Queen of Swords

Queen of Swords is a scary card!  You can see that in the Thoth Deck.  In this Deck, she clearly holds the severed head of a man in her left hand; and the sword she holds in her right hand, points down towards the Earth.  So don’t mess with her!

It may very well be that she represents ‘the Sun Card’ in this deck, but as Crowley himself says:  “she means business”.  She understands and notices things very quickly.  She thinks outside the box.  This is a great card to do ‘Mind Liberation Magic’ with; as she frees your mind up so to learn, understand, and to quickly think up solutions to what problems you may have in any given situation.  She is very efficient in that way!

Water of Air

Water of Air, “means the humidity in the Air.  The elasticity of the Element.  And its power of transmission.  The Empire of the Queen of Swords is of the Celestial Dew…  She is the clear, conscience perception of idea…  Because her throne is upon the clouds, she is graceful and just.  She is exceptionally graceful in movement, and in the ability in dancing and balancing”, Crowley.

When the Queen of Swords is in a bad mood

When the Queen of Swords is in a bad mood, her intent and purpose are not good!  In her, they are unreadable.  Because they are not detectable, she is then even more cruel, sly, deceitful, and unreliable.  Her beauty sets her apart from the others, so be careful, do not interfere with her.

The Queen of Swords keeps herself in-check

The Queen of Swords keeps herself in-check.  She is not all bad; she has a conscious!  She does not want to be a bad person, so her conscious has built-in safeguards against her dark side.  She is endowed with the ability to foresee the consequences of her actions and words upon the people in her environment.  She is mindful of her words and actions.  This because, she wants the advantage in a situation.

You know what they say!  They say don’t mess with the Queen of Swords!  She has friends in low places; and they do love her because her cause is a right one!
