Understanding the Tarot - The Meanings of the Cards
The Suit of Cups

Four of Pentacles

The person that this card refers to is determined to build a secure foothold in life, and to protect his possessions from outsiders. If other cards support it, then this card could also represent an inheritance or legacy passed down.

Four of Pentacles Reversed

No will to go endure any more. A sickly person who has a need to be cared for. Also, a suspenseful situation.
