Four of Pentacles Tarot Card Card DESCRIPTION: illustration, colors, and symbolism

  • Four of Pentacles Tarot Card shows a man wearing a crown and sitting on a stool, beyond the boundaries of his hometown. His crown represents wealth and status, something which is further amplified by the stage his stool has been placed upon. His arms are wrapped tightly around a coin as if he fears he may lose it if he loosens his grip. He balances another pentacle on his head, impeding his connection with spirit. Two more pentacles are securely located beneath his feet. The coins beneath his feet symbolize material possessions, while the coin on his head represents mastery and authority here on earth. He doesn’t want anyone to take his coins. However, because he is so attached to his money, he can’t move or go anywhere. In the background is a city, symbolizing opportunity. The colors of his clothing, a red robe with blue trim, are symbolic of passion and contemplation respectively. Sitting high above a vast city and not able to go anywhere, this man of immense power seems isolated and alone, focused only on the financial aspects of life. Perhaps he has lost it all because of his quest. The black shawl that envelops him like a cloud represents the money’s control of his existence. Even so, the smug look on his face seems to be one of pride and satisfaction. He has no one to speak to, not even the friends and family members in the community behind him. The man finds himself stuck in one place with a singular fixation: wealth. He appears happy with his finance-focused existence, even though he has sacrificed so much.
