Hi Naaz! In a relationship reading, the Page of Cups could be a youthful, sensitive soul--or one that is emotionally immature...a "dreamer" (rather than a realist). The Hierophant can be a spiritual or religious leader/influence in a person's life, or someone that "tows the line" culturally, racially or religiously. They may be big on "shoulds" and "musts"--a moralizing presence. If The Hierophant was coupled with, say, The Lovers or even the 2 of Cups--I'd say marriage is possible. Depending on the other cards present in the reading, Page of Cups + Hierohpant as a relationship outcome could mean: * Immature or sensitive youth forced into marriage for cultural reasons *Artistic, young-at-heart person pressured by religious mores that will affect the relationshp *Sweet child serving as a ring bearer/flower girl at a wedding *Dreamer hoping for marriage *Idealist assuming that "religion" will save his/her sweetheart Hope this helps!

Recently, some punk YouTuber made the statement that when the Tarot goes mainstream, the masses water down and damage the Tarot. That mainstream accessibility to the cards turns the Tarot into "shit". That Tarot is not supposed to be for everyone. That Tarot needs to remain under the domain of... Continue reading
