The Strong-Willed and Direct Queen Of Swords

Queen of Swords

The Strong Willed Queen Of Swords

Whenever I see the Queen of Swords come up in a reading, regardless of whether it is who I am reading for or a female energy that is involved, I know we are dealing with a strong willed, strong minded tough cookie. Now whether she uses that strength to be self-contained in relationships, depends on how she feels about herself in general.

The Queen of Swords represents the strong back bone of a mature intellect which can sometimes be lacking in compassionate emotion. She has the ability to reason out and discern situations and relationships but almost from a watcher’s point of view without the influence of emotion or sentimentality. She usually exhibits an energy of control using her intellect to know how, what, why, where, when and who of everything to help her make sense of her environment and to better understand others. She always goes to her intellect first before she goes to her emotions in making any life decisions or relating to her relationships.

She has the consummate ability to tell it like it is, being quick on her feet intellectually, perceptive and usually intuitive. She can cut through all the bullshit of a situation and get straight to the point of what needs to be addressed. The downside of dealing with a Queen of Swords, is her directness sometimes is misinterpreted as being judgmental, cold and without compassion. She expects that directness with everyone that she deals with.

In the reverse position, the Queen of Swords can be emotionally cold and bitchy without regards to someone else’s feelings. The need to be right and be in control of a relationship or situation is always at the top of her list in dealing with most everything in her life. This usually stems from fear of being hurt and uses her aloofness as a defense weapon. It is a good life challenge when you have her as a friend, family member or partner to help you learn to put your foot down and stand your ground.

In general, the Queen of Swords indicates that you have a pretty good grasp of what works for you and what doesn’t. You usually know what it is you want and need and are willing to go after it. It is learning how to not be so abrasive and stepping on other people’s boundaries as you are going after what you want is your life. Be mindful of other people’s boundaries as you are doing so.

In the Career sector, it is usually suggested to not over-react with situations at work when it seems that you have been overlooked or disregarded. Now is not the time to make your point if you feel you have been disrespected. Think things out first before you speak. If looking for work, it usually represents seeking out a strong female to help get you what you are looking for.

With Love and romance area, it is a caution to not be too aggressive or impulsive when it comes to relationships. With a strong personality, it is easy to push away the very people we want to draw in because of a forceful approach or trying to control a relationship without regards to your partner’s needs and desires in fear they may be different than yours.

Where Money is concerned, the Queen of Swords usually indicates that a strong woman is about to play an important role in your financial life. She can show up as a mentor, boss, friend or family member. Stay alert and open to what she has to say and offer.

Where Health is being addressed, either for you or someone close to you, she is suggesting not to repress your emotional feelings about the situation as it will impact your body negatively. Keep an eye on your stress level about a health situation and do everything possible to address it in a way that the Queen of Swords is best at, with an intellectual approach. Giving you a heads up not to jump to conclusions or make rash decisions about your health or someone else’s. Stay in the moment.

When Spirituality comes up as the subject matter, The Queen of Swords is showing you to be more open with your deep emotions, for they are a gateway to opening up your spiritual life. Tune into what you are really thinking, feeling and why. Your higher self has a hard time reaching you if you are constantly listening to the mind chatter and not taking moments to just be in the silence of meditation, nature or inspirational music. Be open to messages from spirit in your everyday arena, in whatever from they may show up as.

Susan Z’s Verdict

Being a strong woman in a male dominated society is not an easy path as we have seen in the news lately. But if you learn to balance your feminine kindness and compassion with a backbone of integrity and self-assuredness, there is nothing you cannot accomplish.
