Tarot Poem: The Four of Swords

Upright:

A time to rest. Quiet.
To conserve your energies.
Return to basics.

Reversed:

Illness. Enforced rest.
To surrender to events.
Find your inner peace.

Beautiful poem for a beautiful card!

It is such a solemn card… almost scary. I interpret it as “take some time to rest or you’ll burn out!”

Lovely Poem @Amethyst as always!

The two facets of this card remind me of the power of choice- you can either stop for a breather or life will come knocking :laughing: Although the last line of the Reversed poem makes it seem like getting this card reversed isn’t all bad- sometimes people need to talk time to find their inner peace :dove:

Gorgeous as always- these are such a delight, @Amethyst! Thanks for sharing your talents and wisdom :pray::smiling_face_with_three_hearts:

Glad you liked the poem @Francisco, and yeppers, that’s how I interpret it too!

Thank you, @Rowan! I’m glad you liked it!

Aww, thank you, my dear! I’ve really enjoyed writing these. I’ll be sad sort of when I’m done.

Same here! Hmmm…you’ve done the Major Arcana, Cups, and Pentacles, but there’s still half of the Swords and all of the Wands. I think there are still plenty of cards waiting for the magick of your talents, Amethyst! :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:

After that… well, as long as your creativity is flowing, I’m sure there will be always be callings for your poetry skills :wink: Do you have any interest in runes, perhaps? :grin:

Thank you for this tarot entry. I’m going to add it to my book. I am needing a new one soon! :pensive: I already have two. I just want one huge book that will cease to run out of pages and room!

I’ve tried to connect with runes, even made myself a set. But I just don’t get the same zing I get with tarot cards. Not sure why. But it’s an idea! Thank you!

You’re welcome, my dear. As for that book, I’m afraid you’re going into Harry Potter territory there, a neverending book. It would be nice though wouldn’t it?

Absolutely!!! I’d love one of those! My daughter went to a Harry Potter themed party thing at the library a few days ago and I did think of Harry Potter when writing that about the book. There’s been a lot of Harry Potter coming up for me lately. I wonder what that means??? 🤷

You’re vibing with me I guess. I just found a new, interesting-looking Harry Potter fanfiction. Maybe I’m infecting you with my excitement! LOL!

I understand- to each their own with divination methods! :grin: I think it’s natural that everyone has their favorites and things that just don’t click with them.

I guess we’ll all just have to savor and enjoy your beautiful tarot poems until we reach the end of the deck! :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:

You’re not alone- it does seem like Harry Potter is everywhere lately! I think there was just a game released, and then the big Harry Potter Legacy game is in the works and coming soon. I think they’re cranking out the advertisements to get people excited- seems like it’s working! :laughing: :+1:

Great minds think alike- there is indeed a collection of the poems! Many thanks to @Temujin_Calidius for sharing the link :blush:
