To give you a bit of context whilst you reflect on your own relationship to the card, here are a few key things to know about The Page of Wands.
Pages in the tarot often represent someone who is at the beginning of a journey and hungry to grow. Some tarot readers see them as stand-ins for specific young people or children in the life of the person being read for. The characters in page cards typically embody a sense of curiosity, a beginner's mindset, and a desire to learn and grow.
The Page of Wands, perhaps more than any other page, leans into pure curiosity. This Page is so open to giving their full attention over to whatever is in front of them that they succeed in being ceaselessly fascinated by the world.
As a suit, the Wands deal in spirit, passion, and creativity, and this card’s infinite curiosity points out how important it is that we fully invest our attention in the things that we care about. It promises that we will find ourselves infinitely inspired and impassioned if we commit to looking deeply into everything and anything that comes our way.
After all, the things that most spark our passions and creativity are so often the most unexpected things, so it’s essential to stay open to everything.
In your tarot journal, you’re asked to reflect on what this card means to you, now, in this moment, and what actions and thoughts it inspires in you. As you journal, pay attention to what you’re personally picking up in the card, but also consider what the key themes and symbols in the card might be telling you. How have you experienced creative sparks as a result of paying attention? What in your life is asking for your attention right now?
