A Sudden Event, Searching for Intellectual Facts or Proof, Secret Knowledge
The Page of Swords is sometimes a vague card. She doesn’t necessarily come out and give you an answer, because it’s your job to dig for it, and there are lessons to be learned along the way.
This page is a perceptive or learned person. She’s an observer or searcher of knowledge. Perhaps she’s looking for facts or calculated proof which may be recorded as comments or notes, etc.
Elementary or higher education is indicated here, but this card is primarily representative of knowledge that’s difficult to come by. It requires a lot of trouble or effort to obtain this knowledge, or uncover its secrets.
So this page could be a journalist, secret service agent, examiner, inspector, police-officer, transportation conductor, or detective. Or some type of intellectual authority, or maybe a student in higher education.
This card also includes a sudden event or effect. This event is characterized as a voluntary or mutual exchange, unless the card is reversed, in which more evil or amateurish intentions might be at play.
When The Page of Swords Shows Up In A Reading
Health and Body Image: You might need a specialist to run tests or examinations, or perhaps a specialist is required to monitor your health.
Occupation and Finances: Elementary or university education, journalism, work as a spy, detective, police officer, transportation or traffic conductor – these occupations are all indicated by the Page of Swords. Some type of connoisseur or a researcher of the esoteric arts could be another possibility. Or you might need more information about a particular subject or project. Perhaps it’s time to go back to school.
Relationships: You may need to do some fine-tuned observation before coming to any conclusions about a particular relationship. Seek solid answers over speculation, such as a background check, to put any fears at ease.
Hidden Meaning: The occult knowledge of the Page of Swords allows you to get to the heart of something because it’s knowledge from the heart.
Reversed: Reversed, the Page of Swords might indicate an unfavorable unforeseen event which occurs without warning, such as an inspection, investigation, exam, or an unexpected illness, or receiving a warning from a civil servant. Or perhaps you’ve got a stalker. Or it could be a message to relax and move into something without preparing or planning it all out. It’s of the nature that requires improvisation. Let go of dogmatism and candidly flow with whatever shows up randomly or spontaneously instead of seeking out something specific. Compose and recite something as it comes.
Advice: If the Page of Swords is upright, it’s likely a message to be more mindful of something, or put more creative, inspired thought into it. Or if a sudden event occurs, you might need to do some research to get more accurate answers or results before jumping to conclusions. Take your sweet time. You might have to dig and put some serious effort into this investigation, then weigh the evidence. If you’re taking some kind of a risk, make sure it’s a calculated risk.
