Card of the Week: Seven of Swords / Ferret

Seven of Swords / Ferret from Animal Totem Tarot.

This week’s card comes from Animal Totem Tarot. The card I drew was Seven of Swords / Ferret.

The ferret on this card appears to be hoarding swords, there are seven of them that he has “collected.” The ferret is from the weasel family, and can move easily, and stealthily, through tight places. This ability teaches us that stealth can be a form of protection, and also can be part of play. There may be a need to keep things hidden at times. But there is a difference from doing it to benefit ourselves, or to harm others.

This week, there may be a reason to hide the truth. Are you manifesting a new project, and in order for it to grow you need to keep the energy around it protected? Or, have you kept a secret hidden for too long now that it may not be harmless anymore?

Message from Ferret:

“We all have a sneaky side. It is a necessary skill for our survival. Whether you have to be the one who is sneaky, or be the one able to spot others in their sly ways, the art of deception is not to be taken for granted. Smoke, mirrors, and sleight of hand all have their place; the real trick is knowing when and where to use them.”
