Seven of Swords

Seven of Swords

Today you might need to act swiftly and decisively, especially if you’re wanting to strike while the iron is hot or jump on an opportunity before it’s too late.

The Seven of Swords is all about guile and mental acuity. It speaks of stealth, cunning and ingenuity, which may require you to keep your plans under wraps or to act entirely on your own. 

In some versions of this card, the emphasis is on treachery and evasion. And you do want to be on your guard against suspicious actions and behaviors.

Feeling like you’re being spied on, cheated, stolen from, or lied too are all common aspects of this card.

But this rendition emphasizes planning, cunning, ingenuity and problem-solving. Notice the protagonist deftly slipping away from the sleeping Dragon as he makes his escape.

He’s crept into the Dragon’s lair and has stolen 5 of the 7 swords. Now he must carefully retrace his steps as he makes his way toward the exit.

He must maintain his composure and not lose sight of his mission: one false move could send a river of gold spilling out from under him, which would surely wake the Dragon.

There’s a lot going on astrologically today — and most of it fits in with the imagery in this card. There’s the Pluto retrograde which has to do with stealth, secrecy, and retracing steps. There’s the Mercury conjunct Uranus which speaks of brilliance and ingenuity.  And there’s the Mercury square Jupiter which has to do with overconfidence, risk-taking and pushing past limitations.

While you may have to muster up the confidence and courage to do what must be done today, you do have all of the necessary resources at your disposal. Be prepared to act at a moment’s notice, as there may be opportunities that you’ll have to be on your toes to take advantage of.
