Today is the first snow storm of the season, so it’s a welcome chang from the blazing 90 degree days we’ve been having for the last 3 months. Finally feels like fall is around the corner and that means everyone’s most favorite holiday: Halloween!
But that’s still over a month away so let’s get to it today!
The Four of Penatacles! I love pulling this card in this deck because I love the detail and the composition of the scene. Sorry for the shadows, I don’t have much natural light to work with today so my overhead kitchen light is casting some wack shadows.
Pentacles referes to material wealth and the material world in general. Fours represent stability and foundations. Most of the time this card is very positive, representing stability and financial wealth coming our way. However, whether this deck or the Rider-Waite version, this deck always makes me feel like I should be wary of greediness or hoarding of wealth.
Even in this card, all I can see is a greedy bride terrorizing a town (bridezilla, anyone?). In the Rider-Waite illustrations, you can see a man holding tightly to large gold coins.
But that’s the cool thing about reading Tarot, especially intuitive reading; you may see something else in this card that I don’t and that can give a much different insight. But that means we both have something to bring to the table to discuss and foster and grow on. And that’s how we grow: we discuss and disagree and learn! Always call me out if you see something different than me! I want to grow!
Today, I take away that I should be wary of greed, from myself and from others and I should remember to be thankful for all that I’ve already been given and recieved.
So our current running tally of the cards we’ve pulled so far:
- Four of Pentacles
- Three of Wands
- Two of Swords
