|Dr.Nikki's Tarot -
|Four is ruled by the Emperor of the Major
Arcana. He lends his stability to the Four.
(Think about it this way...four legs sure give good
strength and foundation to a table, don’t they?)
The Four is also the number of will and
determination. The Four grants practicality and
the application of the self to the matter. This
creates a nearly unbeatable combination.
Symbolically, the Four stands for equality and
evenness. It has a direct correlation to the
Christian Cross. Fours talk about the practicality
and focus. If there is an abundance of Fours in
your spread it may indicate you either need to
apply your will in better application, or the contra-
indicator could be that you aren’t using your gifts
and focus to create the life you want for yourself!
The Kabalistic Link to the 4 – Chesed, Mercy,
and Majesty. We can call Chokmah the “all-
|better” in the abstract and Chesed the same power in
a more concrete form as the loving father, preserver
and protector. All the creative work in the world is
done by people whose minds work in terms of Chesed
the King, seated at his throne and holding both
scepter and orb. He is the benevolent ruler who also
guides his people. This idea is symbolized in Tarot
Key 4, the Emperor. He has become master of the
world of abstract ideas and can select images to fit his
purpose and bring them down into the concrete plane
