The Page of Pentacles (Moon in Virgo) often embodies a youthful and curious spirit, a childlike wonder and enthusiasm for learning, experimenting, and discovering new things. This can be expressed through a playful and lighthearted attitude towards life.
However, the playful energy of the Page of Pentacles may also be tempered by a sense of responsibility and practicality inherent in his association with Virgo. It is rather as if he were the eldest sibling of all the pages.
As Pentacles are associated with the earth element, the Page of Pentactles is grounded in the physical world and concerned with tangible results. Among the Pages he approaches playfulness and experimentation with a practical goal in mind, such as developing a new skill, achieving a certain level of mastery, or accomplishing a specific task.
The Page of Pentacles’ Association With Virgo
Being associated with Virgo, the Page may also speak to a heightened sense of perfectionism, or a keen interest in mastering the details. Virgo is ruled by Mercury, the planet of communication, intellectual and commercial pursuits. Virgo is a mutable earth sign which, in the context of the youthful Page of Pentacles tends to indicate a rather mercurial character in spite of his desire to appear responsible. Happily for us, however, this week begins with Mercury in Pisces sextile Saturn in Aquarius, creating a harmonious energy between the planet of structure and discipline and the planet of communication and imagination. This aspect can bring clarity to the mind, improve focus, and provide the necessary discipline and determination to put ideas into action.
In addition, since the Moon is waxing gibbous during the early part of this week, it seems a propitious time in which to draw the Page of Pentacles since the lunar energy and solar light is at its greatest. Therefore this seems as good a week as any to pursue new areas of interest or to work on mastering skills, especially those touching on commerce or communication, with a zestful vigour.
Moon Waxing Gibbous in Leo
With the Moon in Leo, the playful pursuit of such projects is emphasized, and there may also be a strong desire to gain attention, recognition, and validation in the pursuit of them.
However, with Saturn in Aquarius opposing the Moon in Leo, the the playful zeal of the Page of Pentacles is challenged by the demands of discipline, structure, and limitations, and in Aquarius, it may be urging the individual to unconventional solutions. The playfulness of the page may serve him well in that context if it can be harnessed to the discipline of Saturn.
Finally, it should be noted that, with the sidereal Sun deep in Pisces, there may be a heightened sense of spiritual connection and a desire to serve others in a practical way. Pisces is a compassionate and intuitive sign, and the energy of the Page of Pentacles can amplify this sense of dedication to a craft or service.
