Getting to Know the Page of Pentacles
The Page of Pentacles shows us how a natural interest in the physical world around us leads to exploration, experimentation and learning. The energy of this card is that of a studious person, someone willing to learn how to master the material realm. It does not necessarily represent the student cooped up in a classroom, with a teacher in front of him who is trying to stuff him full of conventional teachings. Rather, this is the energy of someone who has a genuine interest in and curiosity about the world around him.

As opposed to the Page of Swords, this learner may be more interested in exploring hands-on learning than intellectual and theoretical concepts. He does so with the same devotion and diligence as a student aiming for a top grade in any subject. But he does so out of pure joy in the experience of perfecting a useful skill.
A budding healer
In addition to practical skills, this exploration can include the mysteries of the physical body and alternative health. This Page showing up in a reading could indicate that now would be a good time to start some form of holistic healing studies, such as crystal healing or flower essences.
Affirmation: “I approach the natural world with reverence and desire to explore.”

Dear Mother-Father God, thank you for guiding me to new learning experiences that expand my sense of awe for creation. Help me be a diligent student of these mysteries for the Highest Good. Amen and so it is!
“Education is the kindling of a flame, not the filling of a vessel.”
