Key Words for Tarot card - Seven of Swords
This card sometimes represents the style of the "lone-wolf" - his desire to run lone and free. In films, the lone-wolf hero always acts totally on his own accord. He investigates, discovers and solves every problem that comes his way using only his own resources and his wit. He believes that he is successful because he ignores the fumbling and falling efforts of ordinary people.
In Tarot readings, the Seven of Swords can be a clear sign that you or someone else in your vicinity wants to be a lone wolf. You feel that you will be more effective and comfortably successful on your own. This approach is useful when you need to assert your independence or bypass an ineffectual group, but it can also be troubling. We cannot be productive and happy for long without giving some commitment to others. If you feel inclined to act alone, be sure this isolation is really working for you.
Sometimes the seven of swords means that you are running from something - love, commitment, hard work, responsibility. You may be procrastinating, letting problems slip because you don't want to deal with them. Sometimes we just have to face what has to be faced. The Seven of Swords lets you know when you might be making things worse for yourself as well as for others by running away.
The seven of swords can also indicate an ashamed hidden dishonor - a choice you or another has made that does not do justice to the highest. We all make wrong choices in life sometimes that we want to hide. Some of these are minor, while some are serious. Your intuition or your inner voice will tell you when this is happening. When you see the Seven of Swords appearing in a reading, take a good look at what you're doing because hidden dishonors will eat away at your self-respect and happiness.
