The Seven Of Swords In Tarot represents times when you feel you want to act on your own accord and bypass a person or group of people and be a lone wolf in order to get what you want. You may be tempted to act in a way that you know in your heart is wrong or unethical, but you feel you could get away with doing it anyway.Other times you may be around people who are not acting ethically and you may be at risk of being taken advantage of.
Avoid the easy road in life.
The energy of the Seven of Swords is one where your integrity is being challenged. It is human nature to want to take the easy road in many endeavours, however, it is rarely the easiest in the end due to the consequences you encounter later on, as well as one of the the natural laws of the universe as stated by Isaac Newton “For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction”. Put in metaphysical terms this means that the energy in the way you act and think and feel will come back to you in some shape or form. So, you might as well act in ways that are going to increase the positivity in your life.
You may feel that escaping is the best option.
