The Page in Tarot

I’m winding down to the harvest celebrations with daily indulgence in terrifying paranormal flicks like The Conjuring, Hereditary and It. The force to face mortality, the fantastical and the great beyond is strong.

As a card reader, I can’t help but notice a recurring archetype within these flicks: the page! In the Dark Days Tarot, a page is a gender-fluid messenger delivering mail from the universe to the soul, often youthful in spirit.
