I have a crazy theory that the Page cards represent the four Chinese Celestial Animals: Staves/dragons, Cups/turtles, Coins/qilin and Swords/phoenix. I'll be the first to admit these bird statues resemble peafowl more than a stereotypical phoenix, but it was fun trying to find evidence to the contrary. You be the judge: http://craftza.com/images/tyldwick%2...%20phoenix.jpg

In any case viewing the card "as if" it were a phoenix opens new interpretive possibilities. Like the Page, a phoenix represents the energy of new life. The Page of Swords is full of reinvigorated passion, ready to rise up and take flight.
