Four of Swords
The Four of Swords has two distinct interpretations: first that our own past prevents us from moving on. We feel stuck, paralysed by our fears and self-doubt generated by failures, pains disappointments or betrayals of the past. It is important to look at these fears in the cold light of day and they will soon disappear.
The second interpretation is that confrontation with others is not appropriate right now. Instead of rushing in to make a decision or forcing an issue, stand back, retreat, find time to think things through or contemplate the true nature of your current situation.
