Caught Between Reason and Desire
I tend to think of the Page of Swords as the young, intrepid explorer, out to discover the world with their sharp (but untested) mind.
This morning when the card turned up, I got a bit of a different vibe. There is something about this Page in the CBD Tarot de Marseilles deck which looks more hesitant than exuberant. Ben-Dov mentions that it represents trying to strike a compromise between reason and desire. I see this going on in the lives of some of my friends and family at the moment. May we hold them in the light.
This card can also represent learning something new. This theme fits into my life at the moment as I’ve begun to study the third major Tarot deck and system, the Thoth Tarot. I had avoided this deck for several reasons up until now, but am finding the study fascinating (perhaps even captivating) thus far. Here’s to adventure.
