Tarot Card Comparisons:The Thoth Tarot- 4 of Swords-Truce & The Witches Tarot- Four of Swords

The Tarot of EliThe Thoth Tarot-4 of Swords-Truce and the Witches Tarot- Four of Swords:

The Thoth Tarot 4 of Swords is named- TRUCE depicting a balance achieved.
The Witches Tarot-Four of Swords  illustrates a Woman holding a sword,  standing next to 3  swords leaning against a castle wall. Swords are ruled by the Element of Air, which is shown in the yellow color of her dress, which is trimmed in royal purple. The feather motif on her dress promotes the element of air, of which this card is associated.

She is standing in an attitude of weariness, with the strain of over exertion on her face, and the sword resting point down on the ground.
In her right hand, is a bunch of pussy-willow branches, which in the language of flowers, indicates recovery from illness. It seems she is being reminded to rest and recuperate. The ivy growing on the castle walls, is associated with healing. The amethyst gems on her headpiece, necklace and girdle, promotes restful sleep, healing and pleasant dreams. 
She is dressing well, and shows a stalwart face, but the sings of stress are showing. It's time to rest and "chill out".

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 recover from stress.

THOTH TAROT- 4 OF SWORDS-TRUCE.

If you've been following my blogs your know that  Chesed, the 4th Sephiroth, is the Universal Architect. Thus the 4's suggest perfection, realization, completion  and fixing a matter to a rock solid stability.
In the 4 of Swords, this stability is a form of Truce, where equal tension, makes a stability of mental powers. However, a Truce is but a armistice and not a treaty, suggesting "the warring parties" are tired of fighting, but no one has yet given up the battle. They've just delayed it's final outcome.

The 4 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 and/or Spirit) in the Collective Unconscious, so your Real body, is the Tree of Life, as Adam Khadmond. The human body is the incarnation, and/or measurement for sensual purposes, of your "dreams" and/or expectations, and resides and is supported by the Invisible and therefore immeasurable you.  That Invisible you is as Jupiter, a great benign power, that bestows life 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 but being swords, nothing is forgiven by the perpetrators of the battle.

On the Thoth 4 of Swords, The Rose is restored and Consciousness is settled, thus rest from strife is implied by the 4 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 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 issue through the promised struggle. However, it must be to keep the peace, but peace at any cost, is not always preferable.

When the 4 of Swords -Truce or the Four of Swords, 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 to focus on getting better.
