Advanced MeaningThe Seven of Swords is an invitation to use prudence. and not to charge forwards with your head down. The road of principles and pride is not always the right one. At times we need to know how to hide, to conceal our intentions and abilities. Our mind is capable of inventing new ways of dealing with problems and what is obvious is not always right. When the choices seem limited perhaps there is another road, better, but hidden.
