Every suit is composed of 14 cards, and these cards are numbered from one to 10 consisting of four face cards. The so-called pages in Tarot are among those face cards.


The Meanings

Meaning of Wands’ Page.

The meaning of page of wands card shows a young boy who looks up at a big, blooming wooden stuff he holds. He stands in a desert and his clothing has a salamanders’ print. The illustration shows three things: optimism, not losing oneself, and growth or change.

The salamanders and desert also suggest the fire element which is attached to the wands’ suit. The card also means opportunities for change, optimism renewal, and remembering oneself or hope.

Learning may be practical or even spiritual.
