Page of Cups Description and Symbolism
We come across a younger boy or girl holding a golden cup. In the golden cup is a fish peeking up out of the cup. The Page of Cups is staring intently at the fish.
There is a wavy sea behind the Page of Cups and a clear sandy beach. In tarot, water always symbolizes the subconscious and emotions. The slightly rough sea denotes wishy washy emotions. They can be slightly turbulent at times. He is just at the beginning of mastering his/her emotions. The sky is clear.
The Page is dressed a little oddly. He is wearing that funny round hat with the sweeping scarf coming down and across his shoulder. The hat is blue. His jumper is also blue, but has pretty pink tulips on it running down in a row. His inner frock is pink. His golden boots match the trim around his armholes and his cup. We get the impression that he takes time and consideration into his wardrobe. He is fashion forward and could even enjoy fashion design and sewing.
