Page of Cups
The Page of Cups is the Tarot card that personifies an artist. We are very imaginative, creative and emotional. We tend to become very dependent on others, which makes us vulnerable to our environment. Because of our outlandish ideas, people may think we are crazy. However, we really don’t bother what people think of us, we know we have an abundance of creative abilities and we love creative projects, whether they are in writing, music, sculpting, fashion designing or any other kind of artistic pursuit. We live in our cosy world of imagination, but most of us are gifted with the uncanny ability of turning our dreams into reality. We are also spiritually inclined, from which stems the desire to understand our true selves. We know the spiritual journey is long and arduous, but we have the requisite patience and depend on our intuition to guide us along the way. We tend to be so engrossed in our perception of the world that we often get shocked when we see that the perceptions of people around us do not match ours. This leaves us open to the danger of finding fault with ourselves all the time, and we tend to end up with the desire to keep everyone around us happy regardless of what it may cost us emotionally or materially. In a reading, this card signals an emotional resurgence, or the beginning of a new venture.
Each of the four suits of the Minor Arcana is divided further. Four Court Cards are extracted from each Minor Arcana suit, and they are classified under each category – The King, Queen, Knight and Page, signifying their specific traits. This makes the total Court Cards as 16. The King is creative, inspiring and bold, and wants to create a lasting impact on the world. The Queen is attractive, energetic, cheerful and self-assured; she does not impose, but subtly influences circumstances. The Knights may be termed as extremists, they express their qualities to the utmost limit. For instance, if they are cautious, they will be cautious to a fault, weighing all the pros and cons meticulously before taking a decision. The Page motivates us to enjoy the thrill of mental and even financial challenges.
