This week's card is the Four of Swords (reversed). In its upright position, this card indicates a time of rest and rejuvenation. It reminds you to rest, relax and take time for renewal. Now is a time of retreat and relief after stress. Out of this will come greater strength and insights as to what is next.

Today, however, the Four of Swords is in its reversed (upside down) position. Instead of taking a needed time out, this indicates that you have had some time for spiritual renewal and now it's time to get back into the action.
It's time to get back to work, possibly on something that you have set aside for some reason. It may also mean that it's time to take a firm stand on a conflict you've possibly been avoiding. And more gently, it can indicate that you are feeling better or are recovering nicely and can now resume your former level of activity.
Because the Four of Swords is a time for both spiritual and physical renewal, you may be feeling more spiritually connected and content. The feeling is like waking up after a refreshing nap to take on the rest of your day. Get the idea?
A Personal Example:
Two of my kids have been staying with family for the past two weeks. I've missed them, yes, but have also been enjoying more time to myself, less driving around, less mess, less laundry, etc. AND, I also miss them...a lot! But it's A LOT easier with only one kid!!!
My Four of Swords (reversed) is me getting ready to welcome my kids back and preparing for them (mentally, spiritually and physically). They come back today and I've been rushing around washing and changing bed linens, catching up on some household chores and getting ready to face their arrival with preparation, joy and enthusiasm.What does the Four of Swords (reversed) indicate for you today? What are you ready to face, tackle or handle that perhaps you had put aside?
Welcome the Four of Swords (reversed) energy into your life. It will help you to keep moving forward.
