 Key Meanings: Security, self-improvement, and holding on to money.

The Four of Pentacles shows the need for stability and establishing a firm foundation. If you have suffered past hardship, the Four of Pentacles shows the tough times are over, as now your work pays off.

While this doesn’t indicate a huge windfall (see Ten of Pentacles for this), you will have enough money and acknowledgment to feel satisfied.

The card also shows protection of assets and traditional values. Proving a strong foundation for a growing family may be important to you now, so you may consider moving to a new home or investing in a small business that will bring you future dividends.

In work, you attain a position that is very secure, so if your work is temporary, for example, the Four of Pentacles can show you being offered a permanent contract.

An additional meaning of the card is the miser, as the male figure is clinging hard to his coin, but this money has come from hard work. You will value what you h ave achieved, and for now, want to keep it for yourself.
