7 of Swords
Menu of Contents
Stands for: Thorn
Casting meaning: Thauris is a rune of defense, like the thorn it can resist an attack without a fight. The rune Thyth represents the power of enclosure and has the strength to breakdown disorder and chaos.
The Crossed Spears
Keywords: Arguments, negativity.
Meanings: The Crossed Spears is a rune that signifies arguments and negative events. Often this can be of an upsetting nature, rather like the Tower card in the tarot. It is not all bad though. If it is near to a positive rune it may indicate the end of a quarrel and healing. Especially if it lies near the Rings. This rune could mean a promotion at work, or a fast recovery if you’re ill.
Defense, courage, decisiveness, action that must be taken, confrontation
Tree: Holly (Ilex spp.)
Decisive action, victory. Setting hard limits. Rising above petty disputes and thereby overcoming them. Understanding the opposing force and reacting only when the time is right: the art of war. We are always at war with outside forces, whether it is advertisers trying to worm their way inside our heads with television and media or others trying to impose their belief systems on us out of insecurity and the fact misery loves company. Tinne is security without overconfidence. Know yourself an defend your boundaries.
Tinne indicates that you have to take a defensive position or perhaps an entire defense strategy. For those of us who hate confrontation, Tinne presents a familiar dread of being cornered. We are given no choice but to fight. For instance, you may be called upon to defend a defenseless person, perhaps with words or stronger stuff. Perhaps you are trying to attain a situation or a thing you want — a graduation, severance from a toxic individual or group, the completion of a project — and you have to fight against the tide to make it happen. Tinne can pop up in situations where other people act completely indecently and you are forced into either addressing it with them or taking action to avoid them.
Seeing Tinne as all negative is oversimplifying it. Tinne is honest. It tells you that you may have a confrontation and in doing so, you will have to face your own fears of losing, being powerless, or pissing somebody off.
Tinne says drawing limits is important: nobody is entitled to you or your time except maybe the children you chose to be parents to and your companion animals. Everybody else will just have to wait.
Questions to ask when you draw Tinne:
-Recall three times of challenge in your life where you had no choice but to go on the defense.
-Is there anything/anyone who is forcing you onto the warpath right now?
Tinne ill-dignified excess: Overly defensive
Being overly defensive results from anxiety. Is your anxiety based in reality because of the actual attacks from forces around you? If you are picking fights, learn to address the types of fatigue and anxiety that cause you to do this rather than looking for someone else to blame or retreating into a hard shell. Wanting to destroy the force that’s harassing you is human; it is those who the imagery out of their heads and act out the destruction who become monsters. As long as you don’t do this, you are normal and don’t need to worry. Don’t act out of hurt. Think about what causes you pain. Strategize before taking action.
Tinne ill-dignified dearth: In need of defenses
Not knowing yourself or low self-esteem may be taking the form that you think you’re in no danger of being permanently harmed. Looking for the bright side can be helpful but it can also be profoundly naive. Giving a terrible person a second, third, and fourth chance is foolish. You already know the result. Use discipline, including forms of self-discipline such as exercise and hygiene. Put boundaries in place in order to protect yourself and your loved ones. Don’t let other people walk all over you. You have important work to do and you need time to do it.

This radiance will cause such an alchemical transformation of circumstances that the changes will seem magical, miraculous.
Yet they are only shifts of perspective and attitude that bring clarity.
The passions kindled by this fire must be harnessed and used judiciously, or they threaten to consume your hopes and dreams.
It is communication and creativity. It is a high octave 3. It has a great sense of humor, is jovial and warm, but also a bit superficial. Easily distracted, lacks staying power.

Animal Spirit Guide and/or Animal Spirit Helper
In modern times, the symbolism of the pig is quite uncertain. While this animal is respected by some for the nourishment it provides, it is a symbol of gluttony and greed to others.
Many people dislike being associated with the qualities of the pig. However, things have not always been this way.
For example, ancient Mesopotamians looked at the pig as a symbol of wealth, abundance, and plenty. Those who owned pigs knew that they’d be able to take care of all their needs.
In ancient Egypt, the pig was considered a symbol of versatility, resilience, and patience. This animal can eat just about anything.
The ancient Egyptians saw this as a lesson on the importance of being flexible. One must be ready to embrace changes as they happen.
In the West, the pig was seen as a symbol of prosperity. In all likelihood, the concept of the ‘piggy bank’ arose from this.
The meaning and symbolism of the domestic pig is closely related to that of wild boars. Wild boars are known for their tenacity, determination, and …
