Tarot 18 - 4 of Fire: "REBIRTH"

Life, death and rebirth are inevitable--- Rig Veda
A surprising encounter brings a renewal of your spirit.
Upon a lake of fire floats the soul bubble  of a many-armed and legged man.  In 4 of his hands he holds 4 candles.  Framing this tarot are assorted lighters, the potential to start a fire at the ready.
INTERPRETATION:  All 4s in each suit reminds us of four legs on a table, or a chair or a stool, four legs balance and make secure.  Four is the number of stability and enhancement.  Normally when fours come into a reading it is a time when an issue or problem in any of the elements you’ve been experiencing is finally coming to a conclusion.
  • In earth four we realise it as a representation of  balanced provisions---having enough to eat, enough to drink, a home and good health, it normally also relates to having enough money to live well upon after a long time of dwindling resources.
  • In fire four we realise it as balanced inspiration and passion---having enough fire in your belly to fight for your needs and rights, it normally also relates to a resurgence or rebirth of your freedom or creativity after a period of feeling confined or having had a period of “writer’s block” regardless of what creative/artistic talent/leaning you have.
  • In water four we realise it as a representation of balanced emotions, in particular loyalty---having someone in your life that you trust implicitly, so much so that you can diverge your secrets to this person or persons after a long time of keeping your feelings to yourself or feeling particularly lonely.
  • In air four we realise it as a representation of balanced intellect---having enough to occupy your mind in a fulfilling and creative way. Thoughts, philosophy, learning, Oscillating from subject to subject flexibly and comprehensibly, communicating well your luscious ideas, after having survived a period of worry, mental instability or depression.
The rebirth experienced in this tarot comes rather un-expectantly and dramatically.  Any injustice or incarceration you have had to endure is finally releasing you now.

Like a breath of the freshest air imaginable you will find a revitalisation of your spirit.  You will feel happy and content and be delighted in the most simple of life’s pleasures and this will make you very popular.  In turn, as you draw people to you, you will feel complete with your relationships.  It should also be a time when you feel very sensual.

Normally what occurs to bring you into this joyful period will come in surprising circumstances that you never would have been able to predict. Even though this tarot dwells in the minor arcana, it is one that encompases the spirit.  It will feel a little bit like falling in love with life.  Kinda like this:
Realise that you are stronger than ever before, renewed.  The old cycle ends, a new one begins and you are prepared for it.
