Four of Swords by nexus7

This card is one of the minor cards from my deck of cards, called the Chalice pack, which I started to create in the late ’80’s.

There are 40 minor cards, not including the Court Cards in the Tarot, from each of the 4 suits – Wands, Coins or Disks, Cups and Swords. Fours represent stability – or stagnancy, Swords, the scapel of intellect. This card could represent Truce – or Stalemate.

The text for this card is on my site here, at:

The major cards have been published by Adam Mc Clean.

I took two two-year part-time courses in painting and working with mixed media in the 80’s and exhibited with the Dream Illustrators in Coventry, as well a putting on two solo exhibitions, until moving to Brighton in 1994. There I exhibited with the Bear Cave Gallery.

    Well…. I think this is the first minor arcane that we have received here…
    and I feel glad for it…
    I know that the Mayor are more attractive… but well.. this is a chellenge.
    Blue is the colour of the swords…
    stability of thoughts… equilibrium and stated mind.
    Close to the Earth.. ready to open to new realms… so the pyramid is there ready to ascendd to the heaven.

    You are welcome, Rosa.

    I see the card as more to do with ‘truce’ or ‘peace’ though thse are a little simplified as interpretations.

    I did not download many of my cards here, but maybe some of them could work as posters. I can sned you my 3 of Cups too, if you wish
