After all, how many people get excited about rules?

What makes Four interesting is how you can use these rules to help make your dreams a reality.

Upright Tarot Card Meaning:

If you've been through a period where every dollar had to be stretched 5 ways, things will be getting easier. 

The Four of Coins doesn't represent a period of extreme riches but it is about financial stability.

When you see the Four of Coins, you will have more money coming in than going out and with some planning, will even have some money left over.

It's the time to look into savings and how to use money wisely rather than just spending it on random stuff. 

Take care of your money and it will take care of you.
