Page of Swords Description and Symbolism
A young page stands on a small moss covered, rocky knoll with a sword. Her body posture looks like an action pose. She looks defensive and ready to attack. Her sword looks ready to strike. Or perhaps she just finished the attack and we have caught her finishing a swing.
The wind looks like it is blowing fiercely. Her ponytail is swinging in the wind. The trees are being blown so hard that they are making a right angle. This may indicate her vulnerability. If we follow the trees in each of the swords suit, they progressively move upright. There are puffy white clouds and birds flying in the distance. The ten birds flying above her look like they form a fish. Our emotions and thoughts are intricately tied together. Ten is also the number of Malkuth. The sky is blue and otherwise clear. Bluish mountains stand in the background.
