Of all of the Court cards, I often read the Swords Courts the most negatively. Usually, I read them as representing someone in your life who is causing you trouble be that an outsider, friend, family member, or even you yourself. 

I understand that not all Tarot readers interpret the Swords Courts so negatively, so if you fall into this camp, feel free to mold my interpretation into something which makes sense for you. 

Before you read my full interpretation below for what the King and Queen of Swords mean when they appear together, remember that I may interpret them differently for every reading; this is only a general guide. For example, sometimes I would read Court cards as outside people but other times I would read them as representing the seeker (the person getting the reading). Keep that in mind when reading the below interpretation! 

The King and Queen of Swords in a General Tarot Reading

In general readings, I would interpret the King and Queen of Swords together as representing a couple who wish to do you harm. These individuals do not want what is best for you and have plotted together to try and destroy your goals. 

In my experience, I have found that the Queen and King of Swords usually symbolizes two people who operate together in some way. For example, they may be two people at your place of employment, a romantic couple, or your parents.  

The King and Queen of Swords in a love Tarot reading combination

It is entirely possible that the King and Queen of Swords negatively impact you but do not mean to do so. Your parents may be the type who is constantly giving you ‘constructive criticism’. What they feel is them helping you by being realistic, is actually not; they are shooting down your dreams. In these situations, your parents would appear as the King and Queen of Swords. 

The King and Queen of Swords Together in a Love Tarot Reading

If the King and Queen of Swords appear together in a love reading, this can indicate two things; it can mean that outsiders are a bad influence on your relationship, or that you and your partner are both negative influences on each other. 

If you’re finding that other people are quick to meddle in your relationship, then the King and Queen of Swords can represent these individuals. This interpretation is especially fitting if you or your lover’s parents both nit-pick at your partnership. 

Alternatively, if you and your lover both have children to other people it is not unknown for those individuals to appear as the King and Queen of Swords, especially if they are causing you both trouble. 

However, I have found that (in most cases) the Queen and King of Swords appear together in love or relationship readings because they symbolize both you and your partner. 

Individuals appear as Swords Courts in relationship readings when they are unhappy. They no longer feel the same way they used to feel about their lover, and just ‘go through the motions’. The relationship lacks fun, excitement, and passion. Although this combination does not predict you will separate, it does not look good to have it in your love reading.  

The King and Queen of Swords in a Career Tarot Reading

Are you in business? Then the Queen and the King of Swords represent your competitors. It is very possible that your biggest hurdle towards business success is your competitors; they are giving your ideal customer something which you are not supplying so stalk the competition and try to decipher what that thing might be. 

Alternatively, if you are in a relationship the King and Queen of Swords together in your career reading is a sign that your partnership is having a negative impact on your career. If this is the case, you may want to make changes to your love life so that it doesn’t interfere in other places that are of importance to you. 

Finally, in career readings, I have found that the King and Queen of Swords together most often represent your boss/bosses. This combination is a warning that those in charge wish to see you fail. Do not put all of your career eggs in one basket, especially if you do not feel as though your current job is secure.

Queen of Swords Love Tarot Meaning

Queen of Swords Love Tarot Meaning

Trouble is the Queen of Swords love Tarot meaning. The Queen of Swords is someone who cares deeply about conflict. The Queen of Swords represents a female in your life who is meaning to cause you problems.

Usually, this woman thrives on drama and conflict and wants nothing more than to interfere in your business, love life, and personal relationships. You may or may not already know her identity. The card serves as a warning that she could one day potentially become a powerful influence. 

In some Tarot card decks, the Queen of Swords is called the Mother of Swords. However, the Tarot card meaning of the Mother of Swords and the Queen of Swords is the same.

Sometimes, the Queen of Swords can be an omen for bad things to come. For example, she could represent you during a period where you are feeling lonely. She can mean that you will become divorced or widowed before your time.

Although the Queen of Swords is an overly negative card there will be times when she appears as a positive. For example, she is likely to come up when you need to adopt her attitude.

The Queen of Swords is very direct and to the point. While she may come across as being quite bitchy and aggressive, those around her know where they stand. Perhaps there are individuals in your life who like to walk all over you, and you need to grow a backbone. Channel the Queen of Swords and tell them straight.

If the Queen of Swords appears as a course of action you should take, then she advises that you need to be more independent and walk your path alone.

The Tarot Queen of Swords for relationships, love, outcome, future, ex returning, yes or no.

Queen of Swords Love Tarot Meaning

Like the other Sword Courts, I would argue that the Queen of Swords is rarely a desirable card to receive for a relationship reading. If you are wondering someone’s feelings towards you, they don’t look good. 

I would read the Queen of Swords as a female who is trying to impact your relationship negatively. Sometimes, this can be an ex, but I have found that it is often a mother, mother in law, or another female relative. If she appears in the outcome position, this can mean one of two things;

1. You will separate from your partner because of her.

2. She will be a consistent problem within your relationship for the foreseeable future.

Queen of Swords as a Negative, Weakness or Obstacle

In a negative reading, the Queen of Swords can indicate someone who is lonely. Although you often come across as cold and detached, you want to love and be loved. There is a part of you that misses human affections. 

Also, the Queen of Swords will pop up as a negative if you have someone in your life who is cruel for no reason. This individual likes to hurt others and meddles in other people’s affairs (including yours). According to Tarot tradition, this woman is likely infertile, divorced, widowed, or has gone through menopause.

Queen of Swords as a Positive, Strength or Advantage

In a positive Tarot reading, the Queen of Swords can indicate someone who is independent. If the Queen of Swords symbolizes you in a positive, strength or advantage position of a Tarot spread, this means that you do not need the approval or company of others. You are a survivor, and you can make it on your own. 

Your directness is also a benefit. You do not beat around the bush and are straight to the point. Because you have the confidence to say what you think, in the future, you will attract people who know they cannot walk all over you.
