Is there a card that continuously stumps you when it is drawn? Why do you believe this to be so?
I know the answer to this is yes, but I’m having trouble remembering exactly which card(s) it is. Naturally, most of the court cards are tricky little stumpers. Especially those Pages, for some reason. It seems that the court cards are the most difficult to interpret for many a tarot reader. I suspect this is probably because they mostly just show people, sitting/standing there; not like in many of the other cards where there are actual things happening in the illustrations.
I read about a technique for getting better acquainted with the court cards, and it seems like a great idea. The suggestion is to think of a person you know who is well represented by the characteristics of each court card. Then, each time you see that court card, you will think of that person and have a good idea of what kind of person the card represents. Sounds super awesome, right?
My only problem is that I generally try to avoid people, so I don’t really know SIXTEEN WHOLE PEOPLE to represent all of the different court cards! Sure, I’ve got a couple down, but still many of them are left as unknowns, waiting to watch me flounder when they show up in a reading. Perhaps, someday, I will buckle down and work on this more. That day, however, is not today. Another tarot project for later in the year, perhaps.
