Tarot: The Court Cards
Each suit in the Minor Arcana has four (4) Court Cards and are typically divided into King, Queen, Knight (or Prince) and Page (or Princess).
The King and Queen card represent power and expertise, experience and mastery but can also represent being stuck in your ways, immobile and unable to change. The Knight and Page cards represent untapped potential that is creative and flexible - willing and able to try new things even if somethings things don't go to plan.
The King and Knight cards represent Yang "Masculine" action energy. Yang energy is always starting and stopping, changing direction, breathing new life into a project or situation and always on the go. The Queen and page cards represent "Feminine" Yin energy. Yin is always at peace with the ebbing and flowing of the tides of life, watching and learning, wise and thoughtful. Yin teaches us to pause for a moment and notice what's really going on rather than springing into action before we've truly understood all the parts at play.
In total there are 16 Court cards in a tarot deck (Four Court cards in each of the four suits) which can sometimes be used to represent people in your life. The King and Queen cards can represent mature men and women while the Knight (or Prince) and Page (or Princess) cards may represent young people who are still exploring who they are in life.
Pentacles represents down to earth, practical and sensual people
Swords represents thoughtful, studious, intelligent people
Wands represents fiery, creative, passionate people
Cups represents caring, emotional people who have deep relationships
The combination of these four Court cards combined with the four suits can pinpoint specific people in your readings.
