The Seven of Swords represents deceit, deception, plotting, ingenuity, and resourcefulness. This card depicts a man fleeing from a military garrison with five swords. He peers back and over his shoulder at the two swords he has left behind. He is beaming and thereby expressing his pleasure at evading detection.
The Seven of Swords serves as a gentle reminder that everything has both a dark and a bright aspect. Because we fear that we will not be appreciated for who we are, this card represents the dishonesty that is common in relationships. It also represents the sensible limit of putting one’s own requirements first. Keep in mind that you cannot give to others what you do not give to yourself. Your needs are equally important.
Meaning of the upright Seven of Swords as Feelings
The Seven of Swords is commonly interpreted as betrayal and deceit. This card may indicate that you or a close acquaintance or relative are having difficulty getting away with anything. Sometimes, in order to avoid detection, we are compelled to act cunning. When exposed, we must face the consequences, which may include humiliation, punishment, or worse.
This may occur when you are required to act swiftly and in a manner that is rather devious and out of character. The likelihood of a secret becoming public has increased. The desire to leave quietly indicates that something is no longer proceeding as anticipated.
You decide to go incognito instead of coping with the situation, in the hope that no one will see you. It is possible that you ignored this issue in the expectation that it would go away on its own, thereby causing it to worsen and spread.
The central question when analysing the Seven of Swords is whether your current situation can be resolved by leaving. You may assume you have escaped, but when you attempt to flee, you discover that you are trapped and being discovered.
Sometimes, the Seven of Swords represents a determination to go it alone. You may feel the need to conduct independent investigation outside. If you want to circumvent group consensus and demonstrate your independence, this may be a successful strategy.
The Seven of Swords may encourage you to pursue this path, as an eccentric genius can occasionally produce a breakthrough.
