The Basic Meaning of the Card (Rider-Waite)
The Page of Wands is one of the court cards in the Minor Arcana of the Wand suit and represents enthusiasm, creativity and new energy. The card’s image shows a young person holding a wand, which symbolizes that they are ready to act on their ideas and inspiring thoughts. It represents that we must sometimes be open to new ideas and energies and that we should follow our passion and creativity to reach our goals.
When the Page of Wands appears upright in a tarot reading it indicates that it is a time of enthusiasm, creativity and new energies.

If the Page of Wands is reversed in a reading it can indicate that you are feeling insecure or scared to follow your creative impulses and ideas.
