Inspiring Enchantment & Illumination with Tarot & Intuitive Guidance

Tarot Card of the Week: Feb. 16-22, 2009

The Page of Wands
Humanity has advanced, when it has advanced, not because it has been sober, responsible, and cautious, but because it has been playful, rebellious, and immature.
— Tom Robbins

This week, we have rare visit from the Page of Wands, a Court card. Neither as dramatic and spiritual as the Major Arcana’s big life lessons, nor as pragmatic as the actions, moods, and energies represented in the Pips (Ace through Ten cards), they are the four “people cards” for each of the four suits.

All of the Pages are messengers, portraying the innocent side of the suit, pointing to hopefulness, and new beginnings. And what an especially joyous, light-hearted energy the Page of Wands offers! Whether he is an actual child, or simply the child-like innocence that comes when we truly celebrate life, the sunny Page of Wands is the dancing spark of potential, magic, desire, and daring.

Let him speak directly to you, for his message is one you will not want to miss:

Hey! Yes, you! When did you turn into such a grumpy old grownup?

Lighten up! It’s time to laugh, sing, paint, sculpt, and dance. Life won’t wait.

Drop those sad old worry habits you’ve picked up. Turn off that pressure cooker you’ve thrown your life into. Unplug yourself from that depressing TV. Time to wave bye-bye to those stifling, annoying people and situations you’ve gotten so entangled with. And for once, could we please just not talk about banks and money and jobs and all that stuff? BORING!

It’s really very simple. Let’s go outside. Let’s take a walk on the sunny side of the street!

Just for this week, what if you played hooky at least a little while each and every day? There is something (or someone) whose passionate, siren call is singing your tune. Answer! Answer with all your heart.

Get silly. I am your permission slip to duck out the door and go play to your heart’s content. Buy yourself a box of crayons and a big pad of paper and go to town! Dress up in a funny hat like mine! Nurture your playful, magical child self. Go make some babies of your own! Maybe human children, or maybe those creative dreams you’ve longed for.

What feeds the flames of your desire? What joyful news have you waited for so long to hear? I’m here to tell you that now is the time, this is it. The delights you’ve secretly longed for, ached for — they are in your grasp now. This week.

Freedom and creativity are yours. And they are no accident or by someone else’s permission, dearie! They are your most holy and sacred birthright.

Olly, olly oxen free! Come out, come out, wherever you are. Let’s make magic! Let’s play! I double-dog dare you!

    If you go to Brazil from February 21st to 24th you can really experience the Page of Wands.
    Believe me, I lived there since I was born for 21 years.
    Carnaval, masks parties are celebrated in other parts of the world at different dates, but in the same time span.
    In Israel there is Purim on March 10th.
    There seem to be some pagan origin for this. Well everything in this world comes from paganism… :-))
    Love
