Page of Cups Tarot Card Meanings
An easy way to remember the Pages is to consider the Royal Courts of old, when children served as Pages, running errands and delivering messages between courtiers.
For clarity in readings, the Pages are the only Courts I use that have the possibility of two meanings, either to represent messages coming in, or as children.
The Page of Cups represents news or messages of an emotional nature, not necessarily concerning love and romance but news that will be felt on an emotional level. This is usually news of a positive nature, unless surrounded or followed by less favourable cards.
As the personality description for a child, the Page of Cups would be thoughtful, caring, gentle, sensitive (sometimes overly so) and feel things deeply, they don’t tend to be as carefree or rough-and-tumble as the Page of Wands, for example. Not having achieved the maturity of their element as yet, they can be shy or unsure of themselves, so tend to hang back or can be a little clingy. Usually polite, quite sweet, and well-behaved, they like to please and not cause offence.
Some readers use the Courts as facets of a personality, so in this respect, the Pages suggest the newness of childhood, such as when you take up the fragile beginnings of entering a new field, you enter with a childlike state.
Similar or supporting cards: As messages, all the Pages, Eight of Wands, Six of Wands.
Opposing or contradictory cards: Page of Swords (delayed news, or minor disappointment)
Tarot Card Combinations: As messages coming in, in simple lines follow the progression of events, so look to the card following to see if this is favourable or what occurs as a consequence; the card preceding would show where the message originates.
