The Seven of Swords
is the card guiding us through the week of August 5 to 11 2019.
As I look at the figure in the card I get a feeling of danger as well as secrecy.
Is the person stealing or is she running away quietly?
The way she is holding the swords is protective, possessive and potentially harmful at the same time.
She is looking at the two swords hanging high in the bookcase.
Should she take those two also? Or is she questioning her own action?
Her cape is blowing ahead of her, giving me the impression that the wind is pushing her in the direction she is going.
What does it all mean?
The number Seven is abut conflict, introspection and pause. We are not where we want to be yet.
Swords is Air which represents challenges, integrity, communication, thinking and strategy.
The main concern of Air is clarity and identity.
The appearance of the Seven of Swords suggests we keep our senses alert.
Someone is hiding information from us, deceiving us or trying to get away with something.
Are you that person? If so, why are you hiding your thoughts and actions?
What are you trying to do? Why the secrecy?
Who are you hiding from?
What do you think will happen if or when your actions become known?
Is the goal worth the consequences?
The blowing cape reinforces the idea of Air , the presence of wind and the sense of speed.
Timing is an important factor.
There is a small window of opportunity to act.
If you are thinking of leaving a job, a relationship or a place, do it now. It will be easier than later on.
Last but not least, sometimes keeping a low profile (short term) is the safe thing to do.
Lot’s to think about as we begin the week.
Be alert, be safe and be clear on what your motives are.
