This is the first time the Four of Swords has appeared in the daily tarot sequence since I began this blog on Ash Wednesday 2019. Appearing as it does on Friday, the day dedicated to Venus, I feel that the restful atmosphere of the arcana, it takes on a special significance. Typically, the arcana is seen to represent some kind of truce or respite after a battle or struggle. Today, however, it seems more fitting to contemplate the arcana of rest in the light of Venus, and we have the ideal example in Botticelli’s painting of Mars and Venus.
