Get to know the meaning of the card Four of Pentacles

Four of Pentacles Tarot card meaning

The Four of Pentacles depicts in its classic image a king sitting on a small throne. Behind him in the background we see a city, and he himself, dressed in a red and purple outfit, is holding four Pentacles: two under his feet, and one each in his hands and on his head. The Four of Pentacles, like all fours, indicates some kind of stability, and due to the fact that it belongs to the Suit of Pentacles, it also alludes to earthly and material matters. The card and the person depicted on it is very often called a miser, because he or she is clearly not willing to change his or her attitude, or share what he or she has. The Four of Pentacles can represent a person who is not only focused on financial matters, but also has a materialistic approach to life. However, the person itself will be rather happy with his or her current position and the situation he or she is in, and this card predicts further business success. This can be realized through successful financial investments, but also through your frugality and tendency towards workaholism. The card encourages you to enjoy your possessions, and warns against too much isolation in matter and stagnation due to fear of losing accumulated wealth.

Upright Four of Pentacles Tarot card meaning

The upright Four of Pentacles is a very good card in financial questions, as it heralds complete success in this field. The actions you have started on the Three of Pentacles have brought you the expected results, and you can enjoy the accumulated material goods that are the result of your work. The upright Four of Pentacles is the card of successful investments and setting new goals, which in the long run may bring you and your family further tangible benefits. Although the person shown on the card tends to save and hoard money, they will still do well in wealth creation and financial management no matter what they are. The Four of Pentacles in an upright position also represents satisfaction with your current employment situation. On the one hand it may indicate a stable and secure relationship that you do not want to change, on the other hand it may indicate an attempt to appropriate your partner and a morbid jealousy towards your other half. On your part, there may also be a big problem in sharing money and feelings in a relationship.

Upright Four of Pentacles love, sex and relationships Tarot card meaning

The upright Four of Pentacles in relationship matters primarily indicates that there is no change in your current situation, which can be both good and bad for you. If you are currently in a relationship, the Four of Pentacles says that it is most likely satisfying for you, and you are finding everything you need in it at the moment. The time you have invested and the work you have put into the relationship means that you don't want things to change, so you are trying hard to keep the other person just for you. However, if you are not the one in control of the relationship, you may find that your life is currently being restricted by jealous and possessive behavior from your partner. All of this can lead to the destruction of even the most beautiful love, so it is very important that you work together to resolve any problems that may be present. If the Four of Pentacles answers your question about finding a new love, it will help you to overcome the grief and anger held inside. This card also indicates your withdrawn attitude and isolation from the outside world, making it difficult for you to meet a new person with whom you can form a happy relationship. The card encourages you to stop being afraid and open yourself up to what is new and unknown.

Reversed Four of Pentacles Tarot card meaning

The Four of Pentacles reversed suggests that you are perhaps too focused on accumulating wealth, and that you are unable to enjoy and benefit from what you have. The person shown on the Four of Pentacles in reversed position is very reluctant to share his or her wealth with others. He is not willing to change his attitude, even if it has led him to some kind of loss. And this one can be even bigger, because the reversed Four of Pentacles card speaks of bad investments. All this makes you panicky about preserving what's left of your wealth, and you're taking a defensive position in the current situation, closed off to new opportunities and the people around you. The materialistic approach to life is causing you to neglect other important aspects of your life, sacrificing the people and relationships that are important to you. The reversed Four of Pentacles also heralds job loss and unsuccessful financial transactions, so you need to be cautious about spending your saved money now. Keep an eye on your spending and manage your resources carefully.

Reversed Four of Pentacles love, sex and relationships Tarot card meaning

The reversed Four of Pentacles in matters about love very often indicates fear of losing a partner and unwillingness to change the current situation. The card also speaks of feelings that are ruled by the desire to own and control the other person, which can lead to destruction of the current relationship. However, the Four of Pentacles in reversed position can also indicate an upcoming improvement in love affairs. This is the moment when you finally feel that you can overcome your fear and negative feelings. This will allow your relationship to move forward by getting rid of past burdens. In some cases, it could also mean the end of a relationship that was toxic for both of you. More often than not, however, it will indicate a resolution of problems and a change of situation for the better. If you are not currently in a relationship then the reversed Four of Pentacles indicates a moment when you are finally able to release your feelings and open up to new people in your life. This card encourages you to leave the past behind and try something completely new. This will help you to break free from your previous limitations, and to get to know yourself and your needs even better.
