When pulled upright it is saying that it is time for your to retreat. The three of swords was a very intense card talking about a lot of grief and suffering. This four of swords is telling you to step back from these issues and rest. You may be withdrawing consciously or maybe you just have no choice from sheer exhaustion. You are still surrounded by reminders of your grief but in order to be able to return your everyday life you need to take some time to recoup and rest. There is always that slight chance that there is more loss to experience and you should rest now while you have the chance. It would be really beneficial if you went somewhere private, be it the cottage, a little trip somewhere warm, or maybe the beach and regain your strength and clarity. It is time to go over your priorities and make sure you’re approaching everything the way you want to be/should be. This card is about getting ready new challenges. You are experiencing crisis after crisis and it is wiping you out. You will only be able to face the next challenge after you’ve recouped some. 

When pulled in reverse this card is about feeling restless. Your heart is ready to relax but your brain is not. You are feeling that there is a lot depending on you. Continuing on this path that you’re on is not a good idea and could affect your health. You can keep fighting but you can only endure so much. You have to know your own strength and know when to back out. Letting yourself rest and refresh can be a very important measure of self-love. You can try to push ahead anyway but it will only make things difficult for you long term. 

Here is a tarot spread to help you relax and rest. First I would take out the four of swords and meditate with it thinking about all the conflict that’s been going on and how tired you are. Then shuffle and pull the cards using your preferred method.
