The Six of Earth reminds us of our responsibility and duty to our family, especially the younger members; it asks us to be selfless and in service to those who are in need or dependent on us for love, care, and support.
If you have children, it is your responsibility to provide them with a home that is safe and free from potential harm. It is your duty to provide for their physical and emotional needs. Love and shelter them. As a parent, it is your responsibility to set a good example, to be a role model to those around you.
Educate them; teach them to be truthful, respectful, and to do unto others as they would have done unto them.
Teach them about life outside the home – of nature. of the world they dwell on,and their role as custodians and caretakers of this blue-green planet.
Teach by word and deed. Lead by example.
If you have no childresn, the Six of Earth comes to remind you that it is your responsibility to both humanity and Gaia to become the best person you can be. Help where and when you can in your local community. Teach and share your knowledge whnever possible. Lead by example and be responsible for your words and deeds within the broader community. Look out into the world and understand that we share this planet and its resources, and each of us needs to do what we can to protect the animals, forests, and oceans.
All of us have a duty of care to both family and the environment.
While the Six of Earth represents responsibility and duty of care, overall, it can also signify that there is a matter that needs to be taken care of in the present. If this is the case, do do forget; do not delay.
