Page of Swords

Page of Swords: Minor Arcana

Description: Youth stands atop a hill holding a sword upright while he looks the other way. The sky is blue with clouds. A flock of 10 birds fly in the distance.

My thoughts: The youth seems to have his head in the clouds, not looking what he is doing. He seems impulsive, yet thoughtful. Pages traditionally symbolize messengers. Swords symbolize wisdom.

Traditional meaning: Authority or overseeing of projects, vigilance or spying.
Reversed: More evil side of these qualities. That which is unforeseen. Being unprepared. Could also mean sickness.
