If the Page of Swords reversed appears in a Tarot spread as a person, that means that this person may have an unhealthy preoccupation with information that they’re not entitled to know. This may indicate somebody who has a tendency to stalk, snoop, or gossip. Because this is a Minor Arcana card, some of these traits will not be inherent aspects of their identity. If they are behaving unfavorably, they might just be going through a temporary phase. It may be a behavioral pattern that they can still unlearn, if they choose to. Good or bad, nobody is perfect, and people can use their free will to change for the better.

The only difference is that they express it in a more negative and aggressive way. For example, both the upright and the reverse page might be interested in ethical consumption. However, the reversed Page of Swords may embrace this “ethical” lifestyle for unethical reasons. For example, they may do it for clout on social media, to feel morally superior, or other insincere reasons. If they are a true believer, they may be overly aggressive in forcing their beliefs onto others.

They typically exhibit the more immature shadow sides of the Swords signs. Like a Gemini, they can be humorous, but also mean-spirited. Like a Libra, they can be shallow and judgmental. Like an Aquarius, they can be cold and detached, uncaring of others’ feelings.
For careers, the Page of Swords reversed can represent someone who works as a field where the truth is valued and sought after, but this person may have a twisted way in manifesting that energy. They may become overly arrogant, or even bigoted when it comes to defending what they believe to be the truth. For example, this could be the aspiring scientist who dismisses and invalidates anything that hasn’t been scientifically proven yet. Not only does this reflect a lack of professionalism, it also limits their ability to make new discoveries. Alternatively, they could be very dishonest at work. This card may also signify a creative block or stagnancy.
