Seven of Swords - Tarot Card Meaning

Upright: Deception, Discreet, Secrets

Reversed: Escape, Clearing Conscience, Reveal


Upright Meaning

Sneaky, sneaky! Be careful who you confide in, as you may not be able to trust them with your secrets. This is a time to be discreet and protect yourself, as confiding in others can bring more harm than good. Underhanded methods used to gain the upper hand can be rewarding, if you don’t get caught. Deception is at play, whether it is you being the predator or the prey. You are seeing what you can get away with and pushing past boundaries to gain advantage. Seeking shortcuts seems appealing, as you don’t want to waste any time or effort on the things that don’t matter in the long run. In your eyes, you’re working smarter, not harder. However, be clear on what this course of action will do to your conscience and the possible impact that it will have on others.

Reversed Meaning

Tired of keeping secrets, you want to show everyone your most authentic self. Face- to-face with old beliefs and patterns, you have now built enough courage to embrace radical honesty. Lying and sneaking around were weighing you down and lowering your vibration. If you are thinking of making a dishonest decision, the Seven of Swords Reversed is a sign that you will for sure get caught and will pay the price! You are tired of keeping up with any charades and are retiring from the role that you were playing. Deceptive ways are behind you and you’d much rather live in truth and clarity. You’re willing to put in the hard work to build up new healthy patterns that will support and sustain you in pursuing your goals and dreams. The truth will set you free!
