The Four of Swords

four-of-swords-swords-minor-arcana-rider-waite-tarotThis morning I pulled the four of swords from the tarot card deck.   What a perfectly fitting card for the day! The four of swords indicates a person who retreats to take a much-needed rest which can eventually lead to healing if needed.  However, the four of swords for me indicated that I needed to slow down for the day, relax and meditate. In essence give my self a mental break!  That’s exactly what I did.  I enjoyed the rainy day in my pajamas and watched movies on cable all day.  I believe the last time I did that might have been three years ago!

This card is a reminder that we need to take a moment out of our busy schedules and replenish ourselves mentally.  The four of swords can also symbolize retreating and allowing yourself to recover from whatever ails you.   What this card mean for you!
