Description

The Page of Swords depicts a young man on top of a hill; with a sword, he holds with his both hands, his hair is blown by the wind. He wears a red tunic over gold-colored undergarments, and on his feet, he has red shoes. In the background; turbulent clouds, the rough sea, and the wind-blown trees are discernible; and on top of the card, there is a group of birds flying away.

Remembering that the elemental correspondence of the Suit of Swords is Air; which in turn corresponds to the mental processes, this card represents an overflowing mental energy, a restless curiosity. The color of the Page’s clothes suggests that this curiosity is also supported by passion, or hunger to learn, and the posture of the page suggests that he is ready to move.

We keep moving forward, opening new doors, and doing new things, because we’re curious and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths. 

-Walt Disney
