The Tarot Court Cards: Archetypal Patterns of Relationship in the Minor Arcana by Kate Warwick-Smith
The Tarot Court Cards gives fresh meaning to the sixteen "face" cards of the tarot- the King, Queen, Knight, and Paige. Kate Warwick-Smith shows how these cards embody archetypal patterns of relationship that can be used by seasoned tarot readers and newcomers alike to achieve practical and insightful results. Using the Kabbalah, she reveals the special purposes of these cards as supporters, detractors, resources, and challenges in your inner or outer life. The author demonstrates how the court cards can be used to identify your true tribe or clan - the specific people who support you in unique ways. She also shows how the court cards can help you identify inner resources and challenges that enhance or hinder your efforts in the world. Using both new traditional interpretations, the book presents tarot spreads and potent techniques for contacting archetypes through meditation and pathworking.
