The swords suit is all about the intellect and left brain thinking. It is the mental aspect of our lives where we think and take action and deal with our lives through reason and logic, and sometimes worry. Sometimes we do not know that we create our reality with our thoughts, and our mental attitudes, which can sometimes be our worst enemy. Its element is air, its season is winter.
A sword represents the air as it cuts through the air to its final destiny and purpose. In our deck it is represented as a sword or dagger or blade.
The queen and king of Swords are more like sister and brother than husband and wife. The queen is usually a woman alone. She is a tough task master. The King is a counselor, advisor, lawyer and the queen can also function in these professions with similar energy. Here, the queen is holding two swords which represents that her attitude is more about following her mind rather than her heart. The king's swords are on the wall behind him as his power lies in his office or in his knowledge and wisdom base as he often holds issues of life and death in his hands. He is a wise counselor who also places his mind the driver's seat rather than his heart.
