't an attractive aspect. Nor is expecting to receive because of not having. There is a little humble work to be done here at either end of the spectrum. As always, better to stand at center and respond as needed.
