The seven of swords are a letter of the tarot that speaks to us, generally, of deceits and misdeeds that can affect to us. The drawing is very peculiar, is a bandit who robs five of the seven swords of the scene. To rob is always a very dangerous practice, but to do it in a military camp, like which it shows the figure, is absurd and foolish. The seven of swords teach to us that the cleverness and the confidence can get to be much more powerful tools that the brute force, although seems that this type of solutions is of impossible concretion. But, like all the decks of the lineage of the swords, have a double edge, a particularitity that can damage to the consulting one, and in this opportunity she is the one of the danger to be deceived in our good faith.
This letter talks about generally the plans in which the deceit or the cleverness is a key factor. This one is naipe of the swindler, the thief and the cheater. All these types of people work in solitude, and usually they do not have the capacity to form groups or communities after a communal property. This one detail it makes evident in the fact that two swords they must be left, since it cannot take the seven by itself. Consequently, we can speak of an incomplete victory, although the success seems to be achieveed. In other opportunities the victory is not so complete.
Frequently, the seven of swords foretell a loss because of a ruse or to a deceit. In this ocacin, what it corresponds to us legally or by own right, after a duro work is snatched to us by these improper means. Also a reading can be made complementary: the own deceit takes to the perdicin. The two scenes give lessons us. The immoral victory of another person we must use it as a model than we do not have to do. The deceit is not the best form to win. A well-known proverb says that " to us; the way to good hell is full of intenciones" , and it is this education the one that better adapts in this case. It says this deck that if you must resort to average little ethical, or that needs to deceive the others to win, better it will be to look for another solution. Maquiavelo said that The end justifies the means, but it is not this idea that an honor person accepts.
