Queen of Swords Meaning
When drawing tarot cards, usually they are put in a vertical setting, spread on a timeline of the past, present, and future. In this kind of drawings, the Queen of Swords may come up straight, as well as reversed. Some psychic readers do like to read reversed tarot cards. Some don’t. Either way, the other tarot cards in the drawing will make up for the way the psychic readers conduct their readings because a Tarot Card deck connects to the energy of the psychic reader, so it ‘talks’ to them.
Merging the qualities of “Queen” and the qualities of the “Swords Suit,” the Queen of Swords card would represent:
|Being honest, avoiding lies||Daring to face the ugly truth|
|Being upfront with everyone||Playing by the rules|
|Sizing up a situation quickly||Intuitively understanding the hidden motives|
|Being difficult to trick or fool||Being direct and frank in all dealings|
|Knowing how to be candid when necessary||Being straightforward and witty|
|Having a good sense of humor||Able to laugh at yourself too, not taking things too seriously|
|Attitude of having seen and done it all||Being true to yourself and having realistic expectations|
In a reverse position, the Queen of Swords would mean precisely the opposite of its core qualities, bringing in the drawing:
|Being overly critical||Not being able to make a decision, cut things off|
|Spreading malicious gossip||Lacking empathy|
|Lacking grace||Representing trauma, toxic behavior|
|Not learning from past experiences or mistakes||Choosing to be harsh, bitter, vindictive|
|Having poor communication||Being unforgiving and revengeful|
There are also spreads where the tarot cards pulled are placed on vertical as well as horizontal positions. If the Queen of Swords would sit in a horizontal position, it advises you may need to give yourself or someone else more time.
This may be the case when you have been thinking and considering to cut someone off of your life or fire someone at work. Maybe you have noticed behavior that doesn’t seem to change, or you have gotten one red flag, and you are ready to cut things off. The downside is that you may be seeing someone through past experiences, and you know you will not tolerate the same toxic behaviors anymore.
The thing is that you have not given yourself or the other person enough time to show their true colors, intentions, or learn their pattern. Don’t make a rushed decision unless you are sure of what you want.

Queen of Swords – Timing
When will something happen answer?
If it is a question that involves around the timing of an event and you pull the Queen of Swords, this would mean that whatever you desire or wonder about will manifest, but it will take time, as an Air element indicates movement, and a swift one.
How soon is that, it would be kind of complicated because it could mean Wintertime, or that of a Zodiac Sign season Gemini, Libra or Aquarius.
The way you want to interpret this is keeping in mind that whatever you are asking about is coming, though it could happen in a breeze or not stand for long.
With the Swords Suit, the best way to go around figuring out the time, would always be to think at least one later, and it would go something like this: If it is already Winter, your best bet would be next month or around Aquarius season.
