The THOTH FOUR OF DISKS: Power
[Pentacles in other decks]
...condition of assured material gain, and earthly power completed but nothing beyond. (Waite).
Here we have a fortress
made by the grounding of Chesed (mercy)in Assiah, the Material world. Held by constant authority and vigilance, a type of Law and order holds the Four Alchemical Elements in balance.
Air (mind), Water (emotions), Fire (Spirit) and Earth, are all centered around material security and in doing so "nothing ventured, nothing gained", becomes a problem of stasis. However, in the future, stasis will be removed by the Greater Spiritual Self (A Tower Moment) to keep things moving. But for now things look under control and sitting back and enjoying material security seems justified. Here we also have gift, legacy and inheritance.
Astrologically we have Sun in Capricorn
which assures the light and warmth of success but nothing beyond the moment.
The Thoth 4 of Disks is representative of the Rational Mind in total control of creative energy for material wealth; boundaries against change are erected and the illusion of security is enjoyed.
Now this feeling of benevolent strength
, is indeed wonderful but we must also invest in the motion of wealth and send it into prosperity, as prosperity is spreading your wealth around by spending it, so being flexible with your wealth is recommended. Therefore, this card reminds us that damming a river can secure water, but if we don't leave room for flow, we stifle the prosperity all around us for a false sense of security. This easily becomes Avarice and blockages of thought, empathy and in-action shall naturally follow from excessive devotion to materialistic rewards.
However, if the drawbridge of our mind, (seen on card) is open for "outside" traffic we can make something tangible and take concrete steps towards creating security in the physical world that actually enhances that security for others as well. So when all is examined, this card represents a positive with a caveat of caution ; a kind of " good for you", that can only keep being good if you expand it to "good for others" as well. The draw bridge is down and the gate open on this illustration of the 4-of Disks, for we must allow flowing change in order to really stay Secure in our power.
