Page of Pentacles (Week 1)

I hope to post a card for study, learning, and advice for each week thru 2013!  For our first card, we will take a look at The Page of Pentacles;

Invitation to: Humble Beginnings
Engagement in: Delivery of Good Fortune
Affirmation; With every breath I am growing more into the self I am to be.
Meditation; "How does the oak know the seasons ahead in order to grow strong?"

Actions;  Make a new step of any kind, whether a speculative venture or exploration. Pay Your Bills.  Make fixed appointments.  Plan for the week ahead.  Be fully prepared for an activity.  Honor your commitments.
(From "Around The Tarot in 78 Days" by Marcus Katz and Tali Goodwin) 

The Pages Represent Earth Energy in relation to their suit.  For Example, The Page of Pentacles is Earth of Earth (Pentacles), while the Page of Wands is Earth of Fire (Wands).   Much like the Aces, the Pages are the basic form of energy, the beginning. You can think of them as a child, or a young Page, just beginning on his adventure.  Not yet experienced enough to be a Knight, but full of a desire to learn, grow, and become!  The Pages have high hopes for themselves and the future that they create!

The Page of Pentacles, Earth of Earth is grounded by his practical nature, yet very driven by ambition.  Some key words for The Page of Pentacles; Effective, Practical, Prosperous, Trusting, Trustworthy, Diligent, Careful, Thrifty, Scholarly, Reflective, Realistic, Focused, Slow, Steady, Dutiful.  He represents planting seeds, nurturing the "seeds" you have planted,  being a student, paying attention to detail, and not neglecting our duties. 

"The Page of Pentacles is a messenger bringing you opportunities for prosperity. He delivers real chances to experience wealth, abundance, security and solid achievement - the wonders of the Pentacles suit. In your readings, this Page suggests that an opening may appear that promises enrichment, comfort, trust or the chance to make your dreams real. When you see such a chance, act on it!
The Page of Pentacles can also stand for a child or young-at-heart adult whose interactions with you involve stability, trust, commitment, safety and material needs. Sometimes the Page of Pentacles implies that your entire situation is suffused with the spirit of physical enjoyment. At such times, feel free to have fun with your body, skills and possessions in a lighthearted way. Revel in the delights of being alive on Earth at this time. " - By Joan Bunning from Learn The Tarot

The Page of Pentacles Says;
"I am the Page of Pentacles, and I am the youthful ambition that never grows old.  I am the voice from deep within that urges you to carry on and follow your destiny.  You need to examine carefully what strengths you posses and how to turn every possibility into gold.  I advise you to "speculate to accumulate"." By Marcus Katz & Tali Goodwin from "Around The Tarot in 78 Days"

As this is the first week of the new year, take some time to consider what ways you can make a fresh start.  The Page of Pentacles asks us to look more closely at our plans, be realistic, plan ahead, and take steps forward instead of "waiting".  Be humble in your life and with others, and try to see everything as an opportunity.  Have a look again at the top of this post, to the Invitation, (what this card invites you to do), the Engagement (what this card asks you to engage yourself in), the Affirmation, the Meditation, and the Questions to ask yourself.  Try to spend the rest of this week living as if you are The Page of Pentacles; and Have and Effect, Be Practical, Be Prosperous, and Be Trusting and Trustworthy!

Have a great week, and HAPPY NEW YEAR!
