The Four Of Pentacles Upright Meaning

The Four Of Pentacles can bring about contradicting meanings. It either suggests that your goals and dreams are nearing accomplishment and you’re going to reap the benefits, materialistically speaking. However, it may also mean that because of the new material world you find yourself in, you may turn into a new person- and not for the better. You may find yourself being greedy, stingy, judgemental, and overbearing when it comes to possessions. You always have a thwarted perception that your wealth is being compromised and thus, you become a harder, and bitter person in order to protect your wealth. Also, because of these feelings, making changes or jumping on another bandwagon of investments is not a good time. The same applies to love and relationships- don’t take a step into the unknown.

Regarding love, this is not the time to seek a serious commitment of the heart as your partner is more into him or herself. This in itself does not reflect lack of feelings for you, just that at this moment your partner is being somewhat selfish and perhaps is not ready to make a commitment. The universe is all about them. But that being said, you are on the right path and the pendulum will swing when commitments of the heart will be embraced.

Instead, stay steadfast with proven past choices.
