Divinatory meanings of the 4 of Disks


Magical Image of the Four of Disks

Chaste Wise Woman and Banker

In the third face of Capricorn ascends a woman chaste in body, and wise in her work, and a banker gathering his money together on the table; the signification of this is to govern in prudence, in covetousness of money, and in avarice.

Picatrix gives a good example of holding onto one’s possessions and power above all else. A banker represents the increasing of one’s power and resources.

Crowley uses the symbol of a castle for this card. The castle is difficult to access.
