So, I drew my card from Morgan Greer Tarot, and I'm not using reversals with that deck. I am still pondering whether or not I want to use them at all.... I already use reversed meanings to some extent (in "advice" or "obstacle" positions, usually, and in any other circumstances that seem to make sense). I've had some times where I've experimented with reversals and pulled one which seemed to fit very well....and then pulled another on another day where it was clear that the upright meaning was the correct one. So that has not helped sway me either way!
That said, I put the Page out of my mind all day, and even considered that it may not have been the "right" card for me, for whatever reason (we're on vacation, not in the usual environment, lots of distractions). I considered that, even despite what I've come to repeat often, which is "the cards don't lie." You may misinterpret them, you may not understand them, you may not want to hear the message...but the cards tell you what's up.
So nothing Pagey really happened all day. We settled into bed. Gabriel was a bit ill, but nothing serious. Just as I was getting ready to close my eyes, Jorge says "oh my God..." several times. Turned out that he had just received news of a death in his extended family which is having a major emotional impact on him. So.....there it was. The Page came bearing news. Emotional news...but not happy news.
This is the kind of moment that makes me in awe of the beauty of the cards, but also makes me second guess the value of using reversals. Though honestly, even if I'd have pulled the Page of Cups reversed, I probably would not have felt it fit my day any more appropriately. We can't really foresee this kind of thing, much less with a daily draw. Still, it's been a profound lesson for me.
