Page of Swords

Card Meaning
Artistic Media
Artist's Bio


The page of swords is receiving the sword she or he has asked for, from either the gods, their higher self, or the source itself. The page is kneeling down upon grassy rock, surrounded by water which is reflecting the dark clouds above. The orange sunset is in the sky and above the light the grey neutral clouds are surrounding the sword of mental clarity as it falls.


The swords are the swords from the aces of swords, being dropped from the hand in the sky that offers it. One might think of this person as an earth style of joan of arc, asking for strength to do what she must. One could see this card as a young brave upon a vision quest and recieving his vision which is the path of the sword as opposed the path of the building earth. The dark clouds represents the tumoil of the mind of the page. The dark water represents the emotions in turmoil as well. The orange yellow light and rays of the sunset are the creative mental powers of the mind of the page. The dress and skirt are purple to represent cosmic awareness and what the page is basing his desires upon. The belt is a lighter shade of purple, circles representing the cosmic snake taken form in manifestation. The tunic and arms of the tunic represent the earth colours the page is manifesting, and the red head band represents the ancient Mandowin native tradtion of the Ojibwe. The sword is yellow to represent the mental body and the power of will, and it is surrounded by the neutral one might think however it is really both yin and yang, black and white combined harmoniously that follows the path of the sword. The reason why the green canoe looking energy is needed to break through the turmoil, for it represents the love of the page attracting the sword to page, from he who holds the mysteries to give to whoever truly desires it.

Card Meaning

Upright, it represents taking up the sword, by receiving its wisdom and learning how to use it. The reader is asked to remember Braveheart and William Uncle telling Williaim "first use this" and he points to the head, "then I will teach you to use this" as he points towards the sword. This also represents the innocent and excitement of learning how to defend oneself. and the deeper knowledge of training one's mind and will power.

Reversed, it means the earth is in conflict with air, your body or physical life is in conflict with your mind or strategies and that is because the extreme is given to one or the other. The reader is asked to attempt to balance them out or they might use what is for defending and protecting the one they love for bloodshed and destruction.
