Daily Draw: Tarot of the Stars ~ Queen of Swords
In simple fortune-telling the Queen of Swords is often thought to be sharp tongued, the other woman, a gossip...all the court cards can be seen as one-dimensional, the surrounding cards must flesh them out.
I'm reminded by this card we often make one-sided assumptions about people. We only see a professor at the head of class so are dumbfounded to read in the paper she got a DUI. We only know the pastor behind the pulpit and do a double take when we see him in street clothes grocery shopping. All of us have a full life with many facets, I'd do well to remember that next time I take a dislike to someone.
"We know what a person thinks not when he tells us what he thinks, but by his actions." ~ Isaac Bashevis Singer 1904-1991
