Product Description

Synopsis

THE TAROT COURT CARDS sheds new light on interpreting the 16 "face" cards of the Tarot - the King, Queen, Knight, and Page. In contrast to the idiosyncratic and confusing interpretations that are presented in many tarot books, Kate Warwick-Smith has crafted a new method of interpretation that makes these cards more accessible and offers greater enlightenment than ever before. Using the Kabbalah, she reveals the core identities of the Minor Arcana's court cards and their special purpose in one's inner and outer life as both allies and shadows. She shows how the court cards can be used to identify your tribe or clan-the specific people who support you in unique ways, such as your mentor, champion, protector or healer. She also shows how the court cards can help you identify your inner sources and challenges-insight, discipline, passion or greed-that enhance or hinder your efforts in the world. THE TAROT COURT CARDS contains an all-encompassing interpretative guide to the Minor Arcana royalty, using both new and traditional interpretations. The book, also, presents new tarot spreads and potent methods for contacting these powerful archetypes through meditation and path working.

Both seasoned tarot readers and newcomers will find this book will help them achieve practical and insightful results.

Kate Warwick-Smith is the founder of the Order of the Hermetic Rose which is 'an association of individuals pursuing practices and studies in the Western Mysteries'. These practices are conveyed through the Tarot. She has been a member of the Servants of the Light School of Occult Science for over twenty years where she has been involved in training, teaching and supervising students. She has also written articles on the Tarot as well as this book. The author's stated intention in writing this book is clearly expressed as follows :- "this book reveals a new way to interpret the sixteen court cards of the Tarot deck, a method that offers valuable insight into our personal relationships" (p.1) and "one goal of this book is to open up the world of support to reveal exactly who supports us, how they support us, and how we can bring more of that into our lives..........A second goal of this book is to demonstrate how the court cards reflect our inner life...." (p.3)., i.e. how we relate both to others and to ourselves. The book is very well-structured, both in it's clearly defined chapters and in the information presented in each chapter. It begins with an exposition of how royalty, divinity, community and the individual can be seen to relate to the Tarot going back to it's beginnings several centuries ago. This is then followed by a detailed history of the Tarot Court cards with particular reference to their development in Asian, Arabic and European countries, neatly followed up by a look at the way the Court cards have been interpreted over the last two hundred years. In the next section of the book, Warwick-Smith looks at the powerful connection of the Court cards with the Qabala, first in it's simplest sense and then in much more detail at the Tree of Life.Read more ›

I have been studying the tarot cards, mostly as a tool for personal/spiritual growth, for about 2 years and have had trouble understanding the court cards properly from day one. But this book is simply terrific, and although I have only had it a few weeks, I have learned more about these cards in that time than in the whole two years before. I intuitively knew there was more to these cards than the silly lists of personality characteristics my previous books were referring to. And even when some books when a little deeper, I was still left confused and learning very little if anything about these people in our tarot deck. Here we learn for example that the Queen is Wands is "Seer" (or "Self-knowledge" as an internal strength). We learn the Queen of Swords can be our internal critic or judge in her negative role, or discrimination and our ability to make choices in her positive role. Suddenly I have learned to see in the court cards all my personal, internal strengths and weaknesses. I have learned they do not need to appear physically upside down in order to present their negative aspects of internal or external challenges, and that often when you draw a court card both the positive AND negative sides of it will be relevant to the reading.

This all sounds terribly confusing and complicated, but the book explains it waaaay better than me, and is an easy and enjoyable read that will leave you feeling as though you have been with a wise and skilled teacher who can make learning enjoyable and full of wonderful "aha" moments.

All I can say is if you are interested in learning about yourself, and in personal/spiritual growth, and you are using the tarot cards to help you in this, I can not imagine doing so without this wonderful book.

By Card Lover on 21 Jun. 2014
Format: Paperback
This book is most helpful if you find difficulty in interpretating the court cards. The author has quite a bit of information on each card, positive and negative meanings and questions to ask yourself if you are reading for yourself. My only wish was that she had put in what it means to have more than one of the court cards in a reading; I do have a book on this, but I would like someone else's opinion.
