Tarot Card Comparisons: Tarot of the Old Path and Thoth Deck Tarot. The Four of Swords

The Thoth Deck 4 of Swords is named TRUCE depicting a balance achieved. the Tarot of the Old Path Four of Swords  illustrates a Woman protected by four swords plunged into the ground forming a wall of protection around her

Swords are ruled by the Element of Air, which is shown in the yellow color of her dress. The four buttons on her dress show the colors of the four elements, blue for water, green for earth, and red for fire.

She is standing in an attitude of prayer, with her eyes closed and hands  extended  with palms outward .
The fluttering veil across her mouth indicates her unwillingness to communicate with others as she is seeking atonement with the elements of  nature in order to rejuvenate both mind and body.

The Primary meaning of this card seems to be that of retreating from the outside world in order to gain physical and emotional rejuvenation. Seeking of peaceful, protected surroundings in order to meditate.

THOTH DECK FOUR OF SWORDS-TRUCE.

If you've been following my blogs your know that , Chesed 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 fluid 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, a great benign  power,  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 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 this 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:
  • There is mental understanding of a matter.. or relationship coming to full resolution on four levels of mental awareness: The Rational, The Emotional of the Unconscious , The Spiritual, and the Subconscious of the Physical.
  • implications of problems that should not be ignored, listen to the inner self and answers will be restored.
  • a holding pattern after mastering a difficult mental situation.
  • retreat or withdrawal necessary to heal or hide, by creating a protected mental space. Here insight can be generated by seclusion.
  • a moment of logic and  discriminating intelligence of integrity and planning.


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.

Thank you for your interest and comments. May you live long and prosper!
