Advanced tarot interpretation

(Applies to the upright position)

The Symbolism in the "Queen of Swords" Tarot Card:

The Queen's throne is also on a hilltop, but with a small stream running behind her. She beckons her supplicants with one hand, while holding her sword in a non-threatening pose in the other. Symbols of air adorn her throne more lavishly than her spouse's - cherubs and butterflies come together to make a pillowy seat for this strong woman. Clouds are her mantle, and butterflies adorn her crown.

The Meaning of the "Queen of Swords" Tarot Card:

Protector of her realm, a woman of advanced years that is either a widow or going through the change of life. There are lots of intellectual stimuli right now in the person's life, but they should make sure to take only that from it which is useful in their lives. A person of many facets, perhaps too many for their own good. Sterility and separation - the Queen of Swords represents hard choices that need to be made, and made soon.
