The Page of Swords card suggests that my power today lies in promise. I am bright, edgy, curious and articulate and am developing respect and competence through preparation and practice. I am anxious to be tested or challenged -- but I am not afraid to question authority or participate in the latest craze. I am a perpetual student of learning and try to think before I speak or act. I am empowered by confrontation or opportunity and my virtue is self-restraint.
Swords are cards of words and ideas. Truth and justice are the highest ideals. We all politely nod in their direction and live up to them when it is easy, but the Page of Swords shows a challenging wind blowing towards you in a new way. Court cards (Pages, Knights, Queens and Kings) all depict an individual alone. You will be isolated in your moment of deliberation. The Page of Swords is a card that can underscore your character through your actions for years to come. The outcome may not be pretty, but the strength to your personhood that the result of this challenge brings is unmistakable.
