Four of Coins ~ Steady as You Go!
Tarot Tuesday! The card for the week is the Four of Coins (Pentacles), representing: Manifestation, power and integrity. Four is the number of foundations and stability, and in the realm of coins, it translates to both material and spiritual success. Not huge, blow-your-socks-off-success, more a happy sigh of relief of still “being in the game” and experiencing a stable platform in which to move forward. (Works for me!)
This card is a reevaluation point. A time to consider what you want to do with your new-found success. To use a garden metaphor: Which of your plants are blossoming? What are the weeds that you need to pluck? Sometimes stability requires clearing out what’s not working, so you can focus on what is. The goal here is to continue down the path of steady growth and not get ahead of yourself.
Integrity is another aspect of the 4 of Coins. The shadow side of this card is becoming overly greedy and focused on accumulating wealth. Or it can be becoming too rigid, too structured around your growth, to the point that you forget to let in the light of new opportunities. At the end of the day, it’s all about your relationship with success, and what feels right to you. Some would say that the 4 of Coins is a test of character, meaning that now is a time to be clear about what you stand for and what you want to manifest in the future.
This week, stay the course, find balance and celebrate your successes—big and small!
