Upright Love

The Queen of Swords upright love meaning can signify three potential characters. Is there a motherly or mature woman figure that has things to say about your relationship? As hard as it is to hear, she may have a point. You may want to logically think about her advice. If this is for your partner, you may feel like they are not as affectionate as you would like, but understand that their loyalty is unceasing and they will appreciate you and communicate honestly if you speak openly about your concerns. The third character is you. There is nothing wrong with your candidness, but always be aware of how far you go. Do not hurt feelings if it is not needed and blame honesty. If single, you are showing strength and self-sufficiency. You may not have someone right now, but you are ready when the door opens.

Queen of Swords Reversed Meaning

Queen of Swords reversed is a cautionary tale. Your emotions are running the show. Your lack of forgiveness to others and yourself is holding you down, and there may be a female that is not working in your best interests. This card is one of deceit and treachery.

Reversed Health

You will lack focused thinking right now. Your mental fog follows you around and you are unsure which way to turn. If you are on medications, be careful with the schedule and take precautions not to double up or completely forget to take them. This also signifies infertility.

Reversed Love

As above, the Queen of Swords reversed love meaning can represent three characters. It may be a female figure that is trying to get between your partnership through lies and hate. It could be reflecting deceit, cheating, or scandal within your significant other. If it  is showing yourself, it may be reflecting your own insecurities and lack of freedom within the relationship.

Reversed Money and Career

Here the concern is all about communication. Your lack of communication and the way you are being perceived by others are getting you in trouble. Think before you speak. Take the time needed to make sure that you are not coming across as aggressive, malicious, or fraudulent.
