SEVEN OF SWORDS – UPRIGHT
When upright, the Seven of Swords indicates that the user is embroiled in a sticky web of lies, deceit, and betrayal. You may be the one sneaking around with bad intentions. If so, you have no guarantee of successfully getting away with it. Take heed and correct your course. If you are the victim in this situation, be wary of those around you who may not have your best intentions at heart. Prioritize yourself over others and, if necessary, consider taking some shortcuts to get closer to your ultimate goal. You may need to be selfish if a situation arises where you are asked to sacrifice one thing for another. Fleeing from adversity to protect yourself at this time will only yield short-term safety. Come to terms with the fact that you will eventually have to face whatever it is head on.
