Queen of Swords

Standard symbolism includes: Butterflies (or Wings), Masks, Crystal/Fractal images (Thoth), Clouds, Blue Skies.


Standard meanings include:

Water of Air. Shedding disguises/masks, private person becoming more public, solitary older woman, widow, intellectually powerful woman.


Ob. NIN reference:

Swords originally suggested for NINJA reference (2009 tour called nin|ja). In May 2009, Trent Reznor, historically extremely private about his dating life, had a very public engagement. Fiance ("mask" on left) is in a band whose name references LSD, hence "Acid Queen" ("mask" on right). Also, the first rock star to get birthday cards from me was "Acid Queen" creator, Pete Townshend (b. May 19th. Er... Pete, if you want me to start making you cards again, just ask.)


My image (top mask) is included because, ultimately, this card is more about my fandom, how I permit a famous stranger's doings to affect my own life, than it is about him. That is a mask I need to acknowledge.
