This is an opportunity for you to break out of the same old patterns you have been repeating and embrace something new.

The Queen Of Swords brings a sense of self-sufficiency to the situation, as well as a reminder to be totally honest with yourself and your partner. It’s important to think about what you want out of a relationship, and to be honest about how you feel. Speak up and be willing to let go of what no longer serves you, no matter how hard it is. This can feel like a freeing experience as you leave behind unhealthy relationships or dynamics and move on to something that better serves your love life.

At the same time, The Death card encourages you to break away from the old, and use this period of transformation to create something new and beautiful in your life.

This requires honesty with oneself and with others about what has worked and what hasn’t.

The Death card symbolizes a definitive end to unhealthy habits. This can be an emotional, mental, physical or spiritual death. In many cases, the transformation will be long overdue. The Queen Of Swords encourages us to be honest and understanding in making these changes. We should remain true to ourselves and be willing to make difficult decisions.

The meaning of the cards will depend on what kind of reading you are doing and the question you asked the deck. This is a guide covering the general meanings of the cards and how they relate to each other.

Common 2-card spreads

Whilst it’s great to know who these two cards interact with each other, it’s important to note that the meaning will depend on the context of your spread

The most common 2 card spreads I recommend to newer readers are:

  • The 2 card cross (otherwise known as “The Fool’s Journey”)
  • The 2 card “Yes or No”

“The Fool’s Journey”

Setup: The two card cross is where you place two cards face up, one placed vertically and with one laying horizontally over

Interpretation: The 2 cards represent a “situation” and a “challenge”. The first card will describe the situation you are in with the second horizontal card being the “challenge” crossing you (literally crossing you in this case!)

Reading: Using the overviews in this guide is a great way to start. First, look at the meanings of the 2 cards, and see how they might relate either as your “situation” or “challenge”. Once you have that you can look at the general overview for how the two cards interact with each other.

The benefit of this spread is that it can give clarity when you’re feeling uncertain or anxious. Once you have clarity of thought, and a strong idea of what your challenge is you can find solutions to help your situation

The 2 card “Yes or No”

Setup: The 2 card “Yes or No” is where you place two cards face up side by side, whilst asking your deck a “yes or no” question.

Interpretation: Each card in a tarot deck has a “yes” or a “no” meaning. Look at the meanings of each card, and you will have your answer.

The benefit of this is you get a stronger yes or no compared to a single card draw. You may find you often get a mix of “yes or no”, and this is fine. It simply means there is doubt, or things are not yet clear.

Yes or No meaning

Both Death and Queen Of Swords mean “No”. If you are asking a direct question, then be under no illusions, the answer is a negative one. If you draw Death and Queen Of Swords the answer to your question is “NO”.

The “Yes” and “No” meanings can differ from reader to reader. The meanings here are based on what I believe are the generally accepted definitions.

What does Death mean?

The Death Tarot card can signify a time of rejuvenation and transformation when it comes to health. It can mean a time to let go of unhealthy habits and behaviors, such as substance abuse, and to embrace healthier practices and lifestyles. It can also indicate a time to let go of restrictive dieting or unhealthy relationships with food. It can be a turning point for someone to take their health more seriously and make the necessary changes for their lifestyle and well-being, such as incorporating more nutrition, exercise and relaxation into their routine.

The Death Tarot card can represent a time of financial change. It can mean a time to let go of bad money habits and practice better financial management. It can also mean it’s time to take a leap of faith and invest in something new and exciting, or to take on a new job or career path. For those who are already financially secure, it can be a call to transform the way they manage their finances, such as investing in a more sustainable or ethical way, or to find a way to use their money to benefit someone in their community.

The Death Tarot card can signify a time for transformation and renewal in relationships. It may mean a time for releasing unhealthy and toxic relationships, allowing each person involved to go their separate ways in peace. It can also indicate a time to let go of codependency and pursue a healthier and more independent path. It can be a sign to take a hard look at the state of a relationship and make the necessary changes for it to be more meaningful and fulfilling. It can represent a time to be honest and open with each other, to create an atmosphere of trust and respect.

What does Queen Of Swords mean?

Health: The Queen of Swords Tarot card signifies that you need to put your own health first. Self-care is essential, so make sure you are taking time to rest and nurture yourself. With total honesty, you should be able to be honest with yourself about your own health, and what you can do to improve it. Prioritize making healthier decisions, but be aware of when you are neglecting yourself for the sake of others.

Finances: The Queen of Swords Tarot card symbolizes a self-sufficient attitude and total honesty when it comes to finances. This means that you should be taking responsibility for your own financial security, and being honest about your financial situation. It’s important to practice healthy spending habits and budgeting. With truthfulness, you can make sure you are staying within a budget and not getting yourself into debt.

Relationships: The Queen of Swords Tarot card suggests that self-sufficiency and total honesty is important for relationships. This means that you should be honest and truthful with your partners, and communicate openly and frequently. Be honest with yourself about what you need and expect in a relationship, and don’t be afraid to speak up when you feel like something is off. Remember that relationships require a healthy balance between giving and taking, and don’t be afraid to stand up for yourself.


Understanding how the meaning of a reading changes once you start involving more than one card can be tricky. This will come with time and practice, however I hope this guide on what your cards might be telling you when you draw Death and Queen Of Swords has helped you.
