This queen sits strong upon her throne, wielding a very sharp blade.
Beware the double-edged sword in this card. This queen has a dogged determination to meet her goals and have what she wants. The positive to this is that she has great energy and she devotes herself completely, works tirelessly and never gives up.
The downside is sometimes she fights so hard to get what she wants, only to later discover it was not in her best interests at all. Her determination is so strong that she doesn’t heed the advice of others, or she dismisses other signs and signals. Then, after much wasted effort; she discovers her energy could have been put to a more beneficial use.
This card reminds us that when something doesn’t feel right, no matter how much we think we want it, it’s sometimes better to let go and put that energy into more constructive channels even if it means an initial sacrifice or disappointment. An example might be someone who gives into a craving to satisfy the urges of the moment instead of staying focused on long-term goals.
Use the determination and strength of will represented in this card to direct your energy towards what is for your higher good. Queens always represent a dynamic spiritual force and true leadership that allows you to accomplish things you may not have thought possible.
Empower yourself to cut away any influences in your life that may be harmful to you long-term – anything from bad habits to toxic relationships. This queen grows through sacrifice and a willingness to leave comfort zones to pursue something better.
