Page of Pentacles Description and Symbolism
The Page of Pentacles looks the least child-like. She is slightly turned to the right. She is looking at the pentacle she is holding. It looks like she doesn’t have a firm grip on the pentacle. She is unsure of how to hold it and is balancing it on her fingertips. This indicates that she is at the beginning of her craft. She’s taken the unmanifested energy of the Ace of Pentacle and is now learning to use it.
The Page of Pentacles is wearing a green tunic over an orange shirt and leggings. Her boots are basic brown. On her head sits a silk tubular shaped red hat. A gauze scarf is hung around the hat. Women usually wore these in 14th century Medieval Europe. The hat looks exactly like the Page of Cups hat, except in a different color. This indicates that the Suit of Pentacles and the Suit of Cups work together and are complimentary to each other.
The sky is yellow, which represents intelligence and warmth. It also indicates that the sun is rising. The Page of Pentacles is the type who rises early to get things done. She may like the expression, “It’s the early bird who catches the worm.”
There are a cluster of trees in the background and compared to their size they don’t look full grown, though they stand firm and erect. There is also a small plot of land that the Page of Pentacles is cultivating and nurturing. There are rows of planted seeds that have not yet grown. It will take time to grow the seeds into fruit and harvest them. This indicates that she is at the beginning stages of development. The stable and a calm looking blue mountain in the background reinforces the Page of Pentacle’s solid perspective, thus encouraging her to keep going.
The earth all around the Page of Pentacles is fertile and green. There are small yellow and red wildflowers growing around her feet. This symbolizes her nurturing qualities and how things grow naturally around her when she is attentive, but these aren’t cultivated roses or lilies. These are wildflowers that are not yet under the control of the Page of Pentacles.
