It is past midnight. You walk outside in the quiet winter night, in the newly fallen show. You carry a green pouch containing four pentacles. You walk through the park into the woods. How are you feeling being outside solo? You sit on a large worn rock. You know it’s a brisk night outside, but do you feel the cold or the wind? Is there a scent in the air?

You open the pouch with the four pentacles inside. Your intention here is to give away something in your life, so something else can come in. Think about what that is for you. In your hand are the pentacles that represent the most precious things you have in your life. One of them has to go. You spread them out right in front of you. You give yourself ten minutes to make your decision. Do you need more time? How does it feel to let go of something or someone close to you? You know this is something you need to do.

When you are ready you will walk away with only three pentacles remaining – or perhaps you will still have all four. Accept this decision and begin to walk.

When you have walked far enough, open your eyes. How was your encounter with the Four of Pentacles? Whether you were able to let go of one of the pentacles or not, think on how your decision resonates in your own life. As always, record and reflect in your tarot journal.
