​Today’s card: VII of Swords

A young man is sneaking away in the early hours from an enemy encampment carrying five swords. There are two swords still stuck in the ground behind him. He’s looking over his left shoulder to see if anyone is giving chase. On the left, to his right in the distance is a group of soldiers. Several are seated and one is standing holding a sword, a spear, or a staff. Beyond them is a storm cloud below a yellow sky. 
This card indicates escapism, strategy, and the disarming of one’s opponents. The escapism could take any number of forms: ignorance, avoidance, procrastination. The thing to remember is that everything has consequences. This is a battle, not the whole war. The enemy is numerous even if they have fewer weapons right now. Keep watching your back.
