7 of Swords – 7 D’épée Tarot | Tarot de Marseille
I. The upright meaning of 7 D’épée Tarot
Wisdom, reaching the highest flexibility and the perfect margin, becomes extremely receptive, illustrated in this card with a blue sword. That positive reflection has turned into the needs of the world. A peaceful mind can bring all potential and spirituality to another. At the moment, we can step out of ourselves; we are humble to give away more. It may be that a scientist has always taken advantage of his research to serve mankind or even an enlightened leader, a powerful Saint.
Often, when you do something secretly, hoping it to be hidden and safe, something goes wrong and your secret is revealed to your greatest embarrassment. This card – 7 D’épée Tarot, therefore, implies caution if you try to trick or cheat to get a benefit from someone or something. There are times in life when it is necessary to act with discretion or to do things in secret.
Maybe, you had to criticize someone. Maybe, you felt it was better to cheat or take a shortcut. If you have to act incognito, You must be fully aware of the hidden consequences of your actions. Taking the simplest and easiest way is not always the best choice and sometimes, it is necessary to make an extra effort to achieve what you want.
7 D’épée Tarot means that you might be tempted to flee a particular context that no longer suits you, rather than dealing with it. As you do not feel ready to face the problems, you are looking for a solution to quickly escape from it and not having to worry about it anymore. Are you trying to escape from commitment, responsibility, tasks or maybe love? You risk procrastinating, letting the problems get worse because you do not want to deal with them.
Sometimes, you have to assume and face bravely. So, the question is: Is this realistic? Will this leak really concretize what you want to accomplish? The most likely answer is no because it is just a short-term solution. What impact did your actions have on others? Could anyone else suspect something? Will there be a backlash?
Even if you have managed to go unnoticed, in the long run, the bluff will not produce the same effects and may cause significant damage to your relationship and reputation instead. You should consider taking a morally more ethical and balanced approach to life from now on. On the other hand, 7 D’épée Tarot also asks you to be cautious and suspicious so as not to become a victim of wrath, treason, deceit, and pretense from someone else.
You have to be careful in where and whom you place your trust over the next few months. Let’s watch out for sneaky behavior and trust your guts when something goes wrong or when things seem too good to be true.
Sometimes, this card also indicates a desire to be alone. You can discover, study and solve all problems using only your mind and resources. You may believe that you have a greater chance of success if you act on your own by ignoring the advice or suggestions of others. This approach is useful when you have to work around an ineffective group or assert your independence, but it can also have limitations. You may end up feeling isolated, excluded, and missing out on that noble sense of collaboration and synergy when working with others. If you feel inclined to act alone, make sure this isolation really works for you.
II. The reversed meaning of 7 D’épée Tarot
When this card becomes negative, it implies that knowledge is being used for criticism, malicious rumors, slander, brutal ideas of destroying the world or evil doctrines.
7 D’épée Tarot is a card of intellectual challenges and ways to overcome. But in reverse, this card means it is hard for you to take the first step in a new direction. Sometimes, it may seem impossible to create the changes you want, as you continually encounter successive obstacles.
Yet you know deep down that when the time is right, you will be able to realize your dreams, which will lighten your heart. This reversed card means you have to give up your old habits and ways of thinking to finally overcome the blockages.
You must accept what is happening to you and act accordingly rather than trying to flee. You have to do things differently, getting rid of old attitudes or limiting beliefs in order to finally move forward in life. Let’s expand your thinking to broader horizons. If you are involved in an extramarital affair or relationship, the reversed 7 D’épée Tarot reveals a growing reluctance to support this kind of relationship. You or your partner may feel more and more uncomfortable with this relationship and would rather speak it out.
