Rider Waite Smith Five of Pentacles Tarot Card Meaning

Seven of Swords


The Seven of Swords is a very polarizing card. Some people see trickery and deception and others see mischievous fun. This card encompasses both ends of the spectrum. When harnessed positively, its energy can be subversive and entertaining - a much needed break from the seriousness of obligation. When left to run amok, it can reflect dishonesty, unclear motives, and a desire to shirk duty or escape from conflict, whether real or imagined. 


Naughtiness, trickery, deviousness, cutting loose, escape, avoidance.

Appears As

Acting against one's best interest unknowingly, seeking fun and entertainment, behaving recklessly, breaking societal rules, avoiding conflict, fear of community or groups, justifying one's actions with excuses, looking for release, being unclear of one's own motives.
