Full Meaning

The Four of Swords is sometimes referred to as a card of meditation because it is symbolic of a period of calm after a storm. Now could be a time for you to get away from it all and reflect upon everything that has happened; especially concentrate on things that may not have been so positive in your life. You may find that now is a good time to re-energize yourself after a period of turmoil. If you have been facing a long period of physical/emotional stress, disagreements, misunderstandings, verbal abuse and general disharmony then this card indicates that a period of rest and recuperation is needed, particularly if you have been feeling under the weather or unwell. A quiet stable scene is what is needed here, as this is a card for building up your physical and mental health.

Traditional Symbolism

The effigy of a knight in the attitude of prayer, at full length upon his tomb.
