Keywords for the Page of Cups
In the image on this card, we see a young child dressed in a blue tunic decorated with pink flowers. Except for his yellow boots, the rest of his attire adheres to this soft pink and blue color scheme.
The scene in the background is the most empty of all the court cards: we see nothing behind him except for gentle waves rolling across the sea.
There is also another interesting difference here: although here we see an empty sea, this page is holding a cup containing a fish, the only one of any of the court cards to do so.
The fish faces the page, seeming to stare straight at him, and our page looks directly back, proud of what he has made.
The Page of Cups has manifested this fish through the powers of his own creative imagination. He is artistic and inspired, and with a creative mind and an innocent heart, he invests the contents of his psychic or inner experience with such energy that the contents of his imagination become quite real to him.
