The Page of Swords may at times be awkward and overly enthusiastic, but like Gabrielle s/he is on hir way to fierce warrior-hood. In this case, the sword is not a weapon of violence, but a weapon of truth, bold ideas, and the word. The Page of Swords is beginning to understand that the word is powerful magic. As Toltec Nagual, don Miguel Ruiz teaches in his book The Four Agreements, the word is like a double edged sword, it can be used to create the most beautiful dream of heaven, or it can be used to create our own and others' hell. If we know this, we will be more careful with how we use our words and use them consciously and impeccably to create and feed love and justice.
It is important to be patient and supportive with ourselves and others during this stage of one's path. There is much to learn and gain from listening to our inner Page of Swords, or to a young (in age or in process) person in our lives who is learning how to use their voice in the world. The Page of Swords keeps us honest and connected to our purpose.
