About Page of Pentacles
Meaning in Tarot
The following is an account of the page of pentacles as if spoken in first person. I thought it would be a neat way to gain better and personal understanding of this card's personality. Hope you like the perspective!
"I am the Page of Pentacles and this is my story.
My suit is of the earth, and my station is earth-bound too. That makes me a double-earth sign, and I am fully aware of my affinity to nature in all her forms, including mother-ness.
Some keywords the Page of Pentacles provides:
I am very close to my mom. Luckily, my mother (the Queen of Pentacles) dotes on me and lavishes me with endless affection. I eat it up. The more love the better. I thrive on this kind of wholesome attention.
When I'm not with mom, you will find me in the garden, in the stables, taking a hike in the mountains, or climbing trees in the groves. I am agriculturally inclined, and I help out in the grape vineyards every chance I get.
I'm also an avid explorer, and my areas of interests are pretty diverse. I enjoy philosophical pursuits, particularly in the realms of esotericism. As the Page of Pentacles I have access to high education, and I am persistent in my studies at schools of mysteries.
Everything is subject to my investigation. I approach my studies with open-mindedness, but I'm not so naïve that I can't make my own judgment calls about what is fact and what is fiction.
I make friends easily and am fairly popular. My mother always says "just be yourself" and that's what I do. I am naturally at ease with myself and others. I think this is why I get along so well with just about everybody.
I love to start new projects, but I'm very selective. I guess you could say I'm precocious because even at my young age, I am thoughtful about starting things unless I'm sure I can finish them. I like being dedicated to my tasks, and I take pride in a job well done.
I am my mothers pride and joy (and as I've said, the feeling is mutual). However, my father (the King of Pentacles) and I have a strained relationship. He thinks I should be more like my brother, assertive and goal-oriented.
My brother (the Knight of Pentacles) and I get along swimmingly. He makes up in male affection that I lack from my father. And, he protects my free-spirited nature.
As you can see, I am very savvy about the nature of relationships, particularly within the family. I know the roles family members play, and I can play along too, but I always know where every body stands in the grand theatrics.
If you met me on the street you would think I am much younger than I really am. That's because I have a fresh face to the world. My deep brown eyes look out on the world with friendly expectation and innocence. People love this about me, and that's why they find my so physically attractive too.
As the Page of Pentacles I serve as a messenger of simplicity and devotion in your readings. When I show up in your cards I will explain how nurturing and tilling the souls of your life will rend you favorable results. I will also remind you how paying attention to details and enjoying simple, earthly pleasures is a reward in itself."
Some symbols from the Page of Pentacles Tarot card:
Symbolic meaning of feathers deal with higher thought. They may also point to ascension and spiritual evolution to a higher plane. Feathers were worn by the Page of Pentacles may also symbolize communication with spirit energies, and expresses intuitive wisdom. Literally, we can recall the adage of "quite a feather in his/her cap" which means an accomplishment or success that looks very well on one's record or puts one in high standing.
As we would guess, flowers possess symbol meanings of joy, beauty, growth, sensitivity and unfolding. They are predominant features on the six of cups and four of rods, but they are seen sprinkled throughout many deck renditions (see also the Sunflower symbol meanings entry). Flowers are all about opening up and receiving the light of love, joy and compassion into our lives. In the Page of Pentacles Tarot card meaning, they remind us of the better things in life, the good times, the sweet smell of success. Because of them we remember the beauty that surrounds us if only we open up to its presence. Tip toe through other tulips in the cards.
Seen on many of the cards, mountain symbol meanings deal with triumph, challenge, attainment, and realization. Mountains also represent timelessness and an endurance that is infinite. When those mountains peak out of the cards into our attention, we may consider the vastness of our universe, and contemplate our place within it. We may also want to consider the heights to which we are climbing, and what the realization of our goals may mean for us and those around us. Climb other moutains in the cards.
"As we sew, so shall we reap." This is the prime symbol meaning behind the plowed fields we see in the cards. When these fields come in contact with our intuition in a reading, we should be mindful that what we do and how we do it is pivotal to our harvest. If we're lazy and sloppy (rushing through as the Knight of Pentacles is want to do) with planting our seeds we will be disappointed with the results. However, if we invest the time to plant, nurture, and grow our rows, we will be rewarded with abundance. Plowed fields are also a symbol of time - it takes time to reap our rewards, we must allow for germination, and patience is required as we wait it out for the results we are expecting from our labors. Plow through other fields here.
The color yellow is symbolic of intelligence as well as cheer, satisfaction and all-around contentment. Corresponding with the Manipura chakra, also known as the solar plexus chakra, yellow is an anchoring hue dealing with core issues in our lives. That which is at our emotional center is worth paying attention to. In the nine of cups, yellow represents our emotional well-being. See also color symbolism and the Tarot page here.
