This is the Queen of Swords from the Paulina Tarot, by Paulina Cassidy.
I seem to draw alot of swords when reading for myself these days!
The Queen of Swords reminds me to use my intellect and my will wisely...I must listen to my head rather than my heart. She may even represent me, as myself, as I'm very analytical, and very dependent on my insightfulness to get me through the day. She also represents sarcasm and wit - and those who know me well will vouch that I can be quite heavy on both!
This is a card that represents solitary efforts. I have a tendency to want to 'go it alone', but I must be able to realize when this is possible and when it is not. She tells me to make my wants and needs clear - no beating around the bush with this lady.
She also reminds me that while it is sometimes necessary to allow my rational to rule over my emotions, trying to always be rational and logical can suppress my emotional expression too much.
This was a very good card for me today...A bit of a 'wake up' call - one I didn't really realize that I needed!
