Image description on Four of Pentacles Mermaid Tarot
Do you ever feel bored with your own life? I understand that feeling. Let’s come and sit on my ledge, all I can focus on is my hair, stroking it from head to toe… just sitting there, brushing it, stroking it, and not thinking about anyone or anything. Allowing ourselves to lean on and get comfortable with boredom also has some benefits. Between strokes, my mind goes blank and all I have is the present, this moment – the moment when there is nothing around but me, the sound of the waterfall, and the feeling of each stroke on the hair.
The message of Four of Pentacles Mermaid Tarot in a reading
The Four of Pentacles Mermaid Tarot is a card in the Pentacles suit of Tarot that represents possession, control and the complex mind, and the disliking towards human change. This card brings a lesson that this world is constantly changing, it is necessary to be more flexible, creative, and relaxed.
In a Tarot reading, this is a card that conveys possessiveness and control which come from instinct. That controlling “scream” represents an ego that craves power and always imposes on others, and the desire to reach the top in every field.
Although this card speaks of certainty and bravery because, in difficult and chaotic situations, consistency is the key to bringing everything back to the right trajectory, the Four of Pentacles Mermaid Tarot is saying control will become excessive and cause inhibition of all creativity as well as individual and collective ideas.

Change is happening around and is a necessary thing.

Change is sometimes the law of nature and that no one can control it.
Meaning of Four of Pentacles Mermaid Tarot in the upright position
The Four of Pentacles Mermaid Tarot has a lot to teach you about reconnecting with the present. You may have put yourself in a state of paralysis or lethargy, but this is not exactly what you need right now. Instead, allow yourself to reconnect with the basic, everyday experiences of life. When you are connected and immersed in reality, it is easier to let go and find new joy in things you have not experienced before.
