Learn the meaning of the Seven of Swords Tarot card
In the Seven of Swords, we see a person carrying five swords in his hands. The person looks as if he is trying to slip unnoticed out of the encampment, which is visible in turn behind her back.

They remain stuck in the ground against the background of the military tents. This is at the same time a very important symbolism for this card, as it informs not only about acting in haste, but also about ill-considered strategy. The whole card has a yellow color scheme and represents a situation of theft, but also of underhanded action in the light of day.
