This could be a gift, inheritance, a bonus at work, money from the government, etc. However, the Page of Wands also mean that you might blow through this money too quickly.
It’s important that when you get the extra cash, you budget for the future. Try to be realistic instead of overly-optimistic.
The Page of Wands has a tendency to be short-sighted, so when it comes to money, the Page can mean that you’re doing well now but aren’t thinking about the future. You may learn some hard lessons if you don’t start being a bit more practical with money.
However, the Page of Wands is generally a good card if you’re just starting to make more money. It means you’re at the very beginning! You will need to learn wisdom when it comes to handling money, but you can generally expect your finances to grow.

Page Of Wands As A Person:
If you’re looking at the Page of Wands as a person, then it’s probably representing either a young person or someone who acts youthful.
The Page is typically feminine energy, but I find in my readings that it can also represent someone with boyish energy; someone not quite a man yet. Don’t focus too much on the gender of this card because I find that it’s fluid depending on the situation.
This person who the Page of Wands represents is passionate and excitable. They’re not afraid to take risks. In fact, they might even be thrill seekers.
Because the Page of Wands represents Sagittarius, this person might love traveling to new locations or learning new things. It’s all about the new experiences!
This individual might be bubbly and friendly. They enjoy meeting different people from various cultures.
However, they might have a lot of ideas but lack followthrough. This is the individual who loves new opportunities, but might always want something new instead of seeing through old ideas through.
Like a child, the Page of Wands is excited by all they discover in the world. They want to learn and experience, but they forget about what they’re leaving behind them. They’re probably a bit distractible.
Typically (though not always) the Page of Wands represents someone sociable. However they’re ultimately self-centered, not necessarily out of ego but because they have a childlike mind.
The Page of Wands is extremely positive, almost to their own detriment, so they might get in a bit of trouble. They always bounce back in the end, though!
This person forgives the shortcomings of others and sees the best in everyone. Again, this might be to their own detriment, but they’re a great person to have on your side.
Page Of Wands Yes Or No:
If you’re pulling the Page of Wands for a Yes or No answer, you can be assured that it’s a definite yes, at least when the card is upright.
The Page of Wands indicates new beginnings in a fiery, actionable way. In fact, it really couldn’t be more of a yes!
Reversed, the Page of Wands usually means not yet. It’s not a definite no, but it does mean that you either need more information or that you/the situation must mature first.
Page Of Wands Advice:
Although you will want to read your specific section when you’re looking for advice on a situation, the Page of Wands generally means that it’s time to take action. Whatever you’re considering, go do it!
However, the Page also means that you should figure out a rational way to achieve what you desire. Stay grounded by follow your intuition and go with your ideas. The sky is the limit as long as you focus.
Embody the strengths you see in the people who inspire you. The Page of Wands as advice says you can achieve whatever you want as long as you find a viable path!
Symbolism In The Page Of Wands:
In every Tarot card, there is a whole myriad of symbols. In some readings, the symbolism will be extremely important, so I’m including the main symbols on the Page of Wands here.
Keep in mind that symbolism will vary based on the deck you’re using. I recommend looking closely at the pictures on your cards if you’re not using the Rider-Waite deck. The symbolism of the card you actually pulled is much more important than the general meaning! This is one of the reasons why I love using varied decks.
Salamanders are actually the elementals of fire. They’re really important, powerful creatures! In this context, I feel that the salamanders on the Page’s robe represent transformation. Typically, transformation through fire is rather quick.
These salamanders can also literally represent elementals wanting to work with you, if that correlates with your reading.
Orange is a generally positive color. It symbolizes non-romantic passion and determination. In this circumstance, I feel like the card is orange because the Page of Wands is so excitable and actionable without being too angry.
However, this orange landscape also refers to a desert. To me, this means that opportunity can be found in the most unlikely of places. The Page is excited and motivated even in the middle of the desert.
The fact that the Page is standing still suggests that he hasn’t actually taken action yet. His staff is still firmly planted on the ground. This means that it’s time to put your thoughts into action. Get up and go!

If you’re single, the Page of Wands reversed suggests that you have been pushing too hard for a relationship.
