Queen of Swords

SWORDS queenMeet Atalanta, the Queen of Swords. She is perfection in her lofty ideals and her high standards. But she seems cold doesn’t she? She maybe lacks compassion and empathy. Maybe some detachment, some clinical assessment, and some strategy is in order. Then again maybe you need to see where you are perhaps being unbending. Demanding perfection from yourself and others dooms you to disappointment; an unattainable goal. You can demand you and others try your best. That seems more realistic. When I pull this card it reminds me that it is important to have a high road and to always want to travel confidently on it, but to also remember to practice compassion and know that sometimes that path gets muddy.
