Queen of Swords

The Queen of Swords represents a woman who is very independent and doesn't tolerate being told what to do or how to do it. She's strict and proud and she doesn't swallow insults of any type. Her mind works fast and she immediately recognizes dangers and pitfalls. This woman also has a very sharp tongue. She's fair, objective, and realistic but somewhat distant or cold. On the illustration of the card we can see her reign with her sword raised while her other hand is open to the sky. This posture symbolizes that the woman is motivated by her beliefs and ideals and not by her feelings.
