They likely abhor injustice and abide by the rules but at the same time, but can come across as blunt or insensitive although they do not intentionally mean to cause harm. They can also be introverted or a bit of a loner. These people may fall under the air sign such as Libra, Gemini, or Aquarius. 


Love Meaning

As a person, the Page of Swords love meaning reflects a curious intellectual who carries an anxious energy. In relationships, they may be scared of emotional confrontations which lead to being completely avoidant when faced with them. On the other end, one partner may feel that their emotional needs are not being met. This unbalanced communication pattern often signals small, petty disputes with your partner which escalate into huge conflicts. 


The Page of Swords can also represent your relationship with a person who is exploring their ability to communicate and share ideas. As the Swords often express a level of tension or conflict, you may have your moments with this Page. Sometimes their energy may feel like it is too much to handle. If you need, give yourself a break from this person to allow yourself to think thoroughly about how you feel. They may have a lot to share with you and despite their inexperience, they may teach you something about yourself. It is important to stay open to their enthusiasm in order to learn more about the world.


Money and Career Meaning

The Page of Swords indicates that you will find fulfillment and great success in the current position that you hold, so hold on to this career, as it is definitely the right fit for you at this time. The skills you are currently learning and experience you are retrieving from your current work position will be extremely valuable when you venture out on your own path. 


Due to your childlike optimism, you would benefit greatly to take the advice of someone wiser in the financial world, such as a professional advisor or a mentor to help guide you. 

Because this card stands for honesty, you will find yourself in positions where you’re required to speak up–for yourself and others.

Though she may be gifted with a sharp mind, she may use her wit to deceive and manipulate. Full of youthfulness, she may lack maturity, lashing out at little things and not understanding the suffering she causes to others. 

 

 The sword that she holds proudly may be used to create pain rather than to protect. Inexperienced with the weight of a Sword, the young Page of Swords wields this gleaming symbol of communication with pure excitement.

Although she is gifted with incredible communication skills, she may use those skills for vindictive purposes such as spreading malicious rumors or gossip to cause trouble. The Page of Swords guards herself from the feedback others give, which stunts her development. She may be giving false promises as well as being too guarded or vigilant. 

It can signify the need to think before speaking and to be mindful of others, for you may be damaging your reputation. Although you may declare a need to state the truth, a primary urge may be to recount another’s shortcomings. This suggests you should be conscious of how you may come across to others and only challenge or question those ideas that are important to you. 

The Page of Swords reversed can also mean that you are rushing through things too quickly, without thinking things through. Telling you that you need to tackle things one at a time rather than trying to manage everything all at once. Slow down, think things over thoroughly because doing so will lead to more meaningful outcomes.
