Wildwood : A Queen has Answers

The Queen of Arrows comes out to join us in the latter half of the week and offers to us more answers than questions.

Queen of Arrows The Swan

The Swan

Any card can offer more than one interpretation and meaning and it very much depends on the context / position of what comes up in the spread. The question isn’t what the Queen of Arrows is offering today, she’s offering answers.

The Queen of Arrows (Queen of Swords in RWS) if very much a lady who tells it like it is and when she’s told you what you maybe didn’t want to hear (but you perhaps needed to) she’ll leave you to it. Why does she do that?

Well, frankly, it’s your life and your decisions but she thinks that you’re certainly not thinking straight, nor are you really seeing the whole picture and you’re about to make a rather spectacular mistake. (Feel free to change the word mistake for another hyphenated phrase, I won’t mind!)

Her answers maybe inappropriate and can be given unsolicited, but if you have been brave enough to ask someone who can be direct in their response, be sure to listen to the advice.

For one, she (or he, for although it’s a Queen, the card isn’t gender specific about who is giving the advice or providing the answers, but more like someone who displays the qualities of a Queen, be they male or female) isn’t living your life, they’re not the ones making a decision or living with the consequences. This is why I think she’s looking back over her shoulder / wing: just to verify that you actually did listen and that you’re not really going to step into the crocodile pit before you, without the words: “I told you so!” coming back to you.

If you did ask someone of this nature for an answer, pay heed! If you didn’t, you can at least say that the advise or information wasn’t solicited, should it prove to be useless.

I’m happy for you to share this blog post via your own social media channels. I promise I won’t be offended by you doing that!

    Haha, nice! I’m trying to develop my Queen of Arrows- I’m more a Queen of Vessels with a bit of Queen of Stone underneath! :). I appreciate the brusque forthrightness of the Queen of Arrows, usually!

      I’m very much the same, Olivia πŸ™‚
      Though, I’m still a little naive (Page like) at times, the Queen of Arrows can be a little much / harsh but not without reason πŸ™‚
      However I can say things and come across very Queen of Swords… Must watch out for that aspect as the week draws to a close πŸ™‚

    I need to get a lil more of these arrows in my speech… I think them but I hold back to keep the peace! A lil too much libra in my chart πŸ™‚

      I swear I was at the back of the queue for diplomacy Mimi! Heck, if there was a queue, I probably missed it! *lol*
      I find when the Queen or the King come out, my temper is pretty much at its limit… One day, I might actually pay attention when those cards come out πŸ™‚
