The Four of Disks, illustrates the establishment of the Universe in three dimensions. Thus, the generating idea is displayed in its full material sense.
Here the Sun is in the sign Capricorn, the sign of the Sun's rebirth. The very large and solid disks form a fortress, representing Law and Order., maintained by authoritarian vigilance.The Disks all contain one of the signs of the 4 elements and are represented as squares, making revolution an opposing idea. Never the less, they revolve as Capricorn is the point "where the sun turns Northward", The solidity of the Fortress looks to be stationary and immobile, but as we know, the best defense is violently active which is depicted by the orange background color of martial activity..
Being a 4, in suit of Earth, the heaviness of this card out-ways any consideration of weakness and is the Power which dominates and stabilizes everything. It is the fortifying of energy in one place, enabling the ability to do work. If there is a weakness, it is the fact that as Four, the element is solidified to its absolute degree, and in order for change to occur, the fortress must be remodeled As it is solid, the power of the Four of Disks, suggest that aggressive behavior is contain, so the Power of the Four, manages its affairs more by negotiation and pacific methods.
When the Four of Disks is thrown during a reading, the querent (the one who asks the question) will experience or has experienced for the next or past 4 weeks or 4 months, gain of money and influence. The receiving of presents is suggested. The Four of Disks, bespeaks of assured material gain, success, rank, dominion, and completed earthly power that leads to nothing beyond.
As altered by dignity, this card can also mean, prejudice, covetous, and suspicious behavior.. There is a careful and orderly presentation but with discontent., showing little enterprise or originality. This is obvious, for when we put up strong walls, to gather our power about us, we also restrict our motion. This restriction is shown by the small drawbridge/roadway leading out of the fortress of the Four of Disks.
