FOUR OF SWORDS; Truce
Rest from strife, is the general meaning of this card, issues, relationships or something in your life has come to full resolution on all four levels of awareness--mental, emotional, spiritual, and physical.
Astrologically this is Jupiter in Libra which is a compassionate and sensitive position.
This card is also representative of a healthy seclusion, where one is voluntarily taking time- off from adversarial situations as they rest and recuperate. The intellect is relinquishing control and allowing peace from the stress generated by juggling the contrary. Sometimes this card also signifies convalescence and recuperation from a illness specifically generated by the psycho-dynamic union of body and subconscious mind to establish a involuntary rest period.
To a Qabalist, this card is Chesed in Yetzirah, the influence of Mercy in the Astral word.[see yesterdays blog about the Four Worlds of the Qaballah] .
Today is Christmas for many Christians around the world---and is a good day for rest and recuperation from the stress of the Holidays. Have a very Merry Christmas, and remember that Tiphareth , the central Sephira on the Tree of Life, is the "Christ-Sun" in all of us, and it is from there that our Beauty radiates outward into the physical realm. We are Beautiful Children of Divine Parents and today is a good day to express your individual expression of Beautiful Self. I AM the Love of You! May you live long and prosper.
