Reverse Meaning

The Page of Swords is a card that is full to the brim with energy and passion, which is usually a good thing. However, in reverse, this card suggests that this fire beneath you is causing you to act hastily without much planning or consideration for the future. You are probably trying to juggle too many things at once, your enthusiasm causing you to want to do everything right now, but you are bound to drop a few things if you’re not careful. You may be making promises that you can’t keep, simply because you can only do so much and you are bound to burn yourself out if you don’t give yourself chance to rest.
