Avoiding confrontation · Failure · Incomplete · Theft · Unknown opponents
Another card which indicates forces opposing you, the VII of Swords points to there being a single source of your frustration. This is both positive, in that you may be able to identify that source and change your circumstances, and negative, in that this source may well be aware of you and deliberately sabotaging you. The road to your success does not lie in direct confrontation, however, but instead in guile. Instead of attacking the obstacles raised against you, find ways around them.
It may be time to put some of your projects on the back burner in order to give more attention to more pressing issues. The plans you have made are not coming together as nicely as you hoped.
The best way through a recent conflict will be through diplomacy and cleverness. Avoid overt confrontations.
Your success in the future depends on your ability to overcome opposition. The strategy you choose will determine whether you suffer losses or come out ahead. Assessing the opposition will make your actions better informed.
The Seven of Swords brings failure as well as obvious pessimism. It suggests the possibility of theft or not living up to your full potential in the future either due to unknown opponents or possibly because of mental procrastination on your part. The answer you are looking for is no.
