Today's Message From the Tarot - Queen of Swords
In this picture we see a queen in profile, looking off and beckoning to someone who we can't see. She is holding her sword upright and in front of her. The sky is blue, the landscape green and fertile. Her throne seems cold and hard, however, and the queen is not the lovey dovey ooey gooey Queens we see on other cards.
Swords traditionally have to do with words, communications, and of course, sometimes conflict. However, in this card, we do not sense any conflict at hand, based upon the serenity of the landscape and colorful sky laced with fluffy, cottonball clouds. This woman is a woman who is master of her own domain. She is a woman who is comfortable in her own skin, but maybe just a tad in touch with her masculine side. You will not find this woman warm and cuddly, petting kitties and kissing frogs. She is a woman who is a force to be reckoned with, not afraid to express her opinion or pass judgement. Her judgements, however, are fairly thought through and carried out.
You may run into this card when you are having some issues with communications, letting you know that it is time to speak up. Perhaps you are doing some sort of writing or speaking, and this Queen is telling you that your words will be well received and will cut to the heart of the issues with which you are confronting.
If you are having some issues of some kind with communications, perhaps it might be a good idea to meditate with this card in your hand, asking for guidance as to the best possible words to come forth that might bless the most people and do the most good.
If you draw this card in conjunction with another card or in the midst of a spread, look at the card next to this one and pay attention to what she is looking at. What card shows up next to this one? This may show you what areas in your life perhaps you need to communicate more clearly and look at with fair judgement and objectivity.
