High arcan Empress and low arcan Four of Pentacles combination - possibly a possessive mother figure who doesn’t want to let go, smother love.
Empress tarot card

Card 1 - Empress

The Empress depicts a woman sitting on a throne. From the abundant nature that surrounds her, we can assume that this woman represents the Earth Mother archetype, a goddess of fertility. Her world is ruled by venus which means that there is complete love, harmony, fertility and luxury by the grace of this goddess. The woman herself has blonde hair crowned with stars, signaling her divine connection with the mystical realm. She is dressed in a pomegranate-patterned robe that represents fertility, and she is seated on cushions embroidered with a venus sign. She is surrounded by an enchanting green forest with a river streaming through it. The Empress brings abundance and blessings in the readings of those she meets.

Associations:

Similar or supporting cards:
Seven of Pentacles (gathering in your harvest) Ten of Pentacles (home and family). Strengthens indications when appearing with other marriage cards.

Opposing or contradictory cards:
The Emperor is the male yang to The Empress female yin, where the opposite forces of duality complement one another. Four of Pentacles (withholding) The Devil (creates blocks)

Empress combinations
When The Empress precedes another card try adding, “nurturing” before the interpretation of the following card as you start to explore possible meanings. When The Empress completes a grouping it tends to indicate the abundance and satisfaction of a successful harvest (metaphorically speaking).

Four of Pentacles tarot card

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.

Associations:

Similar or supporting cards:
Two of Swords (stalemate) Hanging Man (non-movement) The Hermit (prudent) Temperance (moderation)  

Opposing or contradictory cards:
Six of Pentacles (sharing) The Fool (carefree)

Four of Pentacles combinations
Check surrounding cards to find the context of what creates the reason of the Four, but as a root card (start of a chain) check to see what follows to release it or the progression. As always, there are many possibilities…
