Dark Moon in Scorpio: A Trio of Sword Cards

A Scorpio-heavy sky has me pondering swords cards very often these days, some of which I tend to keep tucked deep in the deck.

The four of swords represents rest. She holds one sword firmly in one hand while three others threaten her into retreat. She is naked in her inactivity, falling gracefully with surrender. This card suggests the effort required in taking rest, and also the circumstances that force rest upon us. It serves simultaneously as a warning and an invitation.
