Four of Pentacles Wild Unknown Tarot first suggests material gain and stability. There is only good news about bank accounts and families. But underneath, this card is a warning: don’t become too possessive or too controlling. Holding too tightly in the material world will only make you tough, stagnant, and displease others. Wealth is just a concept.
Four pentagons form a diamond. They are linked together by intricately intertwined threads of blue, magenta, and yellow. Lines in the background pull towards the diamond, but cannot penetrate its defenses. There is a sense of security and stability in the image, but at what cost? Diamond is one of the hardest materials in existence. Four of Pentacles Wild Unknown Tarot is often associated with stubbornness and inflexibility. In some cases, it can be as beautiful as a diamond. But in other cases, being too hard and fast can be detrimental. As humans, we sometimes become fixated on our ways for better or for worse. This is the working energy in this card.
It is natural to feel the need for safety and protection, but this card often shows a manufactured sense of protection. By clinging to anything – furniture, land, ideas – we believe we can maintain control. Instead of an actual sense of security, the Four of Pentacles often suggests an illusion of security – an illusion we try to perpetuate by clinging to the familiar.
However, the inevitable truth is that change is constant. There are times when you have to hold on to the status quo. But as a long-term strategy, this approach is not sustainable. You cannot micromanage everything. You must learn to use your personal influence while also accepting that some things are simply out of your hands. The pentagrams in Four of Pentacles Wild Unknown Tarot are linked together, presumably to try to control them. This is not a bad thing. In fact, because the pentagram is related to the material sector, this card can sometimes affirm the importance of saving money and protecting your possessions. But often, if you are not careful, this type of behavior can turn into hoarding and short-sightedness.
