Upright: This card represents a time to take a break. Your mind is feeling tired or overworked and you need a mental reprieve before you continue on. Just as the man rests peacefully in the image, you are in need of complete solitude in order to recuperate your mental and physical strength. It may also be telling you it is time for a vacation away. It is safe for you to take a break right now.
Reversed: If this card is pulled in a reverse position, it can indicate complete mental overload. It is telling you that you have pushed yourself too far and rest is of the utmost priority. Your thinking is becoming sloppy and it will begin to affect your life and your performance. It is telling you that it’s time to look at your life and cut back on the excess things that are sapping your energy. This reversed card can also represent a feeling of restlessness. Perhaps you have been resting too long and are now beginning to feel anxious for not making any progress on your goals. If this is the case, sit down and make a plan of action to be implemented immediately.
