Seven of Swords Symbolism in Raider Waite Tarot Deck

Seven of Swords in Raider Waite Tarot Deck depict a  man quickly blowing away five swords; two other swords of this card stick out in the ground. Disguised camp aside.

The Seven of Swords shows the back of the Magician, with whom it is related by the golden background of both cards. The power of knowledge, a clear, sharp mind are transformed here into tricks and intrigues, meanness and deceit. In a milder form, it can be an evil language, intellectual arrogance, or the position “my hut from the edge” – unwillingness to notice some things, the habit of boobbing, evading, filing, etc. At the same time, it is not clear who is deceiving whom here, who we are – a swindler or a victim. But most often it turns out that we are harming ourselves here.

The Tarot card depicts a temporary tent camp. The man hesitantly carries five swords and looks back at two more, which he did not take, apparently forgotten by him in absent-mindedness. Or maybe he just can’t carry with him all the weapons that he found in the enemy camp. Tents symbolize instability: in the realm of the unknown, consciousness feels like a thief sneaking up to the enemy – it can reject and lose all its past achievements. In this situation, it is important to determine the guidelines of thought, remembering your previous goals: this will provide support and more confident movement in the future. Turning to the past can become a “memory of the future”, and secrets of the depths of the soul – future heights of thought: unless, of course, they remain secrets. The essence of this decade reflects the statement that laziness is the engine of progress,

Seven of Swords shows Vanity, Melancholy

Seven of Swords stands for The third decade of Aquarius from February 9 to 18.

The third decade of Aquarius is ruled by the Moon and Neptune, the planets of Faith and mystics, symbolizing the flight of thought into the beyond realms of utopia. In this decade, the mind gives itself to the service of the soul and accepts its aspirations, hopes and illusions: it breaks away from reality and experiences surprise and confusion in front of those properties of which it had never even suspected. This decade is characterized by a departure into dreams and a melancholy detachment from a sober assessment of practical life.

SEVEN – this is the most perfect of numbers. At its stage, the desire for excellence is manifested, therefore actions at the level of the Seven of Swords are distinguished by sophistication, subtlety, although sometimes excessive. Neptune gives SEVEN SWORDS illusions. He (Neptune) pushes the fact that the desired is perceived as real, and in fact, the Path to the intended Goal is more difficult and longer.

At the same time, this card combines the idealism of Aquarius and the halfness of Libra. (The partial achievement of what was conceived also implies the existence of a certain amount of what has not been achieved.) But the SEVEN is not as maximalistic as the THREE or FIVE. Therefore, it is able to be satisfied with a partial result.
