Page of Pentacles

 

 

 

Upright position:

 

Scholar, generosity, kindness, a careful person, learning new ideas/opinions

 

The Page of Pentacles can be a card about boredom, in some ways. You may be tempted to say or do things to shake things and people up just for a little excitement. Rethink this impulse, and find a better use of your energy. Excitement can be created.


General: In general the Page of Pentacles is excellent energy to support you when you have somewhat tedious work to get accomplished. The Page can give you focus, backbone, and the wherewithal to stick with a task that is not necessarily glamorous or fun. Don't try to sidestep effort, or you will fall on your face.


Work: The Page can indicate more work to be done than there is time to do it. Don't despair, just roll up your sleeves and get busy. The news in general is good, but you may be feeling overwhelmed and unexcited. Remember slow and steady wins the race. If you need help to get things done, don't hesitate to go out and find the assistance. It's there for you.


Love: If you're in a committed relationship when this card appears, it may have lost some of its luster. That doesn't have to mean a death knell, but it does mean that action and discussion is necessary. To create change, you must be honest about how you are feeling. If you are unattached, and can't seem to meet someone new, look carefully at what you're holding in your heart. You may still be attached to an ex, and may need to let go before you can expect to move forward.


Finances: With regard to finances, the Page of Pentacles points to rewards for good, old-fashioned hard work. This is not a time to gamble or to be unrealistic. This is a time to put an honest appraisal on the value of your skills and efforts. If you aren't being fairly compensated, now might be the time to make a change. Invest, don't spend. Choose traditional, safe investments for now.


Health: Any health problems manifesting now may be a result of neglected emotional issues. Do you need attention? You don't have to get sick to get some. Ask for what you need. However be sure that any symptoms are properly evaluated by a health care professional. If they say there's nothing wrong with you, look to your mental and emotional situations. You hold the key to your health and vitality, in the vast majority of the time.


Spirituality: If you are feeling some spiritual malaise, now would be a good time to examine what excites you. What do you enjoy? What interests you? What would you like to explore? Make a point to get off the beaten path and try new things. Create your own energy and enthusiasm. Find the most upbeat and spiritually aware person that you know, and talk to them about what makes them tick. You will learn helpful things.

 

 

 

Reversed position:

 

Wastefulness, luxury, rebellious, opposing ideas/opinions, bad news

 

The reversed Page of Pentacles can be a card about the need for focus. You are very likely to be easily distracted now. Do your best to do one thing at a time, and keep your mind where it needs to be.


General: In general the reversed Page of Pentacles can mean that you either must work harder to keep your energy and mind from going off on non-helpful tangents; or that you need to give yourself a break from your usual routine. If it's possible, even a long weekend to recharge your batteries can help you come back renewed, refreshed, and more effective.


Work: The reversed Page can indicate that you have a very heavy workload and you may be absolutely overwhelmed. If that's the case, you must not try to ignore that fact, but seek help in whatever way is possible. It's better to ask for help than to not complete what needs to be done. You are not all on your own, though you may feel that way.


Love: You may find yourself with a wandering eye when this card appears, even if you are in a solid, happy, committed relationship. Think about how to best handle this. Realize that if you are dishonest with your partner, you may well lose them completely. Find ways to put a "spark" back into your relationship if you want to keep it. If you are single and interested in someone when this card appears, it generally means that neither one of you is truly ready to settle down. That's okay, just have some sensible fun with it and see where things go.


Finances: You may feel like playing, and gambling now, rather than being responsible. It's not that you can't do this at all (unless you have a gambling problem) it's that you should do this in a controlled, responsible manner. Don't play with more than you can afford to lose. The lottery is not an investment strategy. Give yourself limits.


Health: With the reversed Page of Pentacles, it can be easy to accidentally hurt yourself while you're "playing." Try to stay mindful and in the moment, and you should be fine. If you are not a teatotaler, you should be very, very careful with alcohol and drugs when this card appears. It can be very easy to get carried away now, or to cause yourself a minor injury because you have imbibed. Focus is the key word; get some.


Spirituality: The Page of Pentacles reversed can imply that you're feeling a sense of boredom, spiritually and in every other way. Think about how you might enjoy some new exploration. What people from history or modern day persons seem to you to "have it together" spiritually? Why? What can you learn from them. Try new things. Read books you'd never normally read. If you're bored, shake yourself up, not necessarily other people. There are a billion interesting things about this life. Find some of them.
