The Fours in the Tarot
A square is a stable strong shape with four sides. The number four represents the material world, stability, firm foundations, structure, order, regularity, routine and discipline. The square is a stable structure and so from this stability the four is a stationary energy or pause in activity representing a calming influence. The four is connected with the element earth – practicality, work, order routine, money and security. The stability of this energy is coloured by the suit it is in. In the suit of wands and swords it has a calming and stabilising effect but in the passive, receptive suit of cups and pentacles it tends to create too much stability resulting in stagnation and restrictions.
