Learn the meaning of the Queen of Swords Tarot card
The Queen of Swords depicts a woman sitting on a massive throne in her image. It is also the penultimate card in the Court of Swords, so its significance in Tarot is particularly important. This is because the Queen of Swords represents a kind of support for the King, who is represented by the next card, the King of Swords. Her left hand is raised as if to point the way or a course of action. The right hand on the Queen of Swords is holding a sword with the blade pointing upward. Significantly, the throne on which the Queen of Swords sits is also placed on a sort of hill, indicating that her role is elevated above earthly affairs. In the Queen of Swords, we also see clouds swirling around the figure and throne, and trees in the distance. However, the card itself is much more peaceful in its symbolism than the others in the court represented by Swords. The Queen of Swords very often refers to a woman of high position and middle age, who may resemble in appearance the figure seen in the card. The card is also a symbol of mastery of the mind over emotions, order, and power over others.

This person is always sticking to established rules, and also feels good about maintaining an established order. The upright Queen of Swords can also be strict and largely emotionless, which also allows her to make good decisions and resolve difficult issues.

The Queen of Swords in an upright position will very often point to a woman in a man's life who is similar to him in behavior or appearance. The card in an upright position describes a person who is self-confident, open-minded, but also fair-minded, and it is these qualities that we should look for in a relationship. It may therefore speak of a completely new relationship with someone represented by the upright Queen of Swords, or it may symbolize the position you hold in an ongoing relationship. The Queen of Swords in the upright position will therefore always be someone you can rely on in difficult times, and if she is already involved in your emotional relationship then she will be a loving and faithful partner. Unfortunately, the upright Queen of Swords is a woman whose strongest point is reason rather than the emotional realm. Because of this, it is very difficult to win her heart, and this can make her feel lonely at times. In relationships, the Queen of Swords in an upright position heralds a time of seeking one's independence, or setting new boundaries for it. This card is a very good sign for single women, as it describes a moment in your life when you will be able to choose among many partners.

The reversed Queen of Swords can indicate a person who is completely closed off emotionally and sexually to other people. This is influenced by her painful experiences, which may make her unable to find forgiveness for the world around her. The Queen of Swords in a reversed position is a cruel and harsh character who is willing to use you for her own ends and will not countenance your opinion. She can also stand in your way, preventing you from making decisions for yourself, expressing your thoughts, or acting independently. The Queen of Swords reversed is also a mischievous and stubborn person who may sow intrigue around the questioned issue. The card also symbolizes a problem with exercising judgment and making sound decisions. The Queen of Swords in a reversed position also indicates a lack of ability to learn from experience. The card may also indicate someone who often uses lies, and whose general behavior is repulsive to others. On the other hand, the card may indicate that you are currently in a situation where someone else is exerting control over you.
In the reversed position, the Queen of Swords is the worse sign for relationship issues, as it describes a person who definitely does not do well in the emotional field. The reversed Queen of Swords can also be harsh, spiteful and lacking in any empathy towards others. The Queen of Swords reversed is very often a single woman who is unable to reconcile her independence with building a mature relationship. This may be due to her past experiences in this area, including disappointment or failed relationships. In some situations, the card may also speak of a woman who is afraid to end a current relationship. However, more often than not, the reversed Queen of Swords will be a negative figure in relationships, who tries to control her partner with lies and manipulation. The Queen of Swords in reversed position may also try to influence your relationship, and the game she is playing towards you may cause serious problems in the relationship.
