Another way to look at the Tarot Court

Court cards are the most difficult cards to interpret for most readers. The choices for interpretations are numerous and can confuse you.

Over the years, I finally settled on a way to take away the confusion. My system is compiled of what I've learned through reading and from other readers.

This system involves a particular keyword for each court card which represents the energies presented by the court card.

Queens represent the ability to ...
Kings represent having control over ...
Knights represent being focused on ...
Pages represent being open to ...

Each statement is completed by the keywords for each element.

For example: The Queen of Cups represents the ability to tap into your intuition. The Page of Swords represents being open to learning.

If you choose to use this system, your overall key statement may vary depending on your keywords for each suit.

During a reading, these keywords can expand as it does with any card in the deck.

For example: Seeing the Page of Swords in the outcome position, you may interpret that the client will go back to school and learn a new trade.

Your intuition will lead you to the final interpretation, but your mind needs a starting point.

Very intresting way to view court cards Cher. And I will admit I am one of those many who have a tough time with court cards. Kings = control, Knights = focus ...is something I am going to try in my readings. Will let you know how it works.

One method I have recently started using is linking each court card to a person I know in real life. Someone who I thinks fits the Card to the T. I have not been able to do that for all cards though yet.

Tarot Faith,

I'm glad you found the post interesting and I hope it works for you.

I've tried the linking the card to a person, but I've found it hard to do, as most people have a combination of personalities that match more than one court card.

THIS IS EXCELLENT!

I have always had an issue with the court cards. Whenever they show up my first instinct is to panic. lol This really does help put it into perspective. Thanks (again)

Whispering Path, I've had the same reaction to the court, and sometimes still do. I'm glad my method has helped.

Best wishes,
