Four of Pentacles as Intentions Tarot Card Meaning Sibyl Tarot

The Four of Pentacles is the card of insecurity, jealousy, possessiveness, stinginess, boundaries, and guardedness. This card depicts a man clutching many pentacles close to his body. His arms and feet are locked defensively in a closed stance. He acts as if he believes that someone is going to rob him at any second. He is guarded and does not trust others. 

The Four of Pentacles reminds us that boundaries are important to healthy relationships, but sometimes insecurity can take our boundaries too far. When we have our guard up to the point of paranoia and jealousy, we deprive ourselves of the ability to give and receive love and emotional support. The Four of Pentacles is a reminder that love should be freely given and that possessiveness can destroy relationships.

Upright Four of Pentacles as Intentions

If you are asking about someone’s intentions towards you, and you draw the Four of Pentacles, that means this person intends to keep you for the wrong reasons. They don’t want to lose you. As a result, they are highly possessive and insecure. Their behavior could be poisonous to you. You need to ask yourself whether or not this is the kind of person with whom you wish to develop a deep and lasting bond.

The Four of Pentacles as intentions means that they cannot fully trust others because of unhealed emotional wounds from the past. Fear is a constant companion for them. They grow overly dependent on you as a defense mechanism and want your undivided attention. They are bringing unhealthy baggage into your relationship from their past. You need to address and resolve this to prevent the issue from escalating further.

For singles and those embarking on new relationships, the Four of Pentacles is a sign of them intending to keep you to themselves. They have not fully healed from past trauma. They are scared of being hurt again. As a result, this person tends to be jealous and clingy. Although their reason is to not lose you, the possessiveness might hurt you in the future. They need to do a deep introspection before the relationship can progress.

For existing relationships, the Four of Pentacles represents an intention to dwell in the past. They are extremely clingy and jealous. One reason would be a case of cheating — have you always been faithful to your partner? If this is not the case, then they are projecting their past onto your relationship. They must let go of this baggage for a healthy relationship.

If you are asking about an ex’s intentions, the Four of Pentacles shows that they intend to keep things as they are. They have feelings of regret. But they don’t intend to display it to the world. They would instead continue showing a guarded front instead of admitting the breakup significantly affected them. Deep inside, they are still insecure and needy. If you want to reconnect with this person, ensure they have already overcome their issues; otherwise, you will go back to square one.

In the context of whether or not a relationship is headed for commitment, engagement, or marriage, the Four of Pentacles means that this person’s intentions are burdened with the past. They have a lot of inner work before they can be ready for a larger commitment. They have had issues in the past that must be resolved. Your partner must let go of this insecurity before your relationship can progress.
