The Page of Swords can form a pair with any other court card. Compare the ranks and suits of the two cards to see what such a pair might mean.
Example: for the Page of Swords/King of Pentacles, go to [ King-Page] and [ Swords-Pentacles ]

[ King-Page ] [ Queen-Page ] [ Knight-Page ] [ Page-Page ]

[ Swords-Wands ] [ Swords-Cups ] [ Swords-Swords ] [ Swords-Pentacles ]


The Page of Swords is a messenger bringing you challenges. He suggests that an opportunity for growth may come your way in the guise of a problem or dilemma. These challenges may not be your favorites. In fact, you probably will want to say "Thanks...but no thanks."

The Page of Swords asks you to embrace these difficult situations. Think of them as trials designed to test your mettle. If you accept and prevail, you will become stronger and more resilient. In meeting these challenges, you are encouraged to use the tools of the Swords suit - honest, reason, integrity and fortitude.

The Page of Swords can also stand for a child or young-at-heart adult whose interactions with you involve truthfulness, ethical behavior, discouragement or matters of the mind. This relationship is likely to be troubled or difficult in keeping with the challenges of the Swords suit.

Sometimes the Page of Swords implies that your entire situation is one suffused with the spirit of learning, discovery, and mental activities of all kinds. At such times, use your mind and enjoy the delights of the intellect.
