With the Swords being an air element, they typically represent one of the astrological signs Aquarius, Gemini or Libra.

Here we see a mature woman. Often she has brown hair and eyes. She is most likely the astrological sign Aquarius (January 20 - February 19), but she could also be one of the other air signs. She is mental, analytic, scientifically minded, objective, factual, ingenious, a perfectionist and sometimes discriminating, independent and cold. She can often be found as a scientist, secretary, analyst, researcher, editor, computer programmer, astrologer or numerologist. This is a quick witted woman who may represent a widow or someone who cannot bear children. She may be in mourning for someone she loved. She is strong willed,  self-reliant and determined to succeed.
