If you've been following, The Fourth Sephiroth,Chesed/Mercy is the Universal Architect thus the Fours suggest perfection, realization, completion and fixing a matter to a rock solid stability.
In the Four of Swords, this stability is a form of Truce, where equal tension, makes a stability of mental powers.
The Four of Swords represents Chesed in Yetzirah, influencing the Astral world.
As you may know, mental creation happens in the Astral World before the manifestation is solidified in the Material World.
Now you may not be able to clearly see that you are not a body....You really are a Yod (hand of God) in the Collective Unconscious, so your Real body, is the Tree of Life....the human body is the incarnation, for sensual purposes, of your "dreams" and resides with in the Invisible you. That Invisible you is as Jupiter, and in this card, Jupiter is in Libra, Thus the normal destructive Swords, are put to rest in the munificent, benevolent and loving nature of Jupiter.
The Rose of Sophia (Wisdom) is restored and Consciousness is settled, thus rest from strife is implied by the Four of Swords. Jupiter in Libra radiates compassion and sensitivity showing the Mercy that is Chesed.
Here Jupiter claims authority in the intellectual world. Arguing for convention, Jupiter restores mental balance after the chaos of arbitrary thought.
In the Qabalistic Thoth card, the hilts of the Swords, are formed into the corners of the St. Andrew's Cross, suggesting the rigidity and fixation implied in the 4. The Rose of 49 petals, in which the Swords are sheathed, suggesting social harmony.
Thus there is a suggestion of compromise. As does Crowley, I find this compromise to be a less than positive factor. For it is an act of an indolent mind, that would rather be pusillanimous and compromise for social peace rather than work out the thought through the promised struggle. However, it must be to keep the peace but peace at any cost, is not always preferable.
When the four of Swords -Truce, is thrown during a reading:
The negatives of this card are often a bought of illness, in order to recuperate The intellect is relinquishing control back to the body. so that a time out of from problems and solutions are achieved as the body has only one focus of getting better.
