Queen of Swords
You may have to make a decision today that is based on logic and principle rather than intuition.
The Queen of Swords is all about cutting through the confusion and uncertainty that separates wants from needs. It may be a matter of putting something you’ve wanted to rest — in the spirit of accepting that it’s just not good for you.
Or it could be as simple as speaking the truth, knowing that you’d only be hurting yourself otherwise.
In this deck we see a dark and somewhat sinister looking Queen. She stands before a marble throne, her loyal hand-maidens at her sides.
Her surroundings are minimal — aside from the throne we see only a gold crown that is painted on the wall. She doesn’t need to wear a crown: everyone know’s she’s Queen.
This Queen is pale, stoic and quite beautiful — perhaps dangerously beautiful. Look at the size of her sword! As swords stand for ideas, intellect and mental acuity, we can surmise that she’s highly intelligent.
She doesn’t mince words. When she speaks she chooses her words wisely and they may be biting. But she’s also fair, impartial and objective.
