Learn the meaning of the Page of Swords!

If you’ve been around kids for any length of time, you know their favorite question is “Why?” This is the vibe of the Page of Swords. It’s a curious little kid wondering about the bigger world around them and trying to make sense of it all. Sometimes it feels like this energy is more about asking than investing too heavily in the answers. But when we stop asking questions, we stop learning. 

Remember, court cards don’t always refer to a specific gender or even a particular person. Sometimes they show up as a nudge from the Universe when it’s time to embody aspects of the royal in question. Traditionally, Pages represent children, but they can also represent anyone who is young at heart, like your social butterfly granny, who can make new friends at both a party and an insurance seminar. The Page of Swords is also linked to air signs, so it can represent people born under the signs of Gemini, Libra, or Aquarius, or just anyone who is quick-thinking, curious, and a wee bit talkative. 


The Page of Swords Meaning in a Love Reading 

Smarts can be hella sexy. And if you need a lover who can keep up with you in the brains department, congrats! They may have a shy vibe when you first meet them, but once you click on a personal level, expect the banter to flow fast and thick. Expect to make many discoveries while dating because your new bae loves trying new things—day trips, new restaurants, new positions—you get the idea. There’s a playful innocence to this relationship which can feel refreshing. As far as its lasting power goes, well, that’s up in the air. The easy communication can def help give you something to build on, which is a plus. 

If you are already in a long-term relationship, seeing the Page of Swords turn up in a love reading can indicate a break in a rut. You and your lover may discover something new that you have in common, like a new hobby or interest. It can also point to the two of you needing to work together (aka actually talking to each other) to take on some sort of challenge, usually involving deeper thinking or problem-solving. Either way that can lead to better communication and a deeper connection between you.    

If the Page of Swords shows up reversed in a love reading, expect pettiness and sit-com level miscommunication. Somebody may be jumping to conclusions without having all the facts in front of them. Unexpected coldness could give your budding relationship frostbite. If you want to hold on to your lover, you will need to set aside any impulses to act childishly and make time for real talk about what’s going on between you two. 


The Page of Swords Meaning in a Future Reading 

All of the pages are associated with the idea of messages, so seeing the Page of Swords turn up in a reading might mean that you’re about to get an unexpected text, email, or phone call. The message might be from a friend or family member looking to reconnect, but it could also be about travel, a legal situation, or a sudden change of plans. The Page can also point to travel in general. So, if you’ve felt the pull to take a little vacay time, treat yo’self! 

The Page of Swords can also mean you’ll be spending more time with a youngster born under the sign of Gemini, Libra, or Aquarius, or simply a naturally chatty or curious kid. The child might also be considered gifted academically. The Page might also be nudging you to get some more mental stimulation in your life, like joining a local book club. It can also indicate a need to keep an open mind about a particular situation. Stay curious, bestie. And keep asking questions. 

If the Page of Swords comes up reversed in a future reading, it’s a red flag that people are being overly judgy or gossipy. Folks can get very stuck in their bubbles—and react less than friendly towards anyone trying to change things. If the Page of Swords came up in a position representing you, you might need to see if you are preventing your growth by being inflexible or not looking at things from another point of view. Yeah, it can be seriously uncomfortable admitting the gaps in the things we know. But making assumptions or wild mental leaps will only make things worse. Take the time to get the 411 on a situation before making any major decisions.   


The Page of Swords Meaning in a Career Reading 

Love to visit new places? Lucky you! A classic interpretation of the Page of Swords is travel. Travel may be involved if you were asking about a new job situation. If you’ve been at your job for a while, you could be taking a work trip at some point soon. You might also be asked to take some classes (either on or off-site) to develop some new job skills.  

There’s also a chance that you might need to do some troubleshooting on a work issue. Now is the time to dive into the details and see what is working and what isn’t. Sometimes what isn’t working is super obvious, but the underlying problem (and the fix) isn’t. Be prepared to play Scooby Doo and do some sleuthing in that case. Don’t jump to assumptions and stay centered on the facts. The clearer you keep your head, the sooner you’ll get through this. 

Suppose the Page of Swords comes up reversed. In that case, it’s a warning that some miscommunication has gone on—either accidentally or intentionally—and things might get a bit cray cray because of that! Get your team in the same room stat to clear the air. That should help if it were an honest misunderstanding, but keep an eye on people who have reps for stirring the pot. They could be undermining your efforts to get clarity.  

If the Page of Swords reversed comes up in a position representing you, check on your behavior. Is your energy helping or harming the situation? Address whatever is bothering you directly, not by passing around petty gossip or other low-key ways of sabotage. That kind of behavior steals a bit of your spirit every time you engage. Use this as an opportunity to clarify what you want in your work situation and make positive changes to get it.
