There are multiple sets of numbered cards and court cards in the tarot deck. The numeric cards run from Ace to ten. Each of the four suits (Swords, Cups, Pentacles, and Wands) is represented within the numbered cards and in the deck’s sixteen court cards. The court cards represent each suit’s royal court, including a King, Queen, Knight, Page — this blog’s focus. Pages are the lowest members of the court. Like many more subordinate status officials, they carry clout by association but have limited power. The potential to inherit status and be great is there, but they live a life of leisure and luxury for now.
Court cards in tarot have a unique place within the tarot because they either reflect your present psychological state or others’ perceptions. An experienced tarot reader can usually decipher the complex interconnections. Still, an excellent insight to keep in mind when it comes to Page cards is this: if things feel new and uncertain, the Page likely represents you. If you feel in control, the Page is someone else. Court cards can be a bit complicated to read and understand, so let’s take a closer look at the significance behind the four Page Tarot cards.
Page Tarot Cards
Page of Wands
The Page of Wands tarot is like The Fool because it represents a free spirit who embraces change and new beginnings. It’s a great card to have in the present position because wands are a symbol of creativity. The Page of Wands is encouraging you to listen to your unconscious mind and follow any artistic or imaginative ideas. Just be sure to cast away any fears that nobody will go along with your beliefs.
Page of Pentacles
The Page of Pentacles tarot is a tricky card because it indicates that you are only now coming to specific terms about the real world. This is a good place for the card to land because you will be blessed with a calm and rational approach to all pressing problems. This is also an excellent card to have if you are in a tense financial situation as it gives you the cleverness of a child with nothing to lose and everything to gain. Apply this approach to your income problems, and you could be out of the red and into the black in no time.
The Page of Pentacles is somewhat weakened in its potency for financial gain when it is in the future position. For your youthful awakening to pragmatism to be slated for some future date indicates that your relationship to the land of fantasy and imagination could be costly relative to having to accept the reality of the world on its terms. On the other hand, this card often indicates a helping hand will be lent when you are most in need when it lands in the future position of your reading, so be confident going forward that there is hope ahead in life.
Page of Cups
The Page of Cups tarot, in the present position, is a card that predicts an igniting of desire in the near future. A page is young, many years from the responsibilities of the court. Love is an immediate interest and a youthful intoxicant. Time seems different when you are young — impatience for change makes an hour seem like a day. So the Page in this position indicates that you might get impatient for love, but something is about to sprout. You might even be around your future lover now and not even know it.
Page of Swords
The Page of Swords tarot card in the present position is challenging. You are alone in a decision, and the truth is almost too terrible or costly to tell. But your character and integrity are on the line. You might not get caught, but the Page of Swords insists you take the righteous path because next time, there might be someone watching as you feel comfortable operating on the other side of the integrity line. The Page of Swords is most likely to represent another person when it appears in the future position. This could indicate pregnancy with a child on its way soon. Or, a new love interest younger than you could be giving you some important news when you least expect it. If your lover is much older than you, The Page of Swords most definitely represents you with something to tell him.
Interpreting Page Tarot Cards
The Page brings a childlike joy into your life. When this card appears in a reading, it indicates a transformation in an area of your life. Whether you are undergoing a rebirth or just moving to a new part of town, The Page card is a reminder that upheaval in life may be a gift that allows us a chance to wander, childlike, without a need for immediate, concrete answers.
Pages also have a dark side. When a reading features two Pages, a lack of structure is indicated. While it could mean that you’re on vacation and taking it easy, it could also suggest that you’re running away from commitments and responsibilities. You choose escapism as your way out of pretty much everything. Unfortunately, the longer you act like an immature child, the easier it will be for others to treat you like one.
