The queen of swords is not afraid to speak her mind. This is her true power. It is also her weakness. It is her power in that when something needs to be said, when something needs to be communicated, no matter how blunt, painful, or simply hard to say it is, it is true power to be able to be the one to come out and say it with conviction and authority.
Maybe the truth will make you unpopular. Perhaps what needs saying will be met with resistance by those who are not ready or willing to hear it. Be that as it may, it still needs saying, so somebody needs to say it.
It is her weakness in that sometimes she does not consider carefully the best way to say it. “Bedside manners” as we say of doctors. Perhaps a queen of swords personality may not be as delicate or soft with her words as those for whom she has a message may like her to be. Whatever the case may be, the queen of swords is adept at saying what needs to be said.
The queen of swords may come across as cold, maybe even heartless, but this is not necessarily the truth of who she is. She is not so concerned with appearances as others may be. She is not trying to be liked or win any popularity contests. She is concerned with getting to the heart of whatever the matter may be.
There are times when this is a tremendous gift, especially when dealing with a difficult circumstance. When things are tough, somebody has to come forward and be a spokesperson. This person, becoming the public figure for the situation will have to bear the brunt of the criticism of the masses for it. A true queen of swords can take it. They have what it takes to toughen up and be thick skinned enough to not take criticism personally.
Sometimes though, they must adapt. They must employ empathy and become what people need them to be. Not every situation calls for toughness. Sometimes it is necessary to feel what the others are feeling and present the truth to them in a way that they are easily able to receive it. This may be a challenge for the queen of swords, but those who are able to master it, often live the best of both worlds- both the world of absolute truth, and the world of compassion and empathy for others.
When the queen of swords comes up for you in a reading, give thought to how you present difficult information to others. Do you present in a way that they will receive it in an appreciative way? Ask yourself also, how do you receive difficult news? Do you accept it with dignity, or do you “shoot the messenger?” Be mindful of such things. It is what it means to possess a queen of swords personality.
