Queen of Swords Tarot Card Description
When the Queen of Swords appears in a reading, she denotes an intelligent woman over 35 years of age, who may be cold but very professional and smart. She can be sarcastic and witty at the same time, bitter and hurt in some broken relationship from the past while maintaining a stony facade about it. She is independent, honest and shrewd and also empathetic and supportive at the same time.
In the Rider Waite deck, the card shows a queen sitting on an ornate throne looking off into a distance. She is wearing a white gown (symbolizing purity) with red tassels on her sleeves (symbolizing passion). Her head is above the clouds. The clouds depict mental challenges and she seems to have risen above these challenges. On one hand, she holds a double-edged sword pointing toward the sky (symbolizing clarity), while the other hand is extended out, offering her support and advice. The throne has images of a winged child (symbolizing blessings), a pair of the moon (symbolizing intuition) and butterflies (symbolizing transformation).
Upright Queen of Swords Card Prediction for Career
When the Queen of Swords comes in a career spread as a boss or colleague, this intelligent woman has a powerful mind of her own. She will not encourage risk-taking in any project and would prefer to plan things out carefully.
On the darker side, if her intelligence is not used correctly she can use it as a weapon. And if she is bored or not being challenged enough, she can be stubborn with her ideas. She lacks spontaneity as she likes to go into every detail before taking any action. She can access situations quickly and so before you approach her with any written document, make sure every 'I’ is dotted and every t’ crossed.
The card as a trait indicates that you should become more focused and organized in your work. Do not allow your mind to play games with you. Plan things well before you go ahead with the execution.

Being emotionally involved in a certain situation or issue may be distorting your perception of the situation at hand.

Look at the situation more objectively, as it will give you a better picture and help you evaluate what you need to do next.
When reversed, the Queen of Swords meaning explains how a Libra female would behave when she gets unbalanced. You will struggle to manage harmony and balance in your life without success, while you continue with your unresolved suffering.
