Four of Swords: Yes Or No?
If the Four of Swords tarot card presents itself to you in the upright position, you can take this as a very positive sign indeed. The great news is the Four of Swords is usually a yes for these kinds of questions, but that isn’t necessarily the focus of the card.
You may be asking a “yes or no” question, but the Four of Swords is much more concerned with your state of being. Are you rested and taking care of your physical, emotional, and spiritual health? If not, the card has come to encourage you to take some time to focus on yourself and your needs. The true answer to your question will come but only after some rest and relaxation.
This card revolves around this concept of caring for yourself for a time. Relaxation and rejuvenation are needed, and you’ve been neglecting to focus on them for far too long. Take some time for self-care and wait for answers and direction to come to you once you’re in a better mindset.
The Four of Swords tells you there are some very exciting times ahead and that your life is going to be blessed. Ultimately, the Four of Swords in upright position is a yes, but it will only come about when you’ve found tranquility. For now, you’re in need of a little rest and self-love.
Does A Reversed Four of Swords Mean Yes Or No?
A Four of Swords card appearing in reverse is not a good sign during a “yes or no” reading. The answer to the question you bring the cards is a no, and the card speaks to the problem being a lack of tranquility and peace in your mind. You are having major difficulty with taking time to relax and practice self-care, and this answer is a direct result of not making your care a priority.
If this card has shown itself in reverse, it’s speaking to your false thinking that the only way to succeed and achieve all your goals in life is to overwork yourself. You must understand that life is more than financial success and wealth. All of the money in the world isn’t going to make you happy if you’re too exhausted and worn down to enjoy life.
The only way you can truly find success and happiness in life is to take the time out to take care of your physical, emotional, and spiritual health. When you do this, you will be able to think with clarity, act with decisiveness, and lead with confidence. When you have rest and wellness, the answer to the questions in your heart may very well change.
Does Four of Swords Mean Yes Or No For Love?
While it’s not set in stone, the Four of Swords tarot card usually means no when it comes to “yes or no” questions regarding love.
The most likely reason for this is that you have continually poured your energy, strength, and power into pleasing a romantic partner who is toxic and has worn you down. This high-maintenance partner has drawn the energy out of your life and you are now depleted.
You can change the predictions of this card by taking steps to fix the problem. Take some time to yourself and refresh your spirit by just being alone and relaxing. Once you are balancing your life more healthily, you will have the energy to put into a relationship and will be able to approach love with a much more balanced energy.
