Queen of Swords – Book of Thoth

Queen of Swords Divinatory Meanings

The Queen of Swords is a sorrowful woman who has lost in love, or is widowed.

Characteristics of the Queen of Swords

The person symbolized by this card should be intensely perceptive, a keen observer, a subtle interpreter, an intense individualist, swift and accurate at recording ideas; in action confident, in spirit gracious and just. Her movements will be graceful, and her ability in dancing and balancing exceptional.

If ill-dignified, these qualities will all be turned to unworthy purposes. She will be cruel, sly, deceitful and unreliable; in this way, very dangerous, on account of the superficial beauty and attractiveness which distinguish her.

    Hi Paul,
    looking at the Queen of Swords with the severed head, what comes to mind is Kali of Kashmir Shaivism.
    Kali was released from Durgha’s head to fight a fierce demon. Durgha is an expression of the female principle, a Shakti of Shiva.
    Kali accomplished the task in a hard fight and decapitated the demon. He asked her for the boon to be accepted as her servant.
    Would Crowley have known about this?

      He probably did!
