Interpreting The Page of Cups

The Page of Cups is the first of the four court cords attached to the Suit of Cups. Like all court cards, Pages can have a number of different interpretations depending on where they fall in the tarot spread and the nature of the exact circumstances being addressed. They can represent a person, an event, or a single aspect of your own self. The Page of Cups will most likely do this in regards to the areas of creativity, youth, or childlike innocence. As is the case with all the cards in the Suit of Cups, the page's energy is always of a type that is strongly connected to intuition, unfettered expression, and the power of emotion in its purest and most natural state.

When the Page makes an appearance in a tarot spread in representation of a person, he stands for someone who is a true romantic at the very core of his or her being. For this reason, it is not at all uncommon for the person indicated to be a young person or even a child. He also often is the card that surfaces when a highly creative or expressive individual is indicated in a given situation. This would be an individual who has a rather dreamy demeanor and can be somewhat childlike as well. However, don't make the mistake of thinking that this is necessarily an ineffectual person or a fool, because he is anything but. This is someone who very much has strong roots of his or her own. They are simply the type that involves the spirit, the emotions, or creative expression in some way, shape or form.

When heralding an actual event, the most likely possibility suggested by this card is an event that is somehow tied to children because of the Page's own inherent childlike nature. Birth and unexpected pregnancy are common examples. However, new beginnings of all kinds can also be indicated - budding relationships, for instance (especially of the romantic variety) and fresh starts or transitions to the next level for existing relationships. These events can be hoped for or planned for events that have been brought about through the querent's own efforts and hard work, but they're far more likely to be unexpected surprises or windfalls instead.

Any card that can represent an actual person within the context of a tarot spread can also represent the querent's own self or an aspect of such. When the Page of Cups makes an appearance in this context, he is signaling a need for the querent to get in touch with his or her more intuitive, creative side in one way or another. This could be meant in a more literal sense and be referring to a creative project or an aspiration of some sort that has been on the querent's mind. It can also apply in a broader sense, as a reminder to not let the realism and pragmatism that life so often requires smother the ability to dream and to hope. The surrounding cards will give the reader more information as to the specifics of what is meant by the Page's appearance.
