Queen of Swords
The Queen of Swords represents unbiased opinions, direct communication and independence. Savvy and sophisticated, the Queen of Swords stands for honesty before anything else. She has no time for lies and cover-ups. In relationships, she is forthright and direct preferring to be upfront about everything even if the truth is painful. Like you, she does seek love but can sometimes prefer a meeting of the minds rather than a meeting of the bodies. This card symbolizes your preference to deal with issues there and then and when you feel a relationship is not working out, rather than beat around the bush for weeks, you sever the relationship.
Queen of Swords (Reversed)
In the depiction of this card we see the Queen with hand out raised as if beckoning someone to her. She is either afraid to speak about her feelings or does not know how. She needs to get things off her chest but it all gets stuck in her throat and is swallowed back down. Like many of us, she may feel her opinions don’t count or that she may sound silly. This Queen of Swords Reversed symbolizes how we seek friendships and love but we do not really understand what they mean. She represents confusion when we accept no responsibility in relationships and will blame our partner for everything that goes wrong.
