Money Makes The World Go Around

Four of Pentacles

My first meeting with this card was my first indication that all was not right in the Peaceful Kingdom. But it has many sides, and I have seen quite a lot more since. 
Looking at the image I see an old man sitting, coveting one thing, seeking to gather as much of it as he can. This represents clinging to something to the exclusion of all else.

The Pentacles are about work, and Spiritual endeavor; about the Earth, and things in the external world; the idea of abundance.

FOURS represent structure, stability, foundation, work, reality, organization, manifestation. Practical attainment, tangible results, crystalization, coagulation. Stagnation, logic, reason. Power and control. Discipline. The material world and the physical universe.

Corresponding Major Arcana
The Emperor

The Four of Pentacles is about maintaining Status Quo. The ideas of possession of things, balanced budget, financial security, are key words for this card. Beware of being too conservative. Fear of taking risks that a person may lose what they have comes into play here. Learn to delegate rather than doing everything yourself.
Fours can also represent a person who is an 'emotional black hole,' seeking affection, attention, all things from those around them, but rarely giving in return.
It seems I have a lot to work with this week.
As CF would say, 'Remind you of anyone?'
