Upright Seven of Swords Card Meaning

When the Seven of Swords is upright in a Tarot reading, it means you or someone connected to you wants to be a "lone wolf." A lone wolf is someone who runs alone and free, acting totally on his own. This is a card that indicates separation from others. You may feel you're most effective when you act alone. You wish to ignore the fumbling efforts of the ineffectual group and assert your independence. This style of working in isolation is only effective for some people because most of us need to have a commitment from others to be productive. The Seven of Swords card can also signify running away from commitments or responsibilities. There is a need to face what needs to be faced head-on. One just can't wish problems away. Procrastination doesn't work. There is a need to deal with the problems.

Reversed Seven of Swords Card Meaning

When the Seven of Swords is reversed in a Tarot reading, it can mean you feel like a fraud or a phony even if you're not. You or someone near you might be engaging in acts of deception or harboring big secrets.

Seven of Swords Card Love Meaning

The Seven of Swords in a Tarot love reading is an indication of betrayal and lies. If you're single, it means you should be careful when meeting new potential partners. It can also indicate that you need to be more honest in your approach to relationships. If you're in a relationship, it can mean there is some betrayal, dishonesty, or bad action happening. It's not necessarily enough to end the relationship, but it should be addressed.
