Card Meaning: Four Of Pentacles

Four of Pentacles


   The man on the card is obviously wealthy and influential. He is sitting on the throne and the city is behind him, With the four prong crown as a symbol of the material universe on his head we can clearly assume he is the ruler of this domain. But then we see that above his head, in his arms and beneath his feet are pentacles. This man are not just ruling over this domain, he is obsessed by owning it. He is miser totally burdened by his possession.


Positive: increasing wealth, material power, gaining influence.

Negative: miserlines, delays, attachment.

  A crowned figure, having a pentacle over his crown, clasps another with hands and arms; two pentacles are under his feet. He holds to that which he has. Divinatory Meanings: The surety of possessions, cleaving to that which one has, gift, legacy, inheritance. Reversed: Suspense, delay, opposition.
