Synopsis of the Page

The Page is a symbol that is commonly used to refer to children or youths, or perhaps those that while chronologically older, stay young at heart.

With the presence of youth, there is sometimes the misconception that there is a lack of skill or talent.

The Page indicates someone who is in the process of learning yes, but not necessarily untalented.  We all start at the beginning but only lack of practice or enthusiasm can limit our skill level.

When the Page appears, ask yourself if you still have that sense of optimism and hope when it comes to new ventures.  If the answer is no, The Page counsels you to reconnect with that inner child and look at the world with wonder again.

Upright Tarot Card Meaning:

The Page of Cups can refer to younger people with big and generous hearts. Usually gentle and very loving, imagination and creativity are a big part of their life. 

Sometimes this sensitivity can interfere with emotional stability, leading to a lot of fears and anxiety.

When the Page of Cups appears, it can be a signal for news, especially that of the happy variety.

Dreams and impressions may seem particularly vivid at this time and can herald the development of psychic and intuitive abilities.

Reversed Tarot Card Meaning:

With this Tarot card reversed, the Page of Cups can refer to someone drowning in unreality. Dreams and nightmares can cloud even the day and intuitive impulses seem fearful and strange.

It's a time where it is so easy to get caught up in the intangible, there may be some additional grounding required.

Spend some important time with some down-to-earth friends, choose tactile activities, and try to shut off your brain.

If you find yourself getting obsessed or consumed by your thoughts, remember that you have the power to control what you choose to think about.

Tarot Card Keywords:
