Gem's Tarot Class - The Court Cards

Post by Gem » Mon May 21, 2007 3:25 pm

We are nearly at at end with our in-depth study of each tarot card. Last but not least are 'The Court Cards'. Many people are wary of these cards and find them hard to understand, so we will follow them in suits and look at them like small families..

The Rider Waite decks all have the same titles, Page, Knight, Queen and King. The Page can be seen as the youngest member of the family, the child, the one who larks around and plays and has fun, laughing and giggling and playing tricks, learning new ways to enjoy himself :) The Knight is the older teen, stronger, more assured and brave, learning the wisdom of the world as he travels on his horse to all corners of the world of knowledge.  The Queen, gentle, comforting, wise and full of sound advice, sitting in comfort, welcoming and wondering. The mother to all, the medicine woman that helps with kindness.  The King, the strong courageous masculine energy that blazes out from his throne. Full of strength, and an eternity of experience, stalwart and unbending.

In many readings the court cards can be interpreted as real people, supporting influences, members of the family or strangers we are about to meet. The main angle here being they are 'real people' as opposed to the Major Arcana that can be seen as spiritual levels or attainments.


I have posted the Court Card pictures below, its very interesting to look at the down columns as well as the family rows across. See which face which way and the background colours too. Seems like perhaps the Queen of Swords is arguing with the King?  Or has the King of Wands just given the Queen a flower?

What do you think it could mean to get 4 Kings in a reading or 4 Pages?

Have a quick look at them all then lets go and split the suits and discuss them one by one here http://mysticboard.org/vi ... 5233#95233
