The Four of Pentacles as a Daily Tarot Card
We’ve talked a lot recently about creativity and launching new projects and works. It’s only right that an earth card with the best anchoring effect such as the 4 of Disks should make an appearance to remind us that in order to grow well and successfully, we need to put good and strong foundations in place on which to build.
Differing in definition to its Rider Waite-Smith counterpart, the 4 of Pentacles, the 4 of Disks isn’t about stockpiling or being overly careful with your money. It talks of the establishment of your idea, the first materialisation of it and of law and order, that is, a routine in which you can guarantee established reliability and a place from which regularity can grow.
The symbols of the 4 elements of nature on the 4 corners of the stronghold encourage you to build your foundation in a rounded and grounded fashion, that you incorporate the the qualities of the 4 elements into your work.
If you’ve been stalling on the final details, or holding back on your decision to proceed with your plans, the presence of this card suggests that once you commit to your plan, providence will indeed move and you will begin to see the first stages of growth and something very tangible to continue to build on.
