The Page of Swords Tarot Card Description
The Page of Swords Tarot card shows a young man holding his sword up to the sky. His sword points to the sky as if in this way it wants to point to the divine truth that omnipresently surrounds us because no matter where the tip of the sword points, creation is present everywhere.
His body and sword move in the same direction while he turns his head to the opposite side, as a sign of his curiosity for the things that are around him and not only for the given path.
Although equipped with a sword, he otherwise wears only a light robe that allows him to move and advance freely, rather than heavy armor that would only hinder him on his way.
A strong breeze blows through the man’s hair and the looming clouds in the background convey an energetic dynamic inherent in this card.
The young man does not seek shelter from the wind but allows himself to be completely taken in by it and looks with curiosity at the changes it brings.
With his double-edged sword, where one side stands for his sharp mind and the other for his intuition, he can part the clouds of illusion and get a glimpse of the truth behind them.
Above the clouds appears a flock of birds coming from far away, symbolic of new ideas and impulses.
The background also appears very lively and fertile, showing that the young man’s quest for knowledge and his curiosity will soon bear fruit that he will enjoy.
The Page of Swords Tarot Card Meaning
The Page of Swords is a card of departure and putting your own ideas into practice. You have already collected many good ideas in your head, which are just waiting to enrich your life.
Put your ideas into action and plan very concrete steps to implement them. Some ideas will turn out to be wonderful enrichment for you and your environment while others may disappear again.
In any case, by bringing new impulses into your environment, you will gain a lot of knowledge and experience on how to manifest your wishes and dreams in the real world.
Another meaning of the Page of Swords is that you should keep and develop your natural curiosity.
Although we humans have already accumulated a lot of knowledge about our environment, there are still countless secrets and surprises in everyday life waiting to be discovered.
By following the example of children, for whom our world is one mystical place where a new surprise is waiting around every corner, you will look at your environment with completely different eyes.
Don’t just look at the obvious path ahead of you, but also consider the things happening behind you or hiding in the little nooks and crannies along the way. Use your natural curiosity to expand your intuitive knowledge of the world and try your hand at new things.
The Page of Swords Tarot card encourages you to seek the truth and increase your knowledge of your outer and inner world.
In the search for truth in life, you are often exposed to deceptions that, like clouds in the sky, hide the light of the sun.
Use your intuition and your mind as a double-edged sword to part the clouds of illusion and glimpse the truth that lies behind them.
Just like a sword, you must regularly sharpen your mind and intuition so that you can dispel even the most stubborn illusions around you and gain new knowledge.
The Page of Swords Reversed card symbolizes that various deceptions hinder you on your life path. Illusions can seem helpful at first when we don’t want to face an unpleasant truth.
However, just as the wind sweeps away even the strongest cloud formations, every illusion will eventually vanish and reveal the truth in the long run.
Instead of waiting for the disappointment to come, you should boldly move forward and face the uncomfortable truth. That will make it easier for you to adapt to the new truth and actively deal with it.
Another aspect of the Page of Swords Reversed is that you often react to life’s challenges too hastily and without thinking. You act only out of your momentary feelings and inner instincts, which is why you often overlook the long-term consequences of your actions.
When facing a difficult challenge, use your inner instinct and mind to respond well.
Your intuition and mind together are like a double-edged sword, a powerful weapon with which you can defend yourself against any obstacles in life.
That’s why it’s often better to take a deep breath and take your time before acting rashly.
In a Tarot reading, the Page of Swords Reversed reveals that you seem very pompous to other people.
While you have a great thirst for wisdom, you also like to flaunt your knowledge without being asked, thus annoying rather than impressing those around you.
By frequently interrupting your conversation partners and questioning their positions and opinions down to the smallest detail, your counterpart gets the feeling that you want to show him up to look better yourself.
Present your knowledge only where it seems appropriate or you when people ask for it. This way your environment will appreciate you as an inquisitive but still attentive interlocutor.

In a partnership, the Page of Swords Reversed Tarot card means that your partner is very arbitrary with you and thus hurts your feelings.
