Additional Interpretations

“Messages of a fact-finding nature. Young, intelligent individual. A flair for secrets and spying. Individual with an impressive network that can relay information.” 2

“As a Message: Page of Swords signals messages relating to information or problems. It is sometimes about illness and often rumor or gossip. When the querent gets the Page of Swords, they should be warned to check it out. They should not pass on the message until they’re sure it’s true. Swords are words and thoughts, and neither may have any validity behind them.

As Time and Environment: This is a time of new ideas and thoughts. They not only seem new, but unique, special, and there is a great deal of chatter, talk, and discussion. It may not be very mature, but it is rapid and developing fast.

As a Child or ‘Child-like’ Person: You can’t shut up the Page of Swords. They want to know everything, be told everything, and, even more alarming, anything they hear, they’ll repeat. This is the child that will go up to Aunt Hazel and say, ‘Are you carrying a baby? Mommy says it looks like you are….’ This card could warn the querent that they or someone else might blurts out something they heard that they shouldn’t be blurting.

On the positive side, this child or child-like person could be quite a prodigy, good at puzzles, quick to learn. The card can signal absorbing new information quickly, or solving problems fast, also using a computer.

Warn the querent, however, that being ‘immature’ this person will be prone to argue. Not only is there a risk of this Page/Swords being a tattletale, but they tend to think they know-it-all when they don’t. This can be a card about boasting, gossip and lying, either knowingly or unknowingly.” 3

“Meaning: Authority, overseeing, secret service, vigilance, spying, examination, and the qualities belonging to these activities. An indiscreet person will pry into the Querent’s secrets.

Reversed: More evil side of these qualities; what is unforeseen, unprepared state; sickness is also intimated.” 1

Axank’s Dream Recollection

November 8-9, 2011
I remember going to this rich girl’s party (I know this girl in real life, and she’s filthy rich). I’m sure it was supposed to be a halloween party. I got into a fight with some guy because he for some reason needed to attack me (verbally). So I fought back, <argumentative>. Some woman was trying to take me home, she took me all the way out to this dock that was very high above the water at the edge of a cliff and her husband was flying a plane onto the water to pick her up—it was really intense. I ran away when I had the chance.

My in-sleep-notes indicate something about painting cookies with glaze frosting, so good thing I remembered the actual dream I had!
