If you are the person that needs financial help, you must ask, but only for what you need and no more. Perhaps someone will offer you financial assistance soon or a loan.
The man in the card offers assistance but is that because he wishes to, or that he feels it is his duty? If you are the person in the card, question why you help others; does it make you feel less guilty, or do you do it from the heart? Are you being charitable because it looks good for your status, if so then your wealth is an illusion as depicted by the pentacles in the air.
