Fours in the Tarot can symbolize stability, security, and groundedness. Yesterday’s card was the Four of Swords, counseling you to take a break in calm solitude and regain your inner equilibrium. Today’s card, the Four of Wands reversed, suggests that your home life or your relationship with friends or family is about to reach a harmonious balance. In the near future, you’ll find yourself celebrating good news with your loved ones. There may have been strife and tension before, but you have managed to allow those unsettled feelings to drift into the past. You (and others) have learned to let go of negativity and instead relate to each other with respect and appreciation. Achieving peace with others isn’t easy - it takes a lot of work and practice to avoid slipping into the old toxic patterns - but when we accomplish it, a huge weight is lifted from our shoulders. We wonder how we could have survived for so long while carrying around that heavy burden.
