We all encounter temptations in our lives, and sometimes we give in to some which aren’t good for us or for anyone around us. This Seven of Swords comes up today, reversed, to warn you to be on your guard for this phenomenon. Either you or someone you know could be on the brink of making an impulsive decision that would have negative repercussions. There’s an emphasis here on secrecy, sneakiness, and taking something that rightfully belongs to another. This card often suggests an illicit love affair, but can also indicate stealing, plagiarism, forgery, and backstabbing gossip that damages a person’s good name. Be alert to the behavior of others during this time, and take great care with your own choices. Be scrupulously honest and honorable. Any misstep is likely to lead to grief in the long run.
