— Madonna

As mentioned in the post, Fucking Courts, court cards are one of the most controversial, as well as, confusing, overwhelming, and overall-stress-inducing modes of a Tarot Deck. Primarily, Court Cards either represent an aspect of us (the seeker) or someone within our lives, particularly someone upon whom we’ve ‘projected’ that part of our personality. However, they can also symbolize timing, qualities to embody, spiritual guides, and even events and situations coming into existence; thus making them all the more complicated to interpret.

The Court of Wands tend to be robust, creative, expressive and dynamic individuals. There is a spark to these people, and they are often the initiators and the visionaries in our environment. They have an almost childlike desire to be admired and appreciated and may…

Fucking Courts! – An Introduction to the Tarot Court

Tarot Quest

~ “Fucking Courts!” ~

—  Moi ^_^

Yes, I still say that whenever too many court cards appear within a reading. Especially whenever I’m just doing a simple no-frills 3 card reading, and two (and sometimes all three of them) are court cards. Earlier, I used to think it’s only me who had trouble reading court cards, but it turns out, virtually everyone I’ve come across (seasoned professionals, novices, and even Tarot Authors) have issues with the courts. So trust, me, you’re not alone in your frustration regarding interpreting court cards. However, if you say you don’t need any help regarding court cards and that they’re a breeze to read through, then you’re either the great grand master of all things Tarot and should have a shrine built in your honor… or, you’re just a cocky liar, so get off your high horse already 😛

~ “Money, pardon the expression, is like manure. It’s not worth a thing unless it’s spread around, encouraging young things to grow.” ~

— Dolly Levi (From the musical Hello Dolly)

The Suit of Pentacles is associated with the element of Earth. Pentacles signify the fruits of our labor, the results of the process we have been through with the other suits. They represent security, as well as, the literal ‘ground’ from which new ideas can grow. Pentacles also represent the value of physical experience, and are also our connection to nature and earth. Everything within this suit is tangible, real, and can be experienced in the physical level of existence. Within a reading, an excess of Pentacles could represent things like getting stuck in a rut, lack of imagination and stimulation, heaviness, sluggishness, and to some extent, even melancholy. A lack or absence of Pentacles could represent flightiness, lack…
