The easiest association is a thief in your camp. A false friend, backstabbing and machinations against you by cowards, outright theft, and general deception. Usually this is the case. In more esoteric readings this card will indicate some clever action taken to circumvent an existing situation for personal gain, or the act of using an oppressor’s own words or devices against them, and getting away with it. In any case this card almost always deals directly with the issues of deception and schemes or manipulation.

Seven of Swords — Rider Deck Blue Box Seven of Swords : Description: A thief cautiously makes his way from a war camp, taking the swords of his enemies from their armory, thus reducing their ability to do his people damage. As risky as this venture is, the warriors in the background do not seem to notice him. It looks as if the day is his after all.

Please Note: Aleister Crowley labels this card (in his Thoth deck) “Futility,” which shifts the protagonist from the thief to the band of warriors in the background. This changes the implications of this card from action, to being acted upon.
