The Meaning of
the "Four of Swords" Tarot Card

Truce
Peace has arrived but the costs have been high. A time to heal and take measure. A period of rest.

[ inverted meaning ]
There is no rest for the weary. Conflict prevents introspection and understanding. Fatigue.

Advanced tarot interpretation

(Applies to the upright position) The Symbolism of the Tarot Card:

A tomb of an honored noble knight. One sword adorns his tomb, and three point downwards towards his statue's head, signifying death in battle. The devotional attitude reflects that the honored man has found ultimate peace in death. The stained glass window recounts a scene of a child learning at his mothers knee in a pastoral family setting.

The Meaning of the Tarot Card:

Resolution to a long-standing situation. The end of the journey of the Knight of Swords. Repose, solitude, the need to retreat and reassess. The need to take stock of the items of the past in order to go forward with one's future. Vigilance and sacrifice in the face of adversity. As the figure in the card is only a statue, the death in this card is really only a metaphorical one.
