About Page of Swords Tarot Card

Upright Page of Swords

Traditionally known as The Page and sometimes referred to as the Princess in modern decks, the Page of Swords represents a messenger or diplomat. This individual is tasked with conveying messages between different groups, not as a servant, but more as a skilled negotiator in sensitive situations.

Often seen as the eyes and ears of their patron, the Page can also be seen as a watchman or even a spy, holding the power to influence outcomes by how they handle sensitive information. There’s an element of secrecy to this role, as the Page often moves unnoticed, gathering data, potentially playing both sides for personal gain. The character’s true motives may be hidden, with dreams of one day taking control.

Reversed Page of Swords

In its reversed position, the Page of Swords suggests an overemphasis on criticism. While claiming to speak the truth, the real intent might be to highlight others’ flaws. This card advises examining one’s own biases and motives before criticizing others. Objectivity is crucial, as being overly critical can lead to conflict and undermine the message’s validity.

Page of Swords in the Advice Position

In the advice position, the Page of Swords (or Princess in some decks) calls for a subtle approach to change. Unlike situations that require visible heroism, here the emphasis is on discretion and privacy. It’s about accomplishing goals quietly, without drawing attention.

This is a time to lower your visibility and operate anonymously, even if it conflicts with your self-image. The priority is to complete necessary tasks discreetly, putting the need for privacy above the desire for open acknowledgment.”
