The Queen of Swords: Reversed Meanings
The Golden Tarot Queen’s
The Queens are the feminine counterparts of the Kings. They are also a reflection or a certain aspect of the Empress. These cards are very strong and have a weight in a reading that is naturally superior to a page or knight for instance. Just like the Kings, they can become threatening when reversed. But even head up, they’re more complex and contrasted than the Kings. Mostly because in the Middle-Ages, women were not only considered inferior to men, they were always a possible danger. These aspects can be used or not in a reading depending on your culture, background but above all, the energy of the session you’re in.
The Golden Tarot Suit of Swords
The Suit of Swords is associated with action, change, force, power, oppression, ambition, courage and conflict. Action can be both constructive and/or destructive, sometimes resulting in violence. This suit can also mean hatred, battle, and enemies, and of all the suits, this one is considered to be the most powerful and dangerous. The Suit of Swords deals with the mental level of consciousness that is centred around the mind and the intellect. Swords mirror the quality of mind present in your thoughts, attitudes, and beliefs. Swords themselves are double-edged and in this way the Suit of Swords symbolises the fine balance between intellect and power and how these two elements can be used for good or evil. As such, the Swords must be balanced by spirit (Wands) and feeling (Cups). The negative aspects of the Suit of Swords (i.e. when the Swords cards appear reversed) include anger, guilt, harsh judgement, a lack of compassion and verbal and mental abuse.
Comprised of imagery from the European masters paintings, Golden Tarot cards pay tribute to artwork of the Middle Ages and early Renaissance. The Golden Tarot of Klimt is one of the best for artwork. Golden Tarot aims to reconnect the Tarot aesthetically and esoterically to its origins in early-renaissance Italy. From a time of violence, pestilence and oppression came poignant images of gentle beauty and human frailty.

Here are some snippets from a few of my favorite books
Complete Book of Tarot: The major arcana (the Hermit and the Magician) suggest that President Obamas spiritual lessons include learning how to deal with aggression in a contemplative, well-reasoned and skilful manner. The Queen of Swords is a model for the type of cool rationality that might help in situations of conflict related to warlike Mars. The Ten of Pentacles indicates that the president is likely to learn this lesson in his material affairs and in efforts to pass on his legacy to the next generation.
Creative Tarot: Which is, essentially, what the imagery of the tarot does as well. Every gesture, every color, every archetype and figure stands in for something greater, something very personal and meaningful to us. Its no wonder, then, that surrealists were drawn to the tarot.
Complete Book of Tarot: The Rider-Waite-Smith Tarot, published in 1909, undoubtedly the most popular deck of the last century. It has been cloned many, many times.
