Page of Swords

Interpretation

Page of SwordsThe Page of Swords is a young person (or someone young at heart) with a great deal of air (Gemini, Libra, or Aquarius) in their chart. The pages represent the immature expressions of their element. That immaturity can manifest as defensiveness and suspicion, or as hunger for new ideas.

If you receive the Page of Swords, expect some mental challenges. Pages represent fresh starts, and swords suggest you have to be ready with a quick wit. Stay alert!

Minor Arcana

Eight of Rods (Clubs, Wands, or Staves): The Page of Swords in combination with the Eight of Rods (Clubs, Wands, or Staves in other decks) suggests a message; especially one related to difficulties, contracts, legal matters, or gossip; may play a key role in events.

The Suit — Swords or Spades

The sword cuts and dissects. Swords represents the element of air. They are intellect. They are double-sided, which allows them to both damage and heal. The images in the suit might be alarming to some, but they are not simply aggressive. Yes, we can use blades to inflict pain, but we also use them to carve, shave, and trim.

The Rank — Page (or Princess)

Traditionally, pages represent young people under the age of 21. Energetically, the pages are messengers, students, or catalysts. These cards play more of a supporting role in a spread.
