What does the Page of Wands tarot card mean?
The Page of Wands brings a sense of discovery and possibility into your life. When this card appears, you may feel inspired to start something new, even if you don’t know exactly what that something is yet.
Although there are other cards that speak of ideas and potential, what makes the Page of Wands unique is that it points to the inspiration that lies within you. You probably aren’t feeling struck by something external you encountered. Instead, you might be pondering an abstract concept. There’s likely to be a feeling of potential that has yet to be made concrete.
The Page of Wands encourages you to embrace this new energy without taking things too seriously or forcing it into action before it’s ready. This is a time to follow the flow, rather than push yourself to come up with hard plans.
Like other Page cards, the Page of Wands can be a bringer of good news.

What does the Page of Wands card mean in a love reading?
The Page of Wands brings a carefree, adventurous spirit into your love life, although not necessarily one that lasts. This energy may come in the form of a specific person who embodies that uplifting energy.
If you’re single, you might meet someone new who oozes charisma and joie de vivre. Be warned, however, that their childlike enthusiasm has the potential to turn your life upside down. As the saying goes, a candle that burns at both ends lasts half as long. If you get too swept up in the thrill of this new connection, you may find yourself feeling disoriented or hurt when it ends sooner than you hoped. If you’re able to live for the moment with this person, your shared time can be incredibly rewarding.
This court card can be challenging to interpret for those who are in relationships. If things have been going well, its meaning may tend toward the “good news” interpretation common with Pages. However, if there’s been a sense of restlessness and a lack of commitment within your relationship, the Page of Wands may be hinting that there’s a lack of long-term compatibility here.
Perhaps you need to get out and play together more, which this card can suggest. If you plan on experimenting with consensual non-monogamy, make sure you set clear boundaries and agreements before you open that door.

Page of Wands Tarot Card in Reverse Meaning
When the Page of Wands shows up in a reversed position, the detrimental aspects of this card’s energy may take center stage. A predilection for springing into action can mean being overly impulsive, for instance. An adventurous spirit can devolve into recklessness.
Other times, this card’s appearance may pertain more to the opportunity itself. While you might be finding the seed of an idea and feeling some energy around it, you haven’t been able to take meaningful action yet. The Page of Wands in reverse invites you to take stock of the situation. If you’re being hampered by obstacles beyond your control, it might be the case that the possibility here simply isn’t ready to be realized.
And like other Pages, when this card appears in reverse, it can be a harbinger of bad news on the way.
