The Tower and Four of Swords cards together – what do they mean?
The Tower and the Four of Swords serve to warn that your life contains too much stress and not enough rest.
Life: Imbalance, stress, overdoing things
Love: Not enough focus on your relationship, ignoring warning signs, potential red flags
Career: Anxiety leading to stress, huge workload, booking time off
Health: Uneasy, feeling fraught, ignoring your mind and body telling you it needs to rest
You should avoid waiting until you reach burn out afore you give yourself the break you deserve. Plan your schedule well, and don’t forget to breathe.
The Tower Interpretation
The Tower is a chaotic structure of change.
There are moments in your life where you fear upheaval. What if this shift impacts you in ways you are ill prepared for? You panic, having no option but to ride the wave of unfamiliarity with your breath held and your eyes closed. Your white knuckle ride is alive and kicking.
If you pause, just for a moment and open one eye, you might notice something in your surroundings that brings you peace or at the very least reassurance that soon all will be well. Foundational shifts temporarily cause confusion and aren’t suited to those who prefer the quieter, more balanced aspects of life.
Through loss and trauma, you discover a dimension of yourself that never existed afore. You wipe the steam from the mirror, look at your weary eyes and you see a small spark of strength. In endings, you turn the page and begin to write the next chapter. You are your own resurrection.
‘You fall fast from me and into the unknown, but it is there you find your true self’ – The Tower
Four Of Swords interpretation
The Four Of Swords basks in stillness.
There are events from times recent that you are urging yourself to rest from, and my goodness, do you need it. Pain is behind you now but as the worst is just over, you are not quite ready for ‘better times’ yet. Instead, your need derives from the notion to pause, relax and protect your mind, body and soul afore you move on.
You are at peace with yourself, forgiving previous misfortunes and repelling all temptations to run ahead. You are your own sanctuary, recharging from potential trauma or loss. This may mean you taking a step back from loving others, as your focus shifts to yourself. Don’t feel guilty for any alone time you need, because life is about balance and our mental and physical health is imperative.
Perhaps at work you have gone above and beyond your job title in order to make others happy. This has left you feeling ragged and anxious. To shake this away and rejuvenate, you should look into booking some time off, perhaps go on a short break. Clear the metaphoric fog and your new dawn will present itself.
