The Four of Pentacles is such an interesting card to pull for this month's theme. This can be a card of frugality, expressing concerns about holding on to the wealth and resources that have been amassed. That seems relevant in a month of holidays when many people are spending their hard-earned money on elaborate celebrations and travel. It is also a time when we traditionally show our love for others through gifts of material goods, additionally fitting for this card that is also concerned with identity, and how we humans express that identity through material possessions. These meanings are clearly illustrated in this deck's imagery -- the suit symbol is connected to each part of the figure's being: head, heart, and foot. The central Pentacle is tightly gripped in the figure's arms. Explore the full reading here.
