Pages are the messengers of our decks. So much that some versions actually paint them as Heralds. They serve the Royal figures of a suit in a more or less passive way. The Pages of Tarot have little power and are highly influenced by the cards around them. Still, they carry the essence of their suit and act as the bearers of important news. Their role is especially important when looking into the timing of a prediction.
The Page is usually the calling, the first spark. The idea that will later call for a plan of actions (and the intervention of a Knight).
