The Page of Swords, like all Pages, is concerned with everyday activities. A highly vigilant youth might be indicated, or the card could address the beginning stage of a project that’s being watched very closely. If representing a person, this is someone with the utmost integrity and an unfaltering love for the truth. Mental proficiency, truth and justice are the values the Page of Swords lives by.
Highly idealistic, this Page is every bit as perceptive as the Queen of Swords, but lacks her experience. In some cases a prodigy might be suggested. It’s a good idea to be mindful of your privacy when dealing with this Page, because the Page of Swords LOVES to talk and sometimes indiscriminately repeats what she’s heard. This is an excited person, full of energy and eager to push out into the world.
A roaring wind assails the Page of Swords, similar to the windstorm shown in the Knight. Energy in both of these cards is turbulent, suggesting that they speak directly to challenges. When appearing in the present, for example, the Page of Swords might suggest it advisable to investigate the legitimacy of an offer. The integrity of former actions is brought to mind when this card shows in the past. Another person is most likely to be represented by the Page of Swords when it appears in the future. When this Page mingles with multiple royals of Cups in a reading, it’s a sign that telling the truth about something is likely to bring great relief.
Unrealized Potential: This Page can signify an immature person who challenges authority at every turn. She is a tattletale, a gossip, and an annoying know-it-all. She lies compulsively. Hyper-vigilance may be indicated.
