The Meaning of the "Four of Pentacles" Tarot Card
The Symbolism of the Tarot Card:
A short looking man sits on a hard chair, cradling one of his pentacles in his arms, and planting his feet firmly on two more. The only one that is unsecured is on his head. He is in command of his wealth, perhaps a bit too firmly so. He is not a king but a minor nobleman, from the cut of his clothing and the small stature of his throne. A large town is in the background.The Meaning of the Tarot Card:
Ability to manage money properly may yield future results. One has to be careful with how closely they hold their wealth, as they may be perceived as miserly by the rest of the world. The man in this card wants to be the King of Pentacles, but is not yet because he is forgetting about the fertility of wealth - the need to invest to make wealth grow. Also a gift, legacy, or inheritance may come from a person that you previously thought to be stingy. A coming together of various forces for the benefit of the individual.
NOTE: The Tarot of the Day card is intended to be read in a general sense and is not meant to address any specific questions. You can think of this card as representing a universal or widely-shared event. A daily tarot card is not the same as a card pulled individually as part of a personal reading.
So what is a daily tarot card?
We sometimes get asked "what the point" of the Daily Tarot is. After all, with our ever popular ZodiacTarot tarotscopes which are far more specific to each individual's zodiac sign, what's the less-specific "daily tarot card" for anyway?
The short answer is: We all live in the same universe. Not 12 different universes. iFate has dozens of other oracles, divination systems, horoscopes and tools for expanding personal insight. All of these tools offer unique and specific guidance. The daily tarot card isn't one of them.
The point of the daily tarot card is to unify our experience around just one important facet of foresight. It's not an Aries, Libra or Capricorn "thing". It's a humans thing. From that perspective, the daily tarot should not be taken as 'personal' guidance per se -- but as a blunt tool for understanding (or predicting) something more general.
A daily tarot card might represent:
- A more general trend.
- A large event.
- An important announcement.
- The significance of some high profile person.
What to look for in a daily tarot card
We would never suggest a 'right way' or a 'wrong way' to interpret the daily tarot card, but we do pay attention to what the cards are telling us:
When minor arcana cards appear in the daily tarot, we look for the message in more mundane, ordinary things. When major arcana cards appear in the daily tarot, they tend to speak to large, "macro" forces at work in our lives or on the world stage.
Likewise, when court cards (Pages, Knights, Queens and Kings) appear in the daily tarot, we look for the significance of a corresponding person in our day.
Needless to say, the Tarot of the Day doesn't replace more direct, user-specific readings. But since we've been pulling daily tarot cards on iFate.com since late 2007, we've always felt they add a framework for every day -- a theme which more often than not becomes apparent as our day progresses. We hope you agree.
