Tarot Card meaning for the Page of Cups



In the Page of Cups, we see a young man standing in front of a calm ocean. He is half looking at his cup and half away, deep in thought. This page is sensitive, creative and dreamy, all of which can help or hinder a situation.

The Page of Cups as a day card

Today you or someone you know, might be; gentle, emotional and possibly creative. The impossible may seem possible for this Page. Who is this today?

On the other hand, there might be too little action and maybe the Page is being too sensitive and needs to be handled with kid gloves. If this is the case how can we change or better deal with this behaviour?

Negative or reversed meaning for this card

Cups represent the element water and therefor emotions. If we find a young person that is just learning about this suit they could be emotional. Too emotional and they might find it difficult to deal with things in a rational or practical way. If we interpret this card negatively we have just gone a bit too far with the energy in this card.

How this card could present itself in real life

I have a good friend that is a Page of Cups. She is always full of wonder and excitement about things to come or things that have been. In some instances she can look forward to certain things for weeks and it will mostly be on a basis of feelings; we’ll have a nice time, I look forward to it. We get along very well I appreciate her sensitivity, my friend appreciates my more pragmatic look at things (me being more of a combination between a Sword and Wand personality).

How this card is represented in other Tarot decks

The court cards in the Tarot are for me without a doubt the most interesting cards to compare and contrast between other decks. In the Rider Waite, Pages are shown as Young men, the younger ones in the royal family of the suit. In other decks this card is represented by princesses or children. Just because they are shown as younger people doesn’t mean that the age of the client needs to necessarily be young. A page card represents that the person for who this card is meant is starting in a new suit and learns a whole range of new skills.

In the Crowley Tarot this card is beautiful. It is represented by the Princes of Cups. The colours are blues and purples. Her dress is flowing but still dynamic as well. In her cup is a turtle, showing that she goes slow and steady about her business.

In the Celtic Dragon Tarot we see a young girl accepting a scroll from a water Dragon. On the scroll we see a Cup on it. This card shows a beautiful moment of giving, sensitivity and gentle emotions.
