Artist’s Interpretation & Card Meaning
“The Queen of Swords sits on a stone throne. The blue coloring of the card suggests a cold, stoic character – almost detached. She is not without emotion; rather she blends emotion with mentality and com passionate and understanding in her judgment of others. This is depicted by the sky meeting the sea. The clouds on the horizon of a clear sky symbolize the ability to keep her head above confusion. The bird flying high in the sky represents the high ideals of the Queen, her desire for freedom and the need for a break from obligations. Her jewel-adorned crown carries a double-edged sword pointing to the sky, symbolic of her razor-sharp mind. The swordfish leaping out of the sea relates to the Queen’s relationship with others. She is well-respected, authoritative and independent.”
A dark-haired mermaid sits on a stone throne; an upright sword adorns her crown. A swordfish jumps out of the water to greet her, her only companion. The sky is clear, apart from a couple of wispy clouds, above which a bird soars, symbolizing her purity of intent, and her focus on matters of the mind over matters of the heart. She is distant, but not cold. A butterfly floats close to the mermaid, she reaches her hand towards it, offering her wisdom to it, and the swordfish with her.
The Queen of Swords represents the need to experience emotions but not let them affect decisions or judgment. She roots out all the facts of a situation in order to best decide a course of action, and she is not easily fooled.
