Full Meaning

The Queen of Swords is often represented by a Queen holding a sword in an upright position which indicates clarity of thought. This card represents a lady who has a deep understanding of things. She can 'walk the walk' and 'talk the talk' and is more than comfortable with her peers. She can talk knowledgeably with anyone, even the most intelligent among us. She is a sponge that soaks up information and can easily retell it in an easy to understand way. She would probably fare well in a consultancy role or maybe a teaching career. She has a keen eye for detail, can skillfully negotiate situations to her advantage and has an inner wisdom but she also she stands out in the crowd. When the Queen of Swords appears in a spread she can indicate a need to be steadfast in any approaches to situations. In order to ensure a clear perspective on things think about your feelings and emotions and exactly what it is that you want. In terms of relationships a person may be having problems committing themselves as it is possible that what they have endured in the past may be holding them back in the present.

Traditional Symbolism

Her right hand raises the weapon vertically and the hilt rests on an arm of her royal chair the left hand is extended, the arm raised her countenance is severe but chastened; it suggests familiarity with sorrow. It does not represent mercy, and, her sword notwithstanding, she is scarcely a symbol of power.
