The Queen of Swords has learned not to take things too seriously and takes her life experiences and others with a grain of salt. As a result she is not hurt easily by the actions of others. She has built a protective boundary or reserve around herself that keeps others out. She can reach out to them when she wishes but they are held at a distance. She is strongly active on the astral planes and can perceive them without distortion.
The Queen can take a lot of public criticism and puts tremendous time and energy into public or social causes and is recognized as a social reformer. She has a strong awareness of the need to balance spiritual things and still live in a physical body. Physical needs must also be met in life. Spiritual goals must be realistic and attainable. She has a message and a mission of needed social change.
She is acutely aware of the “dark” side of her nature and has experienced much emotional pain in her life. Her acceptance of her dark side helps her to relate to others in a more humane way. She can empathize with others and feel their pain as well as her own emotional pain. This makes her a natural spokesperson for others.
She is able to use her personal experiences as a catalyst to help others and influence society. She is extremely adaptable to new conditions and will try anything if it will further her personal cause. She is able to find a way around any obstacles to her plans and get the things she wants. Her pain fuels her cause. Perhaps she has lost a child in a car accident or been the victim of violence. Her strength gives others strength to cope with similar issues.
