Page of Wands Description

Standing fearlessly in the middle of a desert, a well-dressed page faces a staff that he is holding upright. With his head held high, he exudes confidence and passion.

The salamander-like fabric used to design his shirt represents fire and transformation, while the color of his attire (orange) stands for vitality and courage.
Although the setting around him is dry and barren, it is evident that the Page of Wands believes in himself and his abilities wholeheartedly. Even in the most unlikely places, like the dry landscape, he’s able to find potential and makes things happen.

Money and Career
The Page of Wands represents the freedom to do what you love and what you want. If he shows up during a money or career reading, you are right on the verge of discovering something that will lead to a more secure future.
It could be that you have just started a new job, are in the planning stages of a business, or want to jumpstart a community project.
The Page would suggest that you show optimism and be the first one to volunteer. The things that we are most excited about are the same ventures that lead us to overall success.
Love and Relationships
The Page of Wands can represent a few different things in a love reading. If you are single, he might pose a partner with whom you will start a whirlwind romance. Charismatic and charming, you will attract to this person like a magnetic.
Although this might seem like a good thing, you must be careful not to get swept off your feet by charm alone. Many narcissists practice this ‘fairy tale’ behavior as a way to manipulate.
Be optimistic, but not naive, and the situation will play out exactly as it should.
If you are already committed, this Page can represent someone who is fun and outgoing but not able to move past his (or her) childish ways.
You might find that even though you are ready to move to the next level, your partner is just not ready to let go of his/her desire for freedom and autonomy.
If this is the case, you will need to really think about what you consider a ‘dealbreaker’. Then move on accordingly.
Health and Spirituality
You need to get moving–physically, mentally, and spiritually. You have been stuck in a rut for a while, and the Page of Wands has appeared as your ticket out of the situation. If you’ve been sick or depressed, exercise might be the key.
The Page of Wands is also an invitation to start or continue your spiritual path or journey. Be curious and focus on learning as much as you can spiritually. Creative outlets are always a good place to start.
Read, meditate, consult tarot, paint, fast, pray, practice Reiki, etc. You can also seek advice from a mentor or someone with spiritual wisdom.
Reversed Page of Wands
Think about all you have learned about the Page of Wands in the upright position and flip it. This is the Reversed Page of Wands.
The Page of Wands Reversed symbolizes the negative personality traits that come along with having an outgoing personality.
You (or the person in your life represented by the Page) may be impatient at times, naive, and too playful to get the job done.
If the Page appears in a flipped position, don’t fret. His good qualities are still present. You’ll just need to make sure that immaturity within yourself or others doesn’t stop you from accomplishing all you set out to achieve.
On the other hand, the Page of Wands reversed indicates that there’s something new brewing inside you, but you don’t know what to do with it or how to turn this into something tangible.
Just be patient and accept that this idea is still in the child phase. Instead, let it grow inside your mind and wait for it to bloom. You won’t regret that!
Page of Wands: Yes or No
There’s no doubt about this one. The Page of Wands in a Yes or No reading represents an affirmative ‘yes’. Especially when connected to things that require a leap of faith.
Although it is good to plan things out, doing so with creativity, enthusiasm, and a ‘yes, I can’ attitude will make the challenges that pop up along the way much easier to manage.
