Tarot Card Interpretation & Meaning - 7 Of Swords Reversed

7 Of Swords Reversed
Introduction: The 7 of Swords reversed reminds us that "crime doesn't pay," without exception. If you get this card and you are tempted to cheat or take shortcuts in some way, this card gives a clear statement that you are going to get caught - simple as that. Think twice. And if you have found that someone in your life is cheating you, by no means can you simply let it go. They must be called to account, if you are to keep this relationship. This does not mean you should assume that someone is cheating; this only applies if you know for a fact that they are.

General: This is a time to think carefully about the way things are "supposed to be done," and whether or not you are meeting that standard. It may be time to clean up your act. Take things one step at a time and don't try to do everything at once. You already know in your gut where the most important changes need to be made.

Work: As with the upright 7, the appearance of the reversed 7 of Swords in the context of work, can mean that your employer is looking at your work and what you do very closely. This is not a time to try to "get away" with anything whatsoever; you will surely be found out. Something which seems very small to you (like taking home a few pens from work) may seem like a huge breach of trust and result in major problems at work with your boss, up to and including the possible loss of your job. If you are looking for work, play up your trustworthiness and willingness to commit.

Love: You may be feeling a sense of dissatisfaction with your love relationships when this card appears. If that is the case, and you are in a committed relationship, give deep thought to why and what you are dissatisfied about before speaking to your partner about it. Also consider what your role is in the conflict or problem in the relationship. Is there something you should or could be doing differently?


Finances: When the reversed 7 of Swords appears, you are probably getting good advice about money but you may be tending to ignore it. Listen hard to what you hear other people saying. This is not a time to gamble or take risks with money in any way. Make sure you know what you are getting into. If it sounds too good to be true, it probably isn't true.

Health: Trust the wisdom of your body and of your higher power/the universe when the reversed 7 of Swords appears in the context of a health question. If you think you need more rest, then rest, even if you just got back from a two week vacation! If you feel the urge to talk to someone about your health concerns then do so. At the same time, don't hesitate to get second or third opinions when it comes to invasive procedures.

Spirituality: This is a good time to keep your own counsel when it comes to your spiritual beliefs. You can associate with others without believing everything they believe, of course. However, if you keep an open mind and open eyes and ears, you can receive spiritual wisdom now from people (and from the universe) whether or not you are really trying to do so. Inspiration can come in a nanosecond sometimes.
