What does 5 Of Swords and Page Of Swords mean together for your health?

The 5 of Swords and the Page of Swords tarot card together mean that you are in a state of health where someone is abusing you. It could be a physical or emotional type of abuse, but either way it is taking a toll on your mental and physical health and wellbeing. The 5 of Swords is often associated with bullies, theft, violence and abusive relationships while the Page of Swords is associated with curious kids, gossip, spies, prying eyes and truth.

The combination of these two tarot cards suggests that someone may be watching or taking advantage of you in some way, or that you are faced with a situation in which you feel vulnerable and powerless. The 5 of Swords in particular warns that you may be in an unhealthy, oppressive relationship or situation, one in which you are not in control and are not able to stand up for yourself.

The Page of Swords suggests that you should take a closer look at the truth of the situation, confront it head on, and be honest about your feelings and needs. It is important that you take responsibility for your choices and stand up for yourself, rather than allowing others to take advantage of you in any way.

It may be time to reassess the relationships in your life, and consider if they are healthy and worth the effort.

The meaning of the cards will depend on what kind of reading you are doing and the question you asked the deck. This is a guide covering the general meanings of the cards and how they relate to each other.

Common 2-card spreads

Whilst it’s great to know who these two cards interact with each other, it’s important to note that the meaning will depend on the context of your spread

The most common 2 card spreads I recommend to newer readers are:

  • The 2 card cross (otherwise known as “The Fool’s Journey”)
  • The 2 card “Yes or No”

“The Fool’s Journey”

Setup: The two card cross is where you place two cards face up, one placed vertically and with one laying horizontally over

Interpretation: The 2 cards represent a “situation” and a “challenge”. The first card will describe the situation you are in with the second horizontal card being the “challenge” crossing you (literally crossing you in this case!)

Reading: Using the overviews in this guide is a great way to start. First, look at the meanings of the 2 cards, and see how they might relate either as your “situation” or “challenge”. Once you have that you can look at the general overview for how the two cards interact with each other.

The benefit of this spread is that it can give clarity when you’re feeling uncertain or anxious. Once you have clarity of thought, and a strong idea of what your challenge is you can find solutions to help your situation

The 2 card “Yes or No”

Setup: The 2 card “Yes or No” is where you place two cards face up side by side, whilst asking your deck a “yes or no” question.

Interpretation: Each card in a tarot deck has a “yes” or a “no” meaning. Look at the meanings of each card, and you will have your answer.

The benefit of this is you get a stronger yes or no compared to a single card draw. You may find you often get a mix of “yes or no”, and this is fine. It simply means there is doubt, or things are not yet clear.

Yes or No meaning

Things are a bit tricky for this combination, as 5 Of Swords and Page Of Swords mean different things. The cards are unsure about your question, or the answer to the question has not yet been decided.

The “Yes” and “No” meanings can differ from reader to reader. The meanings here are based on what I believe are the generally accepted definitions.

It is also associated with feeling taken for granted, being unable to make progress financially, and having difficulty staying on top of debts and bills. Relationships: The 5 of Swords Tarot card represents a lack of trust and mutual respect in a relationship, as well as a lack of communication. It suggests that someone’s needs are not being met in the relationship and they may feel powerless to make the changes they need.

This card can also signal a lack of sympathy in the relationship and a lack of support.

What does Page Of Swords mean?

Health: The Page Of Swords tarot card symbolizes a change in attitude or approach to health. It could indicate the need for a person to become more curious about their health.

Other accompanying cards in the reading could suggest further action or guidance toward achieving improved health.

Finances: The Page Of Swords tarot card could mean that someone has been relying too heavily on luck and chance when it comes to their financial achievements. This card encourages the person to be more proactive with their money, to be more strictly aware of their spending and saving habits, and to use their intelligence and knowledge to access new financial opportunities.

Relationships: The Page Of Swords tarot card suggests that the person may need to step back and look at their relationships with a more critical eye.

The card encourages the person to be watchful and to not allow their emotions to cloud their judgement.
