Intro: Page of Cups Tarot Card Meaning - learning about love

Tarot Alley uses the Rider Waite type of deck for our meanings, symbols, interpretations, etc.

When determining the Page of Cups tarot card meaning, you should consider that it’s a Cups card and a Page. The Suit of Cups represents emotions and relationships. Pages represent the young at heart with a desire to learn.

In this way, we can determine that the Page of Cups represents learning about love. The Page of Cups is eager but inexperienced which can lead them to overcompensate a bit.

Take a look at the Rider-Waite Page of Cups displayed to the left (or above).

What is your first impression?

What is up with that pose? Why is there a fish in the cup?

There’s no right or wrong answer here, just your interpretation.

Common Symbols

  • An Awkward Pose: to represent lack of connection with sober reality
  • A Fish: to represent surprising knowledge

Keywords & Concepts

  • Enthusiasm
  • First Impressions
  • Romanticism
  • Superficiality

The Page of Cups for Personal Growth

Affirmation: I am ready to embrace love.

Enthusiasm alone isn’t enough, you must also be practical. Do your due diligence and don’t let yourself get carried away.

And don’t forget, you can’t please everyone so just be yourself!

Ask Yourself:

  • How worried are you that others will see you as foolish or inexperienced?
  • To what extent can you be honest about your lack of experience in love?
  • How can you maintain enthusiasm over time?

Interpreting the Page of Cups

Generally, the Page of Cups represents learning about love. This is a time to embrace and demonstrate your feelings. Be free and throw yourself into romance. You can nurse a secret crush, start a new relationship, indulge in a fantasy, etc.

The Reversed Page of Cups

How you read reversals is a personal choice. You can ignore reversals and read them as if the card is upright (this is what I often choose to do) or you can interpret reversals as variations of what they would mean upright. There are 3 common ways to read reversals: as a negative interpretation, as an opposite interpretation, or as a block on the upright interpretation. Check out How to Read Reversals for more information.

Typically, a reversed Page of Cups represents romantic misinterpretations. Examples include:

  • Mistaking a crush for true love
  • Reading romantic intentions into innocent actions
  • Working too hard to try and impress others
  • Faking experience you don’t have

Examples of the Page of Cups

Specific Interpretations

Specific situations are the general interpretation (from above) used for a specific situation (love, career, etc). There is no need to memorize these (or even look them up) if you understand the general interpretation. However, here are some basic interpretations for some specific situations:


Why the rush? You’ve got plenty of time! Don’t mistake the bliss of infatuation for the enduring stability of love.


Keep your skills sharp by continually pursuing opportunities to learn. Appreciate the beginners in your workplace and use their enthusiasm but be wary of those who overstate their skills.


Don’t let your enthusiasm outweigh your knowledge. Make sure you’re well-grounded in your spiritual beliefs so that you can share your faith with others.
