The Artist's Concept

I enjoyed my first card so much that when Solandia asked someone to make this one in 2 days I volunteered.

In my card, an Egyptian Queen holds her sword pointing down. The sword is her Will, which she keeps down inside herself, but within reach in case she feels need to exert it. She stands in an airy desert to represent the element of air, which is associated with the swords suit. In the backgroud stands the pillars of Wisdom and Knowledge, the pillars of the Queen's being, representing the mental aspects of the sword suit.

Card Meaning

The Queen of Swords is a shrewd woman, who holds back her opinion until she knows exactly what she wants to say, then she makes her opinion perfectly clear. She is very intelligent and professional. Don't bother lying to her, she'll see right through it.

Reversed: a woman who is cold and distant. She often makes cutting remarks that hurt others badly, but she doesn't even realize she is doing it. Can be lying and manipulative, or critical of those who don't live up to her expectations.

Card Media

Digital collage, but I drew the sword.
