Financial Outlook of the Four of Pentacles Tarot

When the Four of Pentacles tarot shows up in a reading, we are usually addressing a financial situation, whether it is going really well, in scarcity or obsessive control over it. Finances is something that we address everyday, regardless of what your circumstances are. If this tarot card shows up in a reading, it can play out to just about every area of your life.

The Four of Pentacles always asks you to look at your relationship with money. Are you friends with money, do you believe you deserve to have all that you need, are there feelings of envy for those who have more or false pride over accumulation and material possessions? Money is neither a good thing or a bad thing but it is necessary to what level of quality of life you want to live. If you are constantly striving and in lack, there is a belief system going on of not deserving. If you base your whole worth on the amount of money and possessions you have, you are missing the point of abundance and prosperity.

In reverse position, it can indicate mismanagement of money, greed, overspending or fear of the loss of your finances. It can also mean an overattachment to accumulation, the more you have, the more you want and need. The deeper lesson with the Four of Pentacles is to honor and respect money and wealth, but don’t become so attached that you lose sight of what’s really important to you – friends, family, happiness and love.

In general, the Four of Pentacles points to an anxiety about money, whether you have it or not in order to make you feel more secure. The key to being comfortable with money is to accept that it is just energy that flows here and then flows there, away from you and then back to you. Being anxious about it will stop that flow, expectation that it will always be there without struggle will keep the flow going.

Career: The Four of Pentacles indicates that you are working at a job you are not that thrilled with just to pay the bills. Unhappiness in your job effects everything in your life. If you are unhappy in your job, start looking elsewhere or look into getting more training to raise the bar on your career goals. There is always a way out and a solution if thought out.

Love and Romance: The Four of Pentacles is a card about fear of intimacy. It can represent obsessiveness by holding on too tight to a situation or lover, or someone is attempting to do that to you. This is an indication for you to step out of your comfort zone, whether you are single or with a partner, and to free up your fear and anxiousness of being possessive with love. Trying to control another person in a relationship or an outcome never turns out well.

Money: As mentioned above, you are dealing with an imbalanced relationship with finances. Either you are trying to hold on to every penny, fear there will never be enough, overspending or making the accumulation of money your focal point in life. You can break this grip of fear by reminding yourself that no matter what your circumstances, there is someone who is less fortunate than you are. Gratitude of a roof over your head and food on the table can change your relationship with money to one of always having plenty to cover everything. Share with others, even if it is only just a few dollars, it gets returned 10 or 100-fold always.

Health: The Four of Pentacles doesn’t always represent physical health but can indicate that you need to let go of old emotional wounds in order to move forward. It is also a representation of too much stress on the body from control issues, yours or being controlled by others. Find a meditative or peaceful way to release the worry and stress and it will not have the chance to move into the physical.

Spirituality: The Four of Pentacles makes reference to take the time to look within yourself for the answers if you have any fearful, lack or negative relationships with you deserving of having all your needs met effortlessly and beyond. Non-attachment is the answer as focusing too much on anything takes away your freedom of faith and trust and allows the ego to keep you in a futile controlling energy. Be open to change your attitudes and beliefs, as change is the only constant in life.

Susan Z’s Verdict

Your relationship with money, abundance and prosperity is always a mirror reflection of core foundations of self-worth and self-esteem. It does not mean that if you are not rolling in the dough, you have serious issues but if you have an on-going negative relationship with finances and do not believe that all your needs will be met as that is how the universe designed it, then start learning how to make friends with abundance instead of something you are always worried about.
