Page of Cups Tarot Card Meanings for Love
This is a wonderful card for love, especially as it relates to messages or new information about love.
The Page is often a messenger, carrying a lesson that needs to be learned. A message about love will be coming over the next few weeks or months, possibly a proposal or news about a baby.
If you are looking for love or are in a relationship that isn’t as good as you’d like it to be, this card indicates things will change, but only if you do.
You must become a master of authentic communication and healthy self-security before you will be able to fully participate in a safe and secure relationship.
When meeting new people and dating, focus on being the most authentic and honest version of yourself. Listen to the information they tell you about themselves. Your goal is to learn enough about them (through what they are saying, the questions they are asking, and what isn’t being said) so you can decide whether or not they are a good fit for you. Put yourself and your desires first, then decide if they are compatible.
If your relationship is struggling, the only way out of this mess is to go through it. You’ll need to ask for, share, and receive information you may not want to hear. Be compassionate and honest. This card is usually a positive omen for love so you may hear news that is much better than you fear. But you must be the one to initiate the conversation to bring this news to light.
Page of Cups Tarot Card Meanings for Work
The Page of Cups loves for love’s sake. There is no jealousy, control, or possession. In the realms of work and career, can you say the same thing?
Do you work for the work’s sake, or do you work for the reward, recognition, and ego-boost?
Look beneath the surface of what you do and, more importantly, why you do it to find the kernel of what you want out of life. It is the start of something bigger.
If you are looking to gain experience in different areas or to pivot in your career, look for opportunities where you can volunteer to be of service to others.
Page of Cups Tarot Card Meanings for Health
The Cups rules your emotions and the Page is the youthful messenger at the beginning of their lessons.
Take a look at how you handle stressful situations and put your self-care first. You can’t take care of others if your own well is dry.
Stress sucks the life and joy out of you, leaving you as a shell of your amazing self. Prioritize your self-care. This is something only you can do and it is mandatory, not optional. This can’t be emphasized enough!
Your number one and ONLY focus needs to be on taking care of yourself. Yes, other people need you, but they need you to be healthy, whole, attentive, and present. You won’t be there for them until you take care of your own needs.
If you are experiencing physical health problems, don’t overlook your emotional support system. Much of this battle for health and healing will happen inside your mind. You’ll need to maintain a positive, hopeful attitude with faith. This is not something you can do alone.
Page of Cups Tarot Card Meanings for Money and Finances
It is time for you to focus on building your reserves for the future. Although the future seems a long way off, this is the best time to prepare.
Gather the skills, relationships, and resources you need now, before you need them.
Start small, but start now. Today. Even a $5 monthly contribution toward your savings, debt payment, or investments is enough. It won’t be $5 forever, but you have to start somewhere. This is as much about faith, practice, and belief as it is about the money. Invest in your future, because your future is going to be incredible, just like you.
Page of Cups Tarot Card Meanings for Spiritual Guidance
You are ready to learn the lessons the Universe is sending your way. You can’t predict or plan your spiritual journey. Paths are made by walking, and your path will only be visible behind you. You will not be following the paths made by others, but you can use their experiences and information as signposts as you travel.
Information may come from unexpected sources, but don’t discount the message because it comes from an unusual messenger. Keep an open mind and an open heart, and look beneath the surface of your experiences.
