The Court Families can be a little intimidating to Tarot Students – they can be hard to tell apart and confusing to memorise. The best way to remember their personality traits is maybe to choose a person (real or fictional) that fits each card.
Don’t know where to start? I have put together one adjective and one descriptive noun for each of the Courts.
Page of Cups: Sensitive Messenger
Page of Swords: Curious Investigator
Page of Wands: Risk-Taking Explorer
Page of Pentacles: Opportunistic Student
Knight of Cups: Charming Romantic
Knight of Swords: Intelligent Debater
Knight of Wands: Passionate Adventurer
Knight of Pentacles: Disciplined Worker
Queen of Cups: Loving Mother-figure
Queen of Swords: Strong-minded Mama-Bear
Queen of Wands: Confident Social Butterfly
Queen of Pentacles: Practical Domestic Goddess
King of Cups: Diplomatic Role-Model
King of Swords: Respected Regulator
King of Wands: Inspirational Mentor
King of Pentacles: Dependable Provider
Of course, there’s more to all of them than meets the eye, and plenty more to be said about them ~ but it’s a starting point!
