The page of swords is the archetype of a student, always willing to learn, and probably doesn’t know everything yet. This can also be a messenger, so keep your eyes open.
I suggest, while looking at this card description, you have your tarot deck in front of you and decide for yourself if you agree with the feelings on this page or if the card represents something entirely different to you.
