Tarot Card ~ February 16

Page of Cups

The Salmon

Cortune Fookie: Know what wisdom you seek. Begin or ramp up your search or endeavor now. Give your creativity more free play in your life.  Now!


Hmmmmm….   mmm…  mmm-mmm-mmm…


Those of you who have some brain cells still functioning, or who actually pay attention to this daily metaphysical nattering, may remember that this was the card for the first of the year ~ and therefore for the whole year to come.  So this is a little reminder about what we need to attend to for this year altogether.  Right? 


In Celtic legend, Salmon is considered the wisest of all creatures.  He dwells in a great well overhung by the Hazel, the tree of knowledge.  As the fruit (hazel nuts) of the tree drop into the well, Salmon eats of them, growing greater and deeper and truer in wisdom.

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

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. Not tomorrow.  Not next week.  Today.  

And in many traditions, The 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.  Or perhaps a drive to return to a place you consider sacred — perfect at any time of the year, sure, but certainly important to put on your agenda for this PARTICULAR  year.

Some readers find the Page of Cups represents

a fair young person,


an imaginative, reflective, inspiring friend,

or that

It’s time to discover some new career direction that will lead you towards prosperity. [Show of hands… Anybody interested?]

So if any of these are meaningful to you, or pop up in meaningful ways today [including via an email Tarot card reading, already], eagerly accept the gifts that are offered!  And let yourself begin to act on the gifts.        

What this card recommends and requests, all in all, is

Know what wisdom you seek.   

Begin or ramp up your search or endeavor now.

Give your more free play in your life.

Let yourself contemplate, explore and pursue new career options.

Open to very solid and inspiring reconnection with


 in beautiful, meaningful, transcendent ways.





Bright blessings, grace and peace!

    I really like the quote by Jim Butcher (again!) The last word took me by surprise. But it was helpful. Stupidity just baffles me. What do you do with stupidity? Well, I suppose laughter can be most self-disarming …if there’s such a word… and will give that a try!

    ~ ~ Thanks!! Donna
