Page of Swords

The Page of Swords (or Chick of Wind in the Penguin Tarot deck) is the messenger when it comes to the emergence of a new idea, or a need to gain knowledge, or it can represent curiosity. In fact, this card signifies communication in new ways as well. Pages are enthusiastic and even the Page of Swords shares that trait. 

When there is an idea of starting a new project, the Page of Swords represents that, for example. You have plenty of ideas coming to you that you will want to brainstorm. There is excitement in the planning process as well. But this card does not signify new creative ideas as that is shown by the Page of Wands. This is a card that represents ideas that come from something new you have learned and has given you an opportunity to develop a new way of thinking. The Page of Wands also comes to you if you are intrigued by an idea you had learned about and you just want to keep learning more and more of what you possibly can learn. You are curious, and you are exploring new ideas and gaining new knowledge. You are far away from mastery but you may be potentially on your way.

When the Page of Swords shows up in reverse, it can mean two things. Firstly, it can represent acting without thinking and haste. It can also mean that there is all talk and no action. It is very easy to talk and not implement your plans. When it boils down to implementing your plan, it can become overwhelming.
