A figure stands calmly in a desert with a cloudless azure sky overhead and three pyramids rising in the background. He grasps a wand with both hands and examines the top of it. This individual is clothed in bright yellow, with a cape, fringed boots, and a pattern of lizards on a short tunic. This is the Rider Waite deck’s Page of Wands.
Wands denote primal energy and inspiration. Just as the wands in the Tarot deck often sprout branches of greenery, the suit of wands has to do with growth, expansion, creativity, and new life for things, people, ideas, and relationships.
Pages may represent children or young people, or the childlike qualities and behaviours of joy, innocence, enthusiasm, and playfulness. Negatively, pages may indicate immaturity, naïveté, an inability to make decisions and commitments, and impulsiveness — as in poor impulse control.
If a Page shows up in your reading, it may indicate a person, often a child or a young female. For the suit of Wands, the person may be ginger-haired with a ruddy complexion and light eyes. The individual may be an Aries, Leo, or Sagittarius, will probably be energetic and loyal, and will have a love of learning.
The Page of Wands may be bringing you passion — whether in romance or in a pursuit such as your work or a hobby. The Page means an opportunity is on the horizon for you to achieve your fullest potential — as long as you approach it with child-like happiness and enthusiasm while avoiding overtly dangerous and risky behaviour. So express your individuality and take advantage of this chance to change for the better.

It’s time to take a stand when the Seven of Wands shows up in your reading. The Rider Waite card shows a man doing just that – and guess what? He’s triumphing!
The man stands on a hill with a staff in his hands and a determined expression on his face. Below him, six unseen others raise staffs toward him, but he seems to be out of their reach.
Seven is famed as a lucky number – it’s certainly lucky for the man in the picture, because, after all, he’s winning! So yes, in the Tarot, too, seven is a magic number, a lucky number, a number of individuality and creativity. Wands also stand for creativity, so this card embodies the essence of success that results from creative solutions.
When this card is reversed or placed near negative cards, it may be saying you’re in a battle you can’t win, or you’re putting too much energy and struggle into your present conflicts. You may need to learn to pick your battles.
Otherwise, the card is telling you to use your mental abundance and develop creative ways to take a stand on important issues — whether they have to do with work, family, friendships or romance. “Be sure you’re right, and then go ahead.” Make sure you believe in your position — and in yourself. If your cause is just, the power of the Seven of Wands may make a difference in your life.

No Tarot card is all good or all bad.
Even the Death card can be positive, for it may refer to the death of something negative, such as the end of a cigarette addiction. In fact, it can be a very positive card, signalling that something is ending in order to be replaced by something much better!
Nevertheless, some cards are more auspicious than others.
The following are five of the most potentially positive cards in the Tarot deck.
What can be happier than a brightly shining sun on a clear day? In the Rider Waite Tarot deck the card shows a brilliant sun above a happy child on a horse. This card symbolises achievement, great health, warmth and affection in relationships, and mental clarity. When it appears, it’s saying you have a potential for greatness, whether in business, in a career or other pursuits, or in personal relationships. You also have the ability and the vision to see and understand the true nature of all that is going on around you. So let the sun shine in!
The Nine of Cups
It’s sometimes called “The Wish Card!” Be sure to make a wish the moment it appears. This can be a card about appreciation, about being grateful for what you have in life. The man on the card in the Rider Waite Tarot deck looks satisfied and well fed. He sits with a smile on his face, and the cups behind him are empty. He’s already gotten what he wants, and now he’s happy. This card, then, is about getting what you want. As always, however, be careful what you wish for!
The Knight of Pentacles
This Knight represents the rewards that can follow hard work. In the Rider Waite Tarot deck, he’s not rushing into battle; he’s sitting calmly on his faithful steed, contemplating the Pentacle or giant coin in his hand. Having persevered, the Knight has reaped his just rewards. When the Knight of Pentacles shows up in your reading, it may mean your persistence is about to pay off. Alternatively, because Tarot knights are messengers, he may mean you’re about receive good news.
The Three of Wands
This is another card about success. A man stands on a high cliff, watching ships sail below. His ships are about to come in, and so, very likely, are yours! This card is telling you to feel good about your accomplishments, whether those have to do with business, money, spirituality, career, health, or relationships. And if the accomplishments have not yet manifested, don’t despair – instead, prepare. Because this card suggests your ships will be sailing in very soon.
The Six of Swords
Okay, the suit of Swords is not the most positive one in the deck. It’s associated with conflict, and if you examine the pictures in this suit in the Rider Waite Tarot, some are downright scary. But this particular card, which shows a family making a journey by water, can mean you’re about to head off to a new, different, and better place, whether it be a relationship, job, or a state of mind. Your life is about to change for the better – ditch your baggage on route so you can be ready to embrace that change!

“Diamonds Are a Girl’s Best Friend”— Do you know this old song? It was sung by Marilyn Monroe in Gentlemen Prefer Blondes in the 1950s and imitated by Madonna in her “Material Girl” video in the 1980s.
The suit of Pentacles in the Tarot corresponds to the suit of Diamonds in a standard deck of cards, and when the Queen of Pentacles appears, she may well be your best friend, especially if you’re seeking prosperity, such as a raise at work, an inheritance, or a profit or financial windfall.
Pentacles refer to life’s material side: business, property, money, debt, work and so on. When in a positive position in a reading, almost any Pentacles card heralds prosperity and/or your ability to achieve it.
Queens in the Tarot deck stand for the feminine side of life, of course, and they tend to represent the essence of their suit. So the Queen of Pentacles can empower you to solve your financial problems, manage your money more wisely, get out of debt, stop being miserly, and manifest abundance.
In the Old Path Tarot Deck the Queen of Pentacles is dressed richly in green (the colour of abundance and money), and she leans on an enormous coin.
In the traditional Rider Waite deck, this Queen rules from an ornate throne in a gorgeous rose garden. Holding a huge golden coin, she’s flanked by a rabbit, symbol of fertility, resting in the lower corner of the card.
The faces of both Queens bear serene expressions. Each trusts her own abilities. Each is at peace with the material world.
The Queen of Pentacles wants you to trust your abilities and be at peace, too: you have the power to make the best decisions, to choose competent financial advisors, and to avoid con men and charlatans. Be down-to-earth and sensible. Don’t try to keep up with the Joneses, don’t worry about what others might think, and don’t take on debts you can’t afford. You can succeed financially, says the Queen, whether in balancing your budget, making sensible purchases, or being recognised and rewarded at work.
If you’re experiencing financial problems, this Queen cautions you to calm down and stop panicking. By letting yourself becoming upset or overwhelmed, she says, you might be making things worse. So do your best to get control of your finances. Be willing to work hard. Be practical and sensible. Then relax and put your faith in the abundance of the universe – and trust in the Queen of Pentacles.
