I find it super helpful when studying the tarot court cards to relate the energy of each of these card to a particular feeling, situation, or person in my life. This brings the card to life for me, and helps me commit the essence of the card meaning into my memory. Today, I’m feeling a strong resonance with the Page of Cups. This little lover is one of my favorite cards in the deck, as he signifies messages of love, feelings of happiness and joy, youthful enthusiasm, and creative new beginnings. Whether these are experiences you are having yourself, or an atmosphere that someone is bringing into your life- what’s not to love about the Page of Cups energy?!
So, this sense of a lovely, new beginning in my life comes from a certain romantic event that happened last week at the beach in Florida. It was a beautiful, rainy day (Cups are for Water!), and Kristen insisted on heading to the beach for reasons unknown to me that seemed very stubborn and impractical since it wasn’t a nice beach day and we had a lot of work we could be doing. I figured it would be easier to go and get it over with, so off we went to the beach in the rain. Kristen parked overlooking the water and we sat there looking at the water and the birds and the raindrops. Kristen was talking about what a nice time we were having, and how much she enjoyed being with me, traveling with me, living with me, and working with me. There was a lot of together time and she was happy about it. And then she proposed! And I said yes! Bam! Messages of love indeed! Hello Page of Cups!
The Page of Cups can often bring these types of unexpected messages, so surprises abound when he shows up in a reading. I’ve also have some friends tell me about pregnancies lately, which is typical Page of Cups fun news! This Page is also very intuitive, so listen to your inner voice when trying to channel his creative and renewing energy. Yes, renewal is often associated with the Page of Cups, and in that sense I feel a renewed commitment to my relationship. I think it’s worth noting that this reaffirms the placement of The Emperor in my personal New Year reading, which I read as 2015 being a year when Kristen and I would create a firm foundation for our relationship, with a structured commitment. Engagement indeed!
So that’s the short story of my engagement, told a bit long, and the reason why I’m feeling surrounded by the warm glow of the Page of Cups these days. In this instance the Page could be me or it could be my girlfriend, or should I say fiancee (ok, I probably won’t say that much because it sounds super pretentious to me!)?! Either way, I’m feeling a bit dreamy, a lot of love, and a happiness in my heart. This Page can be a wonderful reminder to connect with your heart space and your inner child in order to feel the youthful joy of being alive. He asks you to be emotional and to wear your heart on your sleeve. There are so many beautiful things to be happy about in your life, so why not indulge in some deep joy regarding all that you have in this life.
