Pages are wild cards as I’ve discussed in a previous post on Court Cards. When a Page card is present in a reading, it denotes a sudden shift in a situation brought by new information. It can also indicate a positive or negative event that has upended your tidy, little world.
Since the Wands represent fire, this card deals with matters of the Spirit. Perhaps you’ve received an intuition, a gut feeling, or an aha moment about how to live your life more fully. Perhaps a message will come that you will resist, and the inner turmoil will create a blockage in finding your joy.
In a reading, you are asked to be receptive to signs from the Universe. Embracing the change will give a better idea of how to ride the wave and effect the best outcome.
If this card appears in the present or future positions of a reading, you are advised to take all signs into consideration, no matter how odd. Signs can take the form of billboards, reading a passage in a book, an overheard conversation in the grocery store, or even the words of your child(ren) or a stranger on the street.
The stranger will be as surprised as you. I’ve heard, “I don’t know why I said that,” so often that I can’t deny the existence of something greater than humans, a collective of knowing energy that directs my actions if I am aware.
If this card appears in the past, you may feel a bewilderment over the suddenness of the shift. Accept the guidance offered in the experience and revisit the signs that have come from the Universe without your awareness. Guidance comes from awareness and gratitude for the beneficence and support of the world around you.
This card also speaks to standing your ground. Fire is a suit of action and will. Truth is implied in this suit and you may either embrace or resist the Truth. Your task is to find out which by sifting through the past and present to develop an awareness of the next step.
The Tarot is not an oracle. It’s up to you whether you accept or deny Truth. Objectivity is a difficult skill to master in one’s self. Treat the cards in each reading as a sounding board and a guide. No more. No less.
