To give you a bit of context whilst you reflect on your own relationship to the card, here are
a few key things to know about the Page of Pentacles.
Pages in the tarot often represent someone who is at the beginning of a journey and hungry to grow. Some tarot readers see them as stand-ins for specific young people or children in the life of the person being read for. The characters in page cards typically embody a sense of curiosity, a beginner's mindset, and a desire to learn and grow.
The Page of Pentacles is something of a patron card for students - it’s associated with a deep desire to grow knowledge. There’s an ambitious quality to this card that goes beyond the curious, upstart attitude of the other pages. You can see, by the look on the Page’s face as they gaze up at the Pentacle in their hand, that they have their eyes on the prize. Theirs is an intentional, trained curiousity.
It makes sense - the Pentacles, as a suit, is deeply concerned with developing resources, building a safety net, enjoying the comforts of life. The coins themselves represent wealth - one surefire way to have access to the best in life. But another route to elevation can be the growth of knowledge. Education grants access. And knowledge can be its own kind of wealth.
This Page knows this, and so they are channeling their natural curiosity into intentional action.
In your tarot journal, you’re asked to reflect on what this card means to you, now, in this moment, and what actions and thoughts it inspires in you. As you journal, pay attention to what you’re personally picking up in the card, but also consider what the key themes and symbols in the card might be telling you. What are you hungry to learn about? How might that learning benefit the quality of your life? How can you harness your creativity and take action?
