A capped figure lays in a bed under a quilted blanket, pillows tucked comfortably under the person's head. There are three swords hanging, point down, on the wall behind the bed and one laid next to the bed so that the person could take it up if needed.
There's a stained-glass window on the wall next to the swords, and between the window and the swords there is a shield that looks heart shaped to me, with an image on it of a lion walking upright and carrying a white banner.
The lion-heart shield reminds me that courage is needed here - this person is resting, but not hiding...recuperating but not utterly laid out - the one sword still at hand shows that, even in rest, one has a part in the healing process.
I have a hard time with the need to recover.. it always feels like a weakness to me (I am much more wise about this when it comes to other people's needs for healing), so I tend to let exhaustion be my cue, which of course makes the recovery longer and harder than it needs to be.
This card is telling me that bravery isn't always related to keeping on...sometimes, it takes bravery to stop and rest. And it's definitely calling up the energy of my day today - for a number of reasons I've been on the receiving end of a lot of other people's stress (not in a negative way other than a couple of smallish hostile/cranky episodes) and it's shoved out my energy for dealing with some of my own stressors. I need to back off from being everyone else's sounding board and deal with myself today.
