seven of swords

I differ from the more common explanation regarding this card. I see it as a card of peace, of preempting a violent battle by stealing the swords of those about to hurt each other or take lives. Yes, this person is still doing something in secret, something clandestine and they have to be sneaky, but they are doing it because they feel it’s the best way to save the most. They’re leaving behind a couple swords because they can’t carry the weight of all seven swords alone. They can’t solve the entire problem and stop the battles forever, but their only concern is stopping the battle today. I call it the “crusader” card. Trying to constantly keep something or someone safe (like your dog or your child). It often goes unnoticed, the amount of effort behind the scenes keeping harmful things out of the way of someone you love. A little bit Robin Hood and definitely erring on the side of good intentions.

This video series is my own personal perspective of each card and as a Tarot reader, I see different things in the cards for each client. I'm only speaking for myself and these videos are intended to be positive and show my love of the Tarot (in under a minute). Enjoy!
