The Seven of Swords
card suggests that my power today lies in scruples
. I will not cheat myself, look the other way, sneak or be distracted by superficial perceptions disguised as appeal, entitlement, rescue, comfort or security.

I am empowered by expectation and opportunity and my virtue is forewarning or accountability.
