The Queen of Swords is the card of honesty, fairness, objectiveness, principles, independence, and perception. The card shows a queen, with a stern look on her face, sitting regally on a throne. She looks off into the distance in a profile view, as if she is pronouncing a judgement on someone. She gives off an aura of confidence. She knows what she is doing, and she knows that her pronouncements are fair.
The Queen of Swords reminds us that honesty and fairness are important principles in building good relationships. They are just as important as empathy and emotional understanding. When you know what your values are, it will become clear to you what and who you are looking for in a romantic relationship. The Queen of Swords is a reminder that we must choose with our head as much as our heart.
If you are asking about how someone feels about you and you draw the Queen of Swords, it means that this person is feeling clear about where they stand with you. This person is viewing your relationship from a logical perspective, rather than an emotional perspective. They are aware of their boundaries, and they want to make sure that everything is fair between the two of you.
In their heart, they are loving and loyal, but this person does not easily let down their guard. They feel sharp, perceptive, and discerning of who they let into their lives. This person also values their own space and identity, and they want to make sure that you are okay with that as the relationship moves forward.
For singles and those embarking on new relationships, the Queen of Swords means that this person is feeling generally positive toward you, but they are still observing your actions. Their caution is not necessarily a bad thing. They believe that a person’s true self is revealed over time, and it will take more than one grand gesture to win them over. This person operates more with their head than their heart. This is a good sign for a budding relationship, but it will need to be developed over time.
For existing relationships, the Queen of Swords indicates that this person is feeling clear where they stand with you. They love you and they feel loyal to you.

If you are asking about an old flame or an ex’s feelings about you, the Queen of Swords indicates that they feel that things between you ended fairly. They are not feeling hurt over it anymore. With time, they have been able to view things more objectively. They have accepted your breakup. If you are wondering about getting back together, they will consider reconciliation if it makes logical sense to them.
In the context of whether or not a relationship is headed for commitment, engagement, or marriage, the Queen of Swords is a sign that it can happen in time. Your person wants the next step to make logical sense to them as far as where it fits in their overall life trajectory. This is a person who makes decisions with their head as well as their heart. Now is a good time to talk to them about it, both the emotional aspects as well as the less exciting, logistical aspects.
