The Four of Fire is symbolic of focused mind, emotion, and deliberate action that, once applied, lend impetus and momentum.
It means acting with both skill and accuracy, and establishing a work ethic or creative process that is a reflection of both. It is about focusing on the task at hand, making it the center of our attention, and not allowing distractions to cause us to lose sight of our target or objectives.
The Four of Fire represents showing discipline by devoting regular time and energy to repeated practice and application, which, in turn, increases skill and ability – and in doing so, make one’s actions more confident, and therefore faster. Goals manifest faster, and outcomes are achieved with less energy wasted.
With time and practice, a process can become as natural as breathing and mistakes become fewer.
Unlike other animals, humans are not born with the innate knowledge required to survive; to survive, we must be both willing and prepared to learn. A baby first crawls, then walks, and then learns to run. That same baby cannot run before it has first learned to crawl and walk. We learn primarily through a process of repetition and practice. Without repetition and practice, we may be able to learn the rudiments of a new skill, but we cannot become brilliant or accomplished at it, even if we are naturally gifted.
If the Four of Fire appears in a reading, it signifies the importance of focus, dedication, discipline, and practice on a physical level. It suggests we concentrate, now, and do what needs to be done. The way we improve and achieve things faster is by devoting our attention and focus to practice. There is no such thing as an overnight success. You must first pay your dues. To be the best takes time.
