Tarot Card for the Day ~ October 10

Four of Swords

Isolt of the White Hands

Okay Dears.  Really.  I know the weather and season change are taking their toll, but c’mon.  This card only just showed up — on Wednesday.  So ferGawdsaik, it’s Saturday already.  Pay a little attention to the reader here this time.  Please? 

As one of my all-time favorite buttons — that I used to wear inside my  business suit — said:

Don’t make me have to come up there!  ~ Satan  

The Four of Swords, then,  is a card of respite and recovery.  It speaks of moving from a stressful environment to a place of safety, calm and comfort.

Some readers find that this card speaks of solitude or hermit’s repose.  Others see it as predicting renewal.

Anna-Marie Ferguson, creator of the Legend deck, finds such things as healing, gentle soul searching, convalescing and regaining strength and direction in this card.  [And I’ve been finding a lot of clients the past couple weeks are expressing a feeling of lack of direction.  So Looky Here you guys!]

 To me, the Four of Swords says:

“Now!  Today!  Make a mini-retreat!  Give yourself time and space to rest, recharge, recuperate.  As Anna-Marie Ferguson also says, this card recommends you leave a stressful, chaotic situation in order to clear the mind and reevaluate plans ~  so you can refine your sense of where you actually want to go!

Please be sure to carve out at least an hour, if not most of the day, to just be at peace, take it easy, do what’s comfortable and healing as you let the river (and pretty much everything else) flow by.  [Me?  Naps.  And avoiding rakes and lawnmowers — in a good cause!]

Bright blessings, peace, calm and healing!


Today’s Weather: Parsed adverbial prepositions, with other mythical beasties thrown in for a lark.

On This Date:  1957 – U.S. President Dwight D. Eisenhower apologizes to the finance minister of Ghana, Komla Agbeli Gbdemah, after he was refused service in a Dover, Delaware restaurant.

And on 10/9/09, President Barack Obama won the Nobel Peace Prize.  Occasionally, I find hope.
