The Queen of Swords is like the woman at the party who is elegant, witty, gracious, and more than capable of seeing through people’s facades. If you ask her a question, she will not mince words. She is honest and authentic, so, if you’re not ready to hear the truth, don’t ask her opinion.
As her title suggests, she carries a sword because she is the truth slayer. Her sword symbolizes mental clarity, which gives her the ability to cut through the noise and get to the truth. She is also adept at creating boundaries, without pushing anyone away. She knows that she can take care of herself and this strength only adds to her beauty.
This court card suggests someone who is able to discern false from truth in a manner that is diplomatic and discerning. Just because we can tell when someone is not being honest, doesn’t mean we have to start an argument with them. The Queen of Swords demonstrates that you can both maintain a healthy boundary and practice honesty while still being kind.
