Queen of Swords — Spiritual Message of the Day

January 8, 2011

Queen of Swords -- Tarot of the MastersThe Queen of Swords has learned the lessons of life from the school of hard knocks. Unfortunately, grief and sorrow often tempt us to protect ourselves from the stinging vagaries of the world by clinging to strict rules of what is “right and wrong” without tempering our judgment with compassion. Rigid dogma may seem to provide a safe haven from fate’s slings and arrows, but it also makes us emotionally barren.

This card serves as a warning against becoming moralistic, sanctimonious, and self-righteous — traits which lurk on the “dark side of the force” with regards to our spirituality. Be on the look out for them today, and if you find yourself falling prey to them, gently consider how you can act in a more understanding and compassionate way instead.

  1. I REALLY like this take on the QoS. I’ve never seen that meaning attached to this card before, to be on guard against becoming sanctimonious. I will definitely remember that! Thanks.
