One of the big things that separates adults from children is that children have a natural ability to live in the present moment.
Much like cats, children just want what they want, when they want it and they don’t really care what their parents (or their human owners) have to say about that. Hungry? Make some noise until someone feeds you. Want some affection? Jump on a lap and insist that you be held and spoken to.
The Page of Wands shows up in a reading to remind you that you still have that childlike capacity to live in the very heart of every moment. Wand cards represent the fire element and speak to energy, action and creation. When the Wands show up, they bring encouragement to seek the attention you want, with the added directive to be playful, creative and candid, about what you need.
The Page of Wands is childlike, gazing with wonder at his big magnificent stick, trying to decide just what kind of game to use it for today. The Page brings a freshness unencumbered by the jaded adult perspective that comes from being pushed into conformity. Adults have a hard time living in the present moment because we’ve been trained to either fret about the future or lament about the past, leaving the present largely ignored.
Where have you been a little sleepy lately? This is a message to wake up out of your adult stupor, and indulge in a little child-like, present moment passion. Tackle a challenge with gusto, get your blood flowing. Strut into that proverbial kitchen of life and demand to be fed (and then be super picky about what you’ll eat or not eat, and then maybe throw a noodle at someone just for the fun of it).
Make adventures out of everything.
