The Four of Earth shows a very well dressed woman admiring her image in a gold framed mirror. The dressing room is filled with clothes and shoes. She is wearing diamonds and a full length fur coat over her green dress. The floor is purple. We often forget we are not merely the image we see in the mirror. We spend countless hours perfecting this persona and displaying it to the world. There is much more to us than what is reflected by our perceived image of ourselves. Because we are part of the material world, we can easily become deceived by outward appearances. Striving for perfection and material goods can consume our lives. It is what is inside of us, our spiritual nature that truly sustains us.
