7 of Swords - A different perspective
"carrying burdens, but these are not your own."
As many of you know, this is not the normal interpretation of this card. The Seven of Swords is a thief. He grabs what he can and tiptoes away, usually undetected. The card can represent you as the thief or it could be a warning of something being taken from you.
It's important when reading cards to follow your intuition, even if it goes against all that you know.
I'm very aware of what the card is referring to in my life. I feel this is a message for me to step back from the current situation. The battle is not my responsibility. It is not my fight. I need to hand those swords back to their owner and walk away.
When selecting a card for the week, the energy of the card can affect a multitude of people. The energy can touch a person individually. But it may also show itself on a larger scale, affecting a community or country, a public figure or situation.
In reflection of my interpretation of this card's energy for the week, here are some questions you may ask yourself.
Am I carrying burdens that don't belong to me?
Have I taken on a problem that has nothing to do with me?
Have I allowed myself to become distracted by someone else's challenge?
Am I really helping in this situation, or am I interfering?
Have a blessed week!
