We may be so busy looking at the wrong side that we neglect what is before us. Maybe we are accepting defeat even before the battle has begun. In a reading, the Four of Cups can indicate that you are wrapped up for the moment in your own world.

Four of Pentacles

To be childish and demanding. Since pentacles are mostly associated with finance issues, it could mean you are fighting to have control over ownership of something. You are probably creating obstacles for yourself by refusing to change.

Keywords: Possessive, Control, Stubborn, Selfish, Status & Wealth, Security, Savings & investment, greedy.

A running theme in these suits numbered four is indicative of creativity and manifestation of dreams through hard work. It gives a firm foundation and structure.
