Tarot: The Page of Swords in Love Readings
The Page of Swords can indicate that one or both of you are upset about someones recent actions. Because the Page of Swords is on rough terrain, swinging his sword into the heavy wind, and because his nature has to do with messages and communication, many often see him as an indicator of a heated argument on the way.
Likewise, he could also indicate a heated argument that recently happened.
Sometimes, the Page of Swords, who is a messenger in his very nature, can indicate that someone has a bone to pick, and they are getting ready to interrogate you, or that you are ready to slice open the problems you've been having with your partner.
This is often driven by the Page of Swords need to seek the truth and fight for justice. The only problem, is that he hasn't acquired enough experience to make sound judgments about situations, which often leads him to speak before he thinks, and to seek answers based only on his pseudo-rational analysis.
Often, the Page of Swords shows up not to indicate a person, but to indicate certain characteristics that the querent is seeing in the person. The page of swords is a young lad (or at least young at heart), who really appreciates his freedom and independence. He's practical, and likes to survey the land around him before choosing an action. Often, because of his nature, he can seem very distant at times. In a land so far away that not even his beloved can reach him.
This card can also indicate the same characteristics in a female partner, though this would often be indicated by a reversed card.
Lack of Intimacy
Just as with the "distant partner", the Page of Swords can sometimes be representing a lack of intimacy in the relationship, due to one or both partners analyzing things to much. It may be that they are loving too much with their mind, and not enough with their whole selves. Either way, this will be easily identifiable to the querent, or to yourself. This interpretation can be validated by the:
- Devil Card
- Reversed Lovers
- Reversed Two of Cups
Hark! You have a message!
The pages are known to be the messengers of tarot. Like their brothers the Knights, they are all about communication. Being of the swords suit, this particular page represents messages through action. Which means that you have a message coming your way, or that you will hear some news in relation to your love question. Sometimes though, the Page of Swords indicates that it will be a non-verbal message, or that it won't be so cut and dry as a letter or clear note.
If you've been waiting for a potential (or current) lover to call, the page might indicate that they will call, or that they are at least thinking about it. It might also indicate that they aren't good with phones and will just show up.
