The Page of Wands tarot card usually stands for a fiery, active, and creative person in your life. This is someone enthusiastic, loyal, rebellious, and full of life.
If this card doesn’t stand for an actual person, it can mean a new adventure, career path, or creative idea. If you’re not yet faced with a change, expect encouraging and exciting news soon!
When you see the Page of Wands card reversed, it can mean you’re filled with creative new ideas, but you don’t know how to bring them to life. You might feel scared to put yourself out there or maybe your efforts are being wasted. But don’t throw in the towel just yet!
You may need to rethink your approach and start fresh to make things work. Find a new way to express your ideas before giving up on your dreams.
The reversed Page of Wands can also mean you’re eager to start a new project, but there are many obstacles and challenges in your way. You feel indecisive and are lacking motivation.
Maybe your limiting beliefs are holding you back, and it’s hard to feel confident. The reversed Page of Wands can also show financial or career instability, and it can be a sign you need to get refocused.
Reading this reversed card using the “blocked/restricted” meaning
Okay, so now let’s talk about how to read your reversed Page of Wands card. First, you can use the “blocked/restricted” reversed card meaning. When you read your cards like this, you look for an obstacle standing in front of the card’s upright meaning.
So for the Page of Wands, this means something is blocking your inspiration and creativity. If you’re in a rut, shake things up and try something new.
Say you pull the reversed Page of Wands card thinking about your photography career. You have a job working in sales, but you’re also a passionate photographer with a huge following.
Typically, you book modeling shoots and do lots of boudoir-themed collections. Even though you love your work, lately, things have gotten stale.
You can’t find models who make you feel inspired, and you’re recycling old themes. Things have gotten so bad that you haven’t booked a shoot in months.
Here, the reversed Page of Wands card tells you to look to new sources of inspiration. If you’re feeling unmotivated, try a different area of photography.
Capturing landscape or still-life images might be a whole new area of opportunity for you. And even if it doesn’t lead to anything, trying a new style can motivate you and get the creativity flowing.
Don’t get down on yourself for being in a rut; it happens to everyone. But try something different because it might open doors you never expected.
Reading this reversed card using the “opposite” meaning
Another way to read your reversed Page of Wands card is using the “opposite” reversed card meaning. When you read your cards like this, you look for the opposite of the card’s upright meaning.
For the Page of Wands, instead of excitement and adventure, things are stagnant. What can you do to shake things up and bring some passion back to your life?
For example, you might pull the reversed Page of Wands thinking about your social calendar. You’re a single man in your 40s and mostly, you’re content with your life.
You have a good job and a few close friends who’ve been with you through thick and thin. But for the most part, you keep to yourself, and your routine is the same day after day.
Sometimes, you feel you’re letting life pass you by, and it’s weighing on you. You’ve considered going out on dates or making new friends, but it’s been so long, you don’t know how to get started.
Something needs to change because every day, you feel less passionate about getting up in the morning.
Here, the reversed Page of Wands tells you not to get down on yourself for being comfortable in your life. You have a great one, and there’s nothing wrong with wanting to keep things peaceful and reliable.
But if you want to get out more, going on a date or meeting someone new can be a great way to bring back the spark of life. Try looking for people with common interests and go from there.
You can meet people online in meetup groups or go to a dating event in your area to see who’s out there. Try taking a friend along with you for support and remember to just have fun!
Reading this reversed card using the “worse” meaning
You can also read your reversed Page of Wands card using the “worse” reversed card meaning. When you read your cards like this, you take the card’s upright meaning and put it in a negative light.
With the Page of Wands, this means you have lots of new ideas, but they’re not coming to fruition. Next time, build up your resources and do your research before moving forward.
Say you pull the reversed Page of Wands card thinking about your inheritance. Your father passed away last year and left you a good chunk of money.
It was more than you expected and kind of took you back at first. You’ve never had much money, and you weren’t sure what to do with it. So you started researching investment strategies to put it to work for you.
But you didn’t consult with anyone, so you’ve just been going with your gut. You’ve made some poor investments already and are down a few thousand dollars.
Here, the reversed Page of Wands card tells you to take a step back and re-strategize. You need to come up with a plan to make your money work for you. Consult with a professional or a friend with experience.
It’s normal to get excited and want to do things on your own, but if you want to build something, you need to get the proper resources and strategy in place first.
Reading this reversed card using the “no/not” meaning
Finally, you can use the “no/not” meaning to read your reversed Page of Wands card. When you read your cards like this, you put a “no” or a “not” in front of the card’s upright meaning.
So for the Page of Wands, this can mean “no adventure.” The path you’re on right now is stable but not exciting. Decide what’s important to you and move forward with your vision.
For example, you might pull the reversed Page of Wands card thinking about your job. You work as a paralegal for a mid-sized law firm and have been there four years. You always wanted to go back to school to get your law degree, but things got in the way.
Still, you love your steady work as a paralegal, and your job offers great stability. You’ve built up some savings and have a nice, comfortable life. But you are unmotivated and uninspired.
You still think about going back to school all the time, but you’re afraid you won’t be able to handle it. Here the reversed Page of Wands card tells you to go for it!
There’s never a time like the present, and this will continue weighing on you until you make a change. Take a chance on yourself.
The worst that can happen is it doesn’t work out, but with dedication, you can achieve your dreams. Don’t let your limiting thoughts hold you back. You can do whatever you put your mind to.
