Cracking the court card code!


King of SwordsThey sit so smug and enigmatic before you – those members of the Tarot court… but which angle do you follow? Do you focus on them as people, events, messages or something entirely different?

Without a doubt, interpreting the court cards is one of the great challenges of reading the tarot. In this session Linda Marson shares her favourite way of reading the court cards. Depending on whether you use reversed cards or not, Linda believes they represent 16 or 32 ways of responding to situations. If you focus on the rank and element associated with the suit, you have a sure fire way of working with the court cards to see how your client and others in their lives are behaving towards each other and responding to whatever issue is being explored in the reading.

This is one of eight classes in Linda’s course, Live and Learn the Tarot, but it stands alone as a practical guide to the court cards. If you would like to purchase the other seven classes, email to receive a reduction on the full price of the course. For a comprehensive guide to the courts cards Linda recommends Understanding the Tarot Court by Mary K. Greer and Tom Little.
