Meaning of the Tarot Page of Swords Card:
Page of Swords
The Page of Swords is one of the minor arcana of the Tarot de Marseille. It consists of a young man carrying in one hand a sword pointing upwards and in the other a stick pointing downwards (in the version of Editions Camoin).
He seems to be standing straight in the middle of the map, his feet looking a bit like the boatman's. This young man is in an attitude of inner listening (developing strategy and plans). The ground is yellow with orange tufts of grass showing strong energy and connection.
The colours of the card are particularly balanced. They show the management of his energies and his capacity for creation. The sword pointing upwards indicates that he is ready for action. The stick he holds in the other hand recalls the sequence of sticks with the fire element and the energy that accompanies it.
