Seven of Swords


If you want to succeed, you need to find a new way.

Tarot Reading

This is a picture of a man sneaking into a military camp to steal swords. He only steals five, and the other two stay in the original place. One man’s strength is always limited, so he has no way to engage the enemy openly, but can only adopt this cunning means to weaken the enemy’s combat power. The two swords left represent the danger of this behavior, and a little carelessness would lead to tragedy. However, in such a difficult situation, instead of flinching, he shows full confidence, which is very commendable. The expression on his face seems to imply that he has succeeded, but it is not. As long as he leaves a sword to the enemies, damage will be inevitable. The Seven of Swords tells people that when doing something difficult, if they want to succeed, they must make a lot of effort. It also implies that this kind of stealing may work once or twice, but not always.


The Seven of Swords represents deception, cunning actions, betrayal, and trickery. The party involved may be the one who lies or the one who is deceived.

The relationship seems to be good, but there are actually many insurmountable difficulties. It may be a temporary success, but it is hard to last.

You may have used cheating or other improper means in your study to get good grades, but this is not a long-term solution, and it is best to accumulate your advantages in a practical way.

Your previous financial situation was not stable. Perhaps overconfidence caused you to make irreparable mistakes, so you should plan carefully before you act.
