The Seven of Swords, Minor Arcana, signifies deception and sneakiness. The truth remains hidden. Betrayal takes the forefront at any cost. Nothing is safe — be it property, ideas, or governmental position. Often done with much secrecy and with the attitude of not being caught, you tend to live in solitude. However, there is a flaw. Someone will catch on. There is a temptation to run away from problems rather than face them. Slipping out of sight seems like a good way out. Subtlety and diplomacy are being used cunningly. Keep in mind, this may not be you, but you can fall victim to such an individual.
You may have been deceived or you were the deceitful one. There are feelings of confusion. This is a time for reflection on old behavior patterns. A desire for change is working its way in. Old ways of thinking and behavior patterns are difficult to change. Hard work is necessary to take the first step in a new direction. Apologies should be given. You are now having to face unwanted criticisms. If you take advice to heart from well meaning people, things will start to change for the better. It is time to let go of your old ways.
