On the cover of the Page of Pentacles, we have a verdant, brilliantly green field, with trees and tilled land just behind it. In the forefront we have a boy holding a shining coin with the pentacles symbol on the front. The boy himself is adorned in green and gold, with a luxurious red hat to top it off. He stares at the coin in his hand with awe and a smile, wondering what things he can do with it.
To start with, we'll want to disambiguate court cards. They are often the most difficult to read, due to their general nature. It is easier to remember that a court card often signifies a person or entity: the sex of the person may not match that of the court card, but the attitude and persona will seem familiar. If it's clear, however, that the court card doesn't refer to a person, remember to break it down further. First, define what the suite stands for – e.x. Cups generally refers to emotion. Then take the role of that court card and apply it to the suite – e.x. A Page of Cups would be a young juvenile in the world of emotion, just as the Page of Swords is the inexperienced lad of thought. This can help you to decide what the court card is trying to tell you.

The Page utilizes many aspects of the pentacles suite in it's description, so it's no surprise that it's paralleling cards are of the same suite. The Ace of Pentacles is the focus point for the Page of Pentacles card, so these two go well together – if you see them both in your reading, you know to pay close attention to your physical world and point your internal compass that way. The Knight of Pentacles also has a lot in common with the Page, though the Knight has far more negative aspects of the suite than the young, innocent Page does.
