by astrology valley Nov 09 2021
The Page of Cups symbolizes the unforeseen brilliance that gets to us from the unconscious, in ways that perhaps we will truly not understand. In this Tarot card, a young girl can be seen standing at the seashore, the wavy sea behind her, wearing a blue tunic with the floral print while holding a golden cup in her right hand. She is seen wearing a beret and a flowing scarf.
She seems surprised by a fish that is popping its head out of the cup as if it wants to greet her. She can neither toast nor drink from the cup as the fish is staring at her and wants to engage with her. The sea behind her and the fish symbolizes the element of water and things related to creativity, emotions, feelings, and intuition. The fish that popped out unexpectedly from the cup represents that creativity and inspiration sometimes come out of the blue and only when you are ready for it.
