“To look and judge is an act of the brain. To witness and observe is an act of Spirit.“
The 4 of Tools is the capacity to consolidate and categorize what is visible in the order of things. It is important to remember balance is only what is seems to be. There is always more to learn.
The 'Nan Yar - Who Am I' card game for personal development includes four colors - or groups - of fourteen cards each. We know these colors from normal card games and the Tarot game as well. The colors represent the Challenges, Insights, Gifts and Tools that everyone has in his or her life. Besides the colors, the game has 21 Trump Cards, or Archetypes, that each have their own Challenge, Insight, Gift or Tool.
The Tools represent those mechanisms that help us to realize a goal in the physical world. Money, for instance is a means to a goal, but also the travels you make, the work you do, the book you write, your meditation practice or physical exercises, are steppin’ stones on the road to personal development. As such they are a Tool, rather than a target. In the game of Tarot they coincide with Coins/Pentacles.
Characteristics: Consistency, Foundation, Meaning.
Every number has a unique energy, and therefore a unique meaning and role in the interpretation of the card, in combination with the color or the archetype.
The 4 is the number of balance, also called the ‘comfort zone’, that state of being when we feel at ease. This indicates that there is actually more to consider. Therefore, you must move ‘out of the box’ to number 5. The 4 represents balance, decisiveness, action, conformation.
