The Four of Pentacles upright tarot card represents the need to find peace with our money. This is a sensitive topic in the world of tarot, spirituality and yoga.
For many in this space, they haven’t quite got this figured out. If this is you, then perhaps the timing of this tarot card is fundamentally perfect.
Naturally, this isn’t financial advice. Do your own resesearch and consult a financial planner for personalized advice. This is merely a tarot card reading for entertainment purposes only.
The Four of Pentacles upright
Our relationship with our financial situation is something that we often need to tap into. We need to make peace and realize that at times, we simply can’t have all that we desire.
It seems like on the surface that the Law of Attraction has lied to us. Or perhaps, those who promote such strategies lie to us. In actual fact – they aren’t lying at all! You can’t simply manifest money out of thin air. It’s attraction (concious thought) + action (doing the work) that gets the ultimate result.
We all want things to be easy. It’s human nature! We’d love to keep things easy for you though unfortunately, it often isn’t the case. You have before you a personal journey that can be made easier with the right tools and resources, but you still need to walk through.
Clearly if we can simply get our money situation right, then just about everything naturally falls into place. We can focus upon things that bring us joy without the fear of missing repayments and the rest.
The Four of Pentacles upright is a ‘Yes’ tarot card. We’ve done our reading using the Rider-Waite tarot cards and you may choose any that you desire for a love or general reading. The meanings are very similar which surround the control of financial spending.
We see a man depicted on this tarot card. He’s very much attached to his wealth like no one else in his vast lands. He doesn’t want to spend one cent if we can avoid it! As such, his children will suffer as they cannot have all their needs met.
The very thought of parting ways to improve his mindset is something that he has avoided. Financial authors are out there to help us better improve our understanding and handling of money, yet this man cannot even bring himself to the plate to improve his odds of success.
Now – he’s taking a slightly wise move. When we compare this to someone that overspends and uses credit cards (not that they had credit cards in those days…), we see the man at least has some savings. If an emergency comes up, at least he has something in the bank saved up.
Unfortunately such choices have underminded his future and those around him. He’s missed out on social events in his ultimate quest to save money. He belives the way to real wealth is to save, save and save some more! If he only knew how wrong he is.
A better perspective
Those who have freedom don’t save their way to success. They work hard and spend their money wisely. Success in our wealth comes in the balance of cash in and cash out. It’s also a game of choosing not to upgrade our lifestyle when additional money comes in the door.
This man has chosen a very safe approach but has eaten in to his happiness. A holistic approach allows us to both have fun but save our way at the same time, so there’s always dollars in the bank account.
Go ahead and read any financial book. They more or less say the some thing! Build a solid budget, a savings plan and live within your means. A secure and stable life is what we should all strive for, but don’t limit your lifestyle so low that it affects both you and those around you.
A sense of flexibility is all it takes. Realize that we cannot take our money with us once we pass back into our spiritual equivalent. We’re here for such a short period of time. Enjoy the moment responsibly.
It’s time to re-evaluate the situation. Has your financial plan not quite gone to ‘plan’? Do you actually have a plan? Saving our way to the top and choosing safety isn’t effective.
Taking some risks is OK. In fact, it’s welcomed today. If we go back 20 years ago, the opportunities online were so far and few in between. Today it’s abundantly clear that anyone can build an online business. Do you know how many online yoga teachers there are? Astounding!
Just breathe. This is a heavy and sensitive card. No one wants to talk about money but it’s truly what makes our world go around. If we are to experience all that we desire, it’s time to get ourselves in order.
Let’s enjoy our money responsibly by balancing the spending and the saving elements.
