Artist’s Interpretation & Card Meaning

“Since the beginning, I felt the symbolism of this card that fits perfectly with the type of things that inspire me, so I fell in love right away on the meaning behind it. In the card we can see a girl lying down on a coast, carrying four heavy swords; this represents a period of rest and recovery. The blood on her face and in one of the swords, tell us about a past period of challenges. I’ve tried to draw a calm ocean that symbolizes the meditation and need of spending time in a calm atmosphere. However, she’s also holding one sword in her hand, preparing herself for her next step. This denotes that the challenges will come back to our lives as soon s we’re prepared to face them.”

A maiden by the sea clutches four swords to her chest as she rests after a hard battle. She has come here for respite, and distance from her troubles. The sea behind her is calm, but grey clouds on the horizon show us that new trials will arise. Even at rest, she clasps one of the swords in her hand, a bloody sword that has already seen her through tough times and will do so again. But with time to regain a sense of self, she can face those challenges on her own terms.

This card shows a temporary respite, before you have to get back to the task, or battle, at hand. A time to rest, to contemplate and recharge your mental and spiritual batteries before you get right back to it.
