Featured deck: Cosmica Somnis Tarot

Beware of deceit and betrayal, but also trust in your own cunning and ability to outsmart any opponent.


The Seven of Swords in the upright position may indicate that someone is being dishonest or deceitful in a situation. It could also imply that the individual is being strategic or resourceful in finding a solution to a problem, even if it means going behind someone's back. Alternatively, this card could also signify the need to take extra precautions to protect oneself from potential harm or danger.

Example: You may feel that someone is not being truthful with you, or you may need to keep your guard up in a situation where you feel vulnerable. On the other hand, this card could also suggest that you need to take calculated risks to achieve a goal, but you should be aware of the potential consequences.


In the reversed position, the Seven of Swords may indicate that someone is caught in their lies and is facing the consequences of their actions. Alternatively, this card may suggest that the individual is struggling with their conscience and may need to come clean about their deceit. It could also imply that someone is no longer able to get away with their dishonest behavior and needs to change their ways.

Reversed Example: You may be experiencing the repercussions of someone else's lies or deceitful actions. Or, you may be struggling with your own dishonesty and need to take responsibility for your actions. Alternatively, this card could also suggest that you need to be cautious about trusting others, as they may not have your best interests at heart.
