Queen of Swords


Queen of SwordsThe Queen of Swords is a woman over the age of 35, possibly with an abundance of air signs (Gemini, Libra, or Aquarius) in her chart. This could also be a man in touch with his feminine side.

Swords represent the element of air, and the intellect. She is a brilliant and intellectual woman, who doesn’t suffer fools lightly. She might be a writer, scientist, or corporate executive. Her success is her own, and she might come across as prickly. Traditionally she was seen as a widow, divorcee, or spinster.

You know where you stand with this woman. She is honest and frank. She might watch you for a while before she forms her opinion. She is professional in all business dealings. Her ability to cut to the heart of all situations, makes her a good troubleshooter and choice for heading a project. She is a good communicator and demands the same from those in relationship with her.

If you are strong, honest, and willing to communicate, this woman can be a good ally. If you pick a fight with her, be aware that she has already considered each side of the argument and is not afraid to tell you, in detail, how flawed your logic is.
