Upright: Talkative, curious, mentally restless, energetic
Reversed: All talk and no action, haste, undelivered promises
The Page of Swords shows a young man standing in the midst of rough terrain with a sword held in both hands. The sky is filled with turbulent clouds and the trees in the background are obviously wind-blown, as is the young man’s hair. The waters behind the Page are rough and the general feeling of this card is one of tumultuous energy.
This card shows you as a young and idealistic person, with lots of plans and ideas for the future. At this moment, you feel as though you could do almost anything. As a Page, you are just beginning to make your way in life, and it is important that you align with others who will not overwhelm you or stifle your direction and ideas. Instead, seek to align yourself with people who will nurture your ideas and will help you to manifest them in an organised manner.
The downside of the Page of Swords is the turbulent nature of intellectual discovery and inspiration unchecked by experience or wisdom.
Reversed, the Page of Swords can suggest you are acting hastily, without thinking things through properly. You have a lot of energy behind you to get things moving but the way you are going about it is not an effective use of your energy. Tackle things one at a time, rather than trying to deal with everything at once. This will lead to more meaningful outcomes.
The reversed Page of Swords can also be all talk and no action. You have to be very careful of making promises that you know you cannot keep, or saying things that you later regret.
