Queen of Swords - Tarot by jasmoonbutterfly
Upright: Quick thinker, organised, perceptive, independent
Reversed: Overly-emotional, bitchy, cold-hearted
The Queen of Swords represents the sternness of a mature intellect which is devoid of emotion. In mythology, the feminine is associated with emotion, yet in this card, the woman is stern and composed, and without much feeling. This card, therefore, represents the intellect’s ability to judge and discern impartially, without the influence of emotion or sentimentality. She likes to know the how, what, why, where, when and who of everything to help her make sense of her environment and to better understand others. It is not that she does not care about others but she connects to other people through an intellectual understanding rather than an emotional understanding.
