The number seven is known for its spiritual merits in numerology.

In most cases, it serves as a gateway towards accessing one’s intuition and intangible realities like fantasies and desires. Now, as many of us know, Sometimes our intuition may not be 100% correct. Or, we may let our fantasies guide us towards making impulsive or wrong decisions.

It could mean that we are unable to express our deepest sentiments, which means that they will be repressed within ourselves and long to be seen.
