Daily Tarot Reflections The Queen of Swords

tarot reflections queen of swordsThis queen sits strong upon her throne, wielding a very sharp blade.

Beware the double-edged sword in this card. This queen has a dogged determination to meet her goals and have what she wants. The positive to this is that she has great energy and she devotes herself completely, works tirelessly and never gives up.

The downside is sometimes she fights so hard to get what she wants, only to later discover it was not in her best interests at all. Her determination is so strong that she doesn’t heed the advice of others, or she dismisses other signs and signals. Then, after much wasted effort; she discovers her energy could have been put to a more beneficial use.

This card reminds us that when something doesn’t feel right, no matter how much we think we want it, it’s sometimes better to let go and put that energy into more constructive channels even if it means an initial sacrifice or disappointment. An example might be someone who gives into a craving to satisfy the urges of the moment instead of staying focused on long-term goals.

Use the determination and strength of will represented in this card to direct your energy towards what is for your higher good. Queens always represent a dynamic spiritual force and true leadership that allows you to accomplish things you may not have thought possible.

Empower yourself to cut away any influences in your life that may be harmful to you long-term – anything from bad habits to toxic relationships. This queen grows through sacrifice and a willingness to leave comfort zones to pursue something better.

Seven of Swords Tarot Reflection

tarot reflections the seven of swordsThis card can indicate a happy surprise or previously unseen advantage. It also warns us to not “be sneaky”, and to watch for others who may have their own agenda.

It’s important to remember that we don’t have to manipulate or impose our will on the situation. Often it is better to wait for the right moment to move forward. Taking hasty action can undermine your efforts more than help. If you sit back sometimes the right answer has a way of “popping up” when it’s most needed.

Trying to force our will on a situation or another person typically backfires. If you feel a need to micromanage things at this time, explore it. Is there a hidden fear prompting questionable motives or behaviors?

This is a good card for reminding us that “what goes around comes around”. In that case, try being what you want to see more of. Are people around you being sneaky or engaging in less than desirable behaviors? Avoid the temptation to join in or retaliate. It only fuels the fire.

This is a card that reminds us that often our fears lead us to act against our better judgment or nature. Realize this tendency and you may prevent something you would later regret. Also, be careful who you share information with and how much.
