Daily Tarot Reading for 7-18-2018


The Tarot card for today is the Queen of Swords. Yesterday, the message was to tap into our intuition, which many people think is done by only using emotions. However, controlling the emotions is also a part of being intuitive. The Queen of Swords guards against being overly emotional through clear thinking, clear communication. and being fair and balanced. These traits often are considered to be masculine in nature. But whether you are a man or woman, be compassionate without letting emotion overrule you while at the same time not overthinking things.

Traditional  meanings of the Queen of Swords card is that it represents a women with an unpleasant personality, a “bitch,” so to speak. But I totally disagree. I think this outdated interpretation is sexist. Being logical, objective, and self composed is not limited to male or female. Each and every one of us has feminine and masculine traits that we should develop to the fullest. Of all the Queens in the Tarot, the Queen of Swords shows us that women and men are intellectual equals.

Have a wonderful day.
