Those who read tarot know the four of swords. Even without the many unique images various artists have used to illustrate the card, (and I recommend an image search, there are many that offer amazing insights- such as this one where the ladder of swords provides a risky and probably painful exit, and other which begs the question who is waiting for your recovery), it usually conveys a period of isolation, and enforced rest in which healing takes place.
Swords generally suggest problems you need to fight, and four represents stability, security, a foundation, these combine to suggest a rest from fighting problems that paves the way to a stronger return.
This year many of us find ourselves learning the lessons of isolation due to the pandemic. Life offers us different ways of receiving these lessons, as Tarot cards offer us upright and reversed meanings for the same card. The Upright 4 of Swords suggests rest, recuperation, the benefits of meditation, whereas Reversed it suggests that you are not getting benefit from the lack of movement, but experience it as stagnation, exhaustion, and frustration at your inactivity. You may feel you have been exiled, banished, isolated, rather than seeing it as a sabbatical in which your spirit is being renewed. Given the source of the lock-down, a more stressful interpretation may be appropriate. However, as a reading should offer us ways to deal with the situations we find ourselves in, thinking about our options may give perspective that allows us to turn the situation around, making it more positive.
When stuck in traffic, we may see more of what is around us than if we are speeding along with our eyes on the road, or at least we can take the time to look for alternate routes on the GPS. Looking for different paths to our objectives is often beneficial. Whether we chose this slowdown or it was chosen for us, we can seek to find ways to benefit from it.
