Page of Wands Description
This description is based on the Rider Waite deck. A young Page holds a wand which has green shoots, a sign of growth. The wand he holds, is the Ace of Wands, which represents a new opportunity. He wants to tell you about this opportunity. He stares towards the sky, implying he has a great vision for your future, and says, what is on offer now has lovely potential. It will require your energy and enthusiasm. As wands represent action, the news he delivers may be related to work, study, travel, a passion project or another personal goal.
Court Card Personality Traits
As a court card, he or she is a young person with an impulsive and excitable nature. Their fundamental pursuit in life is personal development. The search for their gifts and passion, IS their calling. It is the fuel that lights their fire. They are focused always on discovering who they are and what they were born to do best. This is why new experiences excite this Page, all doors open to more self-discovery. There is a great sense here of being a free-spirit and the rules not applying.
Wands are associated with fire signs in astrology, so this person may have Aries, Leo or Sagittarius in their birth chart.

TIMING: Does The Page of Wands Predict any Particular Timeframe?
🕔 This card is only a timing indication when you specifically asked a timeframe question. For example, if you want to know if something will happen, and when, then you need to draw two separate cards. These are in fact, two separate questions. This is a fundamental principle to understand if you want an accurate tarot reading – and it is core to my teaching in my book Tarot in 5 Minutes.
🕔 Using my timing method, the Page of Wands is about 11 weeks. If the card is reversed, timing will be slightly longer – so up to 16 weeks (4 months).
Karina’s Timing Method:
Swords are days. Wands are weeks. Cups are months and Pentacles are years. Please note this is my personal timing method. Feel free to adopt it (or not).
