"A hand holding a branch of a rose tree, but without flowers or buds, save that in the center is one fully blown white rose. Four pentacles thus, with Sun and Capricorn above and below:
"Assured material gain, success, rank, dominion, earthly power completed, but leading to nothing beyond. Prejudiced, covetous, suspicious, careful and orderly, but discontented. Little enterprise or originality. Altered by dignity as usual.
"Chesed of Heh Final. (Gain of money or influence. A present.) Therein rule Keveqiah and Mendial."
The Four of Pentacles is Chesed in the scale of Assiah. It is Jovian Mercy in the Active World of Matter. The energies of Chesed are now fully grounded in establishment of the material universe as we know it. Chesed-Jupiter as the authority figure gives order and physical laws which run the mechanism of the cosmos. The energy has taken on three-dimensional form. It is here and now. Sun in Capricorn is a positive combination, for it is the sign in which the Sun is reborn. Capricorn is a builder and a worker, thus its effect in the physical world is that of positive material gain and completion of Earthly Power, but little more. No spiritual power is to be gained from it.
The Four of Pentacles displays the flashing colors which identify it as belonging to the element of Earth. A feminine angelic hand holds the rose branch with four pentacles. The single rose in the center alludes to the unified and balanced material powers of the card. The background color is deep blue flecked yellow, the color of Chesed in the World of Assiah. This color reflects the creative waters of Chesed and the influence of the Reconciler.
