Four of Pentacles Symbolism in Raider Waite Tarot Deck
Four of Pentacles in Raider Waite Tarot Deck depicts a crowned person with a pentacle above her head; she holds another pantacle in her arms; two more pantacles under the person’s feet.
The four Pentacles or Coins means, an excessive concern for the future, manifested in greed, avarice and deeply rooted fear of any changes. Such an “attitude” is inherently hostile to life, because any attempts to “stop the moment”, to keep everything as it is, are not only in vain, but also contradict the natural course of things. Thus, this map usually indicates that we have only one step left to stagnation (stagnation), and is often a harbinger of the Tower (Major Arcana Card 16), which means the hardening of the hardened crust. If the Four Deof Pentacles or Coins finds themselves in a position that requires such behavior from us, this means that at the moment we need to concentrate, limit ourselves to something, retreat – or, having got down to business, not to let him out of our hands.
