Court Cards of the Tarot
The Court Cards are the 16 face cards of the Tarot deck and can be interpreted by the Tarot Reader in a Tarot Reading in several ways.
The Tarot cards and their meanings have intrigued and fascinated many people over the centuries.
The Tarot consists of 78 cards of which 16 are Court Cards (similar to face cards in a normal playing card deck).
A Tarot Court Card can disclose much in a Tarot Reading and has messages to be revealed for the Querant (person receiving a Tarot Reading).
It is the interpretation, guided by psychic intuition of the Tarot Reader that can verbalise these messages to pass onto others in Tarot Readings.
A Tarot Reader will interpret a particular Tarot card in relation to where it appears in a Tarot Spread and the relationship with surrounding cards.
There are 4 Court Cards for each suit - Kings, Queens, Knights, and Pages (sometimes the names differ in different Tarot decks and can be known as Kings, Queens, Prince and Princess.)
These cards in Tarot Readings can be confusing at first. It can be quite difficult and challenging for the Tarot Reader to interpret the meanings of them and it takes some skill to get to grips with the several different meanings of each of the Court cards.
The challenge exists for Tarot Readers in interpreting these because the Kings, Queens, Knights, and Pages can represent actual people, events, or aspects of a person's personality.
Court Cards as representative of actual people you or the Querant knows
Court cards can often represent someone who is of significance in your
life or the life of the Querant you are Reading for. Parents, siblings,
spouses, bosses, tutors and friends can often be recognised within these Tarot cards.
Each of these Tarot cards indicate the age, sex, character and even eye and hair colouring of a real person.
Page of Wands for example can represent a child of either sex or
someone who perhaps behaves like a child. The colouring of the child
would be brown hair with blue or hazel eyes. Another example is that of
the Knight of Pentacles which indicates a man under 35 years of age. The
physical characteristics of the man would be brown hair with brown or
Court Cards as representative of an event or situation
These Tarot cards can often indicate and event in yours or the Querants
life. For example the Pages of any suit represent an invitation, gift or
opportunity related to their specific suit. So if the Page of Cups
comes up it can mean a new love, engagement ring or even the birth of a
baby as the suit of Cups relates to love.
Knights often show
movement in yours or the Querants life. So if the Knight of Swords shows
up it could mean a new course of study to undertake as the suit of
Swords relates to the mind.
When Queens show up in a Tarot
Reading they signify a time of growth and development, a time when you
or the Querant is taking practical steps to get the results they want.
Kings appear in a spread it can show the motivation or inspiration to
begin something. Making plans, coming up with ideas and thinking about
Court Cards as representative of an aspect of your personality or that of the Querant
Court cards in a Tarot deck most often describe a certain type of
person. The Queen of Wands is passionate, warm and outgoing while the
Queen of Swords can be sharp, brittle and aggressive. The King of Cups
is a sensitive, caring soul trusting his intuition whereas the King of
Swords is very analytical and logical relying on hard evidence rather
than gut feelings.
When one of these Tarot cards appears in a Tarot Reading
you are doing for yourself it may be indicating one of your personality
traits or qualities that you need to be aware of. Similarly if you are
giving a Tarot Reading to a Querant it can show some aspect of their
personality they need to perhaps subdue or develop.
Bare in mind
there is no definitive right or wrong way to interpret the meanings of
these Tarot cards in Tarot Readings. Remember the above possibilities but
listen to your intuition for guidance when doing a Tarot Reading.
