Queen of Swords

by Melvis

Card Meaning
Artistic Media
Artist's Bio


A queen shows both sides of her nature: dark and remote, reacting first with decisive action; bright and distinct, illuminating with words. The background shows the chaos that goes on around her. Her red shadow glows behind her.


The position of queen is sometimes described as the "Water" court of a suit, so in the case of the Queen of Swords she represents the "Water of Air". The sword is the tool of her suit, while the pen is the tool of her soul. A single tear represents her compassion, however remote. The drop of ink from the pen represents her willingness to share and promote knowledge.

Card Meaning

Balancing the sharpness of your words with the clarity of your compassion can be tricky. Dulling your message benefits no one, and cutting people to the bone unnecessarily diffuses your message. Emphasize your message, yes, but accompany that message with a genuine concern for its receiver.

Artistic Media

Created completely with Paint Shop Pro software.

Artist's Bio
