Daily Tarot: Four of Pentacles

“The opposite of security is insecurity, and the only way to overcome insecurity is to take risks.”  Theodore Forstmann

Where in your life are you seeking guarantees? Security is especially important whether financially or emotionally. You may be so focused on protecting your assets or your heart that you find it difficult to relax or let go. As a result, you may be overly cautious in an attempt to block change. Your comfort with the status quo may trigger the instinct to be possessive or territorial with assets or relationships. The strong emphasis on the material can bring you in contact with wealthy people, investors, financial institutions, or conservatives and behaviors may run the gamut from being greedy, materialistic and excessively concerned with money to miserly tightwads counting every penny. The influence is likely to bring up fears that create self-inflicted burden through either putting in an all-out effort to achieve an objective or by trying to avoid discomfort altogether, especially if you’re facing a setback or haven’t received adequate payment for your services.

This is a good day to keep your feet on the ground and your head out of the clouds. Seeing situations in practical terms and assessing the appropriate level of investment for maximum return can help you to advance. A cautious willingness to take risks can allow you to successfully establish a business enterprise or take advantage of an opportunity that leads to gains in employment.

However, too much self-concern, self-interest, self-preservation and just plain selfishness can render objectivity an impossible proposition. Unwarranted fear of failure may skew your perspective and keep you from seeing things clearly. Mismanagement of resources, problems with the budget, or a lack of fulfillment can also be contributing factors that make you question the viability of a goal. You will need to determine if you have reached the point of diminishing return.
