Lady’s Slipper is a nervine and a tonic. It is to be used for pain, all nervous afflictions, hysteria and the easing of pre-menstrual syndrome or tension.

The Queen of Swords indicates ‘woman’, negative aspects, passivity, response and emotion.

The Queen of Swords represents an intelligent and strong-willed woman who may be quite ambitious. Often a widow or divorcee or someone who chooses to live alone, the Queen of Swords is an independent and forthright woman. 

The Queen of Swords is one who is quick-witted and strong-minded and has a strong personality. She is one who has gained much spiritual knowledge and wisdom through past adversity.

Despite her great inner-strength and independence, the Queen of Swords has a degree of loneliness and a need for companionship about her. Her countenance is severe and chastened, as though she is familiar with sorrow. She can at times give no indication of empathy, mercy or compassion. She has an air of sadness, but also of keen perception. 

The Queen of Swords indicates a mature woman with a quick wit and who appears to be self-sufficient, powerful and wise. 
She is one who gives the right advice and assistance when needed. She makes for a powerful ally, particularly in times of adversity.

The Queen of Swords tells of enduring struggles throughout one’s life, which leads to spiritual depth.

The Queen of Swords is depicted as a woman who has the capacity to think objectively, in an analytical, factual way.  She comes across as quite the perfectionist -  but at times can act quite coldly and critically. This lady is most unpredictable and clever.

Working on the positive side, the Queen of Swords is  woman who has unwavering faith in her goals. The negative aspect of this is that her focus can detract her attention from other aspects of her life, leading to her own detriment.

The Queen of Swords is imminently capable of upholding executive positions, and her appearance and mannerisms often suggest wealth and prosperity.

The Queen of Swords sits with the hilt of her Sword (or weapon) resting upon the arm of her throne, depicting a position of authority.

The Queen of Swords relates to the number 52 / 7, and tells of independence, intuitive skills and the need for solitude.  The number 52 / 7 represents the tearing down of the old to re-build the new, and suggests inner-struggles or inner-conflict.

Appearing in a reading, the Queen of Swords suggests that you may be involved with a woman who has experienced sorry and has become dispassionate, but quick-witted as a result. This woman can act quickly and severely.

When confronted with the Queen of Swords, you are asked to attempt to help the sorrowful woman come to terms with her misery. You can highlight the positives and the potential joy that the future holds. It is important, however, to acknowledge and respect the pain and sorry that this woman has experienced.

The Queen of Swords appearing in a reading may be implying that either yourself or someone, close may be finding it difficult to keep up with the demands of daily life.

The Queen of Swords may be foretelling of a situation where intuition, keen perceptions and wise counsel will be needed to overcome an uncomfortable or awkward situation.

When the Queen of Swords is an indication that there may be someone who will give you wise counsel. This person is able to view the dilemma or issue from a higher perspective and see all from different angles. This person has spiritual depth and will not mince words when giving advice.

With any Two QUEENS of any suit:
The Queen of Swords appearing in a spread with two Queens of any suit is an indication of a celebration, a meeting or gathering of women.

With many other COURT Cards:
When the Queen of Swords appears in a reading with many other Court Cards, it is indicating that many people are involved in a situation.

With many other SWORDS cards:
The Queen of Swords, when it appears in a spread with many other Swords, it may be indicating that there are problems to do with finances and money matters.

2 Queens in a spread may be indicating short-lived trouble with a female friend.

Three Queens in a reading indicates that you may participate in idle gossip.

Four Queens appearing in a reading may be indicating that gossip and/or slander, of which you may be the victim.


Malice, bigotry, prudery, deceit.

Appearing in a reading reversed, the Queen of Swords indicates that a woman has become embittered as a result of a sorrowful experience. This woman has a sharp tongue and can cause distress to others by making stinging and often sarcastic remarks and comments. She is not someone you would wish to cross swords with.

A very cold and domineering woman is represented by the Queen of Swords. Her hard exterior conceals an inner loneliness, and she uses her coldness as a form of self-defence.

The Queen of Swords appearing reversed tells of one who is quite fixed in her own ways, is tolerant of others and is prone to malicious gossip. The Queen of Swords reversed may be a warning not to confide in someone at this time, as they may gossip about you and your plight. It is unwise to confide in this lady as she can be quite deceitful.

The reversed Queen of Swords may come across as being quite intolerant, narrow-minded and obstinate. She may find it difficult to see and accept someone else’s point of view.

When the Queen of Swords appears in a spread reversed, it is a warning to keep your views and opinions to yourself rather than confiding in another  -  otherwise you will suffer from gossip and rumour-mongering.

Reversed, the Queen of Swords tells of a situation where you may be dealing with an insincere person or situation. Do not make any moves at this time as there are mis-truths, deceptions and/or upset plans. Remain aware of your own ideas and beliefs and do not confide in a woman who ‘pretends’ to be your ally and confidante  -  she is not.
