Deck Creator’s Keywords: stillness, mental power, reprieve, contemplation.
Despite the menacing swords hanging from above, the lamb sits there with a calm and fearless demeanor. Four of Swords Wild Unknown Tarot says that this is the time to look deep within and find the mental strength to deal with pressure. Rest is very important. Find meditation or find literature that focuses on the stillness of mind. Take advantage of this time to recover and retreat inside before the other swords fall.
When we look at the Tarot as an overall system, Four of Swords Wild Unknown Tarot is an appropriate way to follow up on the previous card. While the Three of Swords shows intense struggles, the Four of Swords shows the process of integrating everything from one broader place. The lamb lays at the bottom of the card with a serene expression on her face. She looks at us with a peaceful expression. In the center of her forehead (or her third eye) is a bright orange-yellow sphere. These are the colors of focus and strength. Her thoughts are central and powerful.
Four swords are placed above the lamb. They all come in different lengths and designs, but their spacing is even. This gives the card a balanced feel. The sky above is clear blue, evoking space for spiritual deposition. Instead of spiritual energy being confined in the work of Two of Swords and Three of Swords, Four of Swords Wild Unknown Tarot has a sense of spaciousness.
The number four is often associated with stability (as in The Emperor, the card numbered IV in the Major Arcana). When you combine that quality with the Swords suit, you will see the mental stability we see in Four of Swords. The card reminds you that it is necessary to retreat from the action and give space for reflection.
II. The message of Four of Sword Wild Unknown Tarot in a reading
Traditional depictions of Four of Swords Rider Waite show a lying figure, usually in a church setting. This card is about tapping into your mental energy in more effective ways. Instead of letting your mental energy run uncontrollably, it helps to become aware of your thoughts.
Four of Swords Wild Unknown Tarot can also talk about the importance of planning. Instead of rushing into action, it may be necessary to deeply consider what you want to do next. Let yourself think about all your options and explore different perspectives. Do what it takes to feel prepared and ready before making your next move.
In a reading, Four of Swords Wild Unknown Tarot can suggest a conscious choice to stabilize your thoughts. It can help if you do whatever makes you feel most focused and alert, such as journaling or meditating. Let’s plan, prepare, and stabilize yourself silently. Treat your mental energy as a precious resource and do what you need to do to bring it back to full capacity.
Four of Swords Wild Unknown Tarot is also a card of silence. This is the stage when you will slow down and reflect on what you have done. Some plans in your life, whether you like it or not, are stopped. On a certain level, the card predicts that what you are implementing will not come true or bring any results.
III. Meaning of Four of Sword Wild Unknown Tarot in the upright position
Four of Swords Wild Unknown Tarot requires you to rest before taking on the next challenge. You have reached your first major milestone and must recharge before the next stage begins to leave you refreshed and ready to begin. Even if you are productive and active, take time out of your busy schedule to restore energy and heal your body and mind. Constant stress and tension will disrupt even the toughest and most resilient but brief periods of rest help you regain energy, focus, and attention to be ready for the next challenge.
If you have been going through difficult times recently, such as trauma from a breakup or departure, relationship, family problems, financial and health concerns, stress, or spat, Four of Swords Wild Unknown Tarot comes as a sign for you to take a step back and regain perspective. Take a day off from work, travel to a new destination, or spend time with your loved ones – whatever you need for a break. Now is not the time to make a decision.
In fact, Four of Swords Wild Unknown Tarot presents a new challenge: to stay silent and inactive. Now is the time to build your mental strength by freeing your mind from any mental ‘clutter’ or stress. Meditate and spend time in a place that creates peace, quiet, and stillness for you. Continue in retreat or start a meditation course. You need to replenish your strength and spend time connecting with your Higher Self.
Four of Swords Wild Unknown Tarot in the upright position shows the need for seclusion. You need solitude to negotiate your situation and time apart from others to gather your thoughts and feelings. Following the painful loss of the Three of Swords, this Four suggests that you need to spend time alone to re-evaluate your life. Loneliness, though often unbearable, is necessary for you to recharge your batteries and regain your sanity. This solitary experience always brings greater inner strength and confidence. Withdraw from pain, conflict, and distractions, and be free from stress and anxiety. Be grounded and self-recharged. Introspect for a real change and meditate daily.
In a practical sense, Four of Swords Wild Unknown Tarot is an indicator that you need to take some time to review your progress so far. This is a great time to reevaluate your priorities. It is almost like conducting your own ‘post-implementation review’ after a major milestone or a major challenge. Make time and space to evaluate what works well at the moment, what did not in the past, and what you need to change in the future. Pausing thinking after each big challenge will help you achieve success in the future.
The meaning of Four of Swords Wild Unknown Tarot in the upright position informs that you will undergo a period of rest and recovery. At this stage, you will stop and take care of yourself and those around you. On the other hand, the card predicts that you may experience an illness or separation that makes you lose your inner strength, so this period is only for rest and restoration to face the next challenges. Also, you tend to see things in a negative light.
Four of Swords Wild Unknown Tarot in the upright position informs this is the recovery phase. To be strong and courageous to move on, you need to relax first. Time to rest and take care of yourself will help you organize everything. You have faced crises and after the crisis, you are in a state of burnout. You can only take on new challenges after taking a break. The card indicates a time of rest and recovery from trials. Then you can resume the challenge again.
Meanwhile, Four of Swords Wild Unknown Tarot presents a new challenge – keep quiet and stay there. This is the time to build mental soundness. Contemplate and spend a lot of time enjoying the peaceful atmosphere. You need to replenish your strength and spend a lot of time thinking about spirituality. The Four of Swords is a reminder that after every crisis and before every new challenge, there is always a time of respite and contemplation. Tension after stress will cause even the most stubborn man to fall. A short break allows you to revitalize, focus, and be ready for your journey ahead. Vacations should be utilized wisely to heal your body and restore your psyche.
Four of Swords Wild Unknown Tarot is also a sign that you can stop worrying, unwind your defense system, and take a break from the chaos around you. At this point, a truce is in place and you can chill without fear of being attacked. Note, however, that a truce does not mean forever peace. The Four of Swords shows that challenges will return to your life as soon as you are ready to face them, so make the most of this quiet time to recover and remember that difficulties are still there. This card shows that it is time to take a break at some challenging times, which are related to separation, family issues, financial and health concerns, stress, and conflict. This is also not the time to make decisions, especially when you are most vulnerable.
In terms of love, if you are single, this is not the right time to start a relationship, so you should be patient and keep waiting for the right time. You are not sure what you want, instead of looking for the other half, take the time to understand yourself. If you are in a relationship, Four of Swords Wild Unknown Tarot in the upright position tells you that discord in love is inevitable, so avoid hurting your partner with disparaging words when arguing. The two of you should share responsibilities with each other. In order to have a lasting relationship, both of you must place yourself in the other’s shoes and work it out together.
In terms of work, at this point, it is not advisable to perform quickly because Four of Swords Wild Unknown Tarot in the upright position says that you can easily make mistakes. If you are fostering a plan, keep it to yourself and accomplish it quietly, limiting bragging to others. Work-related matters need to be handled with caution, thinking about long-term development steps in mind. If you are preparing for a project or a contract, be considered with your current financial resources
In terms of money, if you are having financial trouble, this phase will go away very quickly. You should consider your spending habits. Four of Swords Wild Unknown Tarot in the upright position suggests you should not lend to others at this time because you will have trouble getting your money back. You should limit spending money on unnecessary items and adjust your savings plan appropriately.
In terms of health, Four of Swords Wild Unknown Tarot in the upright position announces that this is a period of rest. The pressures in life make you feel exhausted, so let your spirit be restored by relaxing and enjoying the results you have. On the other hand, health problems may happen unexpectedly to your family members, so spend more time taking care of them.
IV. Meaning of Four of Swords Wild Unknown Tarot in the reversed position
The reversed Four of Swords Wild Unknown Tarot says that you are feeling insecure. You realize that you should withdraw and pause for a while, but that is not what you want. The card advises not to follow the old path because it will make you exhausted from frequent stress. You can completely continue to fight but it will not bring any effect. The card also suggests that you are spending too much time with others and neglecting yourself.
Four of Swords Wild Unknown Tarot in the reversed position sends a strong message that you need to take time to rest and recharge. You may be working long hours, giving your time and energy to others in need, or engaged in a demanding and stressful job. You are about to run out of dynamism and your energy reserves are running low or depleted. If you don’t stop and get the necessary rest now, you could collapse and burn out, leaving yourself completely unproductive and unable to help anyone.
Four of Swords Wild Unknown Tarot in reverse shows that you are feeling restless and want to do everything at once. Even when your body is constantly giving signals that it really needs rest and care, your mind keeps pushing you forward to complete a long list of tasks. It is important to stop and rest before you collapse. At this point, you are trying to avoid contemplating or meditating on a problem because you are so worried about its consequences. You need to return to the energy of the Three of Swords and confront the pain that exists in your heart. You need to experience pain because the more you avoid it, the more it prevents you from moving forward. Once you get used to it, the pain is not as bothersome as it used to be.
The reversed Four of Swords Wild Unknown Tarot also represents stagnation and lack of action, which leads to frustration. For example, a long-term marriage that is no longer moving forward and is difficult to save leaves the people involved mentally and emotionally empty and exhausted. You need to get out of this situation and return to it when your energy is flowing better. Similarly, the reversed Four of Swords shows that you are feeling frustrated with the lack of progress and change in your life. Everything stays the same or does not change the way you want it to. Part of this lack of change may be due to your passive approach. You chose to sit there whining and getting frustrated instead of taking action to change the situation.
Four of Swords Wild Unknown Tarot in the reversed position is calling you to retreat from the outside world and withdraw inward. Now is the time for a social media detox, a weekend getaway, or a step back so you can focus your energy and find your peace again. Use daily meditation to calm your mind. The reversed Four of Swords can indicate that you are restless and want to do everything at once. Even when your body tells you you need to rest and relax, your mind can still push you forward, trying to do a long list of tasks and making you sick or stressed as a result.
Therefore, it is important that you force yourself to slow down to make sure you don’t fall to the ground. Some ‘busy time’ is okay but be careful not to push it too far that you will end up damaging your health and well-being. If you need a break, just take a break. Even just a weekend ‘nanna nap’ or a twenty-minute daily meditation can help rebalance your energy stores and get you ready to be more productive.
