Queen of Swords, Evolutionary Tarot


Theme: evolution in consciousness

Some words regarding this Queen:

"The Queen of Swords' head is crowned with butterflies, symbols of transformation. It reaches above the back of her throne, signifying her earthly position, and the receding storm clouds, the drama and clamor of the world. The Queen is focused on what's truly important, the clear blue sky above her in the Queen of Swords tarot card. The bird soaring in these heights represents spiritual purity and her ideals. There is room for nothing else in her life." (buildingbeautifulsouls.com)

"The Queen of Swords is an archetype of an older, wiser feminine intellect. She could be thought of as the most masculine of the all the queens, and may come off as quite stern and emotionless. This card represents the importance of making judgements without relying on emotion alone. ... Above all, truth is important to her, so she feels no need to soften her comments, thoughts, or opinions. She also expects the same frankness from other people, so this means that you need to be clear with everything that is being said, even if it may hurt." (labyrinthos.co)

"Her personality is a combination of the positive air energy of the Swords suit and the inward focus of a Queen. The Queen of Swords admires honesty, is committed to truth, and tells you exactly as it is. She has no interest in lies or tricks and has a marked lack of pretense. She fully understands the good and the bad of the world and is not easy to fool. She can easily analyze a situation, and she can identify a tricky one coming at her. Her observations are straightforward and candid and not meant to be hurtful. Another of the traits of the Queen of Swords is a sense of humor along with witty comebacks." (astrology.com)
