Three black quills lay flat on a parchment in mid-stream of script, covered by a fourth white quill floating above them. The Four of Quills is a card of retreat and rest, in a fast-paced world dominated by technology and ephemeral communications.
During patterns of intense mental or intellectual activity when toxic arguments, conflict and criticism takes hold, the Four of Quills reminds you to step back, remove yourself from the fray and quiet the mind. There is nothing to be gained at this point by joining in the backbiting of your colleagues; take the high road and wait until the storm passes.
Reversed: Rest, recuperation, reframing of conflicts to see the solution. After a quiet hiatus from the action, you are refreshed and ready to come back to your work with a new perspective.
