The Four of Swords is a time of rest and recuperation so that you can assimilate those potential hurts and loss experienced in the Three of Swords. Time spent away from your situation on holiday. Deciding you require friends rather than lovers or partners for the time being. Finding people with similar interests and ideas. Solace in the group.
The Four of Swords is called Truce. This seems rather on the lines of “the strong man armed, keeping his house in peace”. The masculine nature of air makes it dominant. The card is almost a picture of the formation of the military clan system of society.
