The Page of Swords

There are those who follow the crowd, walk the path that others have made, and there are the trendsetters, the rebels, pioneers, and risk-takers. 

Every exciting project, invention and development started with a new idea. Individuals who dare to try a different way, plough a new furrow. Onlookers interpret their actions as a little foolish or naïve, disrespecting the elders, snubbing tradition for the new way. But the Page’s thoughts are rooted within the outcome he desires. For his mental skills and wisdom defy his age, his efforts haven’t been tempered by bad experiences, loss, or failure. 

Without those who are prepared to try something new, then progress would be painfully slow, if at all. Life would be full of individuals who submissively recite and repeat other people’s ideas and beliefs. For there is an unwanted imposter that accompanies change, our most effective teacher disguised in the gift of fear. When these events are often our most powerful lessons and means of progression. 

Don’t listen to those who try to steer you away from risk or change, pepper you with negative warnings if you rock the boat, or row against the tide. Like a bird trapped within a cage, have the courage to open the door, free your thoughts, try something new. Don’t waste your precious time defending or justifying your ideas. Trying to convince those who may be overly wedded to the system or trapped by their own vices or fears.

The Page within this emotionally charged card is shown in a pose of contemplation. One of those vital times when we need to collect our thoughts before we act. For he’s leaving old ways behind, relationships and situations that serve him no more, memories that bring a tear of sadness to his eyes, but he knows he must let go of the past, old ways to fully commit to the future. While the future is less certain, he understands that his happiness lies beyond the inner struggles he faces and battles today. 

The message is clear, be like the Page of Swords, take the first step, act courageously and decisively, with confidence and assurance, and in doing so, you’ll be securing and creating the most effective future possible.
