Page of Wands Description and Symbolism
The Page of Wands looks like a child with shoulder length auburn or reddish blonde hair. For a hot desert, she is wearing heavy garments. Her dress is yellow with black salamanders on it. The salamander is trying to eat its tail. This gives it a circular shape. Salamanders are featured through out the Suit of Wands. The salamander shape does not close completely, which represents having much to learn. She also wears heavy draped orange and red scarves that reach down to her yellow boots. The fringe around her boots looks like flames. There is also a rope that rests on her shoulders, but is mostly hidden by all the fabric.
She is wearing a white hat with a small brim. There is a re d feather coming out from the side of the hat. The feather may speak to the Page of Wands lofty ambitions to reach the sky and even transcend the material world. Feathers also symbolize travel and speed, which is exactly what pages in the tarot represent: messages. Feathers are used by the ancients to invoke the Gods of the Sky and to communicate with the spirit world. Specifically, in tarot red feathers represent human’s evolution from the vegetable kingdom into the human kingdom. If we look at the difference between the red feather on the Page of Wands versus the Knight of Wands, we can see that the red feather certainly grows and flourishes from page to the knight. The Knight of Wands also symbolizes messages, but on a much, much larger scale as indicated by his gigantic flowing feather.
There are three triangular pyramids in the background. The hot, red earth looks dry and cracked. The entire picture is colored with reds, oranges and yellows of varying degrees. The ground is a plethora of different shades of red all having a defined border. They move like wavy lines around the three orange pyramids in the near background. Reds, oranges and yellows are desire, passion, action, will and movement.
The Page of Wands looks intently at her wand. She holds it erect and motionless as she tilts her head slightly upward. Perhaps this indicates that she is always ready to rise to the challenge. She is a very determined girl.
