QUEEN OF SWORDS
In the zodiac, the Queen of Swords rules from 21 degrees Virgo to 20 degrees Libra. This is Water of Air, which is not only power of transmission but elastic as well.
In this card we see the Queen of Swords as a kind of Golden Kali, with Her sharp sword of wit in one hand and the severed head of a adult male in the other, Yet the innocence of a child on top of her stellar- crystal clear mind, where ideas are clear and concise.The Queen of Swords represents the Liberated Mind with clear perception of idea.
The Astral realm (Yetzirah, World of Deception) is trimmed of all deception by the sharp sword of concise perception and protects us from the fantasy and illusion of unreality. It is the very head of mankind, the thinking center of words, definitions, and all concepts of division-ism made by mankind identities, that deceive us, removing us from What is Real, and becoming what is "reality" born of indoctrination. When this "man-made mind" is removed, and the True Conscious that resides on the "other side of the Mirror", without reflection (which is reverse of true presence) and is knowledge not made by words but transmitted via intuition. Imagination, is the "Womb-with-a view", She uses Image (Mandalas) as her expression of idea. Words are controlled definition supplied to us by our "Rulers" who control definition by enforcement---and their only power is our reaction to them. Powerful Idea, is made manifest----and is all Action and cares little for reaction. Thus we have the head of the innocent child, who is not concerned with reaction, but clear and concise in idea. As you can see, this Divination is made a Complicated Card because of our inability to disconnect our identity from the trickster of our indoctrinated brain. We honestly believe that words are knowledge and condemn or praise each other with definitions. Yet if I yell with all my force the word Grass, that identity of plant fails to grow on my floor. The floor and the realm of Plants fails to see any power in a word. But if I fertilize and prepare by the ability of work, grass will grow whether I give it definition or not. Power is described as the "ability to do work".....it is not a belief system. The body that we call human, is a Power Tool, that enables Our Energy Conscious to work ideas into manifestation (Transformations of the One Energy) in the Realm of Malkuth---Earth. We are known by deeds not by words. In the Real, we have been praised into manifestation as a clear concise idea of Imagination's Self Image! The principles of the Queen of Swords brings us to an understanding of how we are deceived by thoughts while showing us how to transcend deception by Knowing Ourselves as we are Known to Her.
If personified, this Archetype Personality is usually an older woman who has loved and lost but is undaunted. She is strong willed and determined with clarity of idea, a woman who can bear whatever life presents. She can be critical of emotional outbursts and knows that mental discipline is a necessary part of balance emotions. She is a master of equanimity and negativity. She knows words are necessary for communication of ideas---but not truth.Truth is in the manifestation of idea and not a reaction to it. The Reaction of emotional out-burst is fear of idea.
When this card is thrown, the Querent is coming into a phase of realization. Realizing that reacting emotionally to worded thought is a trick that keeps us enslaved to the visions of others. Rather, she/he now understands (or soon will) that Active participation in our own ideas, is why we have a body in the first place! Be full of Your Idea, and clear and sharp on your destination and then----Go For It! Do and die, is what life is. I would rather die doing what I enjoy than die as a slave to someone else's definition.
