PAGE OF CUPS
How do I express love? How do I offer love to myself + others?
By being a fairy and singing to the ocean.
Page of Cups
I mean...the Page of Cups is a weird dude. He's talking to a fish with a scarf turban and floral suit on for Pete's sake. He shows his love through imagination, magic, creative expression, art, music, poetry, and even nature. He's highly intuitive and is connected to the ocean, animals and the fairy realm. PAGES represent EXCITEMENT and CUPS represent LOVE and EMOTIONS.
Seeing this card for how I offer love is pretty cute. And I'd have to agree. To show my love I enjoy the magic of tarot reads, sharing songs, and being playful in nature.
It's important to remember these are my strengths. But it's also a good reminder that not everyone is in the WHIMSICAL world of the PAGE or in the watery, EMOTIONAL realms of CUPS. Not everyone is ready or willing to go there.
Last night for the solstice I really wanted to go out and skinny dip, gather on the beach and sing/chant to the ocean. That's when I feel most connected, loved and held. And that's how I like to share my love too. But the peeps I was with did not want to do that. So we didn't.
When you find yourself in an environment where you perhaps can't share your love the way you feel most comfortable, it's totally cool. Not everyone is like you (there's 15 other court cards...which for you PSYCHOLOGY NERDS, the 16 court cards also line up with the Myers-Briggs 16 personality types. The Page of Cups is an INFP.) If you find yourself in the presence of others with different interests and way of showing love, be adaptable while still remaining true to your MAGIC.
When the time and place is right you will be surrounded by other humans who are receptive to your favorite form of love expression. To all my fairies out there who talk to animals and sing to the ocean, thanks for getting me. Love you all!
To view the world through the lens of the Page of Cups is to see the creative potential in everything. I've recently picked up the ukulele and I've always, since a young child, loved writing songs + singing. This Leo New Moon I am planting seeds of creating music. Also, I just pulled the Page of Cups a few hours ago from a friend's inherited deck (see post before), so there's no denying his message.
Page of Cups Rx paired w/ Green Aventurine indicates that as Venus enters Aquarius, you may find yourself becoming quite scatter brained, as the world around you will offer many distractions through technology. Turn your phone off. Spend time in Nature. Sing to the trees. Align your energy with the soothing vibration of the Earth. This will enhance your creativity and motivation, and give you the space to inject a sense of humor and playfulness into your life. You'll also deepen your focus, and form new ideas, so whatever it is you've been struggling on finishing, you can channel this inventive transit's energy into creating a beautiful masterpiece.
s the sun enters Libra you may find yourself more interested in others. The opportunity to deepen connections and form new relationships is strong this time of year. Page of Cups Rx paired w/ Smokey Quartz indicates a need to stay out of other people's business. Filter out gossip and disparaging remarks. This shop-talk will drain you emotionally, zapping your creativity and enthusiasm. Instead, channel this socially receptive and empathetic awareness into making YOUR world beautiful. Once you do, you'll be gifted the opportunity to share w/ those around you, bringing you the interpersonal connection you desire.
The Page of Cups paired w/ tiny scroll message reading, "Lokah Samastah Sukhino Bhavantu." Surround yourself with other sparkly eyed beings this Pisces Full Moon. You may be feeling particularly sensitive. Know this psychic energy is your gift. Channel it into creativity. Spirit is calling you to the ocean. If you're able, go! Release your fears around being misunderstood into the deep blue. Honor your ancestors through sacred song + chant. Shake off your fears through intuitive movement + dance. Write + share poems honoring the sacred spiral of the universe. Be playful + wild in nature. By raising your vibration in celebration of your freedom, you cast a prayer out for all those suffering to be free.
