“Highly sensitive people are too often perceived as weaklings or damaged goods. To feel intensely is not a symptom of weakness, it is the trademark of the truly alive and compassionate. It is not the empath who is broken, it is society that has become dysfunctional and emotionally disabled. There is no shame in expressing your authentic feelings. Those who are at times described as being a 'hot mess' or having 'too many issues' are the very fabric of what keeps the dream alive for a more caring, humane world. Never be ashamed to let your tears shine a light in this world.” - Anthon St. Maarten
Element of water power: This card represents the earthy part of water where dreams can become reality. The Page of Cups represents a sense of not being imprisoned by emotions, of showing independence and freedom. The Page represents not only masculine but also feminine properties and thus signifies that the internal balance is gained through the giving or offering of love and ideals. This Page is assured and gentle but also introspective, because all thoughts that are creative are always coming from within and expressed through love.
The Page of Cups can be a metaphor for a daydreamer. On this day, it may be the path of what is offered to you in your time of need, just as you reach out to make that decision. This is the time when your dreams speak the most clearly to you, bringing in the sense of clarity, your silver lining after the storms have passed.
The symbolic meaning of Dreams come through as part of this card. What the Page is offering in his cup is the creative emotions that also form the basis for all creation. If you do not give your dreams the chance to come through, you may cut off the process of hope. If you relinquish hope, then hopeful things cannot happen in your life. If you surrender optimism, then you can not have the guarantee to ever find optimism again.
The act of Gratitude is also indicative when the Page of Cups appears. Go within and give thanks. Connect with something or someone that you love and touch base from a calm internal space. Focus. Allow yourself to feel love from within your heart space and outward, symbolically connecting with the cup that is held out towards you. Be open to receive the reciprocal love towards you without judgment.
Imagine you are surrounded by water and you are dancing in salvation and freedom with light, flowing in the moments of everything.
At times of Imbalance: You are undergoing a block in your creativity. There are things or projects that you find interesting, but you seem to do them for other reasons than for the joy of it. You may be doing them for money, for fame, or something else.
Medicine: The Page of Cups represents morals and integrity. When this card appears, do the right thing. Remember joy to reclaim your imaginative spirit
Mantra: The more I love myself, the more I can share with others.
