Queen of Swords Card Description
The Queen of Swords sits on an ornate throne in the sky, looking off into the distance. The double-edged sword in one hand is pointed toward the sky, while her other hand is extended out, offering her support and advice.
From her place in heaven, she sees all and can offer the knowledge you need to move past your pain or hurt. She is open to the opinions of others and wishes to offer a shoulder to all who need it.
In the background, there are accumulated clouds — just like in the other court cards of the Swords — expressing the continuous nature of change.
Queen of Swords Meaning
The Queen of Swords in the upright position is a good omen. This card signifies a positive woman that will support you through the hard times in your life. She is patient and understanding and will help you to see the positive things in your life. Her positive energy is not a result of a life free of trouble.
The Queen has experienced pain and loss and will use this wisdom to see you through your own difficult times. If you are experiencing negativity or loss in your life, get ready for a supportive female to make her way into your life and to uplift you to your highest potential.
Money and Career Meaning
In a career reading, the Queen of Swords indicates that you may receive advice or guidance from an older female in your workplace. This person will be knowledgeable, supportive, and will express her desire to see you succeed. Her professional nature will set a positive example for you in your career, and you would do well to follow that example.
If you get the opportunity to mentor with someone like this, the Queen of Swords encourages you to jump on the opportunity and soak off all the information you can.
When it comes to financial endeavors, you may cross paths with a woman that provides you with money and investment advice. She encourages you to take her ideas and follow them closely. You will not be led astray, and your attention and application of her suggestions will likely lead to financial success for you now and in the future.
Love and Relationships Meaning
In love and relationships, the Queen of Swords might indicate that you are in a relationship with someone that embodies the attitudes and values above. She is fiercely loyal and supports you without hesitation or fear of the future.
Her professional nature may discourage her from public displays of affection, but she is passionate and loving all the same. She is sure to support and help guide you on any endeavor that you choose.
If the Queen represents a lover, this person is an authentic spirit and a great partner to have in your corner. She assures you that your partner is genuine and wants to see you succeed. If you keep this person close, you will have all the joys in life and love.
If you are single, this card in your reading might signify that you will meet someone that embodies the Queen of Swords. She won’t necessarily be your lover, but she could guide you to him/her. If you do cross paths with this person, keep your heart open and accept her into your life. The support and advice that you seek are sure to come when you choose to engage in a relationship with this person.
This card can also mean that you need to hold out for someone that will support you emotionally in your relationship. You don’t need to waste your time on people that don’t lift you and make you better. The Queen of Swords reassures you of your self-sufficiency and ability to go this alone.
Health and Spirituality Meaning
The Queen of Swords in a health context embodies any repressed emotions that you may be feeling deep within. You would do well to seek out the help and support you need to release these emotions so that you can move on.
When you trust in the strong female to guide you down your path, you will be well on your way to freedom from what ails you. This might be a family member, therapist, doctor, or another mentor.
Queen of Swords Reversed
The Queen of Swords reversed indicates an older female whose goal is to wreak havoc in your life. She will be careless, unsupportive, and possibly even abusive at times.
This person is selfish and is not interested in the benefit of anyone but herself. She allows her past struggles to make her bitter and the words she speaks are designed to hurt and disable those around her.
The Queen of Swords reversed in a reading urges you to proceed with caution in relationships with an older woman who might not have your best interest at heart. Do you know who this person might be? If you take the time to look deeper and explore her true intentions, you can save yourself a great deal of drama.
Flipped upside down, the Queen can also be an indication that you’re depending too much on the opinion and judgment of others. As a result, you hesitate to make decisions because this might disappoint others and can affect your relationships. However, in order to be successful, you need to be more assertive and confident. By doing so, you will only earn more respect from others.
Queen of Swords: Yes or No
The Queen of Swords presents herself to help you to heal from your past with support and guidance. She is reliable and knowledgeable, but she encourages you to decide on anything in your path ultimately.
For this reason, the only answer to your yes or no question she can offer is maybe. Instead of depending solely on the tarot, take some time to explore your inner feelings. You already know what is right for you.
