Four of Pentacles Upright Draw Meaning

On the one hand, you have a card that symbolizes satisfaction with the goals you have accomplished. Because of your endeavors, you are financially stable and hold substantial investments. You have also learned not to be so reckless with the money that you possess. To that end, it has made you independent and self-sufficient.

On the other hand, this stability could also indicate the waverings of a greedy and over-cautious individual. You must understand that this financial stability could turn you into a modern-day scrooge. Don’t be afraid to take risks. Wake up. Possessions shouldn’t be the most defining thing in your life. Instead of holding onto materials, open yourself up to change and move forward from that safety and security.

Move outside of your comfort zone.

Lastly, the Four of Pentacles could simply mean that the relationship hit some bumpy patches in the road but is coming to a good point with smooth sailing from here on out.

Conservatism with money has transformed into avarice, and you are becoming defensive of your possessions. Fear of losing what is important to you has made it difficult to open up to other people. You have spent too much time on your career to build even the beginnings of relationships, thus creating a void in your life.

Thus the reversed Four of Pentacles is a sign that you need to loosen up on the money. The money will be there, but people won’t. And when times are hard, it is not always the material possessions we own that become a rock, but the people we love.

About The Pentacles

The Pentacles are all about rewarding efforts and the physical world. The Pentacles deal with our physical abilities and talents; they are about the relationships to personal service, as well as offering physical rewards for living those experiences. The ultimate quest shall be for the wisdom and the power to serve others, not the self. The Pentacles are the element of earth (think down-to-earth), the season of winter, the direction of south, and the colours green and brown.
