Seven of Swords Overview

The Seven of Swords is a card of unstable effort. Sometimes someone puts in the hard work and effort. Other times they do not. Because the effort is not constant, the end result is not either. Thus causing partial, instead of total success. The energy of the Seven of Swords can also indicate that someone is getting away with something. Meaning that perhaps they are only doing half of the work and getting paid for a full job. When this card appears reverse in a meaning unexpected good luck is right around the corner.
