Letters From Thoth & The New Era Elements
7 of Swords (Thoth)
Just looking at the card you can see the somewhat fractured background on top of which are 6 small swords with planet symbols on the hilts and one kind of broken middle sword with the Sun. This is like a planetary battle in our heads - where we just have too much going on and are getting confused and upset. I like what Crowley says, "It is like a rheumatic boxer trying to come back after being out of the ring for years." Maybe an uphill battle?
7 of Air (NEE)
As Gollum would say, this one is tricksy - but not hobbitses ;)
The art shows a cuckoo chick sitting in an adopted nest being fed by mom, not its mom. The parents are tricked into feeding a strangers bird and not their own chicks. This reminds us that illusions can get in the way of rational thinking and we can be deceived if we aren't careful.
On a day like this we need to remember things go pear shaped and it's best not to fight against it but to keep a sense of humor and know it won't last. Take things one at a time and try not to get frazzled - try to keep your thoughts clear so you can see what is really the issue and what may be just an illusion.
