The Brief History Of The Page Of Pentacles Tarot Card
There is no known documentation of the history of this card, but there is a history that you should know regarding the Tarot in general.
In the 1400s, the Italians came up with the idea to make playing cards for a new kind of card game. They wanted to have something fresh and exciting. They added more to the regular playing deck.
They added some beautiful art that would be representative and enjoyable to look at while playing this fun game. We all know what playing cards look like and how they function.
The Tarot deck was added to with “trump” cards. That formed what we know now as the Major Arcana. The Minor Arcana are the regular suits that mirror the regular playing cards.
The spiritualist movement began with the Fox sisters in 1848. Tarot card decks started to be used as another tool in divination.
The first Ouija board was created in 1886 by William Fuld. You can see now how this all ties in. Now let’s dive into the Page of Pentacles and the definitions behind it.
1. The Basic Definition Of The Page Of Pentacles Tarot Card
The Pentacles suit typically represents money, finances, and career. It can represent other things depending on a question asked or thought being focused on.
The Pages usually are the messengers or harbingers. The upright position of the Page of Pentacles Tarot card means there is a new beginning happening that will be filled with success.
It may be a small success or a big one, but it’s good news either way. It’s also a nudge to keep you focused and grounded so that things will continue heading in the right direction.
If you have a goal in mind, then keep yourself aligned with it. Don’t stop doing what is right to help you reach that goal, as the Page of Pentacles Tarot card means that you should absolutely succeed.
Be consistent, diligent, and loyal to the situation you’re working with. This will make your beginning something wonderful that will grow that much more over time.
You are protected and provided for during this time of growth and development. This card really reminds me of college, but for people older than that, it’s more of a new goal or project they’ve created for themselves.
Know that when you see the Page of Pentacles upright, you’re getting good news and all is well. That should make you smile.
Oh, and if you’re reading for someone else, then you’re delivering them the good news that some smashingly exciting beginning is coming for them!
2. The Page Of Pentacles Tarot Card Definition (Reversed)
Let’s discuss now the Page of Pentacles Tarot card in reverse. When it’s upside down, the Page of Pentacles Tarot card meaning changes a bit.
While the upright position is positive and cheery, the reverse indicates issues, delays, or maybe even a lack of focus on your part. Has something happened that caused you to look at things differently?
The Page of Pentacles Tarot card means that you’ve lost your commitment to what you’ve worked so hard to create. You need to somehow find that dedication again, so you can still achieve your goals.
Maybe boredom with the slow movement got to you and so you started to blow off life. Whatever it happens to be, you’ve got to find the joy and the desire again as you had before.
Losing your way can cause problems and delays in your life. Find new ways to excite yourself again. Get out of your rut and get back on track. Only you can make that change.
If you’re reading for another person, this is what you’ll have to tell them so that they can improve themselves and restart their path to the goals they have in place whether that be money, career, job, or even love.
3. Love And The Page Of Pentacles Tarot Card (Upright)
When it comes to love, the upright Page of Pentacles says you’re going to get a gift or good news regarding partnership, commitment, or finding someone you feel connected to.
It can also mean a new friend coming your way who is going to be “key” in your life. You’ll feel as though this person just knows you so well. You don’t know how it’s possible, but a beautiful relationship will form.
It can be much the same in matters of the heart. A soul mate connection may be forming for you. Of course, if you’re in a relationship or married, the Page of Pentacles Tarot card means that you’re going in deeper.
If you’ve only been casually dating, this is going to the next level for you. You and your partner are feeling dedicated to one another. You could very well achieve exclusivity or boyfriend/girlfriend status.
Maybe someone declares that they really like you and would like to be more than friends. Reading for someone else is letting them know that someone is into them or wants more.
That kind of news is always wanted, isn’t it?! Everyone wants to know they’re loved, liked, or wanted. So, this card can be for you or for anyone you’re asking about.
4. Love And The Page Of Pentacles Tarot Card (Reversed)
The reversal of the Page of Pentacles Tarot card means that someone has become complacent, bored, or feels the relationship they are in is boring. They’re not motivated and might not be committed anymore.
In this case, the Page of Pentacles can be you if you’re asking about your love life or it can be your partner. If you’re reading for someone else, then you’re helping to let the other person know that their partner is losing interest.
If you’re single and pull this card, then you’ve gotten tired of the dating pool and are bored with the same old attempts to find love. It’s time to find something fresh and new that you’ve never tried before.
Someone losing interest isn’t easy to take, but it’s not something that you’re helpless to. You can always do things that freshen the relationship up and make it exciting again.
If you’re the one who is losing interest then perhaps you need to figure out if that person is in fact, right for you. If they do seem as though they are then find things that you two can enjoy together.
If they seem as though they really aren’t the person you can see your future with then find a way to end it so that you can be free to find someone who IS meant for you.
When you’re reading for someone else, this is the advice you’d want to give them so they can stoke that fire again or they can leave it and find a new exciting adventure elsewhere.
5. Finances, Job, And Career With The Page Of Pentacles Card (Upright)
When it comes to finances, everyone wants good news. That being said, the Page of Pentacles Tarot card means that you’re getting a new beginning or things are spinning in your direction in a successful way.
You may be graduating from school, class, or workshop. You’ve been learning new skills that are helping you to get that job you want or your dream career begins to take flight.
News of a new job or job change is possible, as is a change in position or a raise. I mean, any of these is pretty uplifting. It’s new, it’s fresh, and it’s an invigorating experience.
You’ve finally gotten to a point where you can achieve your dreams. Reading for someone else, you’re kind of the vessel of delivering the good news via the Page of Pentacles Tarot card.
There is nothing more satisfying than giving someone news that makes them feel alive, invigorated, and excited. The future is bright and things are going the way they should be.
6. Finances, Job, And Career With The Page Of Pentacles Card (Reversed)
Seeing the reversed Page of Pentacles is a whole other bag of worms. It means you’re losing motivation; you’re not as excited as you were before, and you’re not even sure if you can make the achievements you set for yourself.
You might not be happy with your pay or the position you have at a job. It makes you feel like everything is monotonous. You’re bored or want to get out of this crap you feel you’re in.
Are you feeling lazy? This is you being lazy, or someone else being lazy and not fulfilling a goal. If it’s you, then you’re just not into it anymore. If it’s someone else, they’re losing reason to stay where they are.
The reversed Page of Pentacles means that there is no longer, desire, dedication, or commitment to the position, job, or finances that you’ve been in.
You may even expect or desire people to give you things or make money without doing much. You want to lay back and rake in the cash. Life doesn’t really work that way though.
If that’s the way you feel, then something is very wrong. The card could be warning you to step out of this alternate reality you’re living in. It’s time to rise up and find something more fulfilling that matches your desire.
7. The Page Of Pentacles Tarot Card As A Person (Upright)
The Page of Pentacles Tarot card means that as a person, they are motivated, excited, optimistic, and ready to take on the world to accomplish their goals. They know what they must do to have a happy and fulfilling career.
They’re also aware of the work they have to put in to bring in the money that they really want to make. In love, they know that they are going to find the right one for them.
The Page of Pentacles is happy-go-lucky and nothing is going to stop them. The Page is ready to get on the right road and keep working hard. Whether it’s career, job, finances, or love; the Page is really fired up about life.
There are new ideas, plans, and desires the Page of Pentacles has. There’s no stopping the Page because they are 100% dedicated to what they want in life.
They are the type of people that will reach the finish line with an amazing career, job, or business with an amazing paycheck. They will also find their soulmate, because they are so positive, that they cannot help but draw them in.
8. The Page Of Pentacles Tarot Card As A Person (Reversed)
We’re on the opposite side again. The reversed Page of Pentacles Tarot card means that this person is losing faith in the process. They cannot see their path to success anymore.
This person may actually be depressed, but more often than not, just tired of trying. They’re giving up or they already have. They’ve become bored, complacent, and feeling stuck and unmotivated to try.
The reversed Page may be lazy and want to be handed everything. This person just doesn’t see the value in trying anymore with anything. They gave up their search for love, an amazing career or job, and the goals they once had.
It’s possible that they’re at the point where they just want everything given to them. They want to manifest their good but aren’t driven enough to actually do anything about it, so the good doesn’t arrive.
This gives them more reason to complain and pull back from the flow of life. This is likely a warning that if you’re feeling this way, it’s time to do something to uplift your life. Medication or meditation are both excellent suggestions.
If the reading is for someone else, then you’re going to need to tell them they need some help. Suggest what you think may work best for them so they can get out of this hole or slump they have become comfortable with.
9. Advice From The Page Of Pentacles Tarot Card In A Reading
The advice that comes from the Page of Pentacles is very optimistic and can make you feel hopeful for your future. The Page of Pentacle Tarot card means to put you back on track or keep you on it.
The things to remember are that you need to stay focused do the things that help you achieve your goals, stay positive about the road you’re on, and be sure to be active.
When you’re active you have no time to be down or feel pessimistic. Affirmation meditations can help you maintain your focus and desire to succeed if needed.
When reading for someone else, remind them how valuable they are in this life and how maintaining the good vibes is essential for them to continue climbing to the top of the mountain of success.
If they or you are looking for love, it’s important to know your value as a person. It will help to attract the right mate or dismiss the wrong one when it happens.
It’s about knowing that only the good is worth fighting for and achieving success with. It’s a positive energy type of card that makes you feel good when it’s upright.
If it’s upside down (reversed), it’s saying you are not doing your best right now and need to dig into why you’re in this situation. Find out why you feel the way you do and search for a way back up onto the road again.
Don’t give up on your dreams of a better job, an excellent career, amazing pay, and incredible love. You can do this but you have to take the steps. Get up and go!
10. The Page Of Pentacles Tarot Card As Feelings
The Page of Pentacles Tarot card means positive vibrations when feelings are concerned. You feel alive, you feel excited, joyful, happy, and fascinated about what life has ahead for you.
You’re ready to take the next steps and even if you have fears about it, you’re going to do it because your life excites you. This life makes you feel like what you’re doing is leading you to the ultimate in happiness.
Love isn’t a distant thing when you are feeling positive about finding the right person. You know that this person is just around the corner. You can feel that pull.
Of course, the reversed Page of Pentacles Tarot card means feeling as though there is no more reason to get up and fight your way forward anymore. Things don’t seem attainable for you.
You think love is fleeting and maybe that you’re not worth having someone who will give you all the love you want. You may even feel you don’t deserve it.
Getting into a cave of feeling nothing is not going to help you. The card is warning you that if you ever want to feel good, you have to work past the feelings of insecurity and inadequacy.
It’s up to you to take back the control you feel you’ve lost. Work on meditation and other ways of bringing your energy back up to the light so you can find what makes you happiest of all.
11. The Page Of Pentacles Tarot Card Meaning Regarding Children
When you’re looking into children, the Page of Pentacles Tarot card means that your child is absolutely a shining star in this world. This child is an achiever and makes life a success.
The child or children are achieving good grades, getting along with people, and feeling very optimistic about their lives. They are the type that makes the other people around them feel good.
The reversed Page of Pentacles Tarot card meaning can be a bit disturbing. This child is withdrawn, insecure, doesn’t want to put in the effort, has quit being around other kids, and may be being bullied or experiencing depression.
It’s imperative you watch your children’s behavior because if they are pulling back then this may be a sign that they can go further downhill if you aren’t careful.
Take them to a therapist if they won’t tell you what is going on. Every child should feel the magic of the upright Page of Pentacles and if they don’t, you have to do what you can to help them.
In some cases, when you get the upright Page of Pentacles Tarot card, your child may actually give you good news, as they themselves are the Page. How wonderful is that?!
Of course, reversed would mean they’re going to give you bad news or sad news. Be as empathetic as you can.
12. Health And The Page Of Pentacles Tarot Card
The Page of Pentacles Tarot card means it’s time to focus on your health if that’s what you’re asking about. If you’re concerned about what is going on with your body, this card says to be careful.
You may need to put more focus on yourself and your body for a while if you’ve been doing a lot of other things. You cannot remain your best if you aren’t healthy.
Be sure to stay in line with your checkups! The Page of Pentacles is associated with Taurus and Taurus has things to keep an eye out for throughout their lives.
Even if you aren’t a Taurus but you pull this card, it may be telling you to watch out for what Taurus needs to typically. Troubles can develop with the throat, neck, tonsils, esophagus, veins, and carotid artery.
These are a handful of things that can develop but if you’re not a Taurus, you may still develop problems with one of these things so if any symptoms arise, go get it looked at.
13. The Page Of Pentacles Tarot Card Answer “Yes” Or “No”
This is another one of the Tarot cards that is very obvious for a yes or no answer. When the Page of Pentacles Tarot card is upright, it very clearly means a big yes!
It’s not an ordinary yes, it’s a YES!!!
Of course, when the card is reversed, it’s going to mean a big old no. The thing is, if you make appropriate changes as the card suggests, that answer can change.
Pulling it as a card of the day or quick question, it’s a blatant no in reverse. If you’ve pulled other cards, it may tell you more about why it’s a no and what you can do to change the answer.
Remember that I’ve mentioned that the cards are subjective, so things can change when you make different decisions.
Certainly, if you’ve been not doing well and pull the reversed Page, then it’s telling you until you change your attitude and do things differently it’s going to be a no.
Learn from it and start to make those important changes and you’ll find how wonderfully your path does in fact, change.
14. The Page Of Pentacles Tarot Card In Position
The Position of a Tarot card can also be as important as the card itself when you’re asking questions. Whether you are doing a reading for someone else or for yourself, you need to figure out the meaning among the other cards.
There are so many different spreads you can learn. Some are very detailed and some just get right to the core of a question. Since you are learning, I want to use the three-card spread.
It covers the past, present, and near future. The Page of Pentacles changes slightly when it’s in a certain position. Below are the examples:
The Page of Pentacles in Past Position:
The Page of Pentacles in the past position would mean that you recently had some good news or some success was presented to you. It made you feel confident and ready to push forward.
You might have started something new that you’re excited about. Whatever it is, you were in good spirits and felt motivated.
The reversed Page means that you recently felt unmotivated, lazy, unhappy, or got news that made you feel as though you weren’t going to succeed. It made you feel as though you’re just not good enough.
The Page of Pentacles in Present Position:
The Page of Pentacles having landed in the present position means you’re currently at a new beginning or are about to be shortly (within days). You got good news or positive vibes on a job or love interest.
You feel amazing about what’s coming up and right now, you’re motivated to do what needs to be done. You’re ready to face the path ahead with great optimism.
If you got the card in reverse, then you got the news that has put you in a sour or sad mood. You’re feeling right now as though maybe you’re not going to ever get good news. A door closed and you feel lost. Don’t stay that way!
The Page of Pentacles in Future Position:
The Page of Pentacles in the future position gives you something to really look forward to. Good tidings, blessings, or news is coming in the very near future that will make you feel fantastic!
Whatever you’re working on or want to work on is likely to go very well. A date may really be amazing enough to want to forge a deeper relationship with someone. This card in this position can also be a proposal of sorts.
When the card is reversed, the page brings you news that makes you want to crawl in a hole. Something got delayed or canceled which bums you out. Maybe you experience someone telling you “no” in matters of the heart.
15. The Lessons The Page Of Pentacles Wants To Teach You
Just like all the other Tarot cards, the Page of Pentacles offers some pretty sage advice to take into account upon pulling it. It doesn’t matter if it’s upright or reversed.
Here are some things that the Page of Pentacles advises:
- Stay focused, grounded, and on your path, because you’re almost there!
- Don’t give up before the miracle in your life actually happens.
- You’ve been working hard… know that your success is on the way.
- Grab on tight and take the reins of the success you’re manifesting.
- You are enough and you are successful!
- You are a light in this world, so don’t let bumps in the road deter you.
- If you feel bored or discouraged then find something to soothe and excite your soul again!
- Only you can make yourself rise to the top or sink to the bottom.
- Make feeling good the biggest priority in your life.
- Love is there for you whether or not you can see it or even feel it.
- Give yourself a chance to experience the magic that is you.
- Monotony can only come if you allow it to get stale.
- Always do things that stimulate your mind, heart, and body.
- Do things that align with the positive energy that surrounds you.
- You can always change the course you are on if it’s not working for you.
- Rome wasn’t built in a day; it was done over time and with great care. This is the same for your life.
It’s hard to be negative with this card, quite honestly. Even if the card is reversed, it has ideas for you to pull out of that situation you are in or help change your mood into something more lucrative.
16. Astrology And The Page Of Pentacles Tarot Card
Taurus is the Zodiac sign associated with the Page of Pentacles. Taurus is steady, hardworking, reliable, loyal, and dedicated to what they have to do, which is why it does fit so well with this card.
Taurus is ruled by Venus which is why they are so loyal in their work and in their love. They take life seriously and always want to succeed in whatever they are doing.
When they have goals, they do tend to focus on it. Some people don’t see why they are so focused or work so hard for what they’re doing but they know it’s for a successful outcome.
This is the case with love as well. When a Taurus isn’t prioritizing love it’s because work has all their energy. The same is true when they are focused on love is because they are in a phase where work is going well enough.
It really does change with what they’re trying to work at or achieve in their lives. They need success to feel alive and worthy. Sometimes they can go overboard and need reminders to slow down.
Venus helps them stay passionate about what they’re doing or how they love. There is always that wonderful influence they have flowing through them. It all really makes perfect sense now… Doesn’t it?!
17. The Page Of Pentacles Tarot Card In Numerology
Looking through the cards you know that the last in the numbers in the Minor Arcana you know that it goes up to ten. However, the face cards add more to the mix. That being the case, the Page comes after the Ten of Pentacles.
This would mean that the Page of Pentacles number is eleven. In Numerology, you can look at it as an eleven, or you can break that down to a two. The number eleven is a very important number.
The number eleven is a karmic one and is often associated with spiritual awakening or growth. It’s affiliated with inspiration, creativity, and insight. That certainly hits the mark!
If your Life Path Number shakes out to an eleven, then your true purpose in this life is to inspire others to become the best they can be. It’s a spiritual crusade of sorts. You help people open up to their higher selves.
Perhaps this card inspires you to work more in a spiritual field of interest. You may feel pulled to Tarot, astrology, reiki, or some other type of new-age type of career or job.
18. When You Keep Pulling The Page Of Pentacles Tarot Card
If you keep seeing the appearance of the good ole Page of Pentacles then you’re getting a message that seems to be rather important. It’s trying to alert you to good news on the way.
Something is turning a corner for you and if you’ve been feeling low, you’re about to have a real reason to feel like a million bucks!
You could be being alerted to true love on the way or a commitment with someone you’ve been talking to. Whatever this news is, it’s going to make you feel on top of the world.
Now… dun dun dun… if you get the reversed Page of Pentacles over and over again, then it’s telling you to watch your attitude. You may not get good news. In fact, you may get news that throws you off your game.
Look inward to find out why you’re pulling negativity in. This often happens when you’ve been pessimistic, feeling low, having low self-esteem, and being leery about love.
What does this mean? Well, you generated your own karma that is now going to bite you in the butt. Get in gear and get back to generating optimism and you’ll be alright.
19. Symbols For The Page Of Pentacles Tarot Card
You have to truly look at the Page of Pentacles card to see the symbols within. In the Rider Waite deck for example; the Page of Pentacles is a young enthusiastic person lifting up a pentacle as though it’s an offering.
They appear to be giving you something of value and it makes you feel happy and good about the path that you are on. There are little trees, grass, a body of water, and even flowers in the picture.
It’s a truly complete picture when you think about it. It’s the perfect setting with an offer on the table. It may be an offer of love, money, or a new job. It’s exciting!
If you’re going for a Page of Pentacles Tarot card tattoo, you might consider getting the whole thing done because the full picture is needed to represent the feeling behind it.
Naturally, you can discuss your ideas with an artist and they will help you come up with an alternative if the whole card isn’t for you. Remember it does involve Taurus and Venus as well as the number eleven.
20. Spirituality And The Page Of Pentacles Tarot Card
The Page of Pentacles Tarot card meaning is very spiritual. It has to do with building and accepting the karma that may come from it. The upright card speaks of amazing karma built from doing the right things and being optimistic.
The reverse of the Page means that your attitude stinks and you’re generating stinky karma back to you. The type of bad news that comes with this card is about you and what you’ve been doing with your life.
Consider trying to change things in your life that will help bring you back up so you can get back on track with a positive life.
If you’ve never really had a positive life then this card is telling you it’s time for you to look into ways to get there, such as meditation or affirmations. There are definitely ways to turn things around.
You can find happiness, love, and success if you really put the effort in. Just emotional effort alone will help facilitate the change you really want to see. Taking steps even if they are small will get you higher in life.
You can do this, so don’t give up if you see the reversed Page of Pentacles.
I hope this article helps you to understand what this mystical Tarot card really means and how it can help in your life or in others.
I wish you all the luck of the Universe!
