Tarot Series~Minor Arcana: Page of Swords

S11

When pulled upright this card is about curiosity and a never ending supply of ideas. It’s about being great at communicating. This person has a lot of nervous energy and their mind is never just empty. They always have something to think about. If this card is representing a message then it could be about gossip, legal matters, and agreements; very sword-esque topics. This card could also serve as a reminder to be alert, to keep your eyes peeled, and to stay vigilant. In addition this card could be about an idea you have that you are really eager to execute. You are really passionate about this project and you cannot wait to tell everyone the progress you’re making with it. This is definitely the time to talk about your or other people’s ideas.

When pulled in reverse this card is about using that alertness and sharpness for deceit and manipulation. Their natural gift with talking may be used negatively as they may become very hurtful. They may not totally realize the pain they are causing, whether that be from immaturity or just ignorance. They are really just focusing on how good they feel after lashing out at others. This person though could also be someone who is full of empty promises. They like to talk the talk but not walk the walk, if you will. This card reminds you to show that there is action behind your words. 

Excuse the potty talk in this tarot spread but I thought it might be relevant in helping you figure out what’s up with that reversed page of swords in your life. First I would take the page of swords out of the deck and meditate on it while thinking about that person who’s… well… being an asshole. Then shuffle and pull the cards using your preferred method.

Friendly reminder that they don’t have to be a “he”.

Tarot Series~Minor Arcana: Five of Swords

e8451e082e5bb9f8379ca8d479b048bd

When pulled upright this card is about being in a conflict. It also could be about a disagreement with someone(s) which is creating a lot of tension in your relationship with them. It may appear that you’ve won right now but when you look at the big picture you may realize that you’ve actually lost because you have damaged your relationship with this person which has now isolated you. You may find that at the time you were more concerned with being right than understanding the other person’s point of view. Now you need to try and pick up the pieces and fix this relationship you’ve hurt. The conflict is still fresh so resentment hasn’t had time to fester. You need to decide what is most important to you, winning the argument or your relationship with said person. This card is also about a negative type of ambition. This is the kind of ambition that has no regard for others. It doesn’t care who it has to knock down to achieve it’s goal. This kind of ambition can leave you either a sore loser or a sore winner and nothing in between. This card reminds us to think about others and to let go of our egos.

When pulled in reverse this card is about wanting to forgive and forget the conflict that the five of swords in the upright position is referring to. This card shows that you have started to realize that winning isn’t always everything. Because of this you will be able to take all the energy you were investing in winning and put it towards something better. There is another interpretation of this card which is that the conflict you are experiencing is going to become more upsetting as you realize you all are going to lose.

Here is a tarot spread to help you organize your thoughts on a conflict you’re experiencing. First I would take the five of swords out of the deck and meditate on it while focusing on this conflict. Then shuffle and pull the cards using your preferred method.

When pulled upright this card is about energy. All the other wands cards are about creativity but this card is about the king having an idea and implementing it himself. This card represents a natural born leader and someone who is quite capable. Once you have a goal in mind you will stick to it until it is accomplished. If you pull the king card you may look forward to challenges and enjoy solving them.

When pulled in reverse this card can suggest one may be arrogant. When pursuing your goals you may be a bit aggressive, whether you realize it or not. You may make impulsive and rash decisions. You may also be pushy and overbearing at times. It is very likely that you are not trying to make others feel submissive to you but that is what you are doing regardless. This card can also suggest you are selfish, ruthless, and/or manipulative. 

When you pull this card it may be hard to tell whether it is telling you positive or negative things about yourself. To help with this here is a tarot spread. This is great for figuring what things about your a great and what needs work. First I would take the king of wands out of the deck and meditate on it while thinking about what you think are your strong traits and your negative traits.

Tarot Series~Minor Arcana: Six of Wands

33c344834aacfe8a99fb82a8695a8bb4

When pulled upright this card is about accomplishing something that is giving you public recognition. You have reached your goals and you are being celebrated for it. You may have received an award as well. This card shows that you have found your strengths and how to use them to manifest the outcomes you want in life. The card before this (the five of wands) is a card about confusion. Pulling the 6 of wands shows that you have gotten past this confusion and have managed to achieve your goals. Although this card is mostly positive it is worth noting that a downside to this card could be that all this success is bringing self-importance, a large ego, and arrogance.

When pulled in reverse this card is about doubting your abilities and your abilities to reach your goals as a whole. You might be feeling negative about yourself because not only have you been failing yourself but you have been failing others This is telling you that you are lacking the confidence and ambition you need to achieve your goals. In order to reach your goals you need support from those around you to give you the recognition you need.

Here is a tarot spread to help you gain confidence in yourself so you can better achieve your goals. Take the 6 of wands out of the deck and meditate on your self doubts becoming your strengths. Then shuffle and pull the cards using your preferred method.
