UPRIGHT : Possessions, Conservatism, Greed, Savings, Control


The Four of Pentacles describes a man sitting on the other side of his hometown. Both his legs are on the pentacles, his hands are tightly wrapped around another, and the fourth is on his head, marking his connection with his spirit. The man doesn’t want to share his wealth with anyone else. He has lost all contact from his society because of his possessiveness towards his money. His attachment to his wealth has made it impossible for him to move around and connect with others. He has a single point of fascination- money, which makes him feel like he is just stuck in one place.
