Queen of Swords Tarot Card Meaning

Written and illustrated by Grace Duong

The traditional Rider Waite depiction of the Queen of Swords card features the regal and stern queen sitting side profile to the viewer. One arm is outstretched as in welcoming someone, or communicating an idea. The other holds a sword upright, upholding the truth at all costs, symbolizing her ability to cut through illusions and get to the truth. Her throne is carved with an angel, two crescent moons, and a butterfly. Clouds swirl in the background amongst a landscape with wind blowing through the trees. The background may include windy and turbulent skies, suggesting the mental clarity and sharp intellect associated with the Queen of Swords. The Queen of Swords is associated with qualities such as intellect, independence, truth-seeking, and direct communication. She is often seen as a figure who values clear communication, rational thinking, and the pursuit of truth, even if it means facing difficult realities.

In the Mystic Monday’s Tarot deck, the Queen of Swords card is depicted as a mature woman wearing a dress that looks like armor. She is holding a sword that is facing downwards. She has her arm and hand raised up, placing boundaries. She is in a defensive stance. There are two pyramids in the background. There is light emitting from the center on the top and bottom of the card.

General Queen of Swords Card Upright Meaning

Brains over beauty, the Queen of Swords values intellect above all else. She has no problem telling it like it is, with class and sass. She is direct, witty, honest, and even blunt. Logic rules the land, with the facts being the fairest of them all. She is able to use her discernment and can see past hidden motives easily. She asks that you cut through the noise and gather information that will point you to a clear-cut solution. Detach yourself from your emotions so that you can use your critical eye with impartiality and clarity. The Queen of Swords likes to get straight to the point and uses tact to get there, preferring to connect on an intellectual level. Sensitive souls may receive her bluntness as cold and dub her the “Ice Queen.” It’s not that she doesn’t care, she just wants to be fair.

General Queen of Swords Reversed Meaning

Objective thinking is needed here! Emotions cloud your thought process and paint your mind with colors that don’t necessarily add to the painting. There is a fine balance between your feelings and facts. Time to regroup and look at the whole picture. Partake in your logic to look at the situation from all angles with straightforward transparency and honesty. On the other end of the spectrum, being too cold and forgetting compassion are equally as damaging! Lashing out with judgmental, close-minded thinking can scare those who are trying to help you. People may find you abrasive and think that it is difficult to be around you. Being highly critical in tough situations is important, however, back it up with logic and facts to know if you’ve made the right decision.
