Tarot Card for the Day ~ November 8

Four of Swords

Isolt of the White Hands

Goodness.  This is the fourth time this card has shown up since October 7.  Which one of y’all isn’t getting enough rest, enough recuperation, enough time far from the madding crowd?

Look into this, then, will ya?  But don’t just make it another item on an overly long to-do list.  Make DIFFERENT choices.

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! [Especially because it’s a Sunday!] 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!

    I couldn’t help but laugh at your headliner: Tarot Reader Blown Out of Window as Readers Raise Hands Simultaneously.

    Can you imagine asking ANY group of people if they are feeling stressed and getting a “no” response?

    So, thank you, Universe, for “arranging” for this card to be pulled on such a gorgeous, sunny day. I think my to-do list (after all — the windows really DO look like they need to be washed on a day like today) just shrunk considerably.

    Boy, can I relate to the quote by Cullen Hightower: We experience moments absolutely free from worry. These brief respites are called panic.

    Prayer: Help me to truly ENJOY the moments free from worry …and stress…and drama…

    Thanks, Donna,

    “Can you imagine asking ANY group of people if they are feeling stressed and getting a “no” response?”

    Well, I’ve got a pretty wild imagination.
