I’m new to the blogging world, so when I heard about a blog hop for Tarot Day, I didn’t want to miss out!
I was totally nervous when I was assigned the Page of Cups. I have been reading for a few years now and the Pages still stump me! I saw this as a challenge and did some researching about the card I was assigned.
Over the weeks, I fell in love with the shadow side or reversed meaning of the card. I just moved into a new home surrounded by new people and one person in particular shines this side of the card well. I’ve been observing him closely, realizing there are some sides to MYSELF that I need to work on as well.
The Page of Cups reflects, in some aspects, someone who is unable to deal with their emotions in a healthy way. I struggle with this at times. More often than I like to admit.. but that’s the beauty of tarot. It’s a tool to help overcome those blockages and help reach our Higher Selves.
I created a simple tarot spread just for working with the Page of Cups.
For this spread, you are going to pull out your Page and use it as a focus point. Shuffle your deck and when you’re ready, lay three cards beneath the Page as shown in the image.
The first card represents an emotional blockage you may have, preventing you from being able to process emotions in a secure, healthy way.
The second card in the spread is the first step needed to overcome what is troubling you. Set yourself free from the emotional overriding.
It’s important to take in both of these cards individually and as an interactive pair.
On the contrary of the shadow aspect of this card, there is a deep, positive message awaiting youinn. The final card in this spread reflects this message.
Let’s take our shadow work a bit further. You did your spread, you know where your inner blocks are, you know the first step to conquering it, and you have a message to hold tight and look forward to.
Sit comfortably in a quiet area. With palms facing upwards, laying on your lap, take a few deep breaths to center yourself.
As you walk into your Page of Cups card, you become the Page him/herself. Look around you. What do you see? What do you smell? Take a moment to get recognized with your surroundings. Do you hear the river near by? Take your time to walk over to the river bank.
After a moment, you notice you had your cup in your hand. This cup is slightly filled with water that represents your emotional immaturity. All those moments where you took things to heart for no reason all accumulate into this gorgeous cup. Take a moment to make this happy while your eyes are still closed. Remember what the tarot spread has revealed about your blockages and let that flow into the cup as well. As you release this, you begin to feel energized, new, and refreshed.
When you’re ready, throw the water into the river before you. Watch these blocks flow away with the current. You are now completely disconnected from those blocks and are able to start embracing your positive message from the spread above.
Take a few deep breaths and step back out of the card. When you are ready, you may open your eyes.
