The Page of Wands needs no other reason for living than FUN! She brings a sense of pure exuberance and a catlike ability to enjoy the sunny side of life wherever she goes and no matter where the sun may be hiding.
Saints have no moderation, nor do poets, just exuberance.
~ Anne Sexton
She can be reckless but she means no harm. Her childlike ability to amuse and be amused is contagious.
She is the New Soul who is excited about life on Earth, or the Old Soul that has re-membered to appreciate the gift of physicality. In fact, all Old Souls could do with taking a leaf out of the book on this Page: It is almost ridiculous how much fun we can have on this planet if we don’t take ourselves too seriously!
This Page represents a principle that breaks up stale and stagnant energy. It can represent the very medicine we need if rigid thoughts and behaviour have filtered down to the physical level to make us dis-eased.
Make Fun Part of the Journey!
Just because we’re here on a mission doesn’t mean we can’t have a jolly good time. Whatever we are here to do can only be better with fun and laughter! The Page of Wands has a challenge for those of us who tend to take everything oh! so seriously…
Place yourself in front of a mirror and ponder your most serious and pressing problem. Repeat to yourself out loud: “This is very serious.” See how long you can do this before you start cracking up. You will quickly realise that nothing is worth getting your panties in a twist over… so smooth that furrowed brow and work on your laughter lines instead!
There is deep magick in honouring your desires and your own quest for happiness in this lifetime. This page has the direct line to putting enough mojo into any magickal working because she totally owns and acts on her desires without hesitation. This is Kundalini erupting without worry about the consequences and yes, it sometimes ends in disaster… but isn’t that how we learn?
You can have anything you want if you want it desperately enough. You must want it with an inner exuberance that erupts through the skin and joins the energy that created the world.
~ Sheilah Graham
