Queen of Swords as Love Outcome Tarot Card Meaning Sibyl Tarot

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. 

Upright Queen of Swords as Love Outcome

If you are asking about what is the outcome of a relationship, and you draw the Queen of Swords, that means that there might be what feels like coldness in the relationship. It is astrologically associated with the element of air, which isn’t exactly the cuddliest of energies in the Tarot. The Queen of Swords has quite the reputation. She is known as being cold-hearted, distant, some readers will even label her the signifier for a “divorce” card. But many forget that in the upright she embodies an honest, fair, and very loyal energy. She’s also great company. She’s witty, has a clever sense of humor, and is unafraid of the truth.

The Queen of Swords as love outcome is a sign of being forthcoming in a relationship. This card’s energy may come off as unromantic, but this is the energy of somebody who comes in with zero pretenses. This is somebody who will talk about personal finances at the beginning of the relationship. Your person doesn’t beat around the bush, and when you see this card in a reading, neither should you. Your person may be very pragmatic. What you see is what you get with the energy of this particular Queen.

If you are wondering about a potential relationship, the Queen of Swords as love outcome means a pretty straightforward relationship. You will know whether you have potential with this person or not pretty early on. This person, although they may not seem like the mushy type, is a sensitive and considerate person deep down. They would never lead a person on. Which is why, they’ll typically make it clear to a person if they weren’t interested. However, if this person does show interest in you, it means they’re serious.

If you are in a new relationship, the Queen of Swords as love outcome means being logical. Oftentimes when we enter into a new relationship, we get all lovey-dovey and reason is thrown out of the window.  But when you have the Queen of Swords energy in your relationship, there’s likely a good balance between reason and romance. The Queen of Swords is astrologically associated with the Air energies, in particular Libra. Libra is the sign of fairness in relationships. So, expect this person to be considerate, but also expect them to expect you to be equally considerate to their needs.

If you are in an existing relationship, the Queen of Swords as love outcome means the relationship is filled with intelligent fun. Both of you are mature, and always see the humor in things.  In fact, the two of you may have bonded over having similar senses of humor, especially if you’re both into dark humor or satire. This is the kind of relationship where after a certain amount of time has passed, you are able to see the humor in a past negative incident, and laugh at yourselves. You’re both loyal, candid, and value honesty. Since this card is astrologically associated with Libra and legalities, seeing this card may indicate legalizing your relationship.

If you are currently in separation with each other, the Queen of Swords as love outcome means honesty and transparency. If you are separated by distance, the two of you are quite communicative and with each other.  You always try to keep each other in the loop on what’s happening in your lives. This comes naturally to you, never feels intrusive, it’s voluntary openness with each other, which then fosters an organic trust between one another. If you are inquiring about an ex you’re interested in reconciling with, your ex is seeing what happened between the two of you from a logical and analytical point of view. Whether or not your person might be open to reconciliation, will depend on the surrounding cards, indicating what they have concluded about the relationship. If giving the relationship another try makes logical sense of them, then they might be open to it.

Reversed Queen of Swords as Love Outcome

If you are asking about what is the outcome of a relationship, and you draw the Queen of Swords reversed, that means that there is genuine coldness, or even conflict, in your relationship. When drawn the reverse, the Queen of Swords can be unfair. She may expect to be given more than she gives. She is not only unaffectionate, she can be selfish.  This could be the energy of your person or both of you. Unlike the upright Queen of Swords who is all around intelligent, this Queen embodies the energy of somebody who is only book smart, but lacks emotional intelligence.

The Queen of Swords reversed as love outcome is a sign of a tendency to be cruel in relationships. This could be a relationship that is colored by bitterness and spitefulness. It’s going to be a signifier of a very toxic relationship. You may be dealing with somebody who enjoys conflict for the sake of conflict, a Drama King/Queen. This person may have grown up in a toxic household with terrible role models in unhealthy relationships. They may be very secretive, leading you to wonder if they’re hiding anything.

If you are wondering about a potential relationship, the Queen of Swords reversed as love outcome means the relationship will be unhealthy, especially mentally and emotionally. One thing to consider when you draw the Queen of Swords in reverse, is that this Queen embodies the energy of bitterness and spitefulness. We normally wouldn’t assume that somebody would date us just to spite us. However, this person could pursue new partners to spite an ex. The energy that this card embodies is negative for all parties, so think twice before emotionally investing in this person. 

If you are in a new relationship, the Queen of Swords reversed as love outcome means the relationship is backwards and unpleasant. Even in the upright, she is sometimes read as being cold, bitter, and this card is often used to signify “ex” energy. Now consider how that energy would be implemented in a new relationship. This is the energy of somebody who is embittered by previous relationships, and taking out their frustrations and past traumas on you. You don’t deserve to pay for the mistakes of somebody else’s exes. You can attempt to help this person heal, but ultimately it’s their own responsibility to move past what others have done to them.

If you are in an existing relationship, the Queen of Swords reversed as love outcome means refusing to move on from a negative situation. This is the energy of somebody who enjoys nitpicking and being overly critical. When things go wrong in a relationship, instead of self-reflecting, they automatically blame everything that went wrong on the other person. Even though you already know that the situation is unhealthy, and potentially even abusive. You may find that your person likes to pick fights with you. Know your worth, and know when to walk away.

If you are currently in separation with each other, the Queen of Swords reversed as love outcome means you need to be mindful that your person might do things out of spite. The Queen of Swords in the reverse is a bitter and spiteful energy. If you are separated by distance, this person might purposely trigger you for no reason other than to upset you. If you are inquiring about an ex you’re interested in reconciling with, this person may be too bitter to even consider reconciling with you. If they do agree to give the relationship another chance, be mindful that this person might just be doing this to mentally torment you.
