Four of Swords

Four of Swords

For the unhappy Swords, this card means it's time for retreat, rest and quiet contemplation.

The image is not of death, but of a person resting, withdrawing. People sometimes deal with problems in this way, by hiding from the world.

In a reading, this shows that you need to get some rest. Withdrawal can lead to healing, especially after a time of deep hurt. It gives you time to recover.

It can also signify that you are hiding from the world rather working with others or showing your true self.

Reversed, the card shows a return to the world, the period of withdrawal is ending. It can also signify caution. At other times it means others breaking through, like the prince and Sleeping Beauty.
