TODAY'S CARD IS The Page of Pentacles. This charming version is by Love Beth Drew:

For comparison, here's The Page of Pentacles in the Rider/ Waite/ Smith deck:

THE PAGE OF PENTACLES: Many years ago I had a reading by a psychic Tarot reader. He said that this Page in the position it was in indicated a "certain adolescence" that was not the best quality for me to encourage in myself. At the time this made sense within the reading as a whole, though I had to chew it over after the reading to come to that (:-D). To this day, whenever I see The Page of Pentacles I remember his comment. Only now I am thankful to have a "certain adolescence." At 62, I welcome this youth's presence in my inner community.


Pages in general: can indicate that energy has begun to unblock, or readjust, or move again. (The suit and placement of the Page should help identify what sort of energy.)

Don't let yourself be undermined by the essentially immature or simply inexperienced attitude or advice of someone around you.

Moodiness; stubbornness.

Can indicate an adolescent way of thinking/responding/acting.

Coming to conclusions too quickly without all the information.

This is it. There won't be any more to this situation. "That's all she wrote."

Learning how to limit one's behaviors to fit the situation.

Someone from your young adult or teen years may surface, for good or for ill.

A younger person has something important to teach you, if only by example.

You are in the process of learning about this issue. Give it time. You will know what to do soon enough.

Slow down. Take joy again in learning, which for children is often indistinguishable from play.
