The Four of Pentacles – Possessiveness
A young girl clutches her riches to her bosom. She wears a fearful or suspicious expression upon her face. Four dark pentacles enclose her space.
The background is messy, murky and uninviting in contrast to the gentle, orderly though cold design of the diamond. There is a sense of avoidance and seclusion.
The satisfaction and companionship present in the Three of Pentacles has disappeared. While good management of one’s possessions is important, it can lead to negative emotions such as greed, isolation, and anxiety.
