Seven of Swords Upright Draw Meaning

Though the Seven of Swords is often tied to betrayal and deception, it isn’t predicting that you actually get away with what you are trying to accomplish underhandedly. You may be tempted to do something deceptive to get ahead, but the Seven of Swords is urging caution. If you go through with this sneaky plot, you will soon find yourself in over your head and overwhelmed by the sheer number of repercussions that follow.

Just because the path seems easy doesn’t make it right.

Also, if you’ve been hiding something that you did wrong, you probably didn’t get away with it as cleanly as you’d hoped. What negative effects have those actions delivered? Are others treating you differently? Relationships and reputations have definitely been affected by this deception, and now you are tasked with taking on a more morally upright way of living. This may even mean excluding yourself from the crowd for the time being.

On a lighter note, this is the card of the rebel. It may be time for you to forge your own path and break away from tradition. You don’t need to follow anyone to be happy or successful.

If you listen closely, then your overall impression will not be wrong. Also, pay close attention to the cards around the Seven of Swords to see what’s really going on.

Seven of Swords In Career And Finances

Scrutiny at work is going to be on the rise. Your employer is going to be staring you down and judging the quality of your work. This could be a good thing if you are in line for a promotion. Still, try not to get involved with work drama or politics. Focus solely on your work and drive a positive outcome home.

Money-wise, you shouldn’t gamble. You will undoubtedly lose. Yes, you’ll have to make some tough choices when it comes to how you spend, so don’t do something unfortunate and sell yourself short—literally. Money can’t buy back your reputation.

Seven of Swords Reverse Draw Meaning

The Seven of Swords reversed indicates that you’re having difficulties moving forward. The step you need to take is there, but you feel that it is impossible to create the changes you eventually want to make. Thus, you’ve grown fearful of going beyond your comfort zone. The suggestion written in this card is to break those habits that bind you to a set routine.

Act on what’s happening now rather than escaping or retreating. Release yourself from inhibitions and limits so that you don’t become trapped by a specific way of thinking.

It may also point to you knowing that someone is doing some dodgy. Are you going to blow the whistle on them or pretend you don’t know what’s going on?

When this card comes up, it is always best to use caution and look out for red flags.
