The winds of change are blowing! If you’ve been waiting for news, today is the day it will arrive. The page of swords is the “late messenger” who will bring a piece of information that will bring clarity to the situation. It might not be exactly happy news but it will be truthful.
In the Mythic Tarot, the Page of Swords is Zephyrus, ruler of the west winds. Zephyrus was considered mean spirited until he married Iris who is depicted on the Mythic Tarot Temperance card. Zephyrus as the Page of Swords is sometimes associated with gossip. This card brings me in mind of the number one of Miguel Ruiz’s “Four Agreements”, that is, “Be Impeccable with Your Word”. Use Temperance when speaking, thoughtless words can pierce both hearts and relationships. Once said they can’t be unsaid.= so remember what your mother used to tell you, “If you can’t say anything nice, then don’t say anything at all!”
If you find yourself in the role of messenger, make sure that the information you have is correct before you pass it on, because let’s not forget that other useful saying “Loose lips sink ships!” Whatever you put out there, always comes back and if it’s something that really does need saying, keeping Temperance in mind might help you to be truthful without being cutting.
When a Page shows up, you want to bring the best of that suit’s energy into your life. Page of Swords tells us to BE truthful, BE just, BE forthright…. BE impeccable with your word, both in clarity of thought and in clear communication with others.
