It is important to choose your perspective at each moment with care. This moment that is happening right now is really all there is. The past and the future only exist within our imaginations; the present moment is reality. What reality will you choose at this moment in time?
Is it time that you had a break? The Four of Swords is a sign that you need to slow down and rest. Taking time out can be a challenge sometimes but it is essential. You need to recharge and reenergise.
The Ten of Swords is the card we see when we’ve reached the bottom and there is nowhere to go but up. It is always darkest just before the dawn, and this card shows this truth with its depiction of a golden sun rising in the background. This card teaches us that we’re only a victim if we choose to be. Be the phoenix rising from the ashes in your life.
