Self-Care with Page of Pentacles

Welcome to Self-Care with tarot! Each week we will go over one tarot card and explore how it can be used to inspire a self-care activity for the week. This week is the Page of Pentacles.


Introduction and Meaning of the Card

SC-p11-01

If you haven’t already, you can explore the basic meaning of this card here, from my Exploring Tarot series, and you can explore the emotional meaning here, from my Emotional Tarot series.

With that said, in the context of self-care, I take this card to mean to trust yourself enough to handle uncertainty.


My Suggested Self-Care Activity for the Week

Based on the meaning of this card, the activity I would suggest to try doing each day until next Wednesday is to acknowledge that you can’t control or plan out everything in life, but you still have the means to accomplish what you need to one step at a time.

There needs to be a balance between structure and flexibility. This page reminds you to have the flexibility within your structure to take on whatever unexpected thing comes up as you work on your goals. It’s a concept that also gives the assurance of when you embark upon a brand new project that you have what it takes to see it through even though you might not have any idea how you’re going to get there yet.

The bottom line here is to trust in yourself and the abilities you have.
