Tarot Card Interpretation & Meaning - 7 Of Swords

7 Of Swords
Introduction: The 7 of Swords can point to someone who is behaving with less than ethical intentions. It sometimes also means prying into someone's life where you don't belong. If you sense that someone is spying on you, you may be right. If you are tempted to dig through someone else's life (unless it is that of your minor child who has given you cause for concern), resist the impulse. Everyone deserves privacy.

General: If you are involved in any sort of competition this month (formal or informal) you will want to keep a close eye out for any cheating. This can range from anything from someone cheating at a pick-up poker game to someone trying to frame you at work for something serious. The bottom line is basically to cover your tail, make sure you are doing things the right way, and then you'll have nothing to worry about, even if someone is out to get you.

Work: In the context of work, the appearance of the 7 of Swords can mean that your employer is looking at your work and conduct very closely. Keep your shoulder to the grindstone, and make sure your work is above reproach. Try not to get involved in work politics. If you're looking for work, don't hesitate to speak to people you know or have worked with in the past.

Love: If you're already in a committed relationship when this card appears, the clear message is that trust is crucial. If you're feeling suspicious for some reason about your partner, make a point to talk about this even if it's difficult. Being passive-aggressive is only going to make things worse. If you're looking for love, you may meet someone interesting now, but try to avoid appearing as though you just aren't interested in a relationship; prospective suitors will move on to someone who is more engaged. Strive for balance.


Finances: When the 7 appears, this is definitely not the time to gamble or to loan money, as you are likely to lose to a major degree. You may have to make some tough choices with regards to money – don't sacrifice your integrity just for a buck, ultimately your self esteem and your spiritual well being will suffer. Money can't buy those things.

Health: Don't take the first pronouncement you hear about your health as the gospel. Get a second or even third opinion before you sign up for anything that is irrevocable health-wise (invasive procedures or surgery.) Be open to spiritual healing, but if you are struggling with a serious illness, know that a cure is not always equated with "healing." There are many ways to heal. What exactly needs healing in you and in your life?

Spirituality: Be very cautious about religious or spiritual gurus or leaders that require your money in exchange for so-called enlightenment. The truth is that you don't necessarily need a leader to learn and grow spiritually. Explore on your own. Be careful with new-found spiritual friends.
