The Seven of Swords Tarot Card
Gaining advantage by stealth. Taking calculated risks. Possibly spying or deceptiveness for strategic reasons. Sometimes an elopement is suggested. Often interpreted as a forthcoming journey overland, which may be made in secret. Also could suggest a clandestine affair.
Lack of confidence or perhaps guilt prevent risk taking. Possibly taking stock of previous actions and working to right past wrongs. Working for forgiveness. Also a warning to be wary of others secretly working to gain advantages.
