Four of Swords & Four of Pentacles tarot card combinations
Cards combination description
consolidating finances or material concerns, replenishing stock and exercising caution with what you have (also if these cards preceded by the Five of Pentacles).
Card 1 - Four of Swords
There is a quiet stillness that is present in the Four of Swords, a sense of calm peace that is contrasted so deeply with the pain in the Three of Swords. Here, in a church, there is a carving of a knight that lies upon a tomb with three swords hanging above him while the fourth one lies beneath him. These three swords are a reminder of the suffering that he has endured in the earlier card. The position of the fourth sword seems to be a signal that the fight has ended. A child and a woman are depicted by the stained glass place behind the statue, giving the scene a sense of warmth and welcoming after the retreat. The knight has his hands positioned as if he is praying. Full card's description
Card 2 - Four of Pentacles
This card depicts a man who is sitting on a stool, who is holding onto two pentacles in a very defensive and tight posture. It s almost as if he is hoarding them out of fear of loss. One pentacle is balanced precariously on his head, while another one is tightly clutched between his own hands, and there are two of them which are securely placed underneath his feet. He is making sure that there is absolutely no one touching his coins. At the same time, he is also unable to move because he is holding the coins so tightly. In other words, he is restrained from acting because he is holding too tight to his possessions. To some, money does not always bring freedom. Full card's description
