The Page of Swords

PageOfSwords

Here is the next installment in my own Tarot design project over on DeviantArt using the Miku Miku Moving program. Please let me know what you think!

Not to worry, I’ll continue to feature the series I started with in the links below.


Today we’re featuring and exploring the Page of Swords, the eleventh card of the Sword Suit in the Minor Arcana.

So take a look at these four cards on DeviantArt and compare them to the first one I presented. How are they the same? How are they different? What do they say to you?

Take your time. Let them “speak” to your soul and mind.


Themes of the Card

The Page of Swords is the eleventh card in the Swords Suit of the Minor Arcana and presents the first court card of the suit.

According to the Learning the Tarot website, the keywords associated with the card are:

  • USE YOUR MIND
  • BE TRUTHFUL
  • BE JUST
  • HAVE FORTITUDE

You can read more about this card in detail on their website here.


What This Card Means to Me

This card brings the promise of the challenge. Children, and those with the heart of a child, instinctively embrace the learning opportunities that all challenges provide. It’s how we grow and develop. Somewhere along the way, many of us as adults forget how to do this and we become stuck and stagnate.

We need to remember that being childlike doesn’t have to mean being immature, but rather meaning self learning and adaptive. If we take the time to really think about it, this is what the entire sword suit represents: learning and growth from all these challenges.

And this card promises us that we can do it if we make the honest effort and stick with it to the end.


The Music Playlist

In the spirit of all this, these are the songs picked out thus far for this card.

Do you have any songs you think should be on this list? Suggest them in the comments!


The Writing Prompt

Now as a writer with everything we’ve gone over with this card what comes to mind? Start writing! Doesn’t matter what it is. Stretch your mind and let the card speak to you.

I would love it if you linked or pinged back what you wrote so I could see where you went with this.

Happy writing!
