Page, Princess or Knave?
Her gold circlet, the yin-yang symbol she carries, her location amongst woods, her plaits, and of course her gender, all link this card to the Thoth deck. Here we do have an element that links to the Marseilles - in that card, too, the Page has two round golden objects, though his are both identical pentacles. And what of the RWS? Her child-like appearance and her position on the card (not seen from below as in the Thoth) connect us with the RWS. However, the colour and style of her clothing is original to this deck.
She seems grounded and balanced, a little serious, and very much nature-based. I'm not quite sure what to make of the fact that her yin-yang symbol seems to be in motion - perhaps the dance of opposites?
I am grateful for the learning, both practical and spiritual, that can come from studying nature and the physical.
