Order in the Court Cards and Divine Royalty

THE TAROT COURT: WHENCE ROYALTY?


Court cards are often seen as notoriously difficult to read because they can mean:
1) An actual person one knows, has known, or will know
2) Character traits of the Querent relevant to a situation or question
3) Qualities to be considered and cultivated
4) The general theme or tone of an environment or situation
5) An event, news, message or communication (usually Pages and Knights)
6) The roles people play

However these meanings are interpreted within a specific context, they indirectly open out onto a wider significance in terms of:

Numerology: Four
Royalty and Family: Divinity and Community 

A Quartet of Pages






The character of the Tarot courts or "people cards" is applied and interpreted variously according to one or more of these registers. But it's a bit like being confronted with a piano keyboard and not knowing which key is being struck. I will chart an introductory albeit telegraphic overview then turn to sketch the underpinning through the Royal dimension of the cards.
