Mother Tarot: Queen of Swords
Playing well with others? “Perhaps not?” says the Queen of Swords, clique leader of the Mother Tarot Deck.
This Queen leads by example, including her lack of empathy, obsession with appearances, and the inner turmoil that hides beneath her shiny coat.
She buys too much, wastes too much, and loves too little. The air is thick with her heavy aura. She envies those who are free to be authentic. She is consumed by late capitalism, internalized self-prejudice, unintegrated trauma, and wealth that she cannot manage.
Her posse is a collection of similarly lost or apathetic souls. They are at once comforted and chained by her familiar harsh critique and aggrandized view of herself.
When this card appears, it is because you need to either step out of the familiar power this figure holds over you or look in the mirror to see if this cat is you. If your scenario is the former, take her criticisms as compliments. If the latter is more true, it’s time to let your guard down, apologize, and share your blessings with others.
This deck is currently available for pre-order and is due to head to printers by July 16th, 2021 (at the latest. I expect to finish much sooner. That's my do-or-die deadline and also my birthday!)
