The 4 of Pentacles relates to the realm of Earth and physical life, of manifesting and abundance. The number 4 raises awareness of security and stability.
This image in this card conveys the feeling of a need to protect oneself and to preserve personal physical resources – energy, time, money and assets, work, investments - that we may use to create that abundance.
The figure looks us straight in the eye and clutches their 4 upright pentacles. S/he seems to be braced for a significant challenge. Is s/he challenging us, daring us, to even try and divest of him/her, of physical time, health and energy, endowments or possessions?
As an act of self-preservation, the 4 Pentacles can suggest the need for temporary act of self-protection and 'selfishness'.
The day before I had had some skin cancers on my forehead, nuked. from my forehead, the result of being an active, outdoors child of the ‘60s with pale and freckled skin. I'd also had a double A & B Flu injection. Feeling a bit flat and achy, I decided to opt-out of a pre-arranged, group-organised visit to a gallery. Tarot readings were deferred and rescheduled. People were disappointed but, as this card can suggest that ignoring your wellbeing - a critical aspect for creating abundance - can only work against you.
