I have to agree that, at first glance, this looks more like a scene from Spring Breakers or Baywatch (depending on your frame of reference) than like the Queen of Swords. Two scantily-clad young women on a beach play tug-of-war with a short rope. It's a beautiful day, with the sun shining through light clouds. The redhead, whose expression we can see, looks very intent.
Trying to dig a little deeper, we could see both figures as aspects of the Queen. That would suggest she wrestles with ideas and tries to look at both sides of any question :) Still, this doesn't really give a sense of the sharpness of wit or the deep empathy that I normally associate with this archetype.
I guess another thing that the two figures might suggest is the more socially oriented side of the Queen of Swords. She is not as isolated and as determined to be in the right as the King, making her more open to an exchange of ideas. Altogether, not my favourite card in the deck, but I can work with it ;)
I finally contacted my college last night about getting an extension on my dissertation. Maybe I need to get on with some reading, finish the protocol, and calculate some kind of timeline and strategy for getting it done if they give me the extension - good swords-y pursuits :D
I am grateful for a logical mind.
