Four of Pentacles Reversed Tarot Card


The Four of Pentacles reversed typically represents the negative attributes of greed, materialism, and extreme amounts of self protection. The card can represent the strong presence of these things or the release and freedom from their effects. The interpretation often depends on the other cards that appear alongside it in an online tarot card reading.

The Four of Pentacles reversed may indicate that you are holding onto something far more than you should. This could be referencing money, possessions, people, or past situations. Now is the time to focus on the present and your own choices. You cannot control the actions of others, so it is best to relax and let it go.


With the reversed Four of Pentacles, it is possible that you have become exceptionally greedy and stingy. You are extremely materialistic due to a fear of poverty. This leads you to be very defensive of all of your possessions.

On the other hand, you may feel particularly generous right now. While it is always nice to share your good fortune with others, you must be careful. There are those out there who will try to take advantage of your generosity.

Social Interactions

When trying to engage with others socially, you might be finding it hard to connect. You are very protective of your emotions. This defensive state has made you afraid to open up to others. You are not sure that you can trust them completely.

The card may also be a sign that you have stopped trying to take control of the people and situations in your life. You’re finally able to approach things with a more relaxed and open attitude.

Financial Concerns

While the Four of Pentacles reversed may represent that you are reluctant to spend money and have a firm grasp on your cash, in many cases it means the exact opposite. You’re spending far too much right now. It’s time to get better control of your finances. There is no need for you to fear the process. While you will have to make changes in order to see results, you can make a difference in your current financial situation. You just have to buckle down and get moving.

Another interpretation of this card is that it references a recent loss of something very valuable. You may have lost it due to theft, gambling, a get rich quick scheme, or a risky investment fail. No matter what the cause, this may serve as a warning that you are out of control at the moment. It’s time to stop engaging in reckless behaviors before you lose even more.

Looking for Love

You’ve made your career and material acquisitions the focus of your attention for a very long time. While this has led to financial gains, it leaves you with an emptiness as well.

You’re lacking authentic connection with others, both friendships and romantically. You’ve walled yourself in with work and financial responsibilities that consume all of your time and energy.

In order to break free of this prison that you’ve created for yourself, you will have to find a way to let something go. Evaluate what it is that you can give up. Keep in mind that your career and financial successes will only get you so far in life – there are many other things out there to enjoy as well.

The root of your problems may very well be a fear of falling in love. You simply need to be yourself and be real. Don’t be afraid to show a little bit of vulnerability if you want to give a relationship a chance. Stop letting your fear of rejection hold you back. You have to be open if you want to get to know people and have a chance at falling in love.


If you are currently in a relationship, the Four of Pentacles reversed may be a sign that you are ready to move forward in a positive way. You’re ready to let go of the fear and resentment that has been holding you back from taking the next step.

If you have been in a toxic relationship, you have finally reached a point where you are ready to let it go once and for all. This is a very necessary step. Now is your time to break free and move forward. It may be hard, but the long term effects will be positive.

If you have recently broken up, you may be struggling to cope with the loss. You may even find yourself having feelings for your ex. But you’re ready to move forward to better things.

Try Something New

The reversed Four of Pentacles may be a reminder that it is good to step outside of your comfort zone sometimes. Don’t let your need for stability and security hold you back. At first, it will be tough. You’ll likely feel shaky, anxious, and nervous. But there’s something big on the horizon waiting for you. This is the first step in a great journey of personal development.


Times may be tough at your work right now. Your company could be facing job losses, a failing business, or bankruptcy. This is not the time to take a career or business gamble. If you choose to engage in risky behaviors now, it may result in you losing future valuable opportunities that will improve your situation.

When things are rocky, it is only natural to be worried about your job safety and security. Unfortunately, this worrying may only make things worse for you, since it frequently decreases the quality of your work. Instead of spending your time worrying, focus your energy on producing the best work you can. Keep pushing through with hard work and determination. If you start taking shortcuts now, it may very well backfire on you.

This card may also mean that you are generous to your coworkers. You spend time helping them learn and brainstorm. When positive feedback comes through, you’re happy to share the credit with them.

The Four of Pentacles reversed may also be a warning of the theft of your business, clients, or ideas. Watch your back and be careful of who you disclose information, ideas, and trade secrets to.


You’ve been holding onto some negative energy that is impacting your health in a negative way. But now you are ready to move forward in a positive and healthy manner. Perhaps you share your fears and concerns with a trustworthy friend. Or you might have decided to forgive someone and release your anger regarding a past situation where you were wronged. This changes will bring positive improvements to your overall health and wellbeing.


You are ready to move forward in your spiritual journey. All you have to do is let go of your negativity, regrets, and fears. You’re about to make tremendous progress. Stay grounded and approach everything with an open mind and heart.
