Page of Wands Tarot Card Meanings for Money and Finances
You may get some strange and exciting news from an unusual source. Don’t jump on any hot stock tips or investments without doing your research, but keep an open mind. Just because some young punk kid with facial piercings and a devil tattoo carries the message doesn’t mean you shouldn’t listen to it.
Both information and encouragement will shortly become present in your life. Release your fears about money and your past mistakes. Look toward the future and take action to fund your dreams.
Starting a new project or following a new interest doesn’t necessarily cost a lot of money, so don’t let that excuse hold you back. Brainstorm at least 10 different ways you can accomplish your goal or investigate a new idea without using money. Use your creativity in funding the project, not only in accomplishing it.
You may be starting a new course of study or career. This requires courage, creativity, enthusiasm…and money. Begin stockpiling your resources now so you have the flexibility to make the change when it comes.

Trust your curiosity. Use your creativity to blow past your usual excuses. The world is much more interesting, flexible, and open than you’ve been assuming.
Anything and everything is possible. You just have to believe it could happen. Knowing how isn’t your job. It’s your job to feed the possibilities with faith and enthusiasm. Let the Universe do the rest.
You may begin walking a completely new and unexpected spiritual path. This is exciting! Release your fears and keep an open mind to everything you encounter.
