Tarot Card for the Day ~ March 12

Four of Swords

Isolt of the White Hands

Fortune Cookie: Carve out some time to just be at peace, take it easy, do what’s comfortable and healing; just let the river flow on by.


Which one of y’all isn’t getting enough rest, enough recuperation, enough time far from the madding crowd? 

[Headline: Tarot Guy Blown Out Window by Draft as Readers All Raise Hands.]   

Look into this card and its advice, 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. [Regular readers know I prefer under the bed.]

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 month or so 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 Friday!] 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 half 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 other leaf-moving fashion accoutrements — in a good cause!]

Bright blessings, peace, calm and healing!

Quote for the Day:  We experience moments absolutely free from worry. These brief respites are called panic. ~ Cullen Hightower

    Was one of those crazy days where I didn’t get to my computer until this evening. Yet, even reading the card message now (and watching the wonderful St. Patrick’s day YouTube video) helped me to relaaaax, unwind, smile, and tap my foot.

    So NOW I will take some time to “let the river flow on by”. [I’ll “hide” on TOP of the bed, thank you. It’s much more comfortable.]

    Blessings, Donna

    And fewer dust bunnies. Usually.
