Joan of Arc by Charles Lenoir (1860~1926)


Faces the truth, even if unpleasant

Is up front with everyone

Likes everything on the table

Plays by the rules

Avoids lies and deception 


Sizes up a situation quickly

Understands hidden motives and desires

Is difficult to fool, trick or con

Figures out the unspoken rules and agendas

Is quick on the uptake 


Is direct and open in all dealings

Gets to the heart of the matter

Acts without pretense or guile

Is straightforward and no-nonsense

Can be candid when necessary 


Has a delightful sense of humor

Diffuses awkward situations with a funny remark

Never takes anything too seriously

Laughs at everything, including him or herself 


Has seen and done it all

Has strength due to life's hard knocks

Is free of self-righteous judgments

Has realistic expectations 

The personality of the Queen of Swords combines the positive air energy of the Swords suit with the inward focus of a Queen. You can always count on her to tell you exactly how it is. Above all else she admires honesty, and she lives by her commitment to being truthful. Lies, tricks and games are of no interest to her, but she's not easy to fool. She is experienced in the ways of the world, good and bad. The Queen of Swords can size up a situation quickly. She understands human folly, but doesn't condemn it. She knows when cow manure is being thrown around and simply finds clever ways around it. She prefers being straightforward and direct. Her observations are candid, but never hurtful. In fact, this Queen has a delightful sense of humor. She likes a good laugh and always has a witty comeback ready-at-hand. She knows that life isn't meant to be taken too seriously. The Queen of Swords is refreshing in her candor and lack of pretense. 

In readings, the Queen of Swords asks you be completely honest - with yourself and others. Be direct and get straight to the point of the matter.

If someone is trying to pull a fast one; stay sharp, ready to straighten them out! Don't allow yourself to be fooled.

Can you see or find humor in a situation? 

This Queen can also represent a person who is like her, or an atmosphere of honest, direct communication. Let yourself be inspired by this Queen in whatever form she appears in your life. 

Vibrant activity and intelligence. 

Power leads one to truthful self-analysis and faith in the evolution of the soul towards its creator. 

A determined woman/person of power, but there is a barrier between her and others. 

One who is honest, sharp witted, can be harsh, and a good organizer. 

A woman of Virgo temperament.
