Staves are the suits of stored energy, passion ~ the element of fire~ and it is a wand that Wizards use to make magick happen. Pages are the messengers of their suit, so you can look at this card as the Messenger of Magick.
It occurs to me that there is nothing really “super”natural (above the natural) or “para”normal (beyond normal) – we just name it so when it looks that way from our limited human perspective. As we discover more about Nature, we begin to understand that no thing can be outside it.
We may study the growth and energies of life with delight and innocent passion, as our Page studies her Wand.
If we take the trouble to write down our experiments in life and love, it becomes a sort of science because we can compare the results of yesterday against today. Ideally, with repeatable (or avoidable) results. This is an extrapolation, a logical conclusion to Arthur C. Clark who said “magic is science we don’t understand yet.”
So, if you find yourself fascinated by the highly unusual today, such as new life budding from a cut stick, make note: You may have found a fun ‘magic’, er, science experiment to try again later!
