Queen of Swords - "Queen of Swords generally represents fair principles, sternness, and honesty. When reversed, Queen of Swords is malicious, representing deceit, coldness, manipulation and a lack of forgiveness. When appearing in a tarot reading, she urges you to look at a situation indifferently, at least when upright."
The Queen of Swords is an archetype of an older, wiser feminine intellect. She could be thought of as the most masculine of all the queens and may come off as quite stern and emotionless.
