Learn the meaning of the Page of Swords Tarot card
The Page of Swords also known as the Jack or Knave of Swords is the first card in the Court of Swords to depict a figure. It shows a young person standing on fertile ground, holding a sword in her hands. He looks as if he is ready to use it at any moment and stand up to fight to defend his cause. On the Page of Swords, we also see billowing, bright clouds, which in this case may indicate his good luck and wisdom. There are ten birds flying above them, which are associated with chaos and fleeting ideas. The Page of Swords very often refers to a person who is younger than us, but also very intelligent and brilliant. The Page of Swords is associated with zodiac signs that are open to new experiences and learning. Although these people are honest, they can often lead to conflict in their discussions due to their impulsive nature. For this reason the Page of Swords very often foretells all kinds of exchanges of thoughts, but also analysis of issues and a flurry of thoughts that may accompany you. However, you should not forget that the Page of Swords is also the card of new ideas, concepts, and strategies.
The Page of Swords in the upright position will very often point to a person with the characteristics of this card, that is, relatively young and close in appearance. In such a situation the card will say that this person plays a key role in the matter you are asking about. The upright Page of Swords foretells the meeting of such a person, as well as the moment when he or she will take some kind of initiative or action towards you. The card may also portend an event in which you will have a discussion and clarify issues. The Page of Swords in the upright position also speaks of communication and expressing your thoughts in an honest, though sometimes overly critical, manner. It heralds new thoughts which may give rise to a plan or strategy in your mind. So the upright Page of Swords always encourages you to use logical thinking to solve current problems. However, the card in itself never foretells major changes, but rather refers to some sort of beginning, or small everyday issues. The Page of Swords in an upright position may therefore symbolize the start of schooling for children, and a new career for adults.
The Page of Swords in an upright position may indicate the beginning of a new relationship especially with a younger person or one who possesses the qualities of this card. However, the upright Page of Swords in itself may indicate a certain distance in emotional matters, as well as various kinds of delays in these matters. The Page of Swords in the upright position can also herald a meeting, a conversation, or a message that you may receive. However, it brings a lot of confusion, so clarifying problematic issues will be quite difficult with the Page of Swords in the upright position. So it is important to open yourself to understanding the other party during this time, because only sincere communication will help you come out of your current predicament. For those in a relationship the upright Page of Swords may foretell a time of conflicts and verbal quarrels. However, they will not usually have much sense, and their main purpose is often to criticize your partner or to convince him or her of your point of view. The card can also be a symbol of relationships based mainly on the intellectual rather than the emotional plane. The upright Page of Swords therefore indicates that you should remain patient in your relationships, especially if you want to meet someone new during this period.
The Page of Swords in the reversed position will very often herald conflicts or minor quarrels that may uncontrollably escalate into a great verbal battle. On the other hand, this card may indicate someone who talks a lot, but their words and promises are not reflected in actions. The reversed Page of Swords also indicates a person who is stubborn, but also very impatient. This person may be trying to prove a point or influence your point of view at any cost. The Page of Swords reversed is also having trouble learning and finding things out, which can be a sign of all kinds of delays in career or personal matters. This card reversed is also associated with malicious or even fraudulent behavior of people around you. Thus they may spread rumors, plan intrigues or spread secrets entrusted to them. You should therefore be especially cautious of people symbolized by the reversed Page of Swords who may try to manipulate you.
The reversed Page of Swords is not a good sign in love matters because it often indicates relationships devoid of deeper feelings. The Page of Swords reversed is not a good sign in love affairs because it often indicates relationships without deep feelings and instead can be dominated by malice, which in turn can cause constant conflicts and fights with your partner. The Page of Swords reversed may also indicate a lack of empathy, ungratefulness, or constant criticism that you may experience from someone close to you. The Page of Swords reversed will also portend problems in communication and understanding on all levels of relationships. The reason for this may be the lack of tolerance, but also a problem with seeing a different point of view from that of the person with the qualities of the reversed Page of Swords. For this reason this card is also a symbol of social problems, which may lead to loss of your reputation. The Page of Swords reversed is a time when it will be difficult for you to meet new people and build lasting relationships with them. The card also predicts a possibility of disappointment in emotional matters or at least bad news. The Page of Swords reversed may also indicate attempts to manipulate others or to play a game with them.
