We have a saying here in California, “When the Santa Ana Winds are blowing, anything can happen!”
The Pages are “The Pony Express Cards” in my deck. The Page of Swords represents you or outside influences: a friend, someone who may want to court you (a potential lover), client, boss, mentor, tutor, an open enemy (someone that gossips about you to make themselves look better), or unexpected weather problems that bring communication and transportation snafus.
The Page of Swords is the messenger that delivers important messages. The Pony Express represents the unexpected box of chocolates that will be good or bad.
You’ll receive an important letter, email, text or phone message, or you’ll hear unexpected gossip, or experience unexpected weather problems, transportation problems!
The Court Cards represent significant people that will enter your life. The Page of Swords brings you into a fragile new beginning related to something unexpected. The Page is young and delivers his messages rapidly. He represents a person that is still learning, changing personalities like the wind changes directions.
The Page of Swords is on a mission to deliver messages, but also a person who might bring unwelcome trouble, when crossed by a negative card (that’s why this card brings you into a fragile new beginning because the Page of Swords is related to the affairs of unexpected snafus).
The Court card personalities are more complex because they are two-sided. The reason that I say the Page is two-sided is because the Page is young and still growing into his role as the speedy messenger (The Pony Express). The Page can go from being positive to negative in a flash. Highly intellectual, the Page feels that he is always right. The Page may be flirty or sarcastic, impatient or flighty, secretively spiteful or debating, romantically attached or shockingly independent.
The Minor Arcana represent your choices and actions throughout the realization of your destiny. The Swords represent your personal outlook and your tendency to think with your head rather than with your heart.
In Greek Mythology, you meet the wind gods and they’re associated with the north, south, east, west winds, the weather and the seasons. Zephyrus was one of the four children that came from the union of Eos (the goddess of the morning) and Astraeus (the god of the night). The wind gods resided under the command of Zeus (fate and destiny), and Aeolus was the king of the winds that worked under the direction of Zeus. Aeolus was responsible to keep the wind gods under control, but Aeolus took his orders from Zeus and sent the wind gods to create storms because Zeus gave the order.
The North, South, East, and West Wind Gods: Zephyrus was related to the west wind and the spring season, Boreas was related to the north wind and the winter season, Notus was related to the south wind and the summer season, and Eurus was related to the east wind and the fall season.
Zephyrus, the west wind god is kneeling on a cloud and expelling wind from his mouth! When Zephyrus was young, he was a rascal, testing the waters and he liked to blow unexpected gusty west winds and make storms to see what would happen. He also liked to watch what happened to the sea when he created wind storms. Zephyrus brings gossip and the unexpected west winds, the time when anything could happen!
However, Zephyrus’s rascal days changed when he met the beautiful messenger goddess that worked for the gods, and her name was Iris (the goddess of the rainbow).
My Interpretation Of The Page Of Swords Tarot Card
The Page of Swords represents the unexpected messenger, “The Pony Express” that will deliver news to you, good or bad. The Pony Express will follow through with his job to deliver this news swiftly.
The Page of Swords is enumerated eleven (11). The number eleven represents completion and a new beginning with a situation. He is on a mission, the deliverer of messages and brings unexpected messages.
The role of the Page of Swords is to deliver a message that represents a timing of an event that will happen in your life, which may be good or bad, depending on the surrounding cards.
We know the Page is swift because he dressed in the color indigo. The colors used in the Tarot have specific meanings. The color indigo consists of the colors blue and purple mixed together. The color blue represents (communication, thought and emotion) and the color purple represents (royalty). The color indigo also represents the color of a turbulent sky before a storm, so in other words, the Page moves as fast as a storm rolling in!
Look closely, at this card, and you’ll see mountains in the distance and these mountains represent a goal that is very close to achieving because the mountains are very close! The blue sky represents thought and a message that is on the way. There is a ferocious wind storm surrounding the Page and also a wind storm coming out of the Pages breath which represents that he moves as fast as a storm rolling in with his thoughts and determination.
The sky is filled with billowy white and blue storm clouds that are full of moisture, and a storm seems to be brewing that represents the Page who will bring communication, and possibly a good or bad message.
Rough, churning, turbulent blue clouds behind the Page represent his thoughts. The Page is dressed with an indigo blue tunic which represents a high achievement and victory with every step that he takes. The tension in this card is generated by the storm moving to the west which makes the Page appear defensive, expecting a confrontation.
Lastly, the challenging and intelligent Page is known as the spy who holds secrets and ulterior motives. He is a restless, independent young man waiting to reveal a message to someone, and he will be frank when he does so. He is like the Pony Express, a deliverer of both good and bad news. The Page represents the box of chocolates of life that Forest talked about. And Forest always said, “You never know what you’re gonna get.”
