Four of Pentacles

Prompt: Doc Benton

Card description:

A man holds tight to his four pentacles in this card. And in this case, the refusal to budge may be damaging. This is the miser card. Remember how the Querent got more work, money, luck, health in the last card, the Three of Pentacles? Well, he’s holding on tight to what he’s got, not sharing it with anyone, not investing it in the future, just holding onto it, trying to keep it still and unchanging. When this card appears it tells the Querent that they’re in a position of status, health, money, even comfort. Solid, and unchanging.

Artist’s notes:

While the Doctor holds symbols of life, I’ve used a lot of decay-like colors and rust textures to show that these symbols do not truly belong to him. He is grasping at life long after his time to let go.
