Four of Swords|
The Four of Swords is a card of rest and recuperation.
Focus on this card when you need a break from overwork
A student naps on a concrete bench, with a book
laid open on his chest. Clearly, his studies are exhausting, and he’s
feeling overwhelmed by all the new information he’s trying to process.
Three swords seem to hang from the branches of a
tree overhead. A fourth sword is carved into the base of the bench. The
card can symbolize a temporary reprieve from duty and obligation, but
the position of the swords indicates that those responsibilities don’t
end. They simply are suspended for a time.
The young man is dressed in yellow, the elemental
color of air. It indicates that he’s thoughtful and quick, and that he’s
practicing air magic.
He’s pictured in a spring landscape, because the
suit of swords corresponds to the season of spring.
