Page of Swords from the Rider-Waite Tarot deck

Page of Swords (or Jack or Knave of Swords) is a card used in Latin suited playing cards which include tarot decks. It is part of what tarot card readers call the "Minor Arcana"

Tarot cards are used throughout much of Europe to play tarot card games[1].

In English-speaking countries, where the games are largely unknown, Tarot cards came to be utilized primarily for divinatory purposes[1][2].

Divination usage

A surefooted person who succeeds without flash. One who does not second guess decisions. Decisive action and control of oneself. The use of reason or eloquent speech to penetrate the veil of confusion and cut to the heart of the matter.

Inverted: Fear causes plans to crumble. A person who is timid and cowardly. One who allows the opinions of others to interfere with their own ambition.
