Tarot Card for the Day ~ August 13

August 12, 2009

Page of Cups

The Salmon

We haven’t seen this fellow since Juneteenth.  And he comes directly after the Page of Shields from yesterday.  So [altogether now] I guess it must be time to turn a new Page.  ArkArkArkArk! [Makes ya wanna go back to reading Dear Abby in the morning, don’t it?]

Anyway, in Celtic legend, Salmon was considered the wisest of all creatures.  It dwelt in a great well overhung by the Hazel, the tree of knowledge.  As the fruit (hazel nuts) of the tree dropped into the well, Salmon ate them and grew greater and deeper in wisdom.

When this card shows up for a client, I share about the legend and then say something like,

“So, first of all, this card is a call to find meaningful opportunities to seek wisdom and increase your knowledge – scholarly pursuits may be perfect just now.  So get started on that immediately if  you feel some call to do so. 

“Beyond that, Page of Cups is a card of creativity.  So be prepared to explore how you may begin or expand creative projects starting today.   

“And in many traditions, fish represents spirituality.  Salmon is one of the only creatures on the Earth who returns to its place of  birth to procreate.  So this card speaks of a primal, powerful drive toward reconnection with Source − with the Divine, with Ultimate Reality, whatever name you choose to give to it.”

Some readers find the Page of Cups represents

a fair young person,


an imaginative, reflective, inspiring friend

So if any of these pop up in meaningful ways today, eagerly accept the gifts they bring.        

Know the wisdom you seek.   

Begin or ramp up your search now.

Give your creativity more free play in your life.

Open to very solid and inspiring reconnection with Source in beautiful, meaningful, transcendent ways.




Bright blessings, grace and peace!
