Tarot Seven Air Astrological Decan Allocation
Astrological Decan Allocation assigns the Tarot card Seven of Air/Swords to the third decan of Aquarius, which is attributed to the Moon and is epitomized by its title of “Unstable Effort.” This combination of Aquarius, Venus, and Moon points to the card’s state of passivity as the individual attempts to emulate the achievements of Six of Swords, or “Earned Success,” but lacks the mental clarity to make it a reality.
The redeeming factor, however, is Netzach, whose title “Victory” may to some extent prevent total fragmentation of the thinking process, thus avoiding total disaster. The traits of this card, which signify a scattered and unfocused mind, can lead the individual to act recklessly and break confidences due to their indecisiveness. Surrounding cards indicating violent influences may take advantage of this person’s weakened state.
Seven of Air should act as a reminder to stay alert and watch for any potential deception, whether internal or external and to stay away from any manipulative people or situations. It also encourages us to seek out the truth and find our inner wisdom, trusting that it will lead us to the right path.
Knight of Water is the personality type associated with this card indicating a person who is graceful and poetic. Although indolent this is an individual who can be enthusiastic if inspired, symbolizing the effects of weather upon the surface of the ocean.
This individual is often a healer who understands the physiology of herbs and is sensitive to the needs of others.

In our attempt to understand what minor arcana cards are telling us, take into account the specific inner voice of the decan. In this case, the conjunction of major arcana cards Star and Moon, corresponding to Aquarius and Moon, is the signature of this decan and will be transmitted through the personality type represented by the Knight of Water, Fire of Water.
Let me reiterate; the Court Cards, such as the Knight, Queen, Prince, and Princess, are not necessarily gender-specific.
