The number 7 in Tarot is a deeply philosophical and spiritual number. When you see the seven’s come up in abundance it speaks of the need for introspection. People who carry this number often need time alone to unwind and to contemplate things before opening up to others.
Seven often comes up around introverted people, those who are deeply thoughtful and compassionate, but tend to not wear their heart on their sleeve so to speak. As a result, they may be mistaken for disconnected or aloof, but in reality, they simply prefer to process their emotions independently.
Sevens in abundance suggest that this quality is something that would best serve the current situation. Rather than rely too heavily on the opinions of others or what you “think” you should do, be still and sit with the current issue. Allow your answers to flow to you and don’t over-analyze, but allow.
This card often comes up around resistance. You know those times that you look back on and think “I really knew better, but I did it anyway”… Sometimes we are not willing to listen to the still, small voice of Spirit. Seven’s in abundance warn us not to do this, but to internalize and contemplate before moving ahead in haste.
Strengths of the Seven: Intuitition, higher levels of awareness and the ability to solve problems using well-rounded thought patterns. Introspection and considering the higher meaning and purpose of all situations. Slow, thoughtful, deliberate actions.
Challenges of the Seven: A tendency to be too self-involved at times or oblivious to others, can appear aloof or disconnected. Sometimes 7’s feel so misunderstood that they do disconnect from others when they might benefit from some added perspective.
