Page of Cups
Venus enters Cancer today and brings with it an outpouring of emotion that may take you by surprise. Venus in Cancer is sensitive, loving, gentle and kind. It’s also nurturing and very compassionate — and more than willing to express its feelings of love and affection for others.
The Page of Cups refers to a sense of child-like wonder and enthusiasm that prompts you to throw caution to the wind and follow your dreams. It’s an exuberant, unrestrained and joyful energy that stems from the expectation that you’ll succeed, rather than worrying that you might fail.
In this version of the card — from Dana Driscoll’s exquisite Tarot of the Trees — a golden chalice rests at the base of a waterfall, surrounded by a verdant landscape of wildflowers and trees. The water fills up the cup and spills over, just as emotions are likely to spill over today.
The Page of Cups captures this wellspring of emotions with a childlike, youthful exuberance. There is no fear or hesitation. There’s only a willingness to feel and to share those feelings with whatever lucky recipient comes your way.
Pay attention to the messages your receive today — it could be a letter or a phone call, or it could be words of encouragement or appreciation from others. Whatever it is, know that it’s spoken from the heart with no expectations or agendas.
Don’t underestimate the power of your own words either. As the Page of Cups can be unfiltered, you want to make sure that you mean what you say today, and that you’ll mean it still tomorrow.
