The Card: A man is sitting with 4 pentacles. His feet are placed on 2 of them, one is one the head, and the last he is holding with his arms. He is sitting with his back towards the city, depicted under a grey sky.
Interpretation: Clearly this man is closed in his body language. Hunched holding on to the gifts he has been given, and placing his feet on them. Also the fact that his back is turned towards the city, tells the tale of someone socially disconnected with life. Solitude doesn't necessarily mean disassociation with society. But our man here is retreated into a shell, holding back, not sharing his possessions and energy, and not being in a state of equilibrium.
Prediction: For whatever reason we choose to hold on to our possessions or energy it will not work. We are safe but it will bring only stagnation. Give from your gifts, share, and the world will give back. You will be richer that you thought.
Keywords: Isolation, fear of connecting, invitation to share, society as a development cauldron.
