Are you the kind of person who finds it hard to feel loved? Does it seem that no one sees you or appreciates all that you do? This belief can show up in a number of ways and you don't have to feel like this is the case across the board, in order for it to feel true in certain places.
We’re born with the ability to let love in; hell, we know how to let ourselves be engulfed and totally suffused with love. Imagine a baby giggling and shaking with pleasure when their mother comes near; this is a natural and inherent state. Somewhere along the way, it gets trained out of us. We live in a very conditional culture- if you do this thing for me, then you can earn my love. If you behave according to my standards then I will give to you. If you don't do this thing though- forget it- you're out in the cold.
The Page of Cups shows up in a reading as an alert. Be on the lookout for messages of love all around you, or coming to you soon. Remember that love can come in many forms- affection, friendship, delight and tenderness, to name a few. You have to know how to recognize them though. If you're really fixated in your belief that you aren't acknowledged or appreciated or that no one really loves you, you’ll miss them. They’ll fly right by you, and this is a real tragedy.
You can see the young man on the card gazing at the fish- the fish is whispering to him. Try that. Allow the people, animals and things in your life to whisper their love to you in various ways. It won’t always come in the form you want it or expect it so be aware of your expectations. If you presume that love has to be delivered to you in certain words or specific actions or by a particular person, then you close yourself off from love, and that has nothing to do with what people are giving you, but rather, what you’re willing to receive.
Are there places in your life that you’re feeling simultaneously deficient of love and also not willing to receive the love that’s trying to come in? The Page of Cups is here to bring those areas to your attention.
