Queen of Swords

The Queen refers to you, or someone who strongly influences your life in the situation in question, but does not have to be female. She holds the sword of truth upright. She has faced reality, and while she has endured many sorrows, she has learned to accept the truth. The butterfly on her crown is a symbol of her emergence from a chrysalis: she transforms into the self-assured Queen depicted on the card. The tassel dangling from her wrist is like a freshly severed rope, which signifies her release from the bonds of confusion, doubt, and illusion. Use her as your example: see clearly, and think freely.
