Queen of Swords reversed
Anyone think of her (reversed) as actually being indecisive? I kind of see that "great mental acuity" turning in and devouring itself...
another aspect - something not that uncommon in some Queen-of-Swords types
- the ability to really get and intuit *other* people - with a great deal of difficulty turning that great insight and intuitiveness inward. One woman talked about it like a 12-inch thick clear plexiglass barrier - where there's all this great piercing insight about OTHER people and THEIR problems/hangups, etc etc... while everyone around this (Q of S) is thinking, "Why can't this person use this sharp insight to see inside themselves??"
Some of that *could* be that rigid thinking - and a lack of openess to important feedback from others...?
There are noble and mysterious triumphs which no eye sees. No renown rewards, and no flourish of trumpets salutes. Life, misfortune, isolation, abandonment, and poverty and battlefields which have their heroes, sometimes greater than the illustrious heroes. ~Victor Hugo
