LORD OF EARTHLY POWER
SUN IN CAPRICORN
The Four of Pentacles is Chesed in Assiah. It is the power of the Mercy in the Active (Material) world. What a great combination! Chesed, ruled by Jupiter is more than happy to shine its light on the Active World. Jupiter, after all is a planet of growth and expansion.
Furthermore, in Four of Pentacles, Sun is in Capricorn. What a self-assured combination. The Sun, a planet of ego and self-realization, finally reaches Capricorn, a sign of ambition and tenacity. As a result, this card is almost a bit too self-assured and smug!
This Four of Pentacles is the fullest expression, the grounding of the Chesed energies. It is assured material gain, and earthly power completed (material – nothing else).
The Old Man in the Four of Swords has a very sly look on his face. In his arms, he is holding onto his four pentacles with all his might and vigor. The four symbols inside the pentacles represent the four elements (Fire, Water, Air, Earth). These elements all come together in Malkut.
The Sun is shining (Sun in Capricorn). A Capricorn Goat is ever-present, observing (if not monitoring) the Old Man.
