Queen of Swords - Secret Tarot
Sorrow Can Be Sticky
What immediately strikes me today is how her shadow is almost part of her. Also, how the tip of her sword is pressed into the floor as she leans on it ever so slightly. She stands tall and yet relaxed. Her eyes closed as she refuses to be influenced by anything going on around her. This is a vote of confidence in your decision making. Don’t allow yourself to be distracted and clarity will come. Go with your gut. Be clear about communicating what you want.
And remember, with the light of clarity comes the depth of shadow also. The truth contains both dark and light.
One of the things I was happy about is with this deck, I was also able to get the booklet which comes with it. It is still spare as far as interpretations, but what is interesting is that Nizoli has basically told his own story with this deck. The swords suit represents the Kingdom of Sorrow so this card may also serve as a reminder that it is all too easy to become trapped in a state of sorrow and depression and a caution against forgetting that this is a temporary suspension and that one must find a way cut through it to resume life, find happiness and movement.
