Gilded Tarot


A man in rich purple robes embroidered with gold grips four pentacles in his arms. He has taken pleasure in achieving monetary worth. But money is an abstraction, a representation for things necessary to life or that give life beauty and pleasure. He hast lost track of that and so he stands alone in his cold pride, neither sharing his bounty nor even really enjoying it himself. He reflects an extreme of Major Arcana IV, the Emperor. When the Emperor provides order for the betterment of life, all is well. When he imposes order for order's sake, life becomes sterile.

You possess a certain amount of resources, and you've become possessive of them. You are hoarding your money, your time, your abilities. You've lost sight of what these things are for and you face a lonely, unfulfilled future unless you use your resources wisely.

Be aware of the opposite extreme of giving away all you have so that you are depleted and have nothing left to offer.
