Ever wondered what the Page of Swords and Seven of Cups Tarot Combination means?
Sometimes, when deciding what to write on my blog, I look at the search terms people have used to find my site. Tarot card combinations appear to be what most people are after interpretations for. Being able to relate two or more tarot cards to each other is often one of the hardest parts of learning the craft. Mostly the learning comes through practice, and in the initial stages of using tarot, feedback from the person you’re reading for. If, however, you’re reading for yourself, comprehending what those two cards mean together can be incredibly tricky.
The ‘Page of Swords and Seven of Cups Tarot Combination’ is a search term someone used recently, and if this person was reading for themself, I can fully understand why they’d need a little help understanding its meaning.
The Page of Swords is a fascinating and complex card, but with this combination I don’t need to go into a whole variety of potential meanings, because I have the modifying cards, The Seven of Cups.
The Page of Swords is a court card, so as a personality or character tarot card, we can quickly understand that he represents either the questioner, or someone in the questioner’s life. For this example let’s say that it’s someone the questioner knows.
The tarot suit of Swords symbolise mental activity. Thinking. The Page of any tarot suit represents the young energy. This doesn’t necessarily mean that the person is young age wise, but that they have a youthful approach, or are learning the skills represented by the suit. So here, with the Page of Swords, the individual is learning to use the processes of thinking and discriminating. Bring to mind any child you know, and you’ll quickly see that a youngster practising their mental abilities tends to try it on and test their luck. How far can they push you? Can they outsmart you? What happens if they tell an untruth, or an outright lie? They aren’t necessarily using their mind in the same way that we, as adults, will. It’s all a bit of a game.
A picture of the Page of Swords is emerging. He’s a mental gymnast! He’s not always honest and is usually very smart, because he uses his mind in ways we never thought possible.
Next let’s look at the Seven of Cups. Cups are all about emotions and emotional desires. Seven is a number of abundance and potential. Put the two together and you can see that the Seven of Cups is all about latching onto emotional potential. It’s the tarot card of wishful thinking and daydreaming of what we would like. There’s no action in this tarot card, only dreamy desire.
Now if we put the two card together we can see that we have a person with a monkey mind daydreaming. This is a fantastic tarot combination for anyone involved in the creative arts. Okay, so they haven’t put pen to paper yet, or picked up their paintbrush, but they have a truly inventive way of viewing the world. If, however, this is a romantic question we’re asking, then everything goes steadily downhill. Fast! The Page of Swords isn’t necessarily lying, but he’s definitely fantasising.
When asking about a lover this tarot combination starts to spell trouble. The Page of Swords influenced by the Seven of Cups will promise you the world, and mean it: but they won’t be able to deliver. They’ll have huge ideas for your future together, but won’t necessarily be able to get their act together. At some point you’ll confront them and say, ‘But you said that you’d make a million.’ Well, in their dreams they did. They may also aggrandise who they are and what they have to offer you in life. No, they’re not lying, just imagining themselves to be more than they are.
The worst scenario is if you’re asking about getting involved in a business with this person. They have a zillion plans, a billion brilliant ideas, and are apparently smart enough to make it all happen. Wrong. They’ll sit there and dream the dream, talk the talk, but never get round to acting.
If you’ve had this tarot card combination appear in your reading I’d love to hear from you. How did The Page of Swords and Seven of Cups turn out for you?
