What does the Four of Swords mean?

August 3, 2015

Four of Swords -- Tarot of the MastersToday I’m using a quote from a post from PostSecret.  (Perhaps this is not exactly a pithy meaning for the Four of Swords so much as it is a pithy understanding of how it may relate to someone?) —
“I love sleep. My life has a tendency to fall apart when I’m awake.” — Ernest Hemingway

The following expansion on this is adapted from a comment on the PostSecret Facebook page:

We should note that Hemingway battled depression for a long time and ended up committing suicide, so it makes a lot of sense that he would have said this.  When someone is in a state of depression, everything seems to fall apart except when you’re sleeping.


Note: Each of these pithy Tarot meanings is just one facet of its card. Find more of them on my Card Meanings page.  Also, get my Pithy Tarot eBook or the FREE app that uses my pithy Tarot meanings … and LIKE my Pithy Tarot Facebook page!
