Seven of Swords - The Thief

It seems obvious what this man is doing within the 7 of Swords Tarot card, but is it really?

The Swords within the Tarot deck are said to represent thoughts, decisions, and mental upset. The numerology of 7, according to Tarot guides, represents self-awareness or spiritual choice.

So, how do these keywords combine to mark this man as a thief?

Perhaps this card reveals more about the victim rather than the man himself. If you've ever been burglarized, stolen from, or deceived, you quickly become aware of how easily you can become a victim, causing mental upset.

Should you be cautious in your business dealings? Keep your plans to yourself?

This, my friend, is why you need to rely on your own intuitions to interpret the Tarot. A picture is worth a thousand words, and put some keywords on top of that, and well, you have a tangled mess, don’t you?

Of course, this is also the attraction of the cards: so many things to see, to create, to imagine, all from a card or two.

Some Word Play:

The 7 of Swords as a character is definitely a thief, there is no doubt on this one, at least not for me. Of course, Robin Hood was a thief, was he not? So, good or bad, is yet to be seen.


Sneaking and cunning, I plot and plan, setting my goals into actions. I’m smarter than you, you see, for I have the patience to outmaneuver you and eventually win.


Tip toe, tip toe, I move through the night unseen. You may be missing a bracelet, a watch, or a ring, but you’ll never suspect me.


I think things through, form a plan, and wait for the right moment to proceed.

I take one step at a time, adjusting my movements as needed. I will succeed, where others have rushed toward failure.


I concentrate on a single task and complete it with ease. Only then do I begin another task, staying focused on my work at hand.

Final Words

Watch out for the man standing too close, he may be after your wallet. The internet is also full of creeping thieves, waiting for an opportunity.
Don’t take on more tasks than you can complete. Put multitasking to the side. Focus on one job at a time. You’ll accomplish it faster and more effectively.

Enjoy your week!

The Week Ahead – Higher Intuitions Oracle

As this year has brought to me many messages through the Animal Spirits, I've come to love this deck, Higher Intuitions Oracle, with its animal images and wonderful, insightful messages. So, I turn to it for this week’s outlook.

I ask the question: What do I need to be aware of as I move through the week ahead?

The Owl with its message of Wisdom appears.

Quote from Companion book:


As I look upon the card, I think, “Watch, listen, and learn.”

This week should be one of stepping back and observing. I should be aware of what’s going on around me and careful not to overlook the truth of the issues. If I can bring myself to wait it out, secrets and knowledge will be revealed and become clear.

The companion book suggests listening to intuition and gut instincts. The interpretations given to signs are most likely correct. It also warns of someone keeping a secret or being untruthful. Your second sight will reveal the answers.

From Spirit-Animals - Use your inner wisdom right now because it is trying to tell you something. Trust it.

I thought you might also enjoy this view of an owl stopping for a drink of water. I found it on YouTube. It's short, but a nice view of this awesome creature. Enjoy!

Queen of Cups - Haiku Poem

Nurturing, caring,
A mother’s intuition,
I shall guide you child.
