THE FOUR OF PENTACLES/ THE FOUR OF DISKS, The Spiral Tarot and Thoth Tarot Card Comparisons.

THOTH FOUR OF DISKS: Power
[Pentacles in the Spiral Tarot and other decks]
...condition of assured material gain, and earthly power completed but nothing beyond. (Waite).
The Thoth 4 of Disks represents 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 (Physical) , are all centered around material security. In such a structure,"nothing ventured, nothing gained" becomes a problem of stasis that will be removed by the Greater Spiritual Self (A Tower Moment) to keep things moving.  For now things look under control and sitting back and enjoying material security seems justified. Here we  also have gift, legacy and inheritance.

Astrologically the Four of Disks or Pentacles is attributed to the Sun in Capricorn which assures the light and warmth of success but nothing beyond the moment.
It 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 into prosperity---so being flexible with your wealth is recommended. 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 and the water  goes putrid. This easily becomes Avarice, blockages of thought and action which naturally follow from excessive devotion to materialistic rewards.  However, if the drawbridge of an open mind  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 caution ; a kind of  " good for you", that can only keep being good if you expand it to "good for others" as well. That is why the draw bridge is down and the gate open on this illustration of the 4-of Disks, we must allow flowing change in order to really stay Secure in our power.
 
Blog followers may know by now  that Chesed-Mercy, is the  architect  of the Supernal (upper triangle on the Tree of Life) whose intelligence externalizes the combined potencies of the upper Trinity. Chesed is the administrator of manifestation and the laws there of.
 
The Four of Disks (Pentacles in The Spiral Tarot and Ryder-Waite decks)  is the most complete expression of the grounded Chesed forces.  The Thoth card shows the influence of Chesed in the material world, or the World of Assiah as our material world is called in the Qabalah.
 
The Four of Disks -Power, is also called the Lord of Earthly Power. The Angels of the Decan are Keveqiah and Mendial The planet is the Sun and here it is in Capricorn.
The Thoth illustration of the 4 of Disks suggests a fortress; implying law and order maintained by undaunted vigilance. 
The Disks themselves, are square implying that revolving or motion, is opposite to this card; However, another form of Chesed is in the Key 13 card of the Major Arcana, and it is the Death of stability, so that revolution can continue, 1+3=4, so the number of Chesed lays hidden in Gematria.
The Engineer of manifestation, has the power to reorganize it through a process we call Death; which is really energy transformation. 

The Thoth Four square disks, each  contain one of the symbols for the four elements and the walls are strong and seemingly immobile.

Yet we have the Sun reborn in Capricorn so new powerful activity is present, and is best shown as the Dancing Skeleton of the Thoth Major Arcana-key 13. which hints at underlying power in the 4 of disks Tarot Card is the orange-yellow color of the 4 of Disks card.
Like the eye of a hurricane, The Four of Disks is the "Dead Center" of the Engineer of all manifestation  Here at the center, everything looks quite and stable , but violent activity is making it so and soon, that stability will "fly to the winds". Capricorn is the center "where the Sun turns Northward." So the turning is happening in what looks to be stable.
The Spiral Tarot 4 of Pentacles,   illustrates the mundane meaning of this card. Here a well groomed man sits in his own black and white prison cell. Implying that seeing everything in the dual concept of black and white or good and bad, pleasure or pain etc. leaves us rigid, unyielding and closed off from life. This unyielding process of thought is also shown by the clenched fist.  What is subtle in implication here is that, if security is the major focus of your life, all things unknown or not experienced by the individual are seen as a threat. The mind closes down in defensive mode, and nothing new is learned or experienced.

The 4 of Disks or Pentacles suggests, that when we erect fortress walls, we have also erected our own prison.

When the Four of Disks is thrown during a reading:.
  • the querent is owning their own personal energy, physical potency and vitality. The very act of which proceeds change.
  • There may be a  defensive  feeling of holding on tightly to what one has, emotionally or physically.
  • The enfoldment of Power, Here the Ability to Do Work (Power) is unfettered and the engineer is active.
  • the querent is taking solid steps towards creating material security in the physical world.
  • Here, "nothing ventured nothing gain" is the axiom of the Four. Holding to tightly to what you have, and not taking risks of change can be detrimental.
  • Blockage of creative thought due to avarice, or excessive devotion to material things.
  • Setting up boundaries.
