“I am enough of an artist to draw freely upon my imagination. Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world.”
~ Albert Einstein
It is the power of emotions that fuels the thoughts of the Page of Cups. Beautiful scenery, a horror story or a classical masterpiece can take the mind of this imaginative youngster on a rollercoaster ride because her mind is impressionable and responds quickly to feelings evoked by what goes on in the world around her.
Her dreams are usually vivid and out of all the Pages, this is the one who has an imaginary friend that hangs around even after she has started school.
She falls in love very easily from a young age, because she is so connected to the Source of love through her imagination… but she needs the discipline of the mind/Air, the judgement of Fire and the grounding influence of Earth in order to begin making wise choices. Relationships are often the downfall of this person who is not always someone young in years but always someone young at heart.
At times she will seem aloof, with a far-away look on her face. The harsh reality presented through the ‘news’ can be too much for this sensitive soul. In school, she does best under the guiding hand of a teacher who understand the importance of imagination and who encourages creative self-expression.
One day she will make a great parent because she is forever connected to her own inner child through the power of imagination.
“Imagination does not become great until human beings, given the courage and the strength, use it to create.”
~ Maria Montessori
Affirmation: “I am the master of my imagination, whether awake or dreaming, and I use it for the highest good of All.”
