The Court of The Suit of Cups. Continuing my journey through the Court cards, the court cards, though puzzling initially are fantastic indicators of the people who are in, or are going to impact, the questioner’s life. I find it useful to describe the energy that I am picking up from any court card that appears as sometimes the questioner will recognise the personality traits and know who the card represents. Sometimes even if the card represents a different sex you can sense & interpret the qualities of the individual the cards are trying to portray. This is why I think it is wise to avoid learning a regimented meaning for each card & just interpret the person you feel coming through.
Each of my Pages indicates the seed of the personality of the suit. The Pages always bear messages related to the inherent qualities associated with their court.
Knights take the inherent qualities of their suit to the next level, the youths of the suit. Learning to trust in their choices & abilities, fight for their beliefs, sometimes in the extreme.
The Queens of each suit take the seed of the Page, the enthusiasm of the Knight and magnify these qualities to nurture & expand on the characteristics of their court to encourage development & growth.
Kings are the embodiment of the energy of each suit. The power that drives & commands their court. They are leaders, innovators, their ambition to achieve their goals is very motivational. Usually larger than life personalities, they will certainly command attention.
