7 of Swords as “Does he love me?”
Traditionally, the meaning of Seven of Swords in readings is interpreted as deceit and betrayal, especially when it comes to divination for love and relationships. But in my practice, this card means something different.
If you ask “Does he love me?” and subconsciously mean “Does he have another woman?” then Seven of Swords will answer you – yes, he is not honest with you. In this case, the meaning of the card will be that there is a secret connection and he has to think a lot and go to tricks to keep everything in balance and in secret from you.
But if you are asking about his feelings without a second thought, then this card has several meanings. Firstly, Seven of Swords as feelings means that he may worry that he will not succeed and therefore he is considering plans for how to behave further with you. And believe me, he is considering these plans for a reason. He has feelings for you, but at the same time, he has fear, insecurity, and a subconscious expectation that everything will be in vain. And that all fetters his sensual sphere. And he’s just not in a position to show feelings for you right now.

Seven of Swords as “How does he feel about me?”
Ettailla, the French occultist and tarot-researcher, described the Seven of Swords as “hope”. And for a harmonious relationship, Seven of Swords as How someone feels about you often means that he has hope for reciprocity and he is considering a plan on how to proceed further in his feelings for you. He may now be preparing for action to show feelings for you. But the card does not say what the result will be. Definitely, you are not indifferent to him and he thinks a lot about you. But at the moment he feels some difficulty in showing love for you, but he is ready to persistently go further to meet his goals in feelings for you.
7 of Swords as feelings for someone in an inharmonious relationship
If you have a rather inharmonious relationship, then the Seven of Swords as feelings for someone may mean that he feels that it is time to exit or escape from boring duties. Or it may hint that he feels that he often has to be smarter, more treacherous, and more flexible in dealing with you. And there is a feeling that all the actions taken may be in vain.
Also, the card may mean that he feels that he received something that does not rightfully belong to him in the form of you. Especially if you are not single or for other reasons. And this oppresses him and does not give him the opportunity to feel happy and naturally, make you happy.
Seven of Swords as Love Interest
The Suite of Swords does not talk about feelings. It may indicate an interest and desire to learn more, to communicate. So Seven of Swords as love interest means his desire to learn more about you, to talk to you to learn you better, etc., especially in a situation when you just met each other.
Still, there is a peculiarity of Seven of Swords, it is that he is not yet ready to show his interest in you clearly and openly. He may stealthily observe you, ponder and look for non-standard approaches to you in order to get closer to you. And he tries not to demonstrate his interest at all. He thinks a lot of you and prepares for action. But it is not yet known what he will do and how he will manifest himself.
Seven of Swords as Does he like me
7 of swords does not give a definite answer about feelings and emotions, because the suite of swords does not indicate emotions, but rather reason and reflection. But in practice, at least in my own practice, Seven of Swords as Does he like me means that he really likes you, but he would not want you to know about it.
And the reasons here may be his fear or uncertainty in your response. It may be his uncertainty because he was not ready for this and is now thinking about what happened and how to prepare for it. But there is hope in his heart, and therefore he does not just freeze but ponders plans and perhaps tricks on how to proceed in relation to you.
