When the Page of Cups appears, it’s a signal to allow the childlike side of yourself to come forward. Like most of the Cups suit, the Page is an uplifting and encouraging sign to receive in a tarot reading. It also can indicate that someone (likely someone who is younger than you) is coming your way before long with a message for you. In general, this card shows a need to play, to dream, to have a little fun. When this card appears, it sometimes means that you’ve been taking yourself far too seriously. Margot Fonteyn said “The one important thing I have learned over the years is the difference between taking one’s work seriously and taking one’s self seriously. The first is imperative and the second is disastrous.” Know the difference. Even if things have been lousy regarding work for the last ten years, the appearance of this card shows that there is cause for hope and positive anticipation. No matter who you are, you have professional options. Life can change on a dime, and sometimes those changes are positive. If you’re unhappy in your current work situation, know that you hold the key to changing it. A younger person may be part of your love scenario. Remember that love doesn’t know of age, don’t discount people who are younger purely on that basis! This card in the context of love can mean that someone is about to sweep you off your feet. Give them a chance. If your finances are in a holding pattern because of decisions that must be made by someone else, the appearance of this card says that the time is growing nigh. Your financial situation is likely to take a turn for the better. You may need to revisit your spiritual rituals if your traditions have begun to feel stale. It might be helpful to give yourself the time and space to consider if or where you can pursue new spiritual information that might be interesting to you. Explore. Read spiritual things from other traditions/belief systems than your own.
(Known also as the Prince of the Chariot of Waters and aligned with water signs of Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces, the Page of Cups represents emotional freedom, self-love and confidence. When this card comes up for you it is a sign that you are ready to let go of the lower emotions of the heart.)
