The Four of Swords

it's time to withdraw and rest

“Every person needs to take one day away. A day in which one consciously separates the past from the future. Jobs, family, employers, and friends can exist one day without any one of us, and if our egos permit us to confess, they could exist eternally in our absence. Each person deserves a day away in which no problems are confronted, no solutions searched for. Each of us needs to withdraw from the cares which will not withdraw from us.”
By Maya Angelou

“Rest is not idleness, and to lie sometimes on the grass under trees on a summer's day, listening to the murmur of the water, or watching the clouds float across the sky, is by no means a waste of time.”

John Lubbock

Life can throw some real challenges our way, just when we think things are settling down, something new arrives. But hold in there, for today’s card is the wonderful Four of Swords. A card that offers, a simple, but powerful way forward. 

Significantly, the Four of Swords proceeds the three, not the easiest card to experience, but hay, we’re moving away from the challenge of the three and about to embrace the stability of the four. 

You may feel tired, exhausted or overwhelmed by life’s difficulties and challenges, but hold in there friend, the energy is changing as you’re about to experience the contemplative energy of the Four of Swords. 

It’s time to step back, bunker down and find your safe place. Elementally Swords represent Air, the modality of the mind, reason, logic etc. You’re encouraged to take a break, to give your mind the space to process your problems and challenges without pressure or the need to be brave. You can’t keep pushing yourself without taking the timeout. You’ve heard the quote, ‘burning the candle at both ends’ this is you. You’re being called to find your safe spot, consider detaching from the distractions of social media, the news, texts from friends and go within. The time needed to press the pause button, to allow your thoughts to wind down, as to align with the energy that is now reaching out to heal and support you.    

Astrologically the Four of Swords represents Jupiter in Libra, so there is a need to expand the qualities of this beautiful sign, find balance, restore your faith, engage your diplomacy, generosity, rebuild your trust and forgiveness once more. Use this time wisely, purge away any hurt and sorrow. You are much stronger than you think, clear your mind, and start to plan a more positive and empowering way forward. Take a break, recharge your batteries and get out there and show them how it’s done!
