The reversed Page of Wands stands for new ideas or goals that we can’t seem to get in motion regardless of our best attempts. This can be caused by various factors but at its core it represents that we keep finding obstacles in our way, whether they come from outside or from ourselves.
When it comes to things in our control there are usually two main ways to read the card. Maybe you have many ideas for new projects or ventures, but you can’t seem to get all the small details in place. This card can often represent people who are abundant in imagination but have trouble lading down their ideas. Inspiration is of course a vital step to fulfill any goal, but you might need some help to transform those ideas into realistic plans.
The card however can also represent the other end of the balance. You might be lacking ideas, creativity, and flexibility. You are feeling stuck and can’t think of anything to advance in your goals or find new objectives. Stagnation is often a symptom of being tired, so a break or meditation might help boost your creativity.
Of course, sometimes the card will warn us about factors outside of our control. External factors might cause a work project to get delayed or canceled altogether. In these cases, it’s important to be patient and let those obstacles reach their end to try again.

Reversed Page of Wands Meaning for Money and Finance
In finances, the reversed Page of Wands usually is foretelling or announcing a period of financial instability, usually one caused due to a lack of foresight. It’s very possible that in recent times you had a period of financial abundance and you might have overextended your resources as a result. Large investments that have yet to pay off might be affecting your current stability. Or maybe the fees of large purchases are now taking their toll on you.
Money like everything else in life isn’t fixed and unchanging. We all tend to experience periods of growth and decline when it comes to our finances, and this setback is teaching you to plan ahead of time. Periods of abundance are great for investments of course, but it’s always important to keep funds for later. An economic setback can come at any time, so you must learn to use times of abundance to prepare for less fortunate times.
