Inspiring Enchantment & Illumination with Tarot & Intuitive Guidance

Tarot Card of the Week, Oct. 21-27, 2019: Encoring the Four of Swords

He does not seem to me to be a free man who does not sometimes do nothing.
Marcus Tullius Cicero (106-43 BCE)

This is quite an unusual event. Today’s card very clearly called out to me, and when I turned it over, I had to laugh.

Welcome back this week to the Four of Swords.

This week, I am going to take its guidance more to heart. Because, honestly? Last week I really didn’t.

As the balsamic Moon fades, the end of the magical year approaches, and Mercury prepares to station retrograde, the repeated message from the Tarot is — stop.

Take your time.

Take a strategic retreat.

Rest your busy brain.

And prepare yourself, for you and I are already well into the rigors of a eon-changing, deep initiation.

To review the Four of Swords’ traditional meaning and message, here is the link to last week’s far more in-depth post.

And then, I suggest you take this as a mandate that you give yourself plenty of contemplative downtime. I know I am.

Starting here and now.

    I so love this! Two weeks in a row and a perfect card for the dark moon/new moon week.

    Weirdly, I had a feeling this card would appear again. We all need this rest so badly
