The Page of Pentacles is the Tarot card that exemplifies a quiet, determined and goal-oriented person. We are thoughtful, cautious and meticulous in planning and executing our ideas. We pay the required attention to detail and are very methodical. We represent the beginning of new ventures or relationships. However, we realise that these seeds of growth need to be nurtured patiently in order to flourish. Though we are very intelligent and talented, we can be choosy, and will never take up a project that we feel we may not be able to complete. We also have a touch of mysticism in our personalities, and a part of our mind is always engaged in esoteric thoughts and if we are presented a chance to study the subject, we tend to grab it. Since we are frank and friendly by nature, we tend to be very popular in our social circles. We never antagonise anyone in thought, word or deed, nor does anybody antagonise us – we get along well with everyone. In a reading, this card suggests that ideas are beginning to take shape, and reminds us that it is determination, perseverance and enthusiasm that will bring us success. It could also indicate a job offer is in the offing, or that an invitation to a new business venture is on its way.
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.
