Four of Swords (Reversed) General meaning

The Four of Swords when reversed represents two related, yet opposite things.

On the one hand, it may indicate that despite the need for rest you have, you keep going , anxiously, without pause, causing exhaustion and stress.

Your body may be at the limit, but not your mind, which continues to force things as if it were dissociated from the body.

This rhythm can cause problems, since exhaustion and mental over-demand will lead you to make mistakes and distractions.

On the other hand, it is possible that you are without drive , exhausted, without taking actions of any kind, while your frustrations are increasing.

It could be your marriage that has lost its meaning, your job, or existential questions that have to do with your role in life. It is necessary to take distance, relax, rest, to be able to evaluate these situations calmly and objectively.

You feel every day that there are no changes , you do not progress in your life, many plans were stopped or frustrated, or were carried out in a way that was not what you wanted, but at the same time that this has frustrated you, some part of your responsibility It may be that your way of looking at life, your attitude, is a bit passive.

You do not act, you let things happen and when things are not in your own hands, the results can certainly be undesirable. The Four of Swords invites you to take action , to be proactive, because sitting around waiting for everything to resolve itself has not worked for you so far.

In another aspect, you may be avoiding any pause and moment of analyzing what is happening to you or what is happening in your life, since you are afraid of the conclusions you may reach or what the results of your actions could be.

Part of life is pain and dealing with it, and the only way to get over it is to face it. You need to face that which burns inside you so that you can continue your path and your life takes a positive turn, becoming fuller.

Four of Swords (Reversed) – In Love Tarot Reading

There is a certain disconnect in the couple, mainly on your part, but also from your partner. This is surely not due to feelings, it is not a lack of them or love, but responds to internal, personal, intimate issues, so neither one nor the other should take things very personally. Try to distance yourself to find out what is happening and to be able to solve things.

If you are looking for a partner, you must take risks beyond your comfort zone, your circles. Rarely does love come to your door by magic, you must go out and mix with people to create possibilities.

Four of Swords (Reversed) – In Job or Profession Tarot Reading

You may feel exhausted and stressed but you don’t allow yourself to stop for a minute. You feel frustrations: you do not progress, there are no changes, you feel that you do not earn what you deserve, or that you do something valuable or that you really like.

You must stop and reflect, try to look differently. On the other hand, things may not change because you are too passive, surrendered, waiting for everything to resolve itself.

If you are looking for a job, try looking in other places than those in which you move now, you have much more chances of getting if you try something else.

Four of Swords (Reversed) – In Money Tarot Reading

The Four of Swords asks you to put your anxiety aside at this time, as it is a bad counselor and clouds your rational judgment and can even confuse your own intuitions.

The rush is a bad advisor at this time, you must take a break to rethink things that have to do with your finances or your business. Rushing things will make you wrong. Moderate on expenses until you can clarify the situation.

Four of Swords (Reversed) – In Health Tarot Reading

The Four of Swords asks you to stop and rest especially to quiet your mind, although your body also needs it. However rest and pause does not mean total inaction.

Rest is precisely to act, to renew yourself and gain strength, to take action forwards. All this time will serve to eliminate certain ailments or disorders that you have accumulated.

Four of Swords (Reversed) – In Spirituality Tarot Reading

The Four of Swords recommends silence and meditation, either in the middle of nature or in your room. It is a good time, and also necessary, to reconnect with the source and with your vital energy, with your interior. Praying or doing readings can help you at this time, and after that you will come out with great strength and integrity.

In Conclusion:

In an inverted position, the FOUR SWORD card means untimely action. It’s time for a man to stop and think, and he rushes into battle. “The right action at the right time in the right place and with the right people … leads to the right results.” – The inverted FOUR OF SWORDS symbolizes neglect of this principle. Cancer and its associated planets – the Moon, Jupiter, Saturn, Mars – sound in the topic of the FOUR OF SWORDS.

Mars in Cancer is in a fall, so the action at the level of the FOUR DIES OF SWORDS, as it were, freezes, goes into the depths, turns inwards. The moon symbolizes recovery and motherhood. (Maternity is generally one of the keywords for the FOUR OF SWORDS.) Jupiter, symbolizing the protective hypostasis of fire (light grave), in an inverted FOUR OF SWORDS can give such a negative manifestation as tyranny. FOUR OF SWORDS excludes vanity.
