Seven of Swords
Oh, that sly cat! Knowing that killing birds in the park was frowned upon, the cat came up with the perfect plan that would allow him to enjoy an afternoon hunt and light snack while at the same time frame his greatest rival.
The energy centered around the Seven of Swords is that of going it alone, of making decisions that focus solely on your wants and needs as you perceive yourself to be a bit of an island when it comes to interests of others. It is the attitude that you don't need them, and they don't need you. When we go it alone, it becomes very easy to avoid things that we don't want to face as the only person depending on us is ourselves. When the Seven of Swords appears in a reading, you may want to ask yourself if your current situation or query is being impacted by this lone wolf persona? Are you commandeering a project because you lack faith in others, or perhaps you feel most comfortable when you are the one controlling all the shots? The Seven of Swords may also indicate getting away with something that someone else pays the price for—be aware someone's wicked deeds may leave you in a position that will require you to defend yourself.
