Page of Wands. The Bruegel Tarot
The Bruegel Tarot

Type of person in an upright position:

The card usually indicates a male (sometimes female) child or adolescent. The hair is naturally red, copper-colored or light brown. The eyes are blue, green or light brown. The skin is light, sometimes with freckles, quickly burns in the sun.
If we are talking about an adult, this is a person who grew up in a family with the correct moral guidelines. He comes from a simple, “worker-peasant” family. By nature, the person is ardent, open, cheerful. Easily fires up with ideas, but if he does not immediately start implementing them, he quickly cools down to them.
The Page of Wands is honest, a good performer, but not diligent. By virtue of natural honesty, he can strain and fulfill the assignment, as soon as he has promised. But do not leave the matter to his discretion. He’s not a go-getter. The Page of Wands prefers to receive a clear task rather than sculpting clouds out of thin air. He needs clear instructions.
For the questioner, the Page of Wands, like any other Page in the Tarot, in the spreads can mean a younger relative: a brother or sister, nephew, grandson or the questioner’s own child.

Type of person in a reversed position:

A child from a dysfunctional family. Juvenile delinquent, vagabond, social orphan. If we are talking about an adult, this is a person who is out of work. He loves to chat about the injustice of the universe, but he will hardly make an effort to radically change something in his life. Overall, he is content with everything.

Arcana’s warning

Before you act, take a sober assessment of your knowledge and experience. Perhaps, for some projects, self-confidence alone may not be enough.

Final Advice of Arcana

Feel free to use the opportunities you meet, do not be afraid to try something new and always believe in yourself.

In an Upright Position:
Respond quickly to changes and don’t miss out on good chances. If you get an offer for a job – actept it, otherwise you will miss the opportunity for career growth. A blind date is approaching – do not hesitate, the acquaintance will be promising.
In a Reversed Position:
If you missed a chance, it doesn’t matter, there will be a new one. Learn from mistakes.


The Page of Wands is a Tarot card that makes it possible to think about how strong your moral principles are, whether you can be an honest and worthy person whom people can believe, and also whether you are an adult enough person to make informed decisions.
