REVERSED PAGE OF WANDS TAROT CARD MEANINGS
The Page of Wands reversed suggests that you have tried a few new ventures or projects but these have not been particularly successful. You may have had a vision to start a new hobby or project, with the view that it would lead to bigger and better things but you soon realised that you had taken the wrong approach and it wasn’t leading to the growth and development you had expected. You may have started to realise that you had not really focused enough on what your goals and objectives were and that is why you were not reaching the outcomes you wanted.
